Medication Datasheets

Guard 10% Oral Suspension (225mls) » Apple And Cinnamon Flavour

Panacur Equine Guard with Apple and Cinnamon Flavour, 10 % w/v Oral Suspension

Presentation

A 10% w/v suspension of Fenbendazole containing 0.1% apple and cinnamon flavour as a ready to administer oral anthelmintic for horses. 1 ml of this product contains 100 mg active ingredient Fenbendazole.

Uses

For the treatment and control of adult and immature roundworms of the gastro-intestinal tract in horses and other equines. 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 spp. and benzimidazole-susceptible adult and immature small strongyles.

Fenbendazole also has an ovicidal effect on nematode eggs.

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 of the product per 65 kg bodyweight daily for 5 days (= 7.5 mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight daily for 5 days).

The product 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 bodyweight 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 this product should form part of an integrated worming plan. Consult with your supplier for advice regarding wormers to use throughout the year.

Panacur has been extensively used for the treatment of worm infestations in exotic animal species. For further information on suggested dose rates, please contact the veterinary adviser of the Company.

Fenbendazole belongs to the benzimidazole (1‑BZ) class of anthelmintics.

Studies have indicated that inhibited 3rd stage small strongyle larvae represent 50% of the total larval population in the horse.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

General warnings

Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy:

Resistance to fenbendazole has been reported in cyathostomes in horses. Therefore the use of this product should be based on local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.

Intensive use or misuse of anthelmintics can give rise to resistance. To reduce this risk, dosing programmes should be discussed with your veterinary surgeon.

Operator warnings

Direct contact with the skin should be kept to a minimum. Wear suitable protective clothing including impermeable rubber gloves.

Wash hands after use.

Withdrawal periods

Not to be used in horses intended for human consumption.

Treated horses may never be slaughtered for human consumption.

The horse must have been declared as not intended for human consumption under national horse passport legislation.

For animal treatment only. Keep out of the sight and reach of children.

Pharmaceutical precautions

Protect from freezing. Shake container before use.

Mix the medicated feed thoroughly prior to administration, for example by rolling the drum or barrel.

Liquid feed containing Panacur Equine Guard will remain stable for up to 3 months. Keep container in outer carton.

Disposal advice

Dangerous to fish and aquatic life.

Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with product or used container. Dispose of empty packaging and any remaining product in the household refuse.

Q & A

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Panacur Wormer for Horses and Donkeys, including answers from our team.

Donkeys

Gillian

Is the panacure 5 day wormer suitable for donkeys?

  • Veterinary Advisor

Yes, Panacur Guard is one of the few wormers licensed for use in Donkeys. It is important to worm for encysted red worm over winter which this product is effective against.

Confused on Dosage

Nichola Elliott

Following on from my question yesterday, ( I have 3 horses to be wormed. What would be the cheapest and with the least amount left over way to worm them. Pony A weighs 250kg pony B weighs 250kg and horse C weighs 450kg. I'm thinking one bottle of suspension and sachets to make up the difference? Thanks)

sorry should have made it clearer, I'm looking to worm against encysted redworm so understand I need the 5 day treatment? All worm counts clear for last 12 months and used equest promox last winter. What do you recommend? Or can I use equest again. Thanks

  • Veterinary Advisor

In that case you are right- you will need the 5 day course to treat for encysted red worm. Since you treated with Equest last year it would be better to switch to Panacur this year as you intend. The cheapest way (though you can check for yourself) looks like buying two bottles of the oral suspension taking into account that the ponies will need around 100mls each for the course and your horse will need roughly 175mls over the 5 days. If you buy two bottles you should only have 75mls left over which you may find is useful in case of any wastage.

Panacur 5 day guard against Pin worm

Pauline

I have been advised by my vet to give my horse 1 bottle of panacur guard 3 weeks apart for 3 treatments. For pin worm. Is this correct and or safe or a bit over the top. My thoroughbred is 20 years old and I can't seem to get rid of the pinworm.

  • Veterinary Advisor

Pin worm can be very persistent and is more difficult to kill effectively since it lives in the rectum at the end of the gut. Most wormers are absorbed higher up in the gut and do not reach the rectum in high enough concentrations to be effective. Wormers such as Strongid P or Pyratape P containing the active ingredient Pyrantel tend to reach the rectum in higher concentrations than other wormers and so most effectively killing pinworm. I would agree with your vet that a series of treatments are required- I would do at least 2 treatments 2 weeks apart but a third treatment may be required if you are still seeing clinical signs. It is possible for your vet to take a sample from around the anus using sellotape and placing this on a slide to check for pinworm eggs which will give you an indication as to whether you have eradicated the worms. I have also used an Ivermectin and Propylene Glycol wash applied around the anus to kill eggs that have been laid there. Otherwise cleaning around the anus daily is helpful to remove eggs.

Which panacur product ?

Abby

hi I have a 13 hand Welsh cob who has had a worm egg count which it has been found to be high in strongyle eggs . I would like to know which panacur product would be the best to give over a five day program ? I think the wormer that he has had in the past has failed to protect him from this type of parasite .

  • Non-Executive Director

There is some resistance to worming products in the horse population generally. It is also true that many horses are under-dosed so the worm doses given have no chance of being properly effective. This encourages resistance to develop too, with the surviving worms being selected for their ability to survive a worm dose, then they re-populate the horse(s) again from eggs on the pasture.

Panacur might well be effective if given at the correct dose. It does not really matter so much which one you give, they all contain the same active ingredient (= fenbendazole). Panacur is mosts effective if given daily for 5 days, which is the usual way of giving Equine Guard 10% Supension. You need to give 5ml of the product per 65 kg bodyweight daily for 5 days. If you could do a worm egg test a week or so after this is done, you could see if Panacur is fully effective or not in your horse. Whatever product you use, you should try to establish the weight of your horse as accurately as possible and give an adequate dose. It is actually better to give an over-dose than an under-dose with Panacur. Even if you gave a double dose it would be very safe.
