Fenbendazole powder is a broad spectrum, methylcarbamate benzimidazole anthelmintic used to treat a variety of parasitic infections in animals. It works by inhibiting microtubule polymerization, disrupting cellular function in the parasite. As a result, the parasite is unable to produce energy and starves to death. It has also been shown to have antiviral properties. Emerging evidence suggests that fenbendazole may have metabolic-regulating properties as well.

In general, fenbendazole is very well tolerated after oral administration. It is most commonly given to dogs as a daily dose for three consecutive days, or per your veterinarian’s deworming schedule. It is important to have your pet consume all of the medication for maximum efficacy. It is recommended that you mix the granules into your pet’s food for ease of administration and to help prevent gastrointestinal upset.

Although fenbendazole is very effective, it does not treat all types of parasites including some tapeworms spread by fleas. If your animal has loose stools, unexplained weight loss, scratching at the perianal area, diarrhea, anemia or severe bad breath then it is likely that they have parasites and need to be treated with a different type of deworming medication.

Depending on your veterinarian’s recommendation, routine blood work may be needed before beginning or while using this medication. In addition, it is important to communicate with your veterinarian about any medications that your pet is on as they may interact with Panacur. In general, it has been safely used with antibiotics, steroids, anesthetics, wormers, flea treatments and vitamins. fenbendazole powder
