For at least 20 years before vets finally acknowledged that horse get tapeworms I used this product to rescue chronic "poor keepers". I have tried all the new products and they do not hold a candle to Strongid Paste. Give at least double, up to triple, the standard dose one time and watch for results in just a few days. Sure symptom of "tapes" is a horse who actually looks worse a week after being dewormed with other products. I even rehabilitated a mare here for breeding who was on the daily Strongid pellets. It is the large, one time dose, that does the trick.
we have used this product as part of our deworming rotation for over 30 years... no problems. Check out the life cycle of the worm, and you might find the result is the worms are being passed from the mother to the foal, and therefore need more advanced care.
To JT, Whitewood,SD, I have been using this product per the Vet's instructions for foals under 6 mos of age. I had a filly get sick because I was giving my foals ivermectin and it doesn't kill the worms in young stock. Good for you to stand up for what you know is RIGHT ! jb
"Was told product compares to sugar cubes!"
"I was buying this product at a local feed store and the cashier told me this product was ""useless"" and I ""might as well give my horse sugar cubes (instead of this wormer) and save myself some money""!!! Considering I had not asked for her opinion I was a bit offended. I spoke to the manager and he apologized. I have used this wormer (in rotation) for 10+ years and never had any reason to think it didn't help between Ivermectin and Fenbenzadole. Anyone else have thoughts?"
