Fenacure 3000 is a safe and effective medication for treating worm infections in humans and animals. Its active ingredient is fenbendazole, and each bolus contains 3g of it. It belongs to the chemical class of benzimidazoles with the vermicide function. The boli have an intense antiparasitic action against most parasitic worms that afflict the animal’s gastrointestinal system.
Fenbendazole (5-phenyl-thio-2-benzimidazole carbamate) is a broad-spectrum antiparasitic active ingredient used in veterinary medicine in dogs, cats, cattle, goats, sheep, poultry, and horses against internal parasites, such as roundworms and tapeworms. It is not used against agricultural and household pests. This drug is active against adult forms, larvae, and nematodes (adult and 4th – Stage Larvae), of the gastrointestinal tract, lungworms (adult and larvae), tapeworms (heads and segments) in cattle and large strongyles, small strongyles, pinworms, and ascarids in horses. Fenbendazole is also effective against hypobiotic larvae. Fenbendazole does not treat all types of intestinal worms. Your veterinarian may also prescribe fenbendazole for other types of parasites, including giardia in dogs.
Fenacure is often used for dogs, cats, and aquarium fish.
Fenacure 3000 is available as a tablet that should be given orally. It prevents the worms from absorbing nutrients from the intestine, eventually killing them.
In most countries, it is sold over-the-counter. The most frequent adverse reactions are constipation, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting. Please contact your veterinarian before giving Fenacure 3000 to your pet.
Fenbendazole is a white to light brownish-gray, odorless, tasteless crystalline powder insoluble in water but highly soluble in DMSO. Fenbendazole is not a macrolide antibiotic.
What is Fenacure 3000 (Fenbendazole)?
Fenacure 3000 is an effective medication for invermination (worm infestation) caused by many causative agents. Helminths susceptible to the Fenacure 3000 for animals include:
- nematodes or roundworms located in abomasum and intestines zones (adult/larvae);
- hookworms (adult/larvae);
- cestodes or tapeworms infecting cattle (both heads and segments are removed);
- strongyles, threadworms, ascarids infecting horses;
- hypobiotic larvae, etc.
The key advantages of Fenacure 3000 are its high efficiency, multifunctionality, and affordable cost.
Fenbendazole is a member of the class of benzimidazoles, 1H-benzimidazole, which is substituted at positions 2 and 5 by (methoxycarbonyl)amino and phenylsulfanediyl groups, respectively. A broad-spectrum anthelmintic, it is used, particularly in veterinary medicine, to treat nematode infections.
Fenbendazole is very poorly soluble in water. Therefore, orally administered fenbendazole is poorly absorbed into the bloodstream. So it must remain as long as possible in the rumen to form a reservoir from which it is progressively solved and absorbed. Direct administration into the abomasum (e.g., due to the “oesophageal groove reflex”) strongly diminishes the absorption and, consequently, its efficacy.
Absorbed fenbendazole is metabolized in the liver to its sulfoxide derivative, which is identical to oxfendazole, another veterinary anthelmintic benzimidazole. The oxfendazole produced through metabolism is released back to the rumen, where the bacterial flora reduces it back to fenbendazole. This increases the bioavailability of fenbendazole in ruminants.
In dogs, cats, and birds, the absence of such a reservoir as in ruminants enormously shortens the residual effect, which may require a higher dose or more frequent treatments to achieve the desired effect.
Influence of Diet
In ruminants, reducing the amount of feed slows down the exit flow of the rumen and prolongs the time the anthelmintic remains there and can be absorbed. Consequently, it is advisable to reduce the animals’ access to feed (predominantly fresh pasture, not water) 24 hours before administration. For the same reason, it is better to keep the animals away from food for about 6 hours after drenching. However, it is not applied to sick, weak, or pregnant animals. In cattle, a fiber-rich diet also increases the bioavailability of fenbendazole.
In contrast with this, in dogs and horses, administration of fenbendazole with the food increases the bioavailability of fenbendazole.
Influence of Parasites
Heavy infestations with gastrointestinal roundworms reduce the bioavailability of fenbendazole in ruminants. The reason is that the inflamed wall does not properly regulate the pH (acidity) in the abomasum and the intestine, which negatively influences the solubility and absorption of fenbendazole and the distribution of its metabolites. In addition, the passage of food through the stomach is also faster in case of heavy infestations, reducing the anthelmintic’s bioavailability.
