Single dose treatments
For the treatment and control of encysted mucosal stages of small strongyles administer 1 syringe per 150kg bodyweight (=30 mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight).
For the treatment and control of migrating larval and tissue stages of large strongyles administer 1 syringe per 75kg bodyweight (=60 mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight).
For the treatment and control of Strongyloides westeri in suckling foals administer 1 syringe per 90kg bodyweight (=50 mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight).
Panacur Equine Paste should be administered orally by squeezing the paste from the syringe 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.
Pregnant mares and young foals can be safely treated with Panacur Equine Paste (fenbendazole) at recommended dosage levels.
Recommended dosing programmes
All horses should be routinely treated with the single dose of Panacur Equine Paste every 6-8 weeks.
Treatment of encysted inhibited and encysted mucosal dwelling larvae should ideally be performed in the autumn (ideally late October/November) and again in the spring (ideally in February). However, for horses that fail to maintain condition or bought-in horses with unknown worming history, the treatment should be given at any time of year.
