Panacur 10% Oral Suspension is suitable for cats and dogs including pregnant bitches and queens, as well as kittens and puppies.
Routine treatment of adult dogs and cats:
1ml per 1kg bodyweight as a single oral dose. The dose should be mixed with feed, or administered orally directly after feeding. Practical dosage recommendations:
- 2 to 4kg: 4ml
- 4 to 8kg: 8ml
- 8 to 16kg: 16ml
- 16 to 24kg: 24ml
- 24 to 32kg: 32ml
- 32 to 64kg: 64ml
For dogs weighing over 64kg an extra 1ml is required for each additional 1kg bodyweight.
Treatment should be repeated when natural re-infestation with parasitic worms occurs. Routine treatment of adult animals with minimal exposure to infection is advisable 2 to 4 times per year. More frequent treatment at 6 to 8 weekly intervals is advisable for dogs in kennels.
Puppies and kittens:
0.5ml per kg bodyweight daily for 3 consecutive days given by mouth after feeding to unweaned animals or mixed with food for weaned animals. Practical dose recommendations:
- Up to 1kg: 0.5ml daily for 3 days
- 1 to 2kg: 1ml for 3 days
- 2 to 4kg: 2ml daily for 3 days
- 4 to 6kg: 3ml daily for 3 days
- 6 to 8kg: 4ml daily for 3 days
- 8 to 10kg: 5ml daily for 3 days
Puppies should be treated at 2 weeks of age, 5 weeks of age and again before leaving the breeders premises. Treatment may also be required at 8 and 12 weeks of age. Thereafter, frequency of treatment can be reduced unless the pups remain in kennels where reinfestation occurs more readily.
1ml per 4kg bodyweight daily from day 40 of pregnancy continuously to 2 days post-whelping (approximately 25 days). Practical dosage recommendations:
- 4kg: 1ml daily for approx. 25 days
- 8kg: 2ml daily for approx. 25 days
- 12kg: 3ml daily for approx. 25 days
- 20kg: 5ml daily for approx. 25 days
- 40kg: 10ml daily for approx. 25 days
As treatment of pregnant dogs is 98% effective, puppies from these dogs should themselves be treated with a three day course at 2 and 5 weeks of age.
Pregnant cats can be safely treated with this product but only require a single treatment at the routine adult dose rate. Administer 1ml per 1kg bodyweight as a single dose.
Increased dosing for specific infections:
For the treatment of clinical worm infestations in adult dogs and cats or Giardia spp. infections in dogs, administer 1ml per 2kg bodyweight daily for 3 consecutive days.
For the control of lungworm Oslerus (Filaroides) osleri in dogs administer 1ml per 2kg bodyweight daily for 7 consecutive days. A repeat course of treatment may be required in some cases.
For the control of lungworm Aelurostrongylus abstrusus in cats administer 1ml per 2kg bodyweight daily for 3 consecutive days.
