Durvet Pyrantel Paste is an excellent solution to gastrointestinal nematode infestations in horses and ponies. The active ingredient is pyrantel pamoate, which is known to be highly effective against parasitic worm infections. It eliminates and controls mature infections of pinworms, large roundworms, and large and small strongyles. This paste comes in an apple-flavored formula that is palatable and easy to administer to horses. It features a cap that may be easily replaced for partial dosages. Safe to use even for pregnant mares a month or less prior to the expected foaling date. This dewormer may also be administered to foals 2 months or older and to nursing mares 10 days after the foaling.
Mature infections of large strongyles, small strongyles, pinworms, and large roundworms.

For maximum control of parasitism, it is recommended that foals (2-8 months of age) be dosed every 4 weeks. To minimize the potential source of infection that the mare may pose to the foal, the mare should be treated 1 month prior to anticipated foaling date followed by re-treatment 10 days to 2 weeks after birth of foal. Horses and ponies over 8 months of age should be routinely dosed every 6 weeks.
It is recommended that severely debilitated animals not be treated with this preparation.
ADMlNlSTRATlON: After removing the cap, the paste should be deposited on the dorsum of the tongue. lntroduce 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. When only part of the paste has been used, replace the cap on the syringe nozzle.
EFFlCACY: Critical (worm count) studies in horses demonstrated that pyrantel pamoate administered at the recommended dosage was efficacious against mature infections of Strongylus vulgaris (>90%), S. edentatus (69%), S. equinus (>90%), Oxyuris equi (81%), Parascaris equorum (>90%), and small strongyles (>90%).
