I have phoned the supplier and searched online, and I think they'll be fine -
I just bought panacur paste 18.75 % for the first time - I didn't notice the locking device til after using it :( the paste shot out surprisingly quickly and I have at best double-dosed; at worst the smallest kitten (about 1kg) could have had 5 x the recommended dose.
It looks like the new tube has now been pushed in to the 2nd full graduation (on the top) - after dosing two kittens, but it's hard to tell how much has been used. Can anyone describe to me how much half a graduation looks like?
Also got to admit I am guessing their weight at 1 kg... how much should a 10 week kitten weigh? cos apparently if the kitten weighs 1.1 -2kg the dose doubles anyway. I think I was probably panicking about nothing when I started writing this post - but if anyone would like to scold me for not having weighed them or preferably put my mind at rest regarding the Evilness of Panacur paste, that'd be grand :001_smile:

Thanks ppl :) looking at it I think the little girl was at worst double dosed... and I think that the boy probably got the right amount. guess I'll find out tomorrow how much I was out by, when I give them the CORRECT dose using the locking mechanism (which I think wasn't very well explained, and should be at the closed end to start with...:cursing:)
The supplier said that it should be fine as there is a very high safety margin on the product -
The only annoying thing is that now the mittens are asleep, so we'll probably worry about them until they wake up and have their "crazy time"...

aha ;) should shop at my work!
My boss is very good at explaining it and always puts the locking mechanism at the right part ready for the first dose!
