Mixing and Feeding Directions:
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 lb. of body weight daily.

Strongid® C 2X should be administered for the entire period that the animal is at risk to internal parasites. Unprotected animals that have grazed may already have an established S. vulgaris larval infestation. Before administering Strongid® C 2X , these animals should be treated with a therapeutic dose of a larvicidal product. Foals may be administered Strongid® C 2X as soon as consistent intake of grain mix is occurring. This is generally between 2–3 months of age. 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 2X.

Why did you choose this?
If I purchase the 50 lb of Strongid, why is there a shipping charge when you are offering free shipping?
Best Answer: The shipping charge will depend on your location.
When you give a one time (gel or paste) dewormer do you stop the Strongid C 2X feed through? IF so for how long? Just that day or longer?
Best Answer: You generally use one or the other but not both. If you need a paste wormer for bots or some worms not covered by the Strongid C 2X, I would stop the daily dose for a week then give the paste and go back on the daily dose a week later if you need a daily dose. Only horses on a grass pasture or that eat manure getting them reinfected should need the daily dose.
do you need to take the horse off Strongid Ctx for a month per year and give them Quest + ?
Best Answer: I have used the C2X for more than 15 years and I have never taken then off of it, or used any different wormer. I have never had a colic, nor have my horses ever had any sign of worms, even with a fecal check. I do have them on my own pasture and have no horses coming and going. I highly recommend the product. I would however use the advise of your veterinarian.
If I have 3 horse all around 1200 lbs. How much of this do I need for a 30 day worming?
Best Answer: I have used this product for many years for my 3 horses that also weigh the same as your 3. I go through 10 pounds a month. Well worth the price for peace of mind. Hope this helped you. Pam

Can you feed Strongid C twice a day, half the dose in each feeding?
Best Answer: I have never considered feeding it any way other than the way the directions indicate. I think since the dosage is based on the weight of the horse, it should be fed per the direction. I wish I was more help, sorry. I think I would contact the manufacturer and ask them.
If feeding 2 ounces per day how many days will a 10 lb container last?
Best Answer: 10 lbs is 160 ounces. I do know that it is a great product! My horse is a bay and she shines like a copper penny and is dappled. It seems to last a long time. I buy it by the 50lb bag!
