Hello,

I am sorry to hear Ubu is not doing well. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Fenbendazole is still a good medication for internal parasites such as Giardia, whipworm and hookworm, but is not effective against other diseases. If she has diarrhea and a stool sample confirms internal parasites, fenbendazole at 50 mg per kg daily for 5 days would be appropriate. Giving a low dose such as 10 mg would not treat anything.

What symptoms does she have that you want to use fenbendazole?

I did not hear back from you; I hope you were able to see what I wrote! How is he doing? Can I answer anything else? If this was helpful, please let me know.
