Panacur Oral Paste  for Dogs and Cats 18.75 % Fenbedazole 4.8 gr syringe


One of the most effective and highly recommended cat and dog wormers are the range of Panacur wormers. Veterinarians across the UK have advised pet owners to use these products regularly every three months since it is often difficult to recognize the symptoms of intestinal worms. In the UK, there are at least eight different types of intestinal worms that can infect felines and roughly a dozen that infect canines.

A single syringe contains enough Panacur to treat 9kg bodyweight of adult cat or dog. If it is used to treat kittens or puppies, then a smaller dose should be given every day for 3 days, and a single syringe will fully treat kittens or puppies to a total bodyweight of 6kg. (eg 6 kittens weighing 1kg each). For full dosing instructions, see the datasheet below.

As such, de-worming your pet using Panacur paste or tablets to promote better animal health is a wise decision. If you keep horses, there is also Panacur Equine Paste. Dog wormers such as the aforementioned de-wormer paste are called “anthelmintic” which describes any product/substance that attacks and destroys parasitic worms.

Another factor to consider whenever you are using Panacur Paste is that the product can also be administered to pregnant cats or dogs and will not harm a foetus. This product comes packaged in plastic syringes containing five grammes of the product. It needs to be dispensed as far back in your cat or dog’s mouth as possible. Once your pet has finished its daily feeding, simply squeeze the paste from the dispensing syringe to the back of their tongues.

You also need to administer another treatment of Panacur paste when natural parasitic re-infection occurs. We also advise pet owners to re-administer the treatment at intervals of six to eight weeks if you have recently acquired a cat or dog from an animal shelter or kennel. Animals from these establishments could easily be exposed to these intestinal parasites whilst being cared for there.
