View Full Version : Spin-off: Strongid C 2X- Bad for dogs?

Nov. 20, 2009, 10:31 AM
So until a recent thread, I had no idea the Ivermectin horse wormer could be so toxic to dogs.

Now I'm wondering about the Strongid C 2X horse wormer I feed every day. My dog likes to help me by cleaning up any stray feed that gets spilled, and he may pick up a couple of random Strongid pellets in the process.

Does anyone know if the Strongid can be as dangerous for dogs as the Ivermectin wormer?

TIA! :)

No worries. Daily Strongid is pyrantel tartrate, which has a wide margin of safety in (AFAIK) all species. Unlike ivermectin, it is not absorbed systemically, meaning the drug pretty much stays in the GI tract.
