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 of Panacur Equine Oral Paste contains 4.5 g fenbendazole and 0.2% w/w Apple and Cinnamon flavour.
Panacur Equine Oral Paste is used 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 Panacur Equine Oral Paste 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 Equine Oral Paste 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 of Panacur Equine Oral Paste 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 For the control of encysted small redworm and migrating large redworm larvae administer one syringe per 600 kg bodyweight daily for 5 consecutive days. For the control of diarrhoea caused by Strongyloides westeri in 2-3 week-old suckling foals administer one syringe per 90 kg bodyweight on a single occasion. Studies have indicated that inhibited 3rd stage small strongyle larvae represent 50% of the total larval population in the horse. Panacur has been used extensively for the treatment of worm infestations in exotic animal species.

Contra-indications warnings etc
General warnings 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.
