I would use Black Knight I think its the best on the market, its a little more money but well worth it!

Proexotics sell it for 20$ a can.
http://www.proexotics.com/supplies.html

Here is a good page they wrote up on mites and black knight..
http://www.proexotics.com/FAQ_answer..._of_mites.html

As far as parazap I can only find it being sold in US and in Europe...sorry

xetox,
Para-zap is used to treat internal parasites, not external (mites, ticks, etc) like BK...

jakejeff,
It can be very difficult to have medications/pesticides/chemicals/herbals shipped across borders, due to touchy legal issues, and differences in approval from country to country. Many companies don't want to risk getting nabbed. I don't know the specifics on Para-zap, but I'm guessing it would fit into that generalization. Hopefully someone else will have some better info for you

Panacur won't prevent, just kill active infestations so it's not something you want to use regularly. Some folks use it once or twice a year just in case there are worms but that doesn't stop them from picking up worms a week or two later if they are exposed.

I use and like Parazap but it's not a cureall by any means. It's not effective against flagellates and protozoans so there's lots of common critters it doesn't touch. I've found it to be really great with pinworms and hookworms though.

Country:
Fenbendazole (Panacur) is a relatively safe medication to use, when administered properly in the correct dosages in animals that are strong enough. I shotgun treat my animals as I feel needed with it. It has a good safety margin, as well as it isn't too harsh on their systems, but covers a broad spectrum.

You can get it at most farm supply stores. In the states places such as Bean Farm also carry it. Take care.
