Mixing And Feeding Directions

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 lb 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.

Do not underdose. Ensure each animal receives a complete dose based on a current body weight. Underdosing may result in ineffective treatment, and encourage the development of parasite resistance.

Strongid C 2X Caution

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.

Warning

Not for use in horses intended for human consumption.

Other Warnings: Parasite resistance may develop to any dewormer, and has been reported for most classes of dewormers. Treatment with a dewormer used in conjunction with parasite management practices appropriate to the geographic area and the animal(s) to be treated may slow the development of parasite resistance. Fecal examinations or other diagnostic tests and parasite management history should be used to determine if the product is appropriate for the herd prior to the use of any dewormer. Following the use of any dewormer, effectiveness of treatment should be monitored (for example, with the use of a fecal egg count reduction test or another appropriate method). A decrease in a drug’s effectiveness over time as calculated by fecal egg count reduction tests may indicate the development of resistance to the dewormer administered. Your parasite management plan should be adjusted accordingly based on regular monitoring.
