The Science of Safe

  • High degree of safety ‐ Safe for foals and pregnant mares, older horses, thin and underweight horses, miniature horses, the environment and for use around other farm animals and pets
  • Works on a wide variety of parasites ‐ Labeled for the control of large and small strongyles (including migrating larvae), pinworms and ascarids (roundworms)
  • Effective on encysted small strongyles ‐ A larvicidal dose is the only FDA-approved treatment for all stages of encysted small strongyles
  • Reliable protection for foals ‐ Widely recognized as the product of choice for treating ascarids in young horses
  • Combat resistance ‐ May be effective even in the face of prior fenbendazole resistance when used as part of a strategically designed anthelmintic program1
  • 10 % (100 mg/g) fenbendazole paste
  • The antiparasitic action of Panacur® (fenbendazole) POWERPAC is due to the inhibition of energy metabolism in the parasite.
