Administration: Strongid-P Paste is recommended for direct oral administration in horses, ponies, donkeys and foals over four weeks of age. It is not necessary to withhold any feed prior to administration, or change normal exercise routines following dosing. The following method of administration is recommended: Position the locking ring over the appropriate mark on the plunger. Remove the cap from the nozzle. The Strongid P Paste is best deposited on the upper surface of the tongue. Introduce the nozzle end of the oral doser at the corner of the mouth. Direct the oral doser 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 helps with swallowing. Store in tightly closed original container. Any product remaining 2 months after opening should be discarded. The same oral doser should only be used to dose two animals if they are both healthy and are either running together, or are in direct contact with each other. Dosage: For the control and treatment of adult infections of large and small redworm, including benzimidazole-resistant strains, the large roundworm and pinworm or seatworm. See dosage table on side of box. Dosage to include the control of tapeworms: To include the control of tapeworm the dose should be doubled. Two treatments per year are recommended; one in July and one in October. Dosing programme: Foals: One to eight months of age, Dose every four weeks. Horses or ponies: Over eight months of age. Routinely dose every six to eight weeks, but during the summer when at grass dose every four to six weeks. Always dose before turning out and when stabling for the winter. Stickler mares: A reduction of redworm challenge to the suckling foal at pasture can be achieved by using clean pasture (reseeded or not grazed the previous year by horses), dosing the mare three to four weeks before turning out and then at monthly intervals until the end of autumn. Ideally mares with foals should go out to clean pasture or, if this is not possible delay turning out until June.
