Product description

Strongid Paste is a potent equine wormer containing pyrantel, a compound from the tetrahydropyrimidine class.

Active ingredients

Each Strongid Paste syringe contains:

  • 3.6 grams of pyrantel base in 23.6 grams (20 mL) paste.

    Each Strongid Paste mL contains:

  • 180 mg pyrantel base as pyrantel pamoate

Indications for use

  • Strongid Paste is indicated 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.

Administration and dosage

  • 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.
Body Weight Range Volume mg Pyrantel Base
up to 300 lb 1/4 syringe (5 mL) 900 mg
301-600 lb 1/2 syringe (10 mL) 1800 mg
601-900 lb 3/4 syringe (15 mL) 2700 mg
901-1200 lb 1 full syringe (20 mL) 3600 mg
  • Position screw-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 retreatment 10 days to 2 weeks after birth of foal. Horses and ponies over 8 months of age should be routinely dosed every 6 weeks.

  • 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.
