Panacur Oral Suspension For Cats and Dogs
Panacur Oral Suspension is a ready to administer oral anthelmintic for both dogs and cats including unweaned puppies and kittens from two weeks of age. It is highly efficacious against roundworms, hookworms and tapeworms such as toxocara, toxascaris, anyclostma, trichuris, uncinaria, taenia species and giardia infections in dogs, and lungworm in both cats and dogs. It is equally safe to dispense to pregnant bitches at 25mg/lbs daily for the last 25 days of pregnancy.
How It Works?
Panacur Oral Suspension contains Fenbendazole as an active ingredient. 1ml of Panacur 10% Oral Suspension contains 100mg of fenbendazole. Wormers containing fenbendazole has a very gentle action "starving" the worms by preventing them absorbing glucose, so there is no effect on the host animal. Dead worms are then digested. The safety margin of fenbendazole means that it is almost impossible to give a dose large enough to harm puppies or kittens.
Panacur Oral Suspension can be administered by mixing it with feed, or orally directly after feeding. It is supplied in 100ml bottles of oral suspension. 1ml per 2lbs body-weight as a single oral dose (= 100 mg fenbendazole/lbs body-weight). Routine treatment of adult animals with minimal exposure to infection is advisable 2 to 4 times per year. More frequent treatment at 6 to 8 weekly intervals is advisable for dogs in kennels. Treatment should be repeated when natural re-infestation with parasitic worms occurs.
Practical dosage recommendations:
4 to 8lbs - 4 ml
8 to 17lbs - 8 ml
17 to 35lbs - 16 ml
35 to 52lbs - 24 ml
52 to 70lbs - 32 ml
70 to 141lbs - 64 ml
For dogs weighing over 141lbs, an extra 1ml is required for each additional 2lbs body-weight.
