- Direct contact with skin should be kept to a minimum. Wear impermeable rubber gloves while administering the product. Wash hands after use.
Dangerous to fish and aquatic life. Do not contaminate ponds, waterways or ditches with the product or used container.
Dispose of any unused product and empty containers in accordance with guidance from your local waste regulation authority.

A broad spectrum anthelmintic for the treatment and control of adult and immature roundworms of the gastro-intestinal tract in horses and other equines. Panacur also has an ovicidal effect on nematode eggs.
Panacur effectively treats and controls the following roundworm infections:
Large strongyles (adults and migrating larval stages of S. vulgaris; adults and tissue larval stages of S. edentatus).
Benzimidazole susceptible adult and immature small strongyles (Cyathostomes) including encysted mucosal 3rd and 4th stage larvae; it is also effective against encysted inhibited 3rd stage larvae in the mucosa.
Adult and immature Oxyuris spp., Strongyloides spp., and Parascaris equorum.
Do not store above 25°C. Protect from direct sunlight.

Dosage and administration
It is recommended that horses and ponies are routinely wormed with a single dose of this product every 6 to 8 weeks. In Late Winter or Spring, mass emergence of encysted mucosal small redworm 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 administered the 5-day Panacur treatment in the Autumn (ideally late October/November) and again in the Spring (ideally in February). All new horses whose worming history is unknown should also be administered the 5-day Panacur treatment.
Pregnant mares and young foals may also be safely treated with Panacur at the recommended dosage levels.
One syringe per 600 kg bodyweight as a single dose.
Administer the paste orally by squeezing onto the back of the horse’s tongue. Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible before calculating the dosage. The use of a ‘weigh band’ is recommended. It is not necessary to withhold feed before or after treatment.
Increased dosing for specific infections:
For the control of encysted small redworm and migrating large redworm larvae, administer one syringe per 600 kg bodyweight daily for 5 consecutive days.
For the control of diarrhoea caused by Strongyloides westeri, in 2-3 week-old suckling foals, administer one syringe per 90 kg bodyweight on a single occasion.
Studies have indicated that inhibited 3rd stage small strongyle larvae represent 50% of the total larval population in the horse.
- Treatment for encysted redworms should be done at least once per year.
- Treatment for tapeworms should be included in the autumn and spring.
- Bot treatments should be timed for the autumn/winter
- Rotate Wormers to prevent the possibility of drug resistance forming for a particular drug group.
- Do not underdose as this can encourage resistance. Use a weight tape.
