Directions For Use
Pyrantel Pamoate Equine may be administered by means of a stomach tube, dose syringe or by mixing into the feed. Administer 3 mg pyrantel base per pound of body weight (6 mL Pyrantel Pamoate Equine per 100 lb body weight). It is recommended that severely debilitated animals not be treated with this preparation. For maximum control of parasitism, it is recommended that foals (2-8 months of age) be dosed every 4 weeks. To minimize potential hazard that the mare may pose to the foal, she should be treated 1 month prior to anticipated foaling date followed by retreatment 10 days to 2 weeks after birth of foal. Horses over 8 months of age should be routinely dosed every 6 weeks.
Stomach Tube - Measure the appropriate dosage of Pyrantel Pamoate Equine and mix in the desired quantity of water. Protect drench from direct sunlight and administer to the animal immediately following mixing. Do not attempt to store diluted suspension. Pyrantel Pamoate Equine is inactive against the common horse bot (Gastrophilus spp). However, Pyrantel Pamoate Equine may be administered concurrently with carbon disulfide observing the usual precautions with carbon disulfide.
Dose Syringe - Draw the appropriate dosage of Pyrantel Pamoate Equine into a dose syringe and administer to the animal. Do not expose Pyrantel Pamoate Equine to direct sunlight.
Feed - Mix the appropriate dosage of Pyrantel Pamoate Equine in the normal grain ration. Fasting of animals prior to or following treatment is not required.
StorageStore at room temperature between 15°-30°C (59°-86°F). Keep container tightly closed when not in use.

SAFETY AND EFFICACY: Pyrantel Pamoate Equine is well tolerated by horses and ponies of all ages.

The reproductive performance of pregnant mares and stud horses dosed with pyrantel pamoate suspension has not been affected. Critical (worm-count) studies in horses demonstrated that pyrantel pamoate suspension administered at the recommended dosage was efficacious against mature infections of Strongylus vulgaris (>90%), S. edentatus (69%), S. equinus (>90%), Oxyuris equi (81%), Parascaris equorum (>90%), and small strongyles (>90%).
