    So I have been given the panacur 18.75 for Poppy and advised to start it on Sunday when she is 7 weeks, each time 1 graduation but is it daily and for how long.

    Also if I have some left, does it keep?

    Is it cheaper to buy it from vets or online?

    Thankx peeps x

    I use Panicur 2.5% liquid for worming my gang and have never had a problem with it, my friend uses the 2.5% paste and swears by it. Both last if kept in a cool dry place.

    Take care

    And that makes it even better value for money for me - can do both, also it treats lungworm.

    I use panacur 10% suspencion for my pups and panacur plus for the adults. I like the suspension as I don't get fingers bitten giving tablets but the greyhounds and setter would need a bottle each the amount they need to have. Zoe the greedy setter will eat everything that is with the exception of worming tablets. Without fail I get my fingers chewed. Even putting them in cheese doesn't work with her:mad:

    With the liquid I measure out how much they need in the measuring cup that comes with the bottle, and put it in with some tinned dog meat it is the only time they get tinned meat so they see it as a treat, I mash it in with the meat and they all eat the lot, so no frothing at the mouth for me or chewed up fingers. My cats get it in the same way. the pups I use a syringe and put directly into their mouths and again I have no worries with this either but with very young pups it is vital you get the amounts right as you can easily overdose with it. i have heard of many breeders who have accidently overdosed and lost the pup within a matter of hours after the dose.

    Take care
