Panacur® SR Bolus
Continuous release intraruminal device
12g of fenbendazole per bolus
A cylindrical bolus consisting of 10 flat-faced tablets in a magnesium alloy tube and enclosed by plastic rings.
The bolus treats and prophylactically controls gastro-intestinal nematode infections in cattle caused by Ostertagia spp., Trichostrongylus spp., Haemonchus spp., Cooperia spp., and Oesophagostomum spp. The Panacur SR Bolus has been shown to reduce the risk of lungworm disease for at least 120 days following administration.
For the use in ruminating cattle weighing between 100kg and 300kg on the day of administration. When administered at turnout, the bolus controls parasitic gastroenteritis throughout the grazing season by reducing the build up of infective larvae on the pasture. Reduced pasture contamination in the autumn lowers the risk of inhibited Ostertagia larvae accumulating in sufficient numbers to cause winter ostertagiosis. When administered later in season, the bolus is effective in the treatment of established parasitic infections and continues to have a prophylactic effect up to 140 days after administration. This period may be reduced if cattle are moved to heavily infected pasture.
Dosage and method of administration
One bolus is administered orally to each animal before being turned out to grass. Alternatively, animals which have been already turned out can be administered a bolus later in the grazing season.
All animals within a group grazing the same pasture must be treated with s Panacur Bolus to ensure maximum benefits from the system. All newcomers to the group must also be administered a Panacur Bolus before being turned out to grass.
Administration is achieved using the Panacur Bolus Applicator which helps administer the bolus directly into the top of the oesophagus.
Animals must not be slaughtered for human consumptions during the treatment. Cattle may be slaughtered for human consumptions only after 200days from administration of the bolus. Do not administer to cattle producing milk for human consumption or to dairy heifers within 200 days prior to parturition.

Panacur SR Bolus has been used successfully and without undesirable effects in pregnant cows but is not intended for use in this class of animals.
