Panacur C is FDA approved for use only in puppies 6 weeks of age or older and
adult dogs, including pregnant bitches. The usual dose for dogs, based on weight
using the chart below, is given once a day for 3 consecutive days. The
medication can be mixed with a small amount of the animalís usual food. Dry dog
food may require slight moistening to allow for proper mixing. Medicated food
must be fully consumed to be effective.

||1 gram + 2 gram

*packet size is the daily dose. The dog must be treated with this dose for 3
days in a row.
You should weigh your dog to make sure you are using the right size and number of packets. If your dog's weight is in-between the suggested dosing sizes, it is safe to use the next higher size. For example, 1 15-pound dog should be treated with the 2-gram packet.
Give Panacur® C to your dog by mixing the daily dose with a small amount of the usual food. Make sure your dog eats all of the medicated food. You may need to moisten dry dog food to aid mixing.
Repeat the daily dose for three days in a row.
Diagnosis of Parasites:
Specific diagnoses require laboratory testing. Consult your veterinarian for help in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism. Dogs can become infected with several different kinds of tapeworms. Panacur® C only kills Taenia species of tapeworms. If you continue to see tapeworm segments in your dog's stool after treatment with Panacur® C, consult your veterinarian.
Recommended Deworming Schedule:
Deworming schedules may vary depending on the climate where you live and the activity of your dog. The following schedule should be used as general guidance. Newly weaned pups (6 to 8 weeks of age) should be dewormed at 6, 8, 10 and 12 weeks of age. Treat the dam at the same time as the puppies. Dogs over six months of age should be dewormed at least twice each year. Each deworming requires 3 daily treatments.
This medication should not be used in animals
allergic to it. Do not deworm a dog or puppy that is sick. Consult your
Veterinarian for the diagnosis of the illness. Because humans can contract
roundworm, hookworm and tapeworm from pets, it is important to maintain good
personal hygiene. It is also important to eliminate fleas on the pet and in the
household and to not feed the pet rodents or uncooked meat or fish. To prevent
reinfection, daily cleanup of stools is recommended.
