Came across this yesterday: http://www.dechra.co...ix/lapizole.pdf

 

It lists tortoises in the dosing table and appears to be the same active ingredient as Panacur. Anyone here tried it?

It is panacur, but it is liquid which is difficult to give to tortoises, plus it is flavoured with aniseed which appeals to rabbits, so not a good idea for tortoises. As aniseed is toxic to dogs, I would not like to risk it. I cannot see where it states the percentage of fenbendazole, so this could be another issue. In short I would not use a product that has been treated to appeal to mammals, especially when it is twice the price of a plain old tube of panacur ;) Just my thoughts of course ;)
