Indications for use
Strongid C2X is an equine anthelmintic designed to be fed on a daily basis to provide a continuous, preventive level of pyrantel in the intestinal tract.
Strongid C2X is approved for the control of:
- Large strongyles–adults (S. vulgaris, S. edentatus); small strongyles–adults and 4th-stage larvae (Cyathostomum spp., Cylicocyclus spp., Cylicostephanus spp., Cylicodontophorus spp., Poteriostomum spp., Triodontophorus spp.); pinworms–adults and 4th-stage larvae (Oxyuris equi); ascarids–adults and 4th-stage larvae (Parascaris equorum)
Strongid C2X product highlights:
Helps prevent parasite build-up on a daily basis which may lead to better nutrition, health, appearance and performance
Continuous dosing of pyrantel tartrate in the gastrointestinal tract, instead of a conventional program of deworming every 60 days that leaves horses open to reinfection
Intended as daily preventive treatment ideally complemented by twice-yearly purge deworming
Suppresses buildup of parasite burden during intervals between periodic deworming, while allowing low levels of infection that maintains natural host immunity
Reduces pasture buildup of parasite eggs, limiting exposure to parasite larvae
Particularly useful where stocking density is high, pasture rotation is impossible, or exposure is continuous
Safe for use in pregnant mares and foals
