Abstract:

A German Shepherd cross male dog one year old weighing 12 kg was presented to Teaching Veterinary clinics complex, International Institute of Veterinary Education and Research (IIVER), Rohtak Haryana for treatment. The dog was treated for tick infestation by owner. History revealed that about 1.5 ml of ivermectin (I-mac) was injected intramuscularly. Abnormal clinical signs were observed by owner 12 hours after injection. Clinical examination revealed hypothermia (98.5ËšF), ataxia, partial blindness, dilated pupil, negative papillary light reflex, weakness, incoordination and behavioural changes. Therapeutic management was done with the administration of atropine sulphate @ 0.02-0.04 mg/kg BW IV stat, neostigmine @ 0.05mg/kg BW SC repeated 6 hourly and dexamethasone @ 0.25-0.5mg/kg BW IM BID and optineuron @ 1 ml total dose with infusion of 200 ml dextrose (5%) IV. The dog recovered uneventfully after treatment.
