What is Panacur C?

For: Dogs (6 weeks of age or older)
Benefits: Can be added to food FDA-approved for use in dogs Side effects are rare How does Panacur C work? Fenbendazole is a member of the benzimidazole group of anti-parasite medications which makes it a relatively broad-spectrum medication. It binds to parasitic proteins which leads to damaging the integrity and the transport function of cells in parasites.
Cautions: Side effects are rare, but may include loose stools. Since humans can contract roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms from pets, it’s important to maintain good personal hygiene. It’s also important to eliminate fleas and to not feed your pet uncooked meat or fish. To prevent re-infection, clean up stools on a daily basis.
