Control and treatment of Anoplocephala (Tapeworm):
Pyratape P should be used at a dose rate of 38 mg pyrantel embonate per kg bodyweight (i.e. twice the dose used for strongyles). The need for re-treatment may vary, but if considered necessary, should be carried out after an interval of 6 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.

Impaction of the small intestine may occur in foals, infected with high numbers of Parascaris equorum. Symptoms (colic) may be seen as soon as 30 minutes after treatment. Combined administration of pyrantel and levamisole or piperazine is not recommended.
It is safe to give the product to pregnant and lactating mares provided the recommendations are followed.
