Re: RC: Re: Panacur Dosage X 2

Hi Karen

Thanks for your post but I don't think that encysted larvae are the same as
migrating larvae.  Someone correct me I'm wrong.
As I understand it ivermectin is effective against all stages of migrating
larvae however only liquid Panacur 10% given for 5 days is effective against
encysted larvae.
I've been told the Panacur treatment should be given in Feb/March to kill
the encysted larvae before they exit "en masse" in the spring with the
associated risks of colic etc.
Strongid P or Pyratape at double dose is the only dewormer effective against
tape worm.  In Europe its recommended we deworm twice yearly against
tapeworm, spring and autumn (sorry, fall!).
