Instructions

The prescribed amount of Pyratape P is deposited on the tongue of the animal and the animal allowed to swallow.

Pyratape P should be used at a dose rate of 19 mg pyrantel embonate per kg bodyweight. The dosing programmes are as follows:

a) Foals (1-8 months of age): dose every 4 weeks.

b) Horses (over 8 months of age): dose every 6-8 weeks, but during the summer and autumn when at grass dose every 4-6 weeks. Always dose 3-4 days before turning out after in wintering.

c) Suckler mares: It has been shown that reduction of strongyle challenge to the suckling foal at pasture can be achieved by using clean pasture (re-seeded or not grazed the previous year by horses), dosing the mare 3-4 days before turning out and then at intervals of 2-4 weeks until the end of Autumn. Ideally mares with foals should go out to ‘clean’ pasture or, if this is not possible, delay turning them out until June.

The prescribed amount of Pyratape P is deposited on the tongue of the animal and the animal allowed to swallow. The complete content of one syringe contains 11.4g pyrantel embonate (6 graduated doses of 1.9g) in 28.5g paste and is sufficient for the treatment of 600kg bodyweight. Each graduation of the syringe is sufficient for the treatment of 100kg body-weight.

Control and treatment of Anoplocephala (Tapeworm):

Pyratape P should be used at a dose rate of 38mg pyrantel embonate per kg bodyweight (i.e. twice the dose used for stronglyes). The need for re-treatment may vary, but if considered necessary, should be carried out after an interval of 6 weeks.

To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked.
