    Yes my bitch was very sick and unsettled after using Drontal, that was a few years ago, since this eposode we have always used Milbemax chewable tablet but cant seem to get any and neither can my vet.

    Hope you dog is ok! What breed?

    She's had milbemax since we got her but vet suggested drontal this time. Think we will.revert to milbemax again next time.

    She keeps scratching to get under the seetee as if there was something under there; not interested in her toys, won't settle on our laps like she normally does.this time of night.

    Think we might do her a hot water bottle and put her to bed for the night properly in a bit and see if she sleeps.

    Very strange behaviour for her.

    She is a 9 month old chihuahua cross pug.

    Mine have always been fine with drontal, but all dogs will have different reactions to things. Your dog may just be better suited to another brand.

    Keep a close eye incase any other reactions, but some dogs do just get a little unsettled by it and then it calms down after a while.
