Strongid-P Paste is a smooth, pale yellow to buff paste, containing 43.9% w/w pyrantel embonate and presented in a disposable plastic syringe/oral doser.
Each oral doser contains 11.40 g pyrantel embonate in 26.00 g paste.
 
Strongid-P Paste is a broad-spectrum anthelmintic, which is indicated for use in the horse, pony, donkey and foal over four weeks of age, 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.
 
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.
Dosage
For the control and treatment of strongyles (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, 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.
To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked.
