What is the correct doseage?
I bought the 4 pack of Tasty Allwormer for Dogs a week ago. Not sure which of the Selected Listings it is as nothing on the packet to distinguish but assume the New Formulation as a recent purchase.
I found the instructions a bit confusing. It says to make sure you weigh your dog for the correct doseage. I have 2 dogs at about 5 kg each.
The packet then says 1 tablet/10kg bodyweight. I took this to mean that 10kg is max for 1 tab and therefore gave our dogs a half tablet each being half the weight. Seems this may not be correct and they shou...ld have got a full tablet. Is the dose I gave them effective or have I wasted my money? Can I safely give them another half tablet now or do they need a full one? I think the packet should be a bit clearer and maybe say "Give 1 tablet up to 10kg bodyweight".

I own a 2 and half-year-old female German Shepherd who weighs 38.4kg, so I gave her 4 tablets, 1 tablet per 10kg of body weight. I looked at all the reviews for this product after giving her the treatment with alarm, but I'm happy to report she has had no adverse reaction of any kind to these tablets. It has been 24 hours now and she is like she always is. Like any medication for your pet, if you are unsure what the correct dosage is for your animal, you should always consult your pet's vet for accurate advice. I bought this medication on sale at Coles supermarket for $12.30

What are we really buying
So I noticed that the total care on the package of the tablet package itself there is a sticker that says Purina totalcare and then I pulled the sticker off it says interceptor spectrum like I don't get it so what are we buying totalcare or interceptor and if it is total care products then why package it. place a whole different name on it then put a sticker with total care on it like what no wonder these dogs are getting really sick

This is POISON! Gave my dog correct dosage, swollen, blood shot eyes, Panting, excessive heart rate, seems to not be able to see well. She is a big strong dog, who has never been ill.

Do not give your dog this product!! Please!!!
Gave my dog the correct dosage, a couple hours later she began to vomit so much and is now really lethargic and clearly feeling very ill. Very concerning as she is only 1 and normally absolutely bouncing off the walls with energy, right now she can barely get off the couch. Please do not feed this to your dogs! I wish I’d read the reviews before purchasing. This product needs to be removed from the shelf!

Upset my dog's stomach
I bought this product 2 times, thinking that the bad effect it had on my dog was just a 1 off and that my dog may have been slightly under weather before commencing this treatment, but second time around I got the same result, it gave my dog diarrhea, on both occasions I gave it to him, it is one of the cheaper brands around for what you get, because sometimes its all I can afford but certainly not at the expense of my beloved dog getting sick....again.

Nearly killed my German shepherd
I bought this for my German shepherd, an hour later he was breathing abnormally fast, pacing, lying down and getting back up, rapid heart rate and lethargic. Took him to vet asap and he needed two shots, luckily he survived, this stuff is poisonous and should be taken off shelves immediately.

Very sick after having this worming brand
I gave the correct dosage with his usual dry food and within 2hrs my Irish setter was lethargic and nauseous. He started vomiting soon after and I am considering taking him to the vet if this continues through the night. He won’t drink water and is not interested in his normal food. This is the first time I have bought this worming brand. I purchased it from my local well known supermarket expecting it to be just like all the other worming brands available. My dogs reaction to this has and very worrying. Now through the night, his heart is raising and fast shallow breathing. 5:30 am. He has drank a little water through the night, very worried and will ring the emergency vet in the morning.
Killed my maltese cross, beautiful Snowy.
Gave my healthy dog 1 Totalcare Allwormer tab- (7kg weight) he got extreme diarrhoea, lethargic, and couldn't walk or hold up head. Rushed to vet. Told hes been poisoned. Nothing they can do. Died 4 hrs later. Told vet the only poison he could have consumed will be the Allwormer tablet and he should give him something to block the poison. Vet said he cant do anything he is dying and charged me $178.00 to administer 3 hydrating vaccines under his skin..which is salt water. Vet (mungrel) new this was useless.
Vets know this stuff is poison and...
10 week Staffordshire x Bullmastif Puppies is in a shocking state after taking this poison!!!
My dear little dog was treated two days ago, he went off his food immediately after taking this poison, went from being a pup full of beans playing with my Rottweiler and I to a bed ridden mess and has lost a third of his body mass. As the other reviews he's hot, has diohrea, accelerated heart rate. He tried to eat today day three and it went straight through him and is now moaning with pain when I rub in the kidney area. These tablets have to be removed from all stores immediately so no other poor pooch has to endure this torture so Purina can make a buck!
Q/ Why hasn't Purina recalled the product if it's taking the innocent lives of our Canine friends?
This product doesn't work
I wormed my dog a month ago. With the correct dosage for his weight 40 kilo. Within 2 weeks he was scooting his butt along the ground like he still had worms. I can only assume they didn't work
Do not use this treatment on your dog.
I bought these yesterday and wormed my dog.... First thing this morning he threw up everywhere, then he had diarrhoea, he is panting heavily and bloodshot in the eyes... I wish I'd have read the other reviews before I used this product... I'm keeping my eye on him and if he doesn't improve soon I'm off to the vet... ps my dog is a Bull Mastiff X so he's a big boy and it's hit him hard :(
My Chihuahua dog died. He was ok with other brands before.
My Chihuahua dog died. He was off food for three days after taking the one tablet. He breathed heavily, weak and then died.
