    My vet suggested very finely grating carrot, removing some of the moisture with kitchen roll and using the medicine to mush it back together.

    Using this for metacam drops and panacur paste. Seems to be working ok.

    Default Panacur

    [QUOTE=Jack's-Jane;2208949]One thing to note with Panacur Liquid is that it is not actually licensed for use in Rabbits. Thats not to say its unsafe, it contains the same active ingredient (Fenbendazole) as Panacur Rabbit. But it is only the Panacur Rabbit that is actually licensed for use so I would mention to your Vet the fact that you are using the Liquid.

    I use the Liquid too and the dose of the Panacur 10% Liquid is 0.2ml/kg daily either for 9 days as a 'routine wormer' or for 6 weeks in cases of suspected 'active' EC

    I am using Panacur liquid for my bunnies with pinworm, they take it directly on their morning food with no problems ( I add a bit of fruit or carrot to keep them happy). I am just wondering about the length of time I should be dosing them. Any ideas?

    It's a 28 day course for E.C. and 9 days for pinworms, as in the post you quoted

    https://rabbitwelfare.co.uk/rabbit-health/e-cuniculi/


    It's also recommended to bleach the litter trays with 1% bleach solution for 30 seconds minimum on days 21 and 28 of treatment if for E.C.

    I hope this helps

    Thanks, Someone told my husband it was nine weeks dosing for pinworm, so he bought 3 bottles of the 10%, for 2 bunnies. If it's only 9 days then I'm done already. I just wish I knew how my 2 indoor bunnies got pinworm in the first place. Sigh.

    Most of mine ate the panacur paste OK, except for the two giants of course - the most difficult two to hold and give drugs to, but I'll try it on their cabbage like Sooz said, and hope for the best!

    I've worked it out that it will cost me a quarter of the price of the paste, so worth trying
    We are giving Dillon and Cuthy Panacur at the moment and they are so strong. I have a lovely deep bite on my shoulder from Dillon - and my giants are only babies - wish I had known there was a paste.

    Oh gosh, nine weeks for pinworms

    28 days is arduous enough with our little hooligans

    For 28 days the paste works out quite expensive as you have to buy several tubes. Also, the dosage is very roughly calculated as it's on graduations of the tube.

    I'm told the paste tastes better than the Panacur 10% but I'm not sure about that as I haven't tried it

    Thanks, that was great information. I think I even understood most of it. Detailed as heck.

    They were really good about taking it on their morning food. I added a little fruit or carrot and put the panacur right on the fruit and they ate it up without any problem. they are in separate cages until they bond so making sure they each got the proper dose wasn't a problem.