Mechanism of Action
All benzimidazoles’ molecular mode of action, including fenbendazole, consists of binding to tubulin, a structural protein of microtubules. These microtubules are important organelles involved in the motility, division and secretion processes of cells in all living organisms. In the worms, blocking microtubules perturbs glucose uptake, eventually emptying glycogen reserves. This blocks the whole energy management mechanism of the worms that are paralyzed and die or are expelled.
Since cell division is also disturbed, worm egg production and development are blocked by benzimidazoles, i.e., most of them also have an ovicidal effect.
When administered orally, fenbendazole is easily absorbed in the intestine and distributed in the organs and tissues of the animal; excreted from the body in unchanged form and the form of metabolites, mainly with bile and partly with urine, in lactating animals also with milk. Although, according to the degree of impact on the body, they are classified as moderately hazardous substances, in recommended doses they are well tolerated by animals.
Fenbendazole has a broad spectrum of activity against gastrointestinal roundworms and lungworms of livestock, including adults and L4-larvae of the most important species (e.g., of the genus Bunostomum, Haemonchus, Ostertagia – Teladorsagia, Trichostrongylus, Cooperia, Nematodirus, Chabertia, Oesophagostomum, Trichuris, Dictyocaulus, Muellerius, etc.) as well as arrested larvae of several species. It is also effective against most livestock tapeworms (e.g., Moniezia, Taenia).
In horses, it controls the major parasitic roundworms such as Large Strongyles (Cyathostomins), Small Strongyles (Strongylus spp), Parascaris equorum, etc., as well as tapeworms. (e.g., Anaplocephala spp).
It is also effective against the major parasitic roundworms (e.g., Ancylostoma, Toxocara, Trichuris, Uncinaria) and tapeworms (e.g., Echinococcus, Dipylidium, Taenia, etc.) of dogs and cats.
Fenbendazole is absorbed slowly in the stomach. Therefore the longer it remains there, the better the efficacy. However, in carnivores (e.g., dogs and cats) and other animals with a simple stomach, the passage through the stomach is relatively fast; therefore, a higher dosage is required.
In ruminants, fenbendazole has only a limited residual effect unless delivered using a slow-release device. This means that a single administration will kill the parasites present in the host at the time of treatment and protect against re-infestations for a few more days, but not for weeks or months. In non-ruminants, the residual effect is substantially shorter, i.e., only a few hours.
At the therapeutic dose, fenbendazole is ineffective against flukes and external parasites.
Unfortunately, the resistance of several gastrointestinal roundworms to all benzimidazoles, including fenbendazole, is already very high and very frequent worldwide in sheep and goats, slightly lower in cattle. For this reason, the risk that benzimidazoles fail to protect ruminants against gastrointestinal roundworms is considerable worldwide. However, so far, the resistance of worms to benzimidazoles in dogs, cats, pigs, and poultry is not a serious problem.
The efficacy of in-feed fenbendazole at a dose of 7.5 mg/kg bodyweight for 3 consecutive days was assessed in the following animals kept in five herds in a zoo:
- 5 Arabian oryx (Oryx leucoryx);
- 6 scimitar-horned oryx (Oryx dammah);
- 14 slender-horned gazelles (Gazella leptoceros);
- 8 Soay sheep (Ovis aries Aries soay);
- 13 alpine ibex (Capra ibex);
- six red deer (Cervus elaphus hippelaphus;
- 11 Nelson’s elk (Cervus elaphus nelsoni).
The efficacy was assessed using repeated fecal egg count reduction tests (fecr) and in vitro egg hatch assays. Fenbendazole was highly effective against nematodes in five of the seven species, consistently reducing egg shedding by more than 90%. In addition, in the egg hatch assays of the five herds, 50% inhibition of hatching (ld50) was observed at a concentration of thiabendazole below 0.1 mcg/ml.
In the Arabian oryx and alpine ibex, the efficacy of fenbendazole was less than 90%, and the ld50 in the egg hatch assays was between 0.1 and 0.2 mcg/ml thiabendazole.

Uses of Fenacure 3000
You can detect worm infections in your cattle and pets by numerous symptoms. The most typical will be:
- loss of weight;
- appetite disorders;
- abdominal swelling;
- stools disorders.
When your animal is infected with helminths of the classes mentioned above, buy Fenacure 3000 veterinary capsules to block the reproduction of parasites and remove them from the gastrointestinal tract.
Fenacure 3000 (fenbendazole) is taken orally. The correct way to calculate the dosage is to consult a veterinarian. The recommended dose is 10mg of fenbendazole per kg of body weight (one bolus of Fenacure 3000 per 300kg) orally.
