STRONGID Paste is an equine dewormer containing pyrantel, a compound from the tetrahydropyrimidine class. STRONGID Paste is approved for the removal and control of mature infections of large strongyles (Strongylus vulgaris, S. edentatus, S. equinus); pinworms (Oxyuris equi); large roundworms (Parascaris equorum); and small strongyles in horses and ponies.
To be administered as a single oral dose of 3 mg pyrantel base per pound of body weight. The syringe has four (4) weight mark increments. Each weight mark indicates the recommended dose for 300 pounds of body weight
For maximum control of parasitism, it is recommended that foals (2 to 8 months of age) be dosed every four (4) weeks. To minimize the potential source of infection that the mare may pose to the foal, the mare should be treated one (1) month prior to the anticipated foaling date followed by retreatment 10 days to two (2) weeks after birth of foal. Horses and ponies over eight (8) months of age should be routinely dosed every six (6) weeks. Veterinarians are the best source to determine frequency of treatments
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 in the swallowing process. If only part of the paste has been used, replace the cap on the syringe nozzle
