Should be administered orally by squeezing the paste from the syringe onto the back of the tongue after feeding.

Treatment should be repeated when natural re-infection 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 and cats in catteries or a breeders premises.

Puppies and kittens should be treated at 2 weeks of age, 5 weeks of age and again before leaving the breeder’s premises. Treatment may also be required at 8 and 12 weeks of age. Thereafter, frequency of treatment can be reduced unless the puppies and kittens remain in kennels or kittens remain in catteries /breeders premises where reinfection occurs more readily.
Owing to the reduced dose rate for treatment of pregnant dogs (25mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight daily) which cannot accurately be attained when using the syringe, it is recommended that alternative formulations of fenbendazole be used.

Orally administer 2 syringe graduations per 1kg bodyweight as a single dose (= 100mg fenbendazole/kg bodyweight). Each syringe is sufficient to dose up to 9kg bodyweight as a single dose.
