Drontal wormer reaction

3 posts in this topic

Last night I wormed my 3 dogs with Drontal -( I usually use Milbemax) one Borzoi and my Lappie showed no effects but my big male Borzoi - Bosco got very hypo- he paced and sang for hours. At first I thought he was just very hungry so I gave him some bones. I was seriously thinking of taking him to the emergency vet at midnight but he finally calmed down. He was up again at 5.30am and really hungry. After a big breakfast he went back to sleep.

 

I googled and apparently a side effect of Drontal can be hyperactivity ! I only got it because it treats hydatids and they have caught a couple of rabbits recently (something I don't encourage but it

happens )19055695_10210992840115015_9026984192057649360_o.thumb.jpg.d72354fcfe44ba90bf06cf5c0dcb524b.jpg

 

Anyone else had reactions ?
