Panacur Equine Oral Paste 18.75% w/w is a ready-to-administer, oral paste wormer for horses and other equines.  Each 24 g syringe contains 4.5 g fenbendazole.

Uses

For treatment of horses and other equines infected with immature and adult stages of roundworms found in the gut, including large redworm (Strongylus vulgaris, Strongylus edentatus) and migrating large redworm, benzimidazole-susceptible small redworm and encysted mucosal larvae, Ascarids, Oxyuris and Strongyloides species.  Panacur also kills roundworm eggs.

Dosage and administration

It is recommended that horses and ponies are routinely wormed with a single dose of this product every 6 to 8 weeks. In Late Winter or Spring, mass emergence of encysted mucosal small redworm from the horse’s gut can cause parasitic diarrhoea, mild recurring colic, weight and appetite loss and weakness.

To avoid this, it is recommended that horses are administered the 5-day Panacur treatment in the Autumn (ideally late October/November) and again in the Spring (ideally in February). All new horses whose worming history is unknown should also be administered the 5-day Panacur treatment.

Pregnant mares and young foals may also be safely treated with Panacur at the recommended dosage levels.

Routine treatment.  One syringe per 600 kg bodyweight as a single dose.  Administer the paste orally by squeezing onto the back of the horse’s tongue. Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible before calculating the dosage. The use of a ‘weigh band’ is recommended. It is not necessary to withhold feed before or after treatment.

Increased dosing for specific infections
