Strongid P Paste for horses contains pyrantel embonate pyrantel, a wormer effective against adult large and small redworms, ascarids, pinworms and at a double dose,  tapeworms exp.06-2021

Strongid P Paste for horses contains pyrantel embonate pyrantel, a wormer effective against adult large and small redworms, ascarids, pinworms and at a double dose, tapeworms. It does not kill worm eggs, larvae, lungworms or bots. Tapeworms are carried by forage mites which eat the tapeworm eggs and are swallowed in turn by the grazing horses. The tapeworm dose is TWICE that is needed for other worms ie two syringes for an average horse. It may be given twice a year at beginning and end of the grazing season. Normal roundworm dosage needs to be repeated every 4 -6 weeks. One tube will treat 600kg but two tubes are needed to treat for tapeworm.

Strongid-P Paste is well tolerated and is safe to give to horses and donkeys, including young foals of over four weeks of age and pregnant mares and stallions, provided the recommendations are followed.

 Contra-indications, warnings, etc

  • Not for use in horses with known hypersensitivity to the active ingredient.
  • Only for direct oral administration.
  • The same oral dose should only be used to dose two animals if they are both healthy and are either running together, or are on the same premises and in direct contact with each other.
  • Avoid contact with the skin. Wash hands and any other parts of the body which come into contact with the product.
  • To be used for animal treatment only
  • Keep out of the reach of children
  • Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy:
  • Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time.
  • Underdosing, which may be due to underestimation of bodyweight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of the dosing device (if any).

Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintics belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.
Resistance to pyrantel has been reported in cyathostomes in horses in a number of countries, including the EU. Therefore the use of this product should be based on a local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.

Uses
Strongid-P Paste is a safe, effective, well accepted and easily administered broad-spectrum anthelmintic, which is indicated for use in the horse and donkey for the control and treatment of adult infections of large and small strongyles, Oxyuris, Parascaris and Anoplocephala perfoliata.
Strongid-P Paste is effective against benzimidazole resistant strains of small strongyles and should be used wherever the presence of such strains is suspected



Pyrantel embonate is the recognised UK name for the active principle in Strongid-P Paste and is synonymous with pyrantel palmoate.

Pyrantel embonate is also available as Strongid-P Granules which is recommended for feed, or stomach-tube administration.

Dispose of any unused product and empty containers in accordance with guidance from your local waste regulation authority.

Instructions

Dosage and administration

Administration

Strongid-P Paste is recommended for direct oral administration in horses, ponies and foals of over four weeks of age and donkeys. It is not necessary to withhold any feed prior to administration. The following method of administration is recommended:

1.Position the locking ring over the appropriate mark on the plunger.

2.Remove the cap from the nozzle.

3.The paste is best deposited on the upper surface (dorsum) of the tongue. Introduce the nozzle end of the syringe at the corner of the mouth (labial commissure). Direct the syringe backwards and depress the plunger to deposit the paste onto the tongue. Providing the paste is given in this way it is unlikely that any rejection will occur. Raising of the horse's head by a hand under the chin sometimes assists in the swallowing process.

For the control and treatment of strongyles including benzimidazole resistant strains (redworm), Oxyuris (seatworm/pinworm) and Parascaris (roundworm).

Strongid-P should be used at a dose rate of 19 mg pyrantel embonate per kg bodyweight.

Dosing programmes
Strongyles (including benzimidazole resistant strains), Oxyuris and Parascaris.

Foals - one to eight months of age
Dose every four weeks.

Horses and donkeys over eight months of age
Routinely dose every six to eight weeks, but during the summer and autumn when at grass dose every four to six weeks.
Always dose three to four days before turning out after in-wintering.

Suckler mares
It has been shown that reduction of strongyle challenge to the suckling foal at pasture can be achieved by using clean pasture (re-seeded or not grazed the previous year by horses), dosing the mare three to four days before turning out and then at intervals of two to four weeks until the end of autumn.

Ideally mares with foals should go out to `clean' pasture or, if this is not possible, delay turning them out until June.

Dosage
For the control and treatment of Anoplocephala perfoliata: (tapeworm). Strongid-P should be used at a dose rate of 38mg pyrantel embonate per kg bodyweight, that is twice the dose rate for strongyles.

Dosing programme – Anoplocephala perfoliata
The need for retreatment may vary, but if considered necessary should be carried out after an interval of six weeks.
