Panacur Worming Paste has been developed for the treatment and control of roundworms and tapeworms in cats and kittens. It is also used to control lungworms in cats.

It is used to treat adult dogs and cats infected with gastrointestinal nematodes and cestodes including:
It is also quite effective in treating kittens infected with gastrointestinal nematodes. It even treats cats infected with lungworm Aelurostrongylus abstrusus.
Panacur - How it works?
Fenbendazole, an anthelmintic is the active ingredient present in this deworming treatment. It effectively manages acute and chronic stages of parasitic infections in cats. It obstructs the energy metabolism of the worms which instantly cures the gastrointestinal along with respiratory tract infections. It is highly effective on felines and kittens.
This product needs to be given orally by pressing the paste from the syringe on the back of the tongue after feeding.
For Adult Dogs and Cats:
Orally administer 2 syringe gradations per 2.20 lbs. bodyweight as a single dose which equals to 100 mg Fenbendazole/kg bodyweight.
Each 5 g syringe is sufficient to dose up to 19.84 lbs. as a single dose.
Practical dosage recommendations:
0 to 2.2 lbs. 2 syringe graduations
2.3 to 4.4 lbs. 4 syringe graduations
4.5 to 6.6 lbs. 6 syringe graduations
6.7 to 8.8 lbs. 8 syringe graduations
8.9 to 11.0 lbs. 10 syringe graduations
11.1 to 13.2 lbs. 12 syringe graduations
13.3 to 15.4 lbs. 14 syringe graduations
15.5 to 17.6 lbs. 16 syringe graduations
17.6 to 19.8 lbs. 18 syringe graduations
The treatment needs to be repeated when natural reinfection with parasitic worms occurs. Routine treatment of adult animals with minimal exposure to infection is advisable 2 to 4 times a year. More frequent treatment at 6 to 8 weekly intervals is advisable for dogs in kennels and cats in catteries or on breeder's premises.
For Puppies and Kittens Under 6 Months of Age
Orally administer 1 syringe graduation per 2.20 lbs. bodyweight on a daily basis for 3 consecutive days. That means 50 mg Fenbendazole/kg bodyweight daily for 3 consecutive days. Each 5 gram syringe is sufficient to dose up to 13.23 lbs. for 3 consecutive days.
Practical dosage recommendations:
Up to 2.2 lbs. 1 syringe graduation daily for 3 days
2.3 to 4.4 lbs. 2 syringe graduations daily for 3 days
4.5 to 6.6 lbs. 3 syringe graduations daily for 3 days
6.7 to 8.8 lbs. 4 syringe graduations daily for 3 days
8.9 to 11.0 lbs. 5 syringe graduations daily for 3 days
11.1 to 13.2 lbs. 6 syringe graduations daily for 3 days
Puppies need to be treated at 2 weeks of age, 5 weeks of age and again before leaving the breeder's premises. Treatment may also be required at 8 and 12 weeks of age. Thereafter, frequency of the treatment can be reduced unless the pups remain in the kennels and kitties in catteries or on breeder's premises where re-infection occurs more readily.

My kitty is little fussy and giving her anything is like a great war for me. When suffering from worm infection, it was difficult for me to treat her when I was using other dewormers but with panacur oral paste it has been easy for me to keep her free from intestinal worm infection.
This is my choice of wormer for my four kitties, effective and safe for cats.
Need not have to buy any other product for controlling worms if your kittens are quite fussy about taking tablets. This paste works well and I find it easy to administer as it comes in a syringe. Just you need to depress under the tongue of your kitty. It works perfectly.
