Pregnant mares and young foals can be safely treated with Panacur Equine Paste (fenbendazole) at recommended dosage levels. Recommended dosing programmes All horses should be routinely treated with the single dose of Panacur Equine Paste every 6–8 weeks.

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