Human exposure should, therefore, be minimized by observing the general industry standards for occupational health and safety.
Precautions such as the following should be considered: dust masks or respirators and protective clothing should be worn; dust-arresting equipment and adequate ventilation should be utilized; personal hygiene should be observed; wash before eating or leaving a work site; be alert for signs of allergic reactions—seek prompt medical treatment if such reactions are suspected.

Mixing and Use Directions

Strongid 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/lb (2.64 mg/kg) of body weight daily. The duration of administration is for the period during which the horse is at risk of exposure to internal parasites.

Foals may be treated at such time when consistent intake of grain mix is occurring. This is generally between 2 and 3 months of age.

Strongid may be used in mares at any stage of pregnancy or lactation. Stallion fertility is not affected by the use of Strongid.
