Parasite Control in Dogs, Fenbendazole for Canine Cancer
Deworming Dogs

Your dog's health is a top priority, and one crucial aspect of their well-being is protecting them from harmful parasites. #Fenbendazole, a widely used dewormer, is an effective way to combat internal parasites in dogs. In this blog, we'll explore what fenbendazole is, how it works, and how to use it safely to keep your furry friend parasite-free.


What is Fenbendazole?

Fenbendazole is a parasiticidal medication that is commonly used to treat various types of internal parasites in pets. It belongs to a class of drugs known as benzimidazoles, which work by disrupting the parasites' ability to absorb nutrients, ultimately leading to their removal from the pet's body. In addition, Fenbendazole is used as a cancer treatment for dogs too.

Common Internal Parasites in Dogs

Before diving into the use of fenbendazole, it's essential to understand which internal parasites it can help combat:

  1. Roundworms: These are one of the most common intestinal parasites in dogs. They can cause various health issues, including gastrointestinal discomfort, weight loss, and vomiting.

  2. Hookworms: These attach to the intestinal lining and can cause severe anemia, diarrhea, and lethargy.

  3. Whipworms: These live in the cecum (which is a "Pouch" that is connected to the beginning of the large intestine) and colon of dogs and can lead to bloody diarrhea, weight loss, and general weakness.

  4. Tapeworms: These can be transmitted to dogs through the ingestion of infected fleas or by consuming prey animals. They can cause irritation around the dog's rear end and are often visible in feces (most noticed when dogs drag their butts on the carpet).

Using Fenbendazole to Deworm Your Dog

When it comes to deworming your dog with fenbendazole, here are some key steps to follow:

  • Dosage and Administration: Fenbendazole is typically available in various forms, including oral tablets and pastes. Read the label to administer the correct dosage based on your dog's size, weight, and specific needs.

  • Follow the Schedule: Fenbendazole is often administered daily for a specific duration, depending on the type of parasites being targeted. It's essential to follow the treatment schedule as directed on the package.

  • Administer with Food: Fenbendazole is best given with a small amount of food to improve absorption and reduce the risk of stomach upset. Ideally, if you purchase granules, you can put it in your dog's food bowl and soak organic olive oil over it for a few minutes, then let your dog lick if from the bowl.

  • Monitor for Side Effects: While fenbendazole is generally safe, monitor your dog for any signs of adverse reactions, such as vomiting, or diarrhea, which can happen. If your dog starts to vomit, these are signs of a huge worm kill-off. Wait and administer the next dose a day or two later.

  • Preventative Measures: To minimize the risk of future parasitic infections, maintain good hygiene for your dog, including regular flea control, cleaning up feces promptly, and avoiding contact with potentially contaminated environments.

How I Personally Use Fenbendazole

I prefer the liquid fenbendazole goat de-wormer for my dogs. It is less expensive if you are deworming multiple dogs. I have 4 dogs and the liquid fenbendazole goat de-wormer is more cost effective than using the dry granular standard package dosing for dogs. The standard dosage of fenbendazole for deworming dogs is typically 50 milligrams per kilogram of body weight, once daily, for three consecutive days. This dosage may vary depending on the type of parasites being targeted and the specific product being used.

Given that I have one dog weighing 65 pounds (approximately 29.5 kilograms) and another weighing 80 pounds (approximately 36.3 kilograms), you would need to calculate the appropriate dosage based on their individual weights. Here's a general guideline:

For My 65-pound dog:

  • 29.5 kg x 50 mg/kg = 1475 mg

  • 1475 mg is equivalent to 1.475 grams

For My 80-pound dog:

  • 36.3 kg x 50 mg/kg = 1815 mg

  • 1815 mg is equivalent to 1.815 grams

  • I personally choose to deworm both of my large dogs as 100-pound animals, and I give my large breed dogs each 20 mL for three days in a row, four days off, and then I repeat this a few more times.

  • I personally choose to deworm my 45 lb dog and 55 lb dog each with 10 mL for three days in a row, four days off, and then I repeat this a few more times.

Always check the product label for the specific concentration of fenbendazole and follow the dosage instructions on the packaging, as the products come in various concentrations, such as 222 mg/g or 100 mg/g.

Additionally, the dosing schedule of three days on and four days off may be suitable for certain types of parasites or treatment plans, but it's essential to discuss this schedule with your veterinarian to ensure it's appropriate for your dog's specific needs. Additionally, be prepared for your vet to recommend another de-wormer that is sold on site. Keep in mind, your vet will mark up their dewormer significantly, and know, they get kickbacks and monetary incentives to sell other brands of expensive dog de-wormers from pharmaceutical companies.

Fenbendazole for Cancer & Fenbendazole for Human Consumption

Fenbendazole (AKA: Panacur) has garnered attention in recent years due to anecdotal reports suggesting potential benefits in cancer treatment. Some pet owners have explored fenbendazole as an adjunct therapy for canine cancer.

The idea behind using fenbendazole for cancer is based on its purported ability to disrupt microtubule formation in cells, potentially interfering with cancer cell growth. While some pet owners have reported anecdotal success stories, it's essential to approach such claims with caution. Cancer in dogs is a complex and serious condition that requires a well-established treatment plan developed in consultation with an expert.


In addition to de-worming all my animals with this product, I personally take Fenbendazole for my human consumption too. I take it three days a week, four days off and I repeat. I will do this on schedule for the next year. Have I seen worms come out of me, Y-E-S!

My thoughts: if you deworm your animals, don't forget to deworm yourself too.

Fenbendazole safety and efficacy for human use have not been thoroughly studied or regulated. It is essential to prioritize your health and consult with a qualified healthcare professional for human medical treatments and deworming.

For more information on fenbendazole for human use, research and read up on "The Joe Tippins Protocol." See short video about it in my YouTube video above.

For your animals, fenbendazole can be a valuable tool for deworming when administered according to the appropriate dosages and guidelines provided by a veterinarian. Deworming schedules and doses may vary depending on the type of animal and specific weight, so it's essential to seek professional veterinary advice to ensure the well-being of your pets and livestock.

When it comes to your health and the health of your animals, always rely on proven and safe medical treatments and consult with the appropriate experts to address any health concerns or deworming needs effectively and safely.

Testimonial - My dog had a dry cracked nose for over a year. I dewormed him with #fenbendazole, and now his nose is moist and the cracking is instantly gone. I will continue to deworm my animals on a regular base. I didn't realize the #healthbenefits of #DewormingDogs. ~ Bobbi Brien
