Method 1:

Dissolved in a gel food at 1 percent by food volume = 1 gram per 4 ounces of food. Personally, I use flake or Tetra Bits as the food here because it is easy to measure.

Take the food you will be using and in a small pan add some hot water until it becomes a watery paste

Add the Panacur and then add one packet of Knox gelatin - 7 grams

Mix well

Using aluminum foil make a shallow 1 inch high mold and pour the food mix into this

Spread it out so it's about 1 - 2 cm thick, and let set in the refrigerator

Next cut it up into smaller squares and store in the freezer

When needed take out one of these small squares and cut it up into to bite size pieces

I use this food for 3 - 4 days in a row, then repeat treatment in about 3 weeks


Method 2:
If the fish is no longer eating, it can be tubed into the fishes' mouth at a dose of 75 - 100 mg/kg (2.2lbs), using a syringe.

Note: When using Panacur, check the concentration of the medicine. It comes as a powder or a liquid. If it’s a liquid suspension it's usually a 10 percent suspension, so multiply the above doses by 10.

This is for treatment of snails not fish disease and youre more likely not reading the reason of me wanting Flubendazole. I'm not going to ask every single snail to go and eat the food that was set out for them.

Before you start again telling me that this is same thing. It is not. RE-READ. SPELLING IS DIFFERENT. I'm not yelling, I'm implying that the spelling lesson that 95% of the general population will fail on catching the difference. Hence me being frustrated chasing down the golden goose that didn't exist.

FLU -BENDAZOLE (WHAT I WANTED)

FEN -BENDAZOLE (WHAT YOU "SUGGESTED")

two major different alphabets between those two drugs.

that's the difference between those two. Yes they're in the same class but they work totally different.

again, Fenbendazole (YOUR SUGGESTION) works differently than Flubendazole. The Fenbendazole has to be given in form of food as it won't work in the water column whereas the Flubendazole will.

That's why its imperative for people to check the spelling very very very carefully when they get their prescription drugs. This will save your life one day, as you will never know if the pharmacist ****** up or the doctor sent in the wrong spelling medication. I've heard stories from my workplace's nurse saying that the drug stores do royally fuck up on our clients drugs. So therefore, do some serious research when it comes to chemicals. Its not fun when one gets the spelling wrong and causes life-threatening injuries to themselves or others around them.

AGAIN- the flubendazole worked like wonders. I did 1/4 tsp per 10g for 10% formula from Inkmaker. only took 1 treatment but did 3 just in case the snails had eggs etc etc.

SO lesson learned to rest of you, read the drugs/chemicals/medications and learn the spelling them before even doing anything.

This is serious crap that kills people more often than one thinks not being able to tell difference and the side effects of bad interactions with other drugs/chemicals/medication whatever you want to name them.


to vipertek I do thank you for your effort/participation- using you as a prime example, don't feel bad, your responses was tooo common for me not to ignore.

(cough)

YOU google it. What is in Panacur? It is not flubenazole. This freaking was the half of the problem, more than 75 percent of people don't know how to read and giving wrong suggestions/info making the hunt more frustrating.



And for everyone else, yes Charles site was down during that weekend when I needed it but now that I have some already. :) Snails are now gone. Thank god. The snail case is now closed in that tank.

Have you tried a local vet? They use it against worms and other parasites in dogs and cats.
