Worm Protector 2X is a suspension of pyrantel pamoate in a palatable butterscotch-flavored vehicle. Each mL contains 4.54 mg of pyrantel base as pyrantel pamoate.
INDICATIONS FOR USE: Worm Protector 2X suspension is a highly palatable formulation intended as a single treatment for the removal of large roundworms (Toxocara Canis and Toxascaris leonina) and hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum and Uncinaria stenocephala) in dogs and puppies.
Worm Protector 2X suspension may also be used to prevent reinfestation of Toxocara Canis in puppies and adult dogs and in lactating bitches after whelping. Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION: Administer one full teaspoon (5mL) for every 10 pounds of body weight (2.27 mg base per lb. of body weight). Although most dogs have been observed to find this formulation very palatable and willingly consume it undiluted, it may be necessary to mix a small quantity of formulation in the dog’s normal ration to encourage consumption. Fasting prior to or after treatment is not necessary.
For maximum control and prevention of reinfestation, it is recommended that puppies be treated at 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 10 weeks of age. Lactating bitches should be treated 2-3 weeks after whelping. Adult dogs kept in heavily contaminated quarters may be treated at monthly intervals to prevent T. canis reinfestation.
EFFICACY: Critical (worm count) studies in dogs demonstrated that pyrantel pamoate at the recommended dosage is highly efficacious against T. leonina (99%), T. canis (85%), A. caninum (97%) and U. stenocephala (94%).
