Panacur paste is a broad spectrum anthelmintic for the treatment of domestic dogs and cats infected with immature and mature stages of nematodes of the gastro-intestinal and respiratory tracts. Panacur also has an ovicidal effect on nematode eggs.   Adult dogs and cats: Panacur paste is used for the treatment of adult dogs and cats infected with gastro-intestinal nematodes and cestodes: Ascarid spp. (Toxocara canis Toxocara cati and Toxascaris leonina) Ancylostoma spp. Trichuris spp. Uncinaria spp. Taenia spp.   Puppies and kittens: Panacur paste is used for the treatment of puppies and kittens infected with gastro-intestinal nematodes and puppies infected with protozoa (Giardia spp.). Also for the treatment of dogs infected with lungworm Oslerus (Filaroides) osleri or protozoa of Giardia spp. and cats infected with lungworm Aelurostrongylus abstrusus.

Dosage and administration
Panacur paste should be administered orally by squeezing the paste from the syringe onto the back of the tongue after feeding.   Adult Cats and Dogs Orally administer 2 syringe graduations per 1 kg bodyweight as a single dose (= 100 mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight). Each 5 g syringe is sufficient to dose up to 9 kg bodyweight as a single dose.   Treatment should be repeated when natural reinfection with parasitic worms occurs. 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 and cats in catteries or on breeders` premises. Puppies and kittens under 6 months of age Orally administer 1 syringe graduation per 1 kg bodyweight daily for 3 consecutive days (= 50 mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight daily for 3 consecutive days). Each 5 g syringe is sufficient to dose up to 6 kg bodyweight for 3 consecutive days.   Puppies and kittens should be treated at 2 weeks of age 5 weeks of age and again before leaving the breeder`s premises. Treatment may also be required at 8 and 12 weeks of age. Thereafter frequency of treatment can be reduced unless the pups remain in kennels or cats in catteries or on breeders` premises where reinfection occurs more readily. Pregnant dogs Due to the recommended dosing regime it is recommended that alternative formulations of fenbendazole are more appropriate.   Pregnant cats Pregnant cats can be safely treated with Panacur Paste but only require a single treatment at the routine adult dose rate. Orally administer 2 syringe graduations per 1 kg bodyweight as a single dose (= 100 mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight). Each 5 g syringe is sufficient to dose up to 9 kg bodyweight as a single dose.
