The signs are depression, inappetence, ataxia and drooping lower lip 8 to 24 hours following dosing. Symptoms of moxidectin overdose are the same as those observed in very rare occasions at the recommended dosage. In addition, hypothermia may occur. Symptomatic treatment is not generally necessary and recovery is generally complete within 24 to 72 hours. There is no specific antidote.
