Durvet Triple Wormer vs Panacur C Dewormer
Two popular options for deworming your dog are Durvet Triple Wormer and Panacur C Dewormer.
Both products are designed to eliminate roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms.
The main difference between them is the active ingredients used and the way you administer them to your dog.
Here’s a breakdown of the ingredients in each product and what people are saying about them.
Durvet Triple Wormer Ingredients
Durvet Triple Wormer is a flavored chewable tablet that is designed to treat and control roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms in dogs.
The active ingredients in each tablet are pyrantel pamoate (30 mg) and praziquantel (30 mg).
Pyrantel pamoate is a medication that works by paralyzing and killing the worms. It’s effective against roundworms and hookworms.
Praziquantel works by damaging the tapeworm’s skin, causing it to disintegrate. It’s effective against tapeworms only.
Durvet Triple Wormer has a few inactive ingredients – artificial beef flavor, corn starch, and magnesium stearate.
Panacur C Dewormer Ingredients
Panacur C Dewormer is another popular option for deworming dogs.
Its active ingredient is fenbendazole (222 mg per gram).
Fenbendazole is a medication that works by interfering with the metabolism of the worms, causing them to die. It’s a broad spectrum dewormer ingredient that works against a wide range of parasites, including roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and tapeworms. It’s proven to work as long as you’ve given your dog the correct dosagefor his/her weight.
Panacur C Dewormer also contains some inactive ingredients: corn starch, lactose, magnesium stearate, and sodium lauryl sulfate.
So which is the better dewormer to use out of these two?
If you want a chewable tablet, Durvet Triple Wormer is the way to go.
But Panacur C Dewormer can be easier to tailor the dosage to your dog’s correct weight because it’s available in different strengths.
