Dosage and Administration

The dosage of oxibendazole for the horse is 10 mg/kg of body weight (15 mg/kg for strongyloides). Each mL of suspension contains 100 mg of oxibendazole. Administer by stomach tube in 3-4 pints of warm water, or if preferred, by top dressing or mixing into a portion of the normal grain ration. Prepare individual doses to assure that each animal receives the correct amount. Horses maintained on premises where reinfection is likely to occur should be retreated in 6-8 weeks.
