Lapizole is formulated to treat and prevent infections with Encephalitozoon cuniculi (E. cuniculi) in rabbits and it can also be used as part of a routine endoparasite prevention strategy in rabbits, ferrets, reptiles and birds. Lapizole contains an added aniseed flavouring which makes it easier for owners to dose for long periods. Lapizole is packaged in 100ml bottles, which provides enough to dose a 3.5kg rabbit for 28 days.
Prevents and treats common internal parasites of rabbits susceptible to fenbendazole including E. cuniculi.
Lapizole is only for use in rabbits, birds, reptiles and ferrets. Do not use in animals other than those indicated.
