Panacur Equine Guard is for the treatment and control of adult and immature roundworms of the gastro-intestinal tract in horses and other equines.
Panacur is one of the most popular, broad spectrum wormers available. It contains the active ingredient fenbendazole, which treats and controls adult and migrating larval stages of all the main roundworms, as well as being lethal to worm eggs. Panacur can be given as a single dose, or to achieve the best effect against migrating and encysted larval stages of worms, Panacur is given daily for 5 days.
The product is effective for the treatment and control of encysted mucosal 3rd and 4th stage small strongyle larvae and is also effective against encysted inhibited 3rd stage small strongyle larvae in the mucosa.
The product is also effective in controlling other immature and mature roundworms including large redworm (Strongylus edentatus and Strongylus vulgaris) and migrating large redworm, Ascarids (Parascaris equorum), Oxyuris and Strongyloides species and benzimidazole-susceptible adult and immature small strongyles.
Panacur Equine Guard also has an ovicidal effect on nematode eggs.
Panacur Equine Guard may be mixed with your horses food or syringed directly into the horses mouth. One Panacur Equine Guard 225 ml bottle is sufficient for a 5 day treatment of a 600 kg horse to remove tissue and migrating larval stages of large redworm and encysted, inhibited mucosal larvae of small redworm; adult large and small redworms and pinworms.
Dosage and administration
No dietary control is required before or after treatment. For the treatment and control of migrating and tissue larval stages of large strongyles, encysted mucosal 3rd and 4th stage small strongyle larvae and encysted inhibited 3rd stage small strongyle larvae in the mucosa administer 5ml Panacur Equine Guard per 65kg bodyweight daily for 5 days (= 7.5mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight daily for 5 days). Panacur Equine Guard can be easily administered by mixing with grain or concentrate feed. The full daily dosage must be given as one administration. Pregnant mares and foals may also be safely treated with fenbendazole at therapeutic dosage levels. Assess body weight as accurately as possible before calculating the dosage. The use of a ‘weigh band’ is recommended. Recommended dosing programme Treatment of encysted inhibited and encysted mucosal dwelling larvae should 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 can be given at any time of the year. Treatment with Panacur Equine Guard should be given in addition to routine worming during the grazing season.
