How do I use Panacur granules?

 

For oral administration only.

Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible prior to determining the correct dosage.

Adult Dogs & Cats:

For the routine treatment of adult dogs and cats administer 100mg fenbendazole per 1kg (2.2lb) bodyweight as a single dose.

Treatment should be repeated when natural re-infection 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.

Practical dosage recommendations:

  • 1 g sachet treats 2kg (4.4lb) bodyweight as a single dose (1.1 – 2.2kg)
  • 1.8 g sachet treats 4kg (8.8lb) bodyweight as a single dose (2.2 – 4.4kg)
  • 4.5 g sachet treats 10kg (22lb) bodyweight as a single dose (5 – 10kg)

For dogs weighing over 10kg (22lb), additional sachets are required according to the additional bodyweight.

Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible and then administer one or a combination of the above sachets, which most closely doses this bodyweight. The dose should be administered by mixing into the feed.

e.g.For a 9kg dog = 2kg dose (1g sachet) + 4kg dose (1.8g sachet) + 4kg dose (1.8g sachet).

i.e. one x 1gram sachet + two x 1.8gm sachets. (10kg dose)
or, one x 4.5gram sachet (10kg dose)

For the treatment of clinical worm infestations in adult dogs and cats or Giardia spp. infections in dogs, administer 50mg fenbendazole per 1kg (2.2lb) bodyweight daily for 3 consecutive days.

For the control of lungworm Oslerus (Filaroides) osleriin dogs administer 50mg fenbendazole per 1kg (2.2lb) bodyweight, daily for 7 consecutive days.
A repeat course of treatment may be required in some cases.

For the control of lungworm Aelurostrongylus abstrusus in cats administer 50mg fenbendazole per 1kg (2.2lb) bodyweight daily for 3 consecutive days.

Puppies & Kittens:

For treatment of weaned puppies and kittens under 6 months of age administer 50mg fenbendazole per 1kg (2.2lb) bodyweight daily for 3 consecutive days.

Puppies 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 where re-infestation occurs more readily.

Practical dosage recommendations:

  • 1 g sachet treats 4kg (8.8lb) bodyweight (minimum weight 2.2kg) dosed daily for three consecutive days (2.2 – 4.4kg)
  • 1.8 g sachet treats 8kg (17.6lb) bodyweight dosed daily for three consecutive days (4.5– 8kg)
  • 4.5 g sachet treats 20kg (44lb) bodyweight dosed daily for three consecutive days (10– 20kg)

For dogs/puppies weighing over 20kg (44lb), additional sachets are required according to the additional bodyweight.

Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible and then administer one or a combination of the above sachets, which most closely doses this bodyweight. The dose should be administered by mixing into the feed.

e.g.For a 9kg puppy = 4kg dose (1gm sachet) + 8kg dose (1.8gm sachet) daily for 3 consecutive days.

i.e. one x 1 gram sachet + one x 1.8 gram sachet (12kg dose) daily for 3 days
or, three x 1 gram sachet (12kg dose) daily for 3 days.

Pregnant dogs

Administer 25mg fenbendazole per 1kg (2.2lb) bodyweight daily from day 40 of pregnancy continuously to 2 days post-whelping (approximately 25 days).

Practical dosage recommendations:

  • 1 g sachet treats 8kg (17.6lb) bodyweight daily.
  • 1.8 g sachet treats 16kg (35.2lb) bodyweight daily.
  • 4.5 g sachet treats 40kg (88lb) bodyweight daily.

For bitches weighing over 40kg, additional sachets are required according to the additional bodyweight.

As teratogenic effects in dogs and cats cannot be completely ruled out in very rare cases, the treatment in the first two trimesters of pregnancy should be based on the benefit-risk evaluation by the responsible veterinarian.
