A broad spectrum general wormer, Strongid uses the active ingredient Pyrantel Embonate to destroy and control adult large and small Strongyles, Oxyuris. Parascaris and Anoplocephala Perfoliata. Double dose for Tapeworms. Particularly useful on worms with Benzimidazole resistance. Suitable for all equids, including foals over 4 weeks of age. Easy to administer paste.
The presence of worms can be checked in your horse using a Worm Testing Kit.
Strongid-P Paste is a 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 11.41 g pyrantel embonate in 26.00 g paste.
Strongid-P Paste is a broad-spectrum anthelmintic, which is indicated for use in the horse and donkey 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.
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.
For the control and treatment of strongyles including benzimidazole resistant strains (redworm), Oxyuris (seatworm/pinworm) and Parascaris (roundworm).
Strongid-P should be used at a dose rate of 19 mg pyrantel embonate per kg bodyweight.
NB: 1 kg = 2.2 Ib
Up to 150 kg

151 kg to 300 kg

451 kg to 600 kg
Full oral doser

Position locking ring over appropriate mark on plunger.
Strongyles (including benzimidazole resistant strains), Oxyuris and Parascaris.
Dose every four weeks.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Not for use in horses with known hypersensitivity to the active ingredient.
Only for direct oral administration.
The same oral dose should only be used to dose two animals if they are both healthy and are either running together, or are on the same premises and in direct contact with each other.
Avoid contact with the skin. Wash hands and any other parts of the body which come into contact with the product.
To be used for animal treatment only
Keep out of the reach of children
Horse meat: zero days.
Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy:
•Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over an extended period of time.
•Underdosing, which may be due to underestimation of bodyweight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of the dosing device (if any).
Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, alternative anthelmintics belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.
Resistance to pyrantel has been reported in cyathostomes in horses in a number of countries, including the EU. Therefore the use of this product should be based on a local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.
Do not store above 25°C. Store in tightly closed original container.
Protect from direct sunlight.
Any product remaining 2 months after first use of an oral doser should be discarded.
Any unused veterinary medicinal product or waste materials derived from such veterinary medicinal products should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
Each oral doser contains 11.41 g pyrantel embonate in 26.00 g paste.
Strongid-P Paste is well tolerated and is safe to give to horses and donkeys, including young foals of over four weeks of age and pregnant and/or lactating mares, provided the recommendations are followed.
Pyrantel embonate is the recognised UK name for the active principle in Strongid-P Paste and is synonymous with pyrantel pamoate.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Strongid P Horse Wormer, including answers from our team.
How do I worm a lactating mare with a one month old foal with Strongid-P? Do both mare and foal get a dose each or if I give the mare a dose, will the foal receive some through the mare's milk?
You will need to dose the mare and foal separately according to their bodyweight. It is safe to give foals Strongid P from 4 weeks of age.
My horse is suffering with pinworm I have used Strongid p thelast two times as I find this expels them the best last time was a double dose in mid October can I do it again or should I use something else x I really need to try eradicate them they drive her mad xx
A Pyrantel based wormer such as Strongid P or Pyratape P is the best thing to use so you are doing the right thing. I would double dose with either one of these at 2 weekly intervals until you have eradicated the pinworm. Cleaning around her bottom daily will remove eggs laid by the adult worms overnight. You could also speak to your vet about an ivermectin and propylene glycol wash to apply around the bottom also.
Which is the most effective wormer against threadworm?
If you mean the neck threadworm (Onchocerca spp.) then Eqvalan is licensed to treat them and would be the usual choice. It is also theoretically helpful to try and reduce midges biting your horse, as they are responsible for transmitting this parasite. Good fly repellents based on a high concentration of DEET are probably the best. NAF Off DEET Power is a good example.
