    Hi. How do I get my hands on dewormer meds? My vet wants me to bring them in to get a weight. I was recommended to administer 1cc of panacur but don't even know how to get it

    You can get de-wormer meds @ Tractor Supply, Southern States, etc...

    Buy a kitchen scale and weigh them... no need to have the vet do that, then go to Tractor Supply and buy some Safeguard for goats, it's the exact same thing as Panacur, boh are 10% fenbendazole (100 mg/ml).

    Welcome to BYC!

    Panacur or Safeguard - Paste vs liquid


    • Panacur and Safeguard are the exact same thing, both are 10% fenbendazole, which means that each 1 gram or 1 ml has 100 mg.

    • 1 cc of the paste = 1 cc of the liquid = 100 mg

    Hope that helps.
