Has anyone ever used the Strongid Paste (pyrantel pamote) Wormer for horses to worm your dogs. If so what is the break down to administer correct dosage for dogs?  I am considering to try it, but was wondering the advice of someone that did use it before I try it.

Thanks in advance.

OK so I guess no one uses this type of wormer. I did research it and did find some info and positive feedback on it.  Think I will try it.  

SaddenSad Smile to see to no one responded. Was hoping at least one person had used it and was willing to share their experience and results with it.

I have used it but I use the liquid formulation.  Fenbenzadole is the better wormer and you can rotate to it or use it as your only wormer.  Fenbenzadole takes 3 to 5 doses to get everything including whip worms.  You must calculate the dosage based on the formulation and use a small scale or accurate volume meaasure such as a pippette.

have never used pyrantel past the puppy stage, I know this doesn't help, I just didn't want you to feel rejected.Clever

I use Zimmectin Gold which is also a horse wormer and have found that to be very effective.
I dose about the 100lb mark for my adult German Shepherds.
I know a woman that uses this type for her Huskies and likes it.
There are some Horse wormers that will kill your dogs also. I tried qwest once, NEVER again.
I will stick with Ivermectin, I know it works and no side effects. Plus it does tapeworm and if used monthly, works for heartworm prevdntion.

Fenbenzadole is my go to wormer and it is sold in liquid form for sheep and cattle.  It is expensive but it is very safe and very effective.  Pyrantel pamoate is sold in liquid form for horses.  I mix the liquids with raw chicken livers in a blender and the dogs eat them with no problems poured over their food.  I prefer the liquid formulation wormers because they can be shaken to insure they are well mixed.  Depending on the amount needed you can do serial dilutions if your measuring equipment is not accurate enough to measure the small amounts sometimes needed.  I have a simple rule about which wormers, vaccines, etc. to buy and that is if Fort Dodge makes it or markets it then I don't buy it.  Their vaccines are cheap and more likely to cause problems and Fort Dodge apparently has no problem with sickening your dog to make a profit.  The moxidectin injectable Fort Dodge sold for heartworm is a perfect example of what greedy bastards they are as it was all marketing and no science.  It made a lot of dogs sick and killed a few before they pulled it from the market and to this day they claim it was perfectly safe and in some cases have tried to reintroduce it.  I only use invermectin at the ultra low rates used for heartworms.  Most of the horse products have much higher ratios of invermectin than necessary for heartworm control.

My vet GIVES me liquid strongid when ever I ask.
1cc per 10lb. 3 days in a row.

This is kinda OT from the actual post.....since most "other animal" wormers work for dogs then why not market for them instead of making the owner go to the vet? Such a rip off. When I grew up, the vet was the absolutely last option. Now the way vets are marketed here in the states, the vet is the first and only option! Wish more owners would educate themselves instead of falling into the money trap.

My bad .. Fenbendazole ( active ingredient in Panacur ) not fenbezadole as I wrote earlier.  It is about $1.25 or less a gram active in 1000 ml quantity for cattle, a lot more expensive for dogs in the dry formulations sold for dogs and puppies.

I've used it, and know a few others who have. On GSD pups, just a dab on fingertip.
Squeeze entire tube into dish and mix well.
About the size of a q-tip end to each pup. Seal and store the rest.    Hope this helps. Take care
