Description

Panacur is a widely used and very popular broad spectrum wormer. Using the highly active Fenbendazole, Panacur treats and controls migrating larval and adult stages of all main species of Roundworms, in addition to destroying worm eggs. Given as a single dose or over five days for best results against migrating and encysted larvae, Panacur offers reliable results and is available in an unflavoured paste form. POM-VPS.

The presence of worms can be checked in your horse using a Worm Testing Kit.

Panacur Equine Guard 10% w/v Oral Suspension

Presentation

A 10% w/v suspension of Fenbendazole as a ready to administer oral anthelmintic for horses. 1 ml Panacur Equine Guard 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 species and benzimidazole-susceptible adult and immature small strongyles.

Panacur Equine Guard 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).

This 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:

-Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time.

-Underdosing, which may be due to underestimation of body weight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of the dosing device (if any).

Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.

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 reach and sight 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 the product will remain stable for up to 3 months. Keep container in outer carton.

Disposal advice

Increased dosing for specific infections

For the control of migrating large redworm and encysted mucosal small redworm larvae, administer one sachet per 300 kg bodyweight daily for 5 consecutive days. It is not necessary to withhold feed before or after treatment. Assess bodyweight accurately before calculating the dosage. The use of a weigh band is recommended.

Panacur Equine Granules are odourless and tasteless and should be mixed with your horse’s concentrate or grain feed with the full daily dosage given in one feed.

Dosing programmes It is recommended that horses and ponies are routinely wormed up to every six to eight weeks during the grazing season, depending on their individual requirements. Seek veterinary advice for appropriate monitoring, stock management and dosing programmes to allow optimum endoparasite control. In late winter or spring, mass emergence of mucosal small redworm larvae from the horse’s gut can cause parasitic diarrhoea, mild recurring colic, weight and appetite loss and weakness. To avoid this, it is recommended that horses are treated with the 5 day Panacur treatment between the end of October and December. All new horses whose worming history is unknown should also be treated with the 5 day Panacur dose. Pregnant mares and foals may also be safely treated with Panacur at recommended dosage levels.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible before calculating the dosage.

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:

•Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time.

Ask Your Own Question

Which panacur product ?

22nd Apr 2016
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 .

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

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.
