Pie is only 1kg in weight but apparently the paste is measured in 2.5kg doses.

How does everyone else worm their little furries?!

Does anyone use the liquid and syringe instead?

There are different strengths of panacur. I believe the liquid is cat or dog strength panacur?
Do you mean rabbit paste panacur?

If you are unsure of the dose I would check with the vet.

Is it the rabbit one?

If so, the dose treats buns up to 2.5 kg, so even if your rabbit weighs less he/she still has the same amount as a bun weighing a little more. :)

Don't think a little more panacur will do any harm.

Yip, this is correct. you still give the same graduation dose for up to 2.5kg x

Yes a single dose for all buns up to 2.5kg

I think there is a pretty wide safety margin with panacur (I know someone who managed to give a whole tube minus 1 graduation to a nethie- no idea how though....) but if you would prefer a more accurate dose you could give 0.2ml per kg of the panacur 10% liquid or try lapizole- 0.5ml per 0.5kg :wave:
