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.
up to 300 lbs........1/4 syringe (5 mL), 900 mg
301-600 lbs........1/2 syringe (10 mL), 1800 mg
601-900 lbs........3/4 syringe (15 mL), 2700 mg
901-1200 lbs........1 full syringe (20 mL), 3600 mg
It is recommended that foals 2-8 months of age be dosed every 4 weeks. Mares should be treated 1 month prior to anticipated foaling date and re-treated 10 days to 2 weeks after birth of the foal. Horses and ponies over 8 months of age should be routinely dosed every 6 weeks.
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.
