STRONGID P GRANULES - HORSE WORMER
Strongid P Contain pyrantel effective against adult large and small redworms, ascarids, pinworms and at a double dose, some tapeworms. It does not kill worm eggs, larvae, lungworms or bots. Tapeworms are carried by forage mites which eat the tapeworm eggs and are swallowed in turn by the grazing horses. The tapeworm dose is TWICE that needed for other worms ie four sachets for an average horse and may be given twice a year at beginning and end of the grazing season. Normal roundworm dosage needs to be repeated every 4 - 6 weeks. Remember two sachets of Strongid P Granules are equivalent to one tube of paste so that a ‘roundworm dose’ is two sachets for the average horse and ‘tapeworm double dose’ is four sachets.
