STRONGID C 2X daily.

For visible benefits. Your horse looks

and feels its best when parasites are kept under control. It’s no wonder: internal parasites are like thieves that return again and again. They steal nutrition, energy and good health from your horse. Left unchecked, parasites can impair growth and performance and may be a cause of colic. You’ll notice the change fairly quickly. When parasite damage is controlled, the benefits are often visible. Many owners report an improvement in appearance and condition within weeks after feeding their horse daily with STRONGID® C 2X (pyrantel tartrate).

There’s a big difference between purge and daily deworming. Treating a horse every 60 days with conventional dewormers (like pastes or gels) removes only some of those parasite stages that are present at the time of treatment. When the dewormer clears the horse’s system in 24 to 48 hours, parasites can regain a foothold. Daily deworming breaks the parasite life cycle, preventing reinfection and costly tissue damage.

live inside your horse—they’re found in grass, hay, dirt and barns. In fact, 90% of parasites come from the environment your horse is exposed to daily. Even with no outward signs, migrating parasites can damage vital organs and rob a horse of its health.

Roundworms:

Larvae migrate through liver and lungs. Since lungs do not regenerate, infestation can limit lung development in foals. Lung damage may also impair adult performance.

Strongid® C/C 2X Parasite Prevention Program risk of parasite reinfection

Infiltrate and damage the intestinal wall, decreasing nutrient absorption. Small strongyles or cyathostomes, are the most common internal parasite to affect your horse. Horses get these parasites by ingesting larvae while grazing pasture that have been contaminated by small strongyle eggs.

Feeding your horse daily with STRONGID® C or C 2X, along with a schedule that includes QUEST® or QUEST® Plus Gel, controls the most dangerous parasites, including encysted strongyles, pinworms, ascarids, bots, tapeworms and more.

STRONGID C 2X won’t let reinfection slow you down. Why give parasites the opportunity to reestablish themselves? When you deworm daily with STRONGID C 2X instead of several times a year, you keep larvae from developing into adults that can lay thousands of eggs daily. By preventing the migration of larvae through your horse’s vital organs, you aid in preventing:

• New parasites from developing (adults lay several thousand eggs a day) • Decreased food absorption • Recontaminated pastures • Irreversible lung damage

Daily deworming: How’s it done? Treat with a full dose of QUEST or QUEST Plus Gel. • Single dose • Easy to administer • Quick dissolving Step 2

Immediately, begin daily treatment of STRONGID C 2X after deworming with Quest or QUEST Plus. Continue feeding daily. Work with your veterinarian for use of STRONGID C 2X to determine duration and frequency based on your unique situation. • Easy, top dressed on feed daily • Can also be mixed into feedstuff Step 3

Continue schedule by repeating steps 1 and 2.

QUEST or QUEST PLUS should not be used in other animal species, as severe reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may result. Extreme caution should be used when administering to foals under 6 months of age, young or miniature horses, as overdosage may result in serious adverse reactions. Accurate weight should be calculated before using in miniature horses or small ponies. Do not use in sick, debilitated or underweight animals.

Mixing and Feeding Directions Strongid® C (pyrantel tartrate) or Strongid® C 2X

(pyrantel tartrate) 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: — 1 oz of Strongid C per 250 lb of body weight. (A Strongid C measuring cup is enclosed.) — 0.5 oz of Strongid C 2X per 250 lb of body weight. (A Strongid C 2X measuring cup is enclosed. Please note: the measuring cup is different in size and shape from the original Strongid C measuring cup due to the higher concentration of Strongid C 2X .) Foals may be administered Strongid C or StroNgid C 2X as soon as consistent intake of grain mix is occurring. This is generally between two to three months of age. Strongid C or Strongid C 2X may be used in mares

at any stage of pregnancy or lactation. Stallion fertility is not affected by the use of Strongid C or Strongid C 2X . WEIGHT
