fenbendazole kills snails. It's actually one of the ways people tell the medication is at the right dosage... If it kills snails, it could kill the shrimp too...

Also, I had no idea shrimp could carry callamanus worms or other parasites? Is there any source for your concerns that you can share?

Fenbendazole does not kill snails at the correct dosage! I used it in my snail breeding tank to kill a hydra infestation. It only takes away tiny amount, half a pinch.
The question I have yet to find an answer to is, what is the correct dosage? One that does not kill shrimps or invertebrates, but cures the worm infestation in fish like corydoras.
