Indications For Use:For the removal and control of mature infections of large strongyles (Strongylus vulgairs, S. edentatus, S. equinus); small strongyles; pinworms (Oxyuris equi); and large roundworms (Parascaris equorum) in horses and ponies.
Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism.
Dosage and Treatment:Strongid Paste is to be administered as a single oral dose of 3 mg pyrantel base per lb of body weight. The syringe has 4 weight mark increments. Each weight mark indicates the recommended dose for 300 lb of body weight.
Note: Position screw-gauge over appropriate mark on plunger. Each mL contains 180 mg pyrantel pamoate.
For maximum control of parasitism, it is recommended that foals (2-8 months of age) be dosed every 4 weeks. To minimize the potential source of infection that the mare may pose to the foal, the mare should be treated 1 month prior to anticipated foaling date followed by retreatment 10 days to 2 weeks after birth of foal. Horses and ponies over 8 months of age should be routinely dosed every 6 weeks.Administration:After removing the cap, the paste should be deposited on the dorsum of the tongue. Introduce the nozzle end of the syringe at the corner of the mouth. Direct the syringe backwards and depress the plunger to deposit the paste onto the tongue. Given in this manner, it is unlikely that rejection of the paste will occur. Raising the horse's head sometimes assists the swallowing process. When only part of the paste has been used, replace the cap on the syringe nozzle.
Efficacy:Critical (worm count) studies in horses demonstrated that Strongid Paste administered at the recommended dosage was efficacious against mature infections of Strongylus vulgaris (>90%), S. edentatus (69%), S. equinus (>90%), Oxyuris equi (81%), Parascaris equorum (>90%), and small strongyles (>90%).
Warnings: Not for use in horses intended for food. Keep out of reach of children.
It is recommended that severely debilitated animals not be treated with this preparation.
Recommended Storage:Store at 15°-30°C (58°-86°F).