Fenbendazole should be given with food to reduce gastrointestinal upset. Give this medication as directed by your veterinarian. Fenbendazole is often given once daily for three consecutive days and then again in about 2-3 weeks.
Your animal must receive all the doses recommended by your veterinarian for the best results. Unless your veterinarian advises you to, never stop taking medication too soon or skip a dose. If the medicine is stopped too soon, dosages are missed, or the patient becomes reinfected from the environment, retreatment may be required.
Although apparent results won’t be noticed until the end of treatment, this medication should start working in 1 to 2 days.
Give a missed dosage as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose and administer it at the next planned time if the time for the subsequent dose is approaching. Never administer additional dosages or two doses at once to your animal.
Fenacure 3000 (Fenbendazole) for Dogs and Cats
Mix the daily dose with a small amount of your pet’s usual food. Your animal should eat all of the medicated food. If you feed your pet dry food, it may need to be moistened for better mixing.
In case the pet’s weight is in-between suggested dosing sizes, it’s safe to use the next higher size. For example, a 15-pound dog should be treated with the 2gm of the medicine.
Fenacure 3000 is safe for all dogs and cats six weeks and older, including pregnant pets. Many puppies are dewormed after weaning at 6, 8, 10, and 12 weeks. Adult dogs may require deworming twice yearly or when parasites are present. Your veterinarian will determine a schedule that is appropriate for your pet.
Deworming schedules of the dog and cat may vary depending on the climate where you live and your animal’s activity.
Fenbendazole generally is not effective as a one-time dose. For puppies and kittens over six weeks, fenbendazole is used once a day for three consecutive days in a single dose.
With increased individual sensitivity of animals to the active components of the drug (more often observed in cats than in dogs) and the appearance of allergic reactions, the use of the drug should be stopped, and antihistamine drugs are usually prescribed to the animal. Symptoms of an overdose of the drug have not been identified.
Medication should never be administered without first consulting your veterinarian. 25 mg per pound (50 mg/kg) daily for three consecutive days is usually adequate for dogs and cats. The condition being treated, the patient’s response to the drug, and the emergence of any side effects – all influence how long the treatment should last. Unless your veterinarian specifically instructs you otherwise, complete the treatment. Even if your pet is feeling better, you should follow all instructions to avoid relapse or the occurrence of resistance.

Fenacure 3000 (Fenbendazole) for Fish
This medication is used as an anthelmintic for aquarium fish in powder form. For obvious reasons, it is impossible to introduce medicine to fish in any way other than by adding it to the water in the aquarium. Fenbendazole (5-phenyl-thio-2-benzimidazole carbamate) acts as an active ingredient, and fodder bentonite, a natural mineral supplement, acts as a special auxiliary filler. As a result, the medicine looks like a homogeneous loose mass of light gray color.
In aquarium husbandry, it is mainly used in doses of 2 to 8 mg/liter, depending on the total hardness of the water. When fenbendazole is introduced into the aquarium, the pH may rise by one to two degrees.
Do not expect a quick reaction to the active substance. And don’t try to transplant decor or residents to another aquarium; they can be carriers of worms.
For 2-3 days after the medicine application, the parasites will begin sticking to the aquarium’s walls, trying to escape from fenbendazole. At this time, the fish will feed themselves with dying worms. Snails and shrimp will eventually consume dead remains. Your aquarium will remain clean, and all its inhabitants will be healthy. There will be no adverse effect from fenbendazole on fish and other aquarium inhabitants. And if these parasites are in the water that you regularly change in the aquarium, add fenbendazole during settling. Your underwater inhabitants will always be healthy.
Fenacure 3000 (Fenbendazole) for Cattle, Horses, and Buffaloes
Fenacure 3000 is indicated for removing and controlling adult and immature forms of gastrointestinal roundworms, hookworms, lungworms, and tapeworms.
It helps in the infestation of large and small strongyles in horses.
Mix the daily dose with a small amount of your animal’s food. Your animal should eat all of the medicated food.
Deworming schedules may vary depending on your live climate and animal activity.
Fenbendazole generally is not effective as a one-time dose. Therefore, it is used once a day for three consecutive days in a single dose.
With increased individual sensitivity of animals to the active components of the drug and the appearance of allergic reactions, the use of the drug should be stopped, and antihistamine drugs are usually prescribed to the animal. Symptoms of an overdose of the drug have not been identified.
