Dosage and administration

Routine treatment of adult dogs and cats

Administer 100mg fenbenbazole per 1 kg (2.2 lbs) bodyweight as a single dose.

Practical dosage recommendations:

1 g sachet /dose

Treats 2kg (4.4lb) bodyweight as a single dose (1.1 – 2.2kg)

1.8 g sachet / dose

Treats 4kg (8.8lb) bodyweight as a single dose (2.2 – 4.4kg)

4.5 g sachet /dose

Treats 10kg (22lb) bodyweight as a single dose (5 – 10kg)

For dogs weighing over 10 kg (22 lbs), additional sachets are required according to the additional bodyweight.

Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible and then administer one or a combination of the above sachets, which most closely doses this bodyweight. The dose should be administered by mixing into the feed.

e.g.

For a 9kg dog = 2kg dose (1g sachet) + 4kg dose (1.8g sachet) + 4kg dose (1.8g sachet).

i.e.

one × 1gram sachet + two × 1.8gm sachets (10kg dose)

or

one × 4.5gram sachet (10kg dose)

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.

Weaned puppies and kittens under six months of age

Administer 50mg fenbendazole per 1 kg (2.2 lbs) bodyweight daily for 3 consecutive days.

Practical dosage recommendations:

1 g sachet /dose

Treats 4kg (8.8lb) bodyweight (minimum weight 2.2kg) dosed daily for three consecutive days (2.2 – 4.4kg)

1.8 g sachet / dose

Treats 8kg (17.6lb) bodyweight dosed daily for three consecutive days (4.5– 8kg)

4.5 g sachet /dose

Treats 20kg (44lb) bodyweight dosed daily for three consecutive days (10– 20kg)

For dogs/puppies weighing over 20 kg (44 lbs), additional sachets are required according to the additional bodyweight.

Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible and then administer one or a combination of the above sachets, which most closely doses this bodyweight. The dose should be administered by mixing into the feed.

N.B. Smaller or unweaned puppies and kittens should be treated with Panacur 2.5% or 10% Liquid or Panacur Paste.

e.g.

For a 9kg dog = 4kg dose (1g sachet) + 8kg dose (1.8g sachet) daily for 3 consecutive days.

i.e.

one × 1gram sachet + one × 1.8gm sachets. (12kg) dose daily for 3 days

or

three × 1gram sachet (12kg dose) daily for 3 days

Puppies 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 pups remain in kennels where reinfestation occurs more readily.

Pregnant bitches

Administer 25mg fenbendazole per 1kg (2.2lbs) bodyweight daily from day 40 of pregnancy continuously to 2 days post-whelping (approximately 25 days).

Practical dosage recommendations:

1 g sachet /dose

Treats 8kg (17.6lb) bodyweight dosed daily for approx. 25 days

1.8 g sachet / dose

Treats 16kg (35.2lb) bodyweight dosed daily for approx. 25 days

4.5 g sachet /dose

Treats 40kg (88lb) bodyweight dosed daily for approx. 25 days

For bitches weighing over 40 kg, additional sachets are required according to the additional bodyweight.

As this treatment of pregnant bitches is 98% effective, puppies from these bitches should themselves be treated with a 3 day course at 2 and 5 weeks of age with Panacur 2.5% or 10% Liquid or Panacur Paste. Treat the bitch at the same time at the routine adult dose rate (i.e. 100mg/kg as a single dose).

Pregnant queens

Pregnant queens can be safely treated with Panacur Granules but only require a single treatment at the routine adult dose rate, as there is no pre-natal transfer of worm larvae in the queen. Administer 100mg fenbendazole per 1kg (2.2lb) 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 50mg fenbendazole per 1kg (2.2lbs) bodyweight daily for 3 consecutive days.

For control of lungworm Oslerus (Filaroides) osleri in dogs administer 50mg fenbendazole per 1kg (2.2lbs) bodyweight, daily for 7 consecutive days. A repeated course of treatment may be required in some cases.

Pharmacological particulars

ATC Vet Code QP52AC13

Pharmacotherapeutic group

Pharmacodynamic properties

Fenbendazole is an anthelmintic belonging to the benzimidazole carbamates group. It acts by interfering in the energy metabolism of the nematode. The anthelmintic efficacy is based on inhibition of the polymerisation of tubulin to microtubuli. The anthelmintic affects both adult and immature stages of gastro-intestinal and respiratory nematodes.

Pharmacokinetic particulars

Fenbendazole is only partly absorbed from the intestine and reaches maximum plasma concentration in dogs 6 - 24 hours after oral administration. In cats the mean maximum serum concentration of fenbendazole was reached about 4 hours after treatment. Administration of fenbendazole in food did significantly increase its bioavailability compared to the administration on an empty stomach.

Fenbendazole is metabolised mainly by enzymes of the cytochrome P -450 system in the liver. The major oxidative metabolite is fenbendazole sulfoxide which is further metabolised to fenbendazole sulfone.

Fenbendazole and its metabolites are distributed throughout the body but highest concentrations are found in the liver.

The elimination half-life from plasma is about 15 hours after oral administration.

Fenbendazole and its metabolites are predominantly excreted via the faeces.
