For the treatment and control of adult and immature roundworms of the gastro-intestinal tract in horses and other equines. The product is effective for the treatment and control of encysted mucosal 3rd and 4th stage small strongyle larvae and is also effective against encysted inhibited 3rd stage small strongyle larvae in the mucosa. The product is also effective in controlling other immature and mature roundworms including large redworm (Strongylus edentatus and Strongylus vulgaris) and migrating large redworm, Ascarids (Parascaris equorum), Oxyuris and Strongyloides species and benzimidazole-susceptible adult and immature small strongyles. Panacur Equine Guard also has an ovicidal effect on nematode eggs.
Dosage and administration
No dietary control is required before or after treatment. For the treatment and control of migrating and tissue larval stages of large strongyles, encysted mucosal 3rd and 4th stage small strongyle larvae and encysted inhibited 3rd stage small strongyle larvae in the mucosa administer 5ml of the product per 65 kg bodyweight daily for 5 days (= 7.5 mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight daily for 5 days).
This product can be easily administered by mixing with grain or concentrate feed. The full daily dosage must be given as one administration.
Pregnant mares and foals may also be safely treated with fenbendazole at therapeutic dosage levels.
Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible before calculating the dosage. The use of a ‘weigh band’ is recommended.
Treatment of encysted inhibited and encysted mucosal dwelling larvae should be performed in the autumn (ideally late October/November) and again in the Spring (ideally in February). However, for horses that fail to maintain condition or bought-in horses with unknown worming history, the treatment can be given at any time of the year. Treatment with this product should form part of an integrated worming plan. Consult with your supplier for advice regarding wormers to use throughout the year. Studies have indicated that inhibited 3rd stage small strongyle larvae represent 50% of the total larval population in the horse.
