    My husband gave our tiny silkie the 1/2cc dose instead of the 1/4. Anything I can or should do for her? What outcome can we expect? We were treating for roundworms.

    She should be fine. Valbazen is a rather safe wormer.

    Your Silkie should be fine. From what I've read, Valbazen is usually safe, even in slightly higher doses than recommended.
