Keeping parasite levels under control helps your horse perform at his best. Parasites steal nutrition, energy and good health from your horse. Left unchecked, parasites can cause damage to vital organs, impair growth and performance, and may cause colic.
A daily dose of STRONGID® C 2X helps break the cycle of parasite infection. STRONGID C 2X helps prevent Strongylus vulgaris larval infestations and control adult large strongyles as well as adult and fourth-stage larvae (L4) of small strongyles, pinworms and ascarids.
Certain risk factors may call for daily deworming to help maintain health and peak performance:
Dosing and Administration
The most important tool in your parasite control arsenal is your veterinarian. If your veterinarian determines your horse would benefit from STRONGID C 2X, getting started is easy.
First, if the horse has not been previously dewormed or may have an established a Strongylus vulgaris larval infestation, administer a broad-spectrum purge dewormer such as QUEST® PLUS Gel to treat your horse for existing parasites.* Then begin daily treatment with STRONGID C 2X. Next, work with your veterinarian to determine the ideal duration for daily treatment and frequency of purge deworming necessary based upon your horse’s individual parasite risk factors and unique Individualized Deworming needs.
STRONGID C 2X is to be administered on a continuous basis either as a top dress or mixed in the horse’s daily grain ration at the rate of 1.2 mg pyrantel tartrate per pound of body weight daily. To achieve this dose, administer:
