Strongid Paste contains 43.9% pyrantel pamoate in an easy-to-use oral syringe for rotational parasite control. Concentrated 20 ml syringe worms horses up to 1,200 lbs. For horses and ponies over 8 months, administer every six weeks; for foals two to eight months old, use every 4 weeks. For Horses.
Strongid® C-2X Concentrated Equine Anthelmintic (Pyrantel Tartrate)
Strongid® C-2X™ (pyrantel tartrate) 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 C-2X prevents migration of large strongyle (Strongylus vulgaris) larvae.
Strongid C-2X is approved for:
Prevention of Strongylus vulgaris larval infestation in horses and control of large strongyles (S. vulgaris, S. edentatus); small strongyles (adults) Cyathostomum spp., Cylicocyclus spp., Cylicostephanus spp., Cylicodontophorus spp., Poteriostomum spp., Triodontophorus spp.; small strongyles (4th-stage larvae); pinworms (adults and 4th-stage larvae) Oxyuris equi and ascarids (adults and 4th-stage larvae) Parascaris equorum.
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. Feed daily to prevent Strongylus vulgaris larval infestation in horses. Controls a variety of large strongyles, small strongyles, pinworms, and ascarids. Safe for use in pregnant mares and foals.
Dosage and Administration
Strongid C-2X is to be administered on a continuous basis either as a top-dress or mixed in the horse's daily grain ration at the rate of 1.2 mg pyrantel tartrate per pound of body weight daily. To achieve this dose, administer 0.5 oz of Strongid C-2X per 250 lb of body weight. (A Strongid C-2X measuring cup is enclosed. Please note it is different in size and shape from the original Strongid C measuring cup due to the higher concentration of Strongid C-2X.)
Strongid C-2X should be administered for the entire period that the animal is at risk to internal parasites. Unprotected animals that have grazed may already have an established S. vulgaris larval infestation. Before administering Strongid C-2X, these animals should be treated with a therapeutic dose of a larvicidal product. Foals may be administered Strongid C-2X as soon as consistent intake of grain mix is occurring. This is generally between 2-3 months of age. Strongid C-2X may be used in mares at any stage of pregnancy or lactation. Stallion fertility is not affected by the use of Strongid C-2X.

Consult your veterinarian before using in severely debilitated animals and for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism. Do not mix in feeds containing bentonite. Not for use in horses intended for food.
Active Drug Ingredient:
Pyrantel Tartrate 2.11% (9.6 g/lb)
Dehydrated Alfalfa Meal, Wheat Middlings, Cane Molasses, Mineral Oil, Propionic Acid (Preservative)
Strongid® (pyrantel pamoate) Paste is a potent equine wormer containing pyrantel, a compound from the tetrahydropyrimidine class. Strongid Paste removes and controls most common and damaging internal parasites including bloodworms, small strongyles, pinworms, and large roundworms. Strongid Paste is a pale-yellow-to-buff paste containing 43.9% w/w pyrantel pamoate in an inert vehicle. Each syringe contains 3.6 grams pyrantel base in 23.6 g (20 ml) paste. Each ml contains 180 mg pyrantel base as pyrantel pamoate.
Strongid Paste is approved for:
The removal and control of mature infections of large strongyles (Strongylus vulgaris, S. edentatus, S. equinus); pinworms (Oxyuris equi); large roundworms (Parascaris equorum); and small strongyles in horses and ponies.
Removes and controls a variety of equine worms. Effective against benzimidazole-resistant small strongyles. Chemical class, unrelated to other classes of equine anthelmintics. Use in rotational deworming programs. Convenient disposable syringe treats 1,200 lb body weight. Wide margin of safety.
Dosage and Administration
Strongid Paste is to be administered as a single oral dose of 3 mg pyrantel base per pound of body weight. The syringe has four (4) weight mark increments. Each weight mark indicates the recommended dose for 300 pounds of body weight.
- Position screw-gauge over appropriate mark on plunger. Each ml contains 180 mg pyrantel base as pyrantel pamoate.
- 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.
For maximum control of parasitism, it is recommended that foals (2 to 8 months of age) be dosed every four (4) weeks. To minimize the potential source of infection that the mare may pose to the foal, the mare should be treated one (1) month prior to the anticipated foaling date followed by additional treatment 10 days to two (2) weeks after birth of foal. Horses and ponies over eight (8) months of age should be routinely dosed every six (6) weeks.
Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism. Not for use in horses intended for food. Keep out of the reach of children. It is recommended that severely debilitated animals not be treated with this preparation.
