    Default Panacur dosing frequency


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi all,

    I appreciate this is a topic that has been posted about many times but one thing I can't work out is the dosage for the 3 days.

    I sent a faecal off and it came back as all fine except for high pinworm levels. I took her to the vet, he gave her panacur 2 weeks ago as a 1 dosage hit which I didn't agree with. He has since refused to give any further information without seeing her again and would then charge me again and says I need to send another feacal off after 3 weeks, which I know is incorrect, and only then will it say if she needs another dosage.

    I am understandably annoyed at the option of paying 120 for a simple deworming so I bought the 100mg/kg suspension and am going to do it myself. She weighs 96g so I know that she needs 0.096ml for the full dosage following online guides.

    If I'm doing this over 3 days do I give her 0.032ml every day for 3 days or do I give her 0.096ml every day for 3 days?

    I also know I will have to repeat the dosage in 2 weeks.

    To try to stem any further questions:
    - She was seen by the vet and deemed perfectly healthy otherwise, so I am not at all worried about giving her another dosage
    - The first dosage didn't really seem to bother her
    - She is still eating fine
    - She is in a quarantine setup whilst I sterilise all of her decor, remove substrate, steam the interior and set it up again
    - The pinworm egg count is 15,500 EPG, which is high
    - I know how this happened and am rectifying the cause

    Apologies if this is a bit rambly, there just isn't that much info out there for leo dosing.

    Many thanks!

    Not being a vet, and not having treated a gecko with Panacur, I won't even chance a response. I'll be curious to know, though, what you end up doing.
