Panacur Bolus is a continuous-release intraruminal device containing fenbendazole; a broad spectrum benzimidazole anthelmintic used against gastrointestinal parasites. When administered at turnout, the intraruminal device 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 ostertagiasis. When administered later in the season, the intraruminal device 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.
