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 Note: Position screw-gauge over appropriate mark on plunger. Each mL contains 180 mg pyrantel base as pyrantel pamoate.
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 retreatment 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.

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
