Pyrantel Paste is formulated for the removal and control of mature infections of large strongyles, small strongyles, pinworms, and large roundworms in horses and ponies. It is an excellent worming solution to use on foals (2-8 months) and pregnant or lactating mares. It is not to be used on severely thin or debilitated horses.
For the removal and control of mature infections of large strongyles (Strongylus vulgaris, 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.
Critical (worm count) studies in horses demonstrated that pyrantel pamoate 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%).
Dosage and Treatment:
Pyrantel Paste is to be administered in a single oral dose of 3mg pyrantel base per pound of body weight. The syringe has four (4) weight mark increments. Each weight mark indicates the recommended dose for 300 lb. of body weight. Position ring-gauge over appropriate mark on plunger.
Up to 300 lb.: ¼ syringe
301-600 lb.: ½ syringe
601-900 lb.: ¾ syringe
901-1200 lb.+: 1 full syringe
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 re-treatment 10 days to 2 weeks after birth of foal. Horses and ponies over 8 months of age should be routinely dosed every 6 weeks. It is recommended that severely debilitated animals not be treated with this preparation.
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. When only part of the paste has been used, replace the cap on the syringe nozzle.
Tube size is 4" and the nozzle is 1½.
