READ THIS FIRST – IMPORTANT: 

THIS IS NOT THE DOSAGE CHART FOR MOST OVER THE COUNTER BRANDS OF PYRANTEL PAMOATE DEWORMER.

THIS IS NOT THE DOSAGE CHART FOR NEMEX 2 OR DURVET 2X. 

THIS DOSAGE CHART IS FOR A VERY SPECIFIC BOTTLE OF PYRANTEL PAMOATE BY COLUMBIA LABS – WHICH HAS 50 milligrams (mg)  per 1 ML –  INSTEAD OF MOST OVER THE COUNTER BRANDS (LIKE NEMEX 2) WHICH CONTAIN ONLY 4.54 mg OF PYRANTEL PAMOATE PER 1 ML.

✖️ HUGE DIFFERENCE!!

I KNOW PEOPLE WANT TO SKIM INFO QUICK… PLEASE DON’T WHEN IT COMES TO MEDICATIONS! 

The more commonly used dosage for brands like Nemex 2 or Durvet 2x is 5 ml’s per 10 lbs – Nemex 2 + Dosage

THIS IS PAGE IS TO HELP DOG BREEDERS.  I AM NOT THE COMPANY THAT MAKES THIS DEWORMER AND I AM NOT A VET. 

IF YOU HAVE THIS BOTTLE – USE THE DOSAGE CHART BELOW…

Pyrantel Pamoate – 50 mg/mL – by Columbia Labs

DEWORMER – PYRANTEL PAMOATE SUSPENSION

For Puppies: Administer one dose/for only one day every 2 wks starting at 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10 weeks of age. For a puppy at increased risk, also treat at 12 weeks, and then monthly until the puppy is 6 months old. (personally,  I like to switch to Safeguard at 6 and 8 wks because it kills more types of worms and also treats giardia) 

Pyrantel pamoate is used to fight mainly hookworms and roundworms and treats pinworms in humans.

For Adult Dogs: Administer every 3 months or as recommended by your veterinarian. 

Newly Acquired Animals: Worm immediately, repeat in 2 weeks, then follow above recommendations.

PURPOSE: PUPPY, ADULT DOGS,  PREGANT/ LACTATING FEMALES, ANNUAL

TREATS:  ROUNDWORMS, HOOKWORMS

AGENT:  PYRANTEL PAMOATE SUSPENSION- 50 mg./ml

ADMINISTER:  ORAL DOSE – DOGS ONLY
Pyrantel Pamoate Suspension (common name Strongid® T and Nemex 2) is a limited spectrum wormer that removes and controls a variety of canine worms – Roundworms and Hookworms.

PYRANTEL PAMOATE DOSAGE CHART AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR DOGS

Pyrantel Pamoate

PUPPY DOSING:

1 DAY DOSAGE EVERY 2 WKS FOR PUPPIES STARTING AT 2 WEEKS.

USE THE 3rd COLUMN BELOW AS YOUR DOSE…..

FOR EXAMPLE: A 5LB PUPPY WOULD GET – 0.46ths OF 1 ML

SO BASICALLY ALMOST 1/2 OF ONE ML TOTAL. 

  • Note: Puppies UNDER 5 lbs. require a higher dose of Pyrantel than those ABOVE 5 lbs, THAT IS WHY YOU SEE THE DOSAGE GO UP AT THE 5LB MARK AND THEN BACK DOWN AGAIN.

WHY I USE THIS BRAND INSTEAD OF OTHER BRANDS:

 The bottle is 32 oz’s which is a MUCH cheaper solution than buying the tiny 2 oz bottles of Nemex 2 or the monthly treatment packs with 2 chew-able tablets (with 113.5 mg pyrantel pamoate per tablet for a total of 227 mg of pyrantel pamoate per pack) marketed for dogs that will cost you anywhere from $5 to $10 dollars per pack. 

This bottle of Columbia Laboratories Pyrantel Pamoate 50 mg to 1 ml Suspension contains 24,000 mg of pyrantel pamoate, the equivalent of about 105 of those 2 chewable tablet treatment packs.

It would cost you between $525 to $1050 depending on the brand you purchase to get the same amount of doses with those 2 tablet packs that you will get with this 32 oz bottle of Columbia Laboratories for $25-$28 per bottle. Same exact medication. Different dosage chart. 

Columbia Laboratories Pyrantel Pamoate Suspension contains 50 mg/ml Pyrantel Pamoate.

Labeled for the treatment of pinworms in humans but is the same medicine found in the Nemex-2 for dogs BUT at a much lower cost and a different dosage (chart below for dogs/puppies).

This bottle contains a higher concentration of the medication per ML then most pyrantel bottles labeled for dogs so a smaller amount is needed. Treats Roundworms and Hookworms in Dogs.

Please make sure you have the right bottle before using this chart or you may not be giving them enough to deworm them.

The more commonly used Nemex 2 OR Durvet 2x dosage is 5 ml’s per 10 lbs.   (NEMEX 2 CONTAINS 4.58 MG – PER 1 ML of Pyrantel Pamoate) – Nemex 2 + Dosage Chart

OUR DREAMYDOODLES DE-WORMING PROTOCOL

As a dog breeder myself I use the Pyrantel Pamoate at 2 & 4 weeks at which point I switch them to Safe-guard (Fenbendazole) dewormer STARTING AT 6 WKS and we administered Safequard every 2 weeks  until they’re 8 weeks or until they go home. I do this as a Giardia preventative/treatment and also because it takes care of a wider range of parasites.

I dose my Mom dogs and my whole pack 2 weeks before any expected due dates with Safeguard.

Safe-guard dewormer can not be used until puppies are at least 6 weeks old BUT Pyrantel Pamoate CAN BE STARTED when puppies are 2 WKS old.

I also treat my Dams at the same time. This worming protocol covers all your bases and helps us to send home parasite free puppies.

But again, I am not a Vet so please discuss your worming protocol with your vet.

I JUST HAVE ONE ADULT DOG TO WORM.. 

Tuuka - F1 Standard Aussiedoodle from Dreamydoodles.com

If you just have one or two adult dogs or maybe just one puppy (over 6 wks old) then I highly recommend using Safe-Guard granules instead of Pyrental Pamoate.  You can purchase it on Amazon or over the counter at your local pet store. 

Safe-Guard Powder Granule Packets: Includes a 3 day/packet Treatment.  One packet a day in their food for 3 days. Every 3-6 months or as needed. 

Safe-Guard (Fenbendazole) kills more types of intestinal parasites in dogs then Pyrental Pamoate. 

Safe-guard (fenbendazole) Canine Dewormer Packets: (small,  medium or large dogs)
