You can get panacur in pellet form. Injections are a lot cheaper though.

I may be wrong, but I think that the granular and liquid forms do not cover for lice. Just worms, I think. Also, (not sure if it is for the granular types) but the liquid version is only to be given to pigs not going into the food chain.

I was told that as we were only doing three, it would be easier to buy a smaller amount in granules?

It may be cheaper for you to get the granules for your 3 - given in either a mashed banana or jam sarnie ( not been in your kitchen at any time before hand ) I use Flubenol powder for this, which should have a fairly good shelf life if kept dry & out of the  :sunshine:
You could check with your vet - they may do individual syringes for them ( which could work out cheaper for you ) I use Ivomec for this - quick jab about an inch behind the ear.
Only the injection will work for external parasite (lice, mange etc) - I do mine once a year with it & use the powder for the 6th month in-between.