Do not give the medication to the animal without consulting your veterinarian. Unless your veterinarian specifically instructs you otherwise, complete the treatment. Even if your animal is feeling better, you should follow all instructions to avoid relapse or the occurrence of resistance.
|Dosing Recommendations for Fenbenzadole for Cattle, Sheep, Goats, Swine, Horses (Oral Delivery)|
|Parasites||Dose for Cattle||Dose for Sheep||Dose for Goats||Dose for Swine||Dose for Horses|

|Strongyloides spp||5 mg/kg/day 3 days||10mg/kg/day 5 days or 50mg/kg/day 3 days|
|Trichuris suis||25 mg/kg|
For several days, give the drug at the suggested dosage. Taking fenbendazole regularly usually has no side effects, so you won’t need to control the withdrawal period (unlike if antibiotics are used with their toxic injections). Sometimes, especially if fenbendazole is administered at doses higher than usual, chemicals generated by the dying parasites can result in an allergic reaction. Seek emergency veterinarian assistance if your animal shows any symptoms of an allergic response, such as face swelling, itching, hives, diarrhea, seizures, or shock.
Fenbendazole is metabolized in the liver to oxfendazole, which is anthelmintic too; oxfendazole partially gets reduced back to fenbendazole in the liver and rumen.
Excretion occurs mainly through feces. Six days after oral administration in cattle and sheep, about 35% of the ingested dose is excreted, and about 5% is metabolized. A small amount is excreted through urine, mainly in various metabolites. Excretion in goats is about twice as fast as in sheep.
In dogs 48 hours after administration, fenbendazole is not detectable in blood plasma, in birds after 36 hours, and in cats after seven days.
This moderate-acting medication should stop working in a few days, although the effects can be longer in pets with liver or kidney disease.
Important Safety Information for Animals Owners
Fenbendazole has no teratogenic or embryotoxic properties. However, its administration is not recommended during the first month of pregnancy.
Fenbendazole is safe for use in most pets, but it should not be used in:
- puppies younger than six weeks of age;
- sick animals.
Fenbendazole is considered safe for use in pregnancy in all species.
Fenbendazole did not affect testicular function tests in sheep and horses.
Treatment is necessary for 3-5 consecutive days for most parasites. Treatment may require a second course depending on which parasite is being treated.
If treatment is skipped, inform your veterinarian as the treatment course may need to be repeated. This goes especially for the accidental omission of the follow-up course.
Give fenbendazole with food for best absorption into the body.
The manufacturers of the medicine pay increased attention to the careful selection of auxiliary components responsible for the taste of the pills attractive to the animal. In most cases, animals don’t feel the medicine in their food. So there will be no problems giving the Fenacure 3000 to the animal.
Never administer any drug without your veterinarian’s input. Serious side effects or death can occur if you use drugs on your pet without your veterinarian’s advice.
The size of the tablet/medication is NOT an indication of a proper dose.
Consult your vet to get more information about the dosage for your animal.
After treatment, your veterinarian may recommend a fecal examination to be sure that all internal parasites have been killed and determine if additional treatment courses are needed.
Contraindications and Warnings
Fenbendazole is not known to interact with other medications. However, it is still a good idea to let your vet know about any supplements, vitamins, or herbal medicines your pet receives.
Drug interactions may result if salicylanilides like dibromsalan and niclosamide are taken together. For example, after using these drugs simultaneously, there have been reports of abortions in cattle and sheep. In addition, concurrent use of anti-trematode therapeutics has been linked to abortions in domesticated ruminants.
At the recommended dosage, fenbendazole is safe and doesn’t cause any side effects. However, substances released by the dying parasites sometimes cause an allergic reaction, especially if fenbendazole is given at higher than regular doses. See veterinary care if your pet shows signs of an allergic reaction;
- facial swelling;
Salivation, vomiting, and diarrhea may occur in dogs or cats receiving this medication. The presence of dead worms in the stool may infrequently be observed.
Call your veterinary office immediately if you suspect an overdose or an adverse reaction to the medication. If they are unavailable, follow their directions in contacting an emergency facility.
Animal immune systems may create antibodies while destroying worms. As a result, hypersensitivity reactions might occasionally be seen. As the dose is increased, the likelihood of their happening increases. Vomiting and weakness are common signs of overdose.
The storage is quite simple: keep tablets protected from sunlight and in conditions between 68-77°F (20-25°C). Do not leave them in places accessible for kids.
If your veterinarian has made a special formulation for your pet, follow the storage recommendations on the label and expiration date for the product.
