Description

Panacur Rabbit Paste has been produced to control parasites such as intestinal worms as well as the potentially serious pathogen E.cuniculi in domestic rabbits. Panacur Rabbit has a pleasant flavour for rabbits and can easily be syringed slowly into the side of the mouth. Each syringe contains enough paste for one dose per day for 9 days (suitable for routine treatment of intestinal worms).

E.cuniculi is a microscopic parasite which infects many rabbits without causing any signs of illness or disease at all, remaining dormant for years. However in some individuals, especially after a stressful event, it can suddenly and catastrophically cause serious disease. This often affects the rabbits balance and posture, producing a marked head-tilt and a tendency to fall to one side, or hind-limb paralysis. For rabbits showing clinical signs of E.cuniculi, a 28 day course of Panacur ir recommended. See below for dosage information.

A 9 day course of treatment for intestinal worms when a new rabbit is purchased is recommended. This can be repeated 2-4 times per year where rabbits are kept in groups.

Each syringe contains 5 g of18.75% fenbendazole paste. For oral anthelmintic treatment of domestic rabbits use: 1 syringe graduation per 2.5 kg bodyweight (20 mg/kg fenbendazole) daily for 9 consecutive days. Consult your vet for further information or if you are concerned about protozoal infection (E.cuniculi).

Further information

Encephalitozoon cuniculi is an intracellular protozoan parasite which can cause a range of clinical signs including hind limb paresis, head tilt, collapse, urinary incontinence, cataract formation and lens-induced uveitis and death. Transmission is primarily via ingestion of spores shed in the urine contaminating food and/or water.

A 2006 UK study showed a seroprevalence of 52% in domestic rabbits indicating the widespread nature of the parasite.

Panacur Rabbit is an aid in the control of E. cuniculi and it is recommended that additional preventative measures are taken such as ensuring that food and water are placed appropriately to prevent urine contamination.

E. cuniculi has zoonotic potential and infection has been reported in immunosuppressed people.

55 Works 100%
Verified Purchase

By Markus Karner on 5 June 2017

After I found my little wild rabbit at the side of the road after having been hit by a car and after she's been through emergency surgery I discovered that the poor thing also was infested with intestinal worms. Tried several other products before but none really worked. Panacur for me is the only wormer that really works and after just two days of initial treatment the worms had gone. I must however sneak the paste in between her salad, carrots, parsley etc as she will not take it from the dispenser but that does not seem to weaken the effectivness of the product.
Mr. Humphrey, her new companion as she can not be released back into the wild again due to her sustained injuries also accepts Panacur without any difficulties.
For me a top product that I can thoroughly recommend!

55 Does what it's suppose to
Verified Purchase

By Jessica Hobbins on 4 September 2016

My rabbit was losing weight and vet recommended I worked him. He's now on day 21 and he's back to his healthy weight and full of energy again! I also used it on a rescue rabbit who had parasites in his ear and it did the job!

I put a blob of it between two mint leaves and they wolf it down.

Excellent product. I will always keep stocked up!

I have 2 rabbits how many syringes will I need to effectively treat them both?

Thanks

This depends on the weight of your rabbits. One syringe will provide a full 9 day course for one rabbit of up to 5kg bodyweight. If your rabbits are smaller and weigh 2.5kg or less, then one syringe will do a nine-day course for both of them. Most rabbits are in the range 2.5kg to 5kg and so need one syringe each, but some can be heavier than this and need proportionately more. You do need to weigh your rabbits first, even if it just an approximate weight.

How many?

Sam

My Guinea Pig weighs 475g how many of these syringes do I need for a preventative regime?

  • Non-Executive Director

Most guinea pigs do not suffer from intestinal parasites in any significant way at all.There is no need or point in giving medication prophylactically like this. As long as you concentrate on providing good quality food including fresh greens/grass and a clean environment, your guinea pig should do perfectly well.
