It is recommended that foals 2-8 months of age be dosed every 4 weeks. Mares should be treated 1 month prior to anticipated foaling date and re-treated 10 days to 2 weeks after birth of the foal. Horses and ponies over 8 months of age should be routinely dosed every 6 weeks.
After removing the cap, the paste should be deposited on the dorsum of the tongue. Introduce the nozzle end of the syringe at the corner of the mouth. 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's head sometimes assists in the swallowing process. If only part of the paste has been used, replace the cap on the syringe nozzle.
Each ml contains 180 mg pyrantel base as pyrantel pamoate.
