However, for horses who fail to maintain condition or bought-in horses with unknown worming history, the treatment can be given at any time of the year.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc
Do not usen Panacur Liquid in horses and other equines intended for human consumption.
Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy:
- Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time.
- Underdosing, which may be due to underestimation of body weight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of the dosing device (if any).
Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.
Resistance to benzimidazoles (which include fenbendazole) has been reported in Teladorsagia, Haemonchus, Cooperia and Trichostrongylus species in small ruminants in a number of countries, including the EU. Therefore the use of this product should be based on local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.
Resistance to fenbendazole has been reported in cyathostomes in horses. Therefore the use of this product should be based on local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.
When incorporating this product into liquid feed, after thoroughly shaking the suspension, measure the required volume of the suspension and add it to approximately 10% of the liquid feed. Thoroughly mix this material and then add the remaining liquid feed and once again mix to produce a homogenous dispersion. Mix the medicated feed thoroughly prior to administration for example by rolling the drum or barrel.
Assess bodyweight as accurately as possible before calculating the dosage. Intensive use or misuse of anthelmintic can give rise to resistance. To reduce this risk, dosing programmes should be discussed with your veterinary surgeon.
Fenbendazole belongs to the benzimidazole (1â€‘BZ) class of anthelmintics.
