Panacur Paste 10% Indications

For the treatment of infections caused by the following internal parasites in horses. Large strongyles (adults): Strongylus vulgaris, S. equinus, S. edentatus and Triodontophorus spp. Small strongyles (luminal adults and fourth stage larvae): Cyathostomum spp., Cylicocyclus spp. and Cylicostephanus spp. Ascarids (adults): Parascaris equorum. Pinworms (adults): Oxyuris equi. This product is also indicated for the treatment of equine larval cyathostomosis induced by the encysted early third stage (hypobiotic EL3), late third stage (LL3) and fourth stage (L4) larvae of cyathostomes (small strongyles).

See cautionary statements below.

CAUTIONS: 1) Certain species of small strongyles have become resistant to most anthelmintics belonging to the benzimidazole family of compounds, including fenbendazole. 2) In suspected cases of larval cyathosomosis, the prognosis is usually guarded since the underlying pathology can be severe without the animals showing marked clinical signs. 3) Consult your veterinarian regarding the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism in horses.

Dosage and Administration

Administer orally to horses at the following dosage:

25 g Tube: 1) The routine recommended dosage is 5 mg of fenbendazole per kg of body weight. This is equivalent to one syringe per 500 kg (1100 lb) of body weight. 2) In cases of larval cyathostomosis, administer this product at a daily dosage of 10 mg of fenbendazole per kg of body weight during five consecutive days. This is equivalent to two syringes per 500 kg (1100 lb) of body weight per day, administered during five consecutive days. 3) Foals and young horses under 18 months of age require a dose of 10 mg of fenbendazole per kg body weight for the treatment of ascarid infections. At this dosage, the contents of one syringe will treat a 250 kg (550 lb) foal.

290 g Tube: 1) The routine recommended dosage is 5 mg of fenbendazole per kg of body weight. This is equivalent to 5 g of paste per 100 kg (220 lb) of body weight. 2) In cases of larval cyathostomosis, administer this product at a daily dosage of 10 mg of fenbendazole per kg of body weight during five consecutive days. This is equivalent to 5 g of paste per 50 kg (110 lb) of body weight, administered during five consecutive days. 3) Foals and young horses under 18 months of age require a dose of 10 mg of fenbendazole per kg body weight for the treatment of ascarid infections.
