Recommended protocol for worming with Panacur is to worm the dogs three days in a row.
The COST is going to be the SAME PER DOSE, with whatever you buy. If you buy in BULK, it will save you a few bucks, such as the 1# tub of Panacur 22%. Ivermectin WILL kill tapes if given in very high doses,which I dont do.
Kill the Parasite you WANT,with the DRUG INTENDED for such.
No need for Panacur 3 days, if you can kill the tapes and whips in ONE day, then swithc to Ivomec to kill the rounds and hooks in one shot. Repeat in two weeks, then Monthly for the BEST results. Otherwise, your simply 'controlling' them. A 1/10 of a cc/ml of 10% is NOT the same as 1/10 of 22%!! Published dose for Fenbendazole is 50mg/kg Ivermectin has SEVERL dose recc, based on WHAT TYPE of parasite your trying to kill.
OH, one other thing: to quote Jerry V. " I dont know why anyone would want to WORM thier dogs" LOL Roy Smith Adirondack Kennel Skandinavian Hounds "Tug Hill Plateau"

Fenbendazole is considered quite safe. Even at high doses, it is usually non-toxic. There is small risk of anaphylactic shock from treating a heavy worm infestation, but this is due to the parasites dying off in very large numbers. Vomiting may occur after treatment, but this is rare. Dead worms may be observed in a dog's stool after administering. Allergic reaction may occur. Panacur should not be used in a dog with a known hypersensitivity to fenbendazole. () (See Reference 2 -- answer for fourth question on page.)

To use the paste you should squeeze the product onto the back of your dog’s tongue after they have eaten a meal. The dosage is 2 syringe graduations for each kilogram in adult dogs or 1 syringe graduation per kilogram in puppies. These doses are to be given at the usual intervals.
We recommend sticking to the paste created for dogs as it’s much easier to work out and administer the correct amount.
Please speak to your vet before using this medicine. Your vet may recommend an altered dosage when treating Giardia or lungworm.
Intervet, the medicine’s manufacturer, recommends the routine use of fenbendazole at 100 mg/kg (around 45.4 mg/lb) as a single dose for adult dogs, and 50 mg/kg (around 22.7 mg/lb) for three days for weaned puppies under six months of age. The medicine is available in the form of granules, a liquid suspension, and a paste.
The Panacur C packaging recommends a daily dose of 50 mg/kg (which is about 1 gram of product for every 10 pounds your dog weighs) to be given for three consecutive days. This product is sold in 1, 2 and 4 gram sachets, with each gram containing 222 mg of fenbendazole. The treatment and prevention of intestinal worm infestations is greatly aided by modern dewormers. Very few have a broader spectrum or are safer to use than Panacur. In fact, Panacur is available for animals as broad ranging as cats, dogs and horses.
