Withdrawal Time for Pyrantel Pamoate

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

i give up.  i've searched all over the internet.  My vet prescribed several different medications for an infestation of lice and worms and cocci, which i have already administered.  i could find withdrawal times on the others, but not for the Pyrantel Pamoate.  It is marketed by Vedco under the name Equi-Phar ProTal.  It appears to be a horse dewormer.

i probably should have searched for withdrawal times BEFORE giving the meds.  But i trusted she knew what she was doing.  Now my fear is that i've given my hens something that will keep us from eating their eggs for a very long time, if ever.

Does anyone have any information on this?  i would greatly appreciate any personal experience with the medication, and what you chose as the appropriate withdrawal time for you.  Also, if anyone has information on a better dewormer to use in the future, i would greatly appreciate it.

I
would call the manufcturer for info. When you say withdrawel do you mean "when" you can eat eggs and or the meat?

Thank you for the link.  i will go read that now.  By withdrawal time i mean to eat the eggs.

Edited to add:  i just read that link.  i did find that info on the net, but it only mentions horses.  i could not find anything about chickens.  i guess i need to write to the manufacturer.

Hi,

  Isn't Pyrantel Pamoate the same thing that is in many of the dog wormers?  If so, can this be used or does it need to be the one specific for horses?  What strength should I be looking for?
