It depends on what you have. Panacur paste is easy to administer on leaves, by pasting it onto a leaf and sticking another on top of it. The hosre one is often flavoured with cinnamon, so not so easy to use as the torts seem not to like the taste, but puppy and kitten one is fine as not flavoured. Liquid panacur is harder to administer unless you are used to stomach tubing, in which case, easy. Granules can be mixed with a little soft fruit (just for medication purposes). what sort of medication do you have for them?

The vets gave me the liquid which seems near impossible to administer. Winston is very clever and won't eat anything that smells funny, I have trouble getting him to eat his nutrabol,
