Strongid P Paste for horses contains pyrantel embonate pyrantel, a wormer effective against adult large and small redworms, ascarids, pinworms and at a double dose, some tapeworms.
It does not kill worm eggs, larvae, lungworms or bots.
Tapeworms are carried by forage mites which eat the tapeworm eggs and are swallowed in turn by the grazing horses.
The tapeworm dose is TWICE that needed for other worms ie two syringes for an average horse.
It may be given twice a year at beginning and end of the grazing season.
Normal roundworm dosage needs to be repeated every 4 -6 weeks.
One tube will treat 600kg but two tubes are needed to treat for tapeworm.
Strongid-P Paste is a safe, effective, well accepted and easily administered broad-spectrum anthelmintic, which is indicated for use in the horse and donkey for the control and treatment of adult infections of large and small strongyles, Oxyuris, Parascaris and Anoplocephala perfoliata. Strongid P horse wormer paste is effective against benzimidazole resistant strains of small strongyles and should be used wherever the presence of such strains is suspected.
Administration Strongid-P Paste is recommended for direct oral administration in horses, ponies and foals of over four weeks of age and donkeys.
It is not necessary to withhold any feed prior to administration.
The following method of administration is recommended:
1.Position the locking ring over the appropriate mark on the plunger.
2.Remove the cap from the nozzle. 3.The paste is best deposited on the upper surface (dorsum) of the tongue. Introduce the nozzle end of the syringe at the corner of the mouth (labial commissure).
Direct the syringe backwards and depress the plunger to deposit the paste onto the tongue. Providing the paste is given in this way it is unlikely that any rejection will occur.
Raising of the horse's head by a hand under the chin sometimes assists in the swallowing process. Dosage For the control and treatment of strongyles including benzimidazole resistant strains (redworm), Oxyuris (seatworm/pinworm) and Parascaris (roundworm). Strongid-P should be used at a dose rate of 19 mg pyrantel embonate per kg bodyweight.
Bodyweight range NB: 1 kg = 2.2 Ib Dose–contents of Up to 150 kg ¼ oral doser marked 150 kg 151 kg to 300 kg ½ oral doser marked 300 kg 301 kg to 450 kg ¾ oral doser marked 450 kg 451 kg to 600 kg Full oral doser marked 600 kg Note Position locking ring over appropriate mark on plunger.
Dosing programmes Strongyles (including benzimidazole resistant strains), Oxyuris and Parascaris. Foals - one to eight months of age Dose every four weeks. Horses and donkeys over eight months of age Routinely dose every six to eight weeks, but during the summer and autumn when at grass dose every four to six weeks.
Always dose three to four days before turning out after in-wintering.
Suckler mares It has been shown that reduction of strongyle challenge to the suckling foal at pasture can be achieved by using clean pasture (re-seeded or not grazed the previous year by horses), dosing the mare three to four days before turning out and then at intervals of two to four weeks until the end of autumn. Ideally mares with foals should go out to `clean' pasture or, if this is not possible, delay turning them out until June.
Dosage For the control and treatment of Anoplocephala perfoliata: (tapeworm).
Strongid-P should be used at a dose rate of 38mg pyrantel embonate per kg bodyweight, that is twice the dose rate for strongyles.
Dosing programme – Anoplocephala perfoliata The need for retreatment may vary, but if considered necessary should be carried out after an interval of six weeks.

Congratulations to the winner of this month's Question
of the Month,
who wins $100 for the following question:
I have 12 yr. old Male Black Lab that weighs 133 LB & was just diagnosed with heart worms. Are there any other options for him other than the Immiticide injections? Iï¿½m worried about this option because of the risk with his age. A couple veterinarians have told me to treat with heartgard for 12 months & may get negative test results in that time if I was needing a more affordable & safer option? Only other problem, Jordan has arthritis in his hip & currently takes 2 Rovera 100 mg. tablets dai...?
