INDICATIONS & USAGE
INDICATIONS: 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.
DOSAGE & ADMINISTRATION
DOSAGE AND TREATMENT: Pyrantel Paste (pyrantel pamoate) is to be adminitered as a single oral dose of 3 milligrams pytantel base per pound of body weight. The syringe has four weight mark increments. Each weight mark indicated the recommended dose for 300 pounds of body weight.
DOSAGE Body Weight Range Quantity mg Pyrantel Base
up to 300 lb
301 to 600 lb
601 to 900 lb
901 to 1200 lb
1 full syringe
NOTE: Position ring-gauge over appropriate mark on plunger.
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.
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 in 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 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%).
