Pyrantel Pamoate is used in horses for the removal and control of mature infections of large strongyles; pinworms; large roundworms; and small strongyles in horses and ponies. Pyrantel Pamoate is a suspension and it comes in a palatable vanilla-flavored form. Each mL contains 50 mg of pyrantel base as pyrantel pamoate.
It should be administer 3 mg pyrantel base per pound of body weight. For maximum control of parasitism, it is recommended that foals in between 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 re-treatment 10 days to 2 weeks after birth of foal. Horses over 8 months of age should be routinely dosed every 6 weeks.
It may be administered by means of a dose syringe or by mixing into the feed. If you decide to ise the dose syringe you would have to draw the appropriate dosage of Liqui-Care P into a dose syringe and administer to the animal. Do not expose Liqui-Care P to direct sunlight. If you decide to mix it in the feed you would need to mix the appropriate dosage of Pyrantel Pamoate in the normal grain ration. Fasting of animals prior to or following treatment is not required.
