    Hi all, I have just got a colliex kelpie who is gorgeous. We only had him 3 days before he was taken in to the vets for two nights.

    Hi, just wondering if anyone has experienced the same problem.

    We have just got an 11 week old collie x kelpie. As soon as we brought him home we took him to the vets to get his injections and wormed.

    The vet gave us Panacur and asked us to give him one sachet a day for 3 days.

    After each meal with the Panacur he became hyper and very thirsty. He seemed to scratch a lot and then after his third dose he fitted every 5-6 hours for 24 hours. This was frightening for both us and our new puppy. The vet has monitored him and he has had no more for 24 hours and think it has been a reaction to the wormer.

    Any ideas any one

    We have never had a problem with Panacur, but no of other people that have. Although for a pup that age we have used Panacur 10% which is a liquid and as they get older we then switch to Drontal. We also never do Jabs and worming together - was the puppy wormed by the 'breeder' and if so do you know when they last wormed them. Puppies can also sometimes have reactions to the innoculations. Good luck with your new pup.

    We have Flynn back from the vets now and fingers crossed he is fully recovered. THe vet thinks he had a reaction to the wormer. He has had no more fits since.

    He had his injections at the same time. Wondering if this may have had anything to do with it
