Panacur Small Animal 10% Oral Suspension
Dosage and administration
Routine treatment of adult dogs and cats
4 ml per 1 kg bodyweight as a single oral dose (= 100 mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight).
The dose should be mixed with feed, or administered orally directly after feeding.
Treatment should be repeated when natural re-infestation 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.
Panacur Small Animal 10% Oral Suspension is preferable for the treatment of larger dogs.
Puppies and kittens under six months of age
2ml per kg bodyweight daily for 3 consecutive days given by mouth after feeding to unweaned animals or mixed with food for weaned animals directly before feeding (= 50 mg fenbendazole bodyweight daily for 3 days).
Practical dosage recommendations:
0.5 ml daily for 3 days
1 ml daily for 3 days
2 ml daily for 3 days
3 ml daily for 3 days
4 ml daily for 3 days
For puppies weighing over 2 kg, an extra 2 ml is required daily for each additional kg bodyweight.
Puppies should be treated at 2 weeks of age, 5 weeks of age and again before leaving the breeders' 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 where reinfestation occurs more readily.
Panacur Small Animal 10% Oral Suspension is recommended for larger puppies.
1 ml per 1 kg bodyweight daily from day 40 of pregnancy continuously to 2 days post-whelping (approximately 25 days) (=25 mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight daily).

2 to 4 kg
4 ml daily for approx. 25 days
4 to 8 kg
8 ml daily for approx. 25 days
8 to 16 kg
16 ml daily for approx. 25 days
As treatment of pregnant dogs is 98% effective, puppies from these dogs should themselves be treated with a three day course at 2 and 5 weeks of age.
Panacur Small Animal 10% Oral Suspension is recommended for larger dogs.
Pregnant cats can be safely treated with Panacur but only require a single treatment at the routine adult dose rate. Administer 4 ml per 1 kg bodyweight as a single dose (=100 mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight).
