Pyratape P Horse Wormer

Pyratape, one of our standout offerings, is an effective horse dewormer containing pyrantel. It's highly effective against mature large and small redworms, pinworms, and ascarids, and can combat certain types of tapeworms at a double dosage. However, Pyratape doesn't affect worm eggs, larvae, lungworms, or bots.

Tapeworms Double Dose

Tapeworms, transmitted by forage mites, can lead to colic in horses. To control them, the required Pyratape dosage is twice that of the quantity necessary for other worms, meaning two syringes for an average-sized horse. Currently, we don't offer an alternate granules formulation.

For optimal tapeworm control, it's recommended to administer this doubled dose twice yearly, ideally at the start and end of the grazing season. 

Other Horse Worms

For worms other than tapeworms, the standard dose should be repeated during the grazing season when necessary. A single tube is sufficient to treat a 600 kg horse, but for tapeworm, as stated, two tubes will be necessary.

Adverse Reactions

Pyrantel embonate is safe for horses and ponies of all ages, including sucklings, pregnant mares, and studs. Impaction of the small intestine may occur in foals infected with high numbers of Parascaris equorum. Symptoms (colic) may be seen as soon as 30 minutes after treatment.

Use during Pregnancy or Lactation

Pyratape P is safe to give to pregnant and lactating mares provided the recommendations are followed.



Pyratape is of low toxicity in trials of overdosing, and tests at up to twenty times the usual dose have produced no adverse effects.
