Panacur Equine Granules is a ready to administer oral wormer for horses and other equines.
Each Panacur sachet contains 2.2 g Fenbendazole per 10.2 g granules.
Panacur horse granules are a broad spectrum anthelmintic for the treatment and control of adult and immature roundworms of the gastro-intestinal tract in horses and other equines. Panacur effectively treats and controls the following roundworm infections: - Large strongyles (adults and migrating larval stages of Strongylus vulgaris; adults and tissue larval stages of S. edentatus). - Adult and immature small strongyles (Cyathostomes) (benzimidazole susceptible) including encysted mucosal 3rd and 4th stage larvae; it is also effective against inhibited 3rd stage larvae (encysted) in the mucosa. - Adult and immature Oxyuris spp. Strongyloides spp. and Parascaris equorum. Panacur also has an ovicidal effect on nematode eggs.
Dosage and administration
Routine treatment Administer panacur granules orally. 5 g Panacur Equine Granules per 150 kg bodyweight. (= 7.5 mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight) Increased dosing for specific infections Five day course: For the treatment and control of migrating larval and tissue stages of large strongyles encysted mucosal 3rd and 4th stage larvae and inhibited 3rd stage larvae (encysted) in the mucosa administer 5g Panacur Equine Granules per 150kg bodyweight daily for 5 days. (=7.5mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight daily for 5 days) Single dose treatments: For the treatment and control of encysted mucosal stages of small strongyles administer 20g Panacur Equine Granules per 150kg bodyweight. (=30mg fenbendazole /kg bodyweight) For the treatment and control of migrating stages of large strongyles administer 40g Panacur Equine Granules per 150 kg bodyweight. (=60mg fenbendazole /kg bodyweight) Diarrhoea caused by Strongyloides westeri in two to three week old suckling foals should be treated with Panacur 10% suspension at a dose rate of 25ml per 50kg bodyweight. (=50mg fenbendazole /kg bodyweight) Panacur Equine Granules should be sprinkled onto concentrate or grain feed and the full dosage given as one administration. To ensure administration of a correct dose body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked. Recommended dosing programme All horses should be routinely wormed with the single dose of Panacur Equine Granules every 6-8 weeks. Treatment of encysted mucosal-dwelling larvae should ideally be done in the autumn (late October/November) and again in the Spring. 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.
Contra-indications warnings etc
Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible before calculating the dosage. Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy: • Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class over an extended period of time. • Underdosing which may be due to underestimation of body weight misadministration of the product or lack of calibration of the dosing device (if any). Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used. Resistance to fenbendazole has been reported in cyathostomes in horses. Therefore the use of this product should be based on local (regional farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics. Operator warnings Direct contact with the skin should be kept to a minimum. Avoid inhalation of granule dust. Wash hands after use. Withdrawal periods Not to be used in horses intended for human consumption. Treated horses may never be slaughtered for human consumption.
