Re: Panacure

Hi Stefi,

The dosage for treating encysted larvae in horses is 4.6 grams per lb of body weight for 5 days. That's 4.6 grams of fenbendazole.

So, I don't know the concentration of the product you have, so I cannot advise you. But, if you know the concentration and can determine how much you need to feed to provide 4600 grams of fendbendazole (say for a 1000 lb horse), you can use the product you have. This dosage needs to be given for 5 consecutive days.

All the best,

Dr. Getty
