This page contains the Dosage Chart for Dogs and Puppies for the 50 mg/mL Pyrantel Pamoate by Columbia Factories. 

READ THIS FIRST – IMPORTANT: 

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

DOSAGE CHART NOT FOR NEMEX 2

DOSAGE CHART BELOW IS NOT 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 SKIM WHEN IT COMES TO MEDICATIONS! 

This 16 ounce bottle of Pyrantel Pamoate is by Columbia Laboratories and contains a higher concentration of Pyrantel Pamoate per mL then most brands labeled and marketed for dogs, it is the same medication just a smaller amount is needed to treat your litters of puppies or adults dogs for Roundworms and Hookworms.

What is the Dosage Chart For Nemex 2 Then?

The more commonly used dosage for brands like Nemex 2 or Durvet 2x or Strong T (4.54 mg per mL)  has a different dosage then the chart below,  the dosage for Nemex 2 is 1 teaspoon or 5 ml’s per 10 lbs of body weight so a 5 lb. dog would get 2½ cc (mL).

About Pyrantel Pamoate Suspension:

Pyrantel Pamoate Suspension (other common brand names like Strongid® T,  Durvet 2x and Nemex 2) is a limited spectrum wormer that removes and controls – Roundworms and Hookworms only.

FOR PUPPY, ADULT DOGS,  SAFE FOR PREGNANT/ LACTATING FEMALE DOGS

TREATS:  ROUNDWORMS, HOOKWORMS

ACTIVE AGENT:  PYRANTEL PAMOATE SUSPENSION- 50 mg./ml

*Pyrantel Pamoate does NOT treat Taenia Tapeworms or whipworms. 

How Often Do You Need To Worm Puppies?

Current recommendations from the CDC and the American Association of Veterinary Parasitologists are to provide deworming medications against roundworms and hookworms at 2 weeks of age, repeating the dewormer every 2 weeks until the pups are 2 months old. Ideally, treat monthly from 2 months to 6 months of age to eliminate different developing stages of the intestinal parasites. The life stage of most intestinal worms is 3 wks.

DOSING FORMULA
Pyrantel Pamoate Base 50 mg./ml Calculation: 
PUPPY DOSE =/< 5.0 LBS. 4.55 mg. * weight (lbs.) = Dosage mg./50 = Dosage ml
PUPPY DOSE > 5.0 LBS. 2.27 mg. * weight (lbs.) = Dosage mg./50 = Dosage ml
ADULT DOSE 2.27 mg. * weight (lbs.) = Dosage mg./50 = Dosage ml

SIZE DOSAGE SYRINGE TO USE:

  • Use a 1 ml/cc syringe for Puppies
  • Use a 3 ml/cc for dogs over 22 lbs
  • Use a 5 ml/cc syringe for dogs over 67 lbs
  • 1mL also equals 1cc

Please be sure to use a needle free syringe,  I know I seem to state the obvious sometimes but you’d be surprised by some of the questions I’ve recieved in regards to this page. 👀

😳 So… Please do NOT try to use a vaccine syringe to dose your dog or puppy orally – without removing the needle first. 👍

Why Use This Brand of Pyrantel Pamoate?

Pyrantel Pamoate Suspension 50 mg 16 oz bottle by Columbia Laboratories

The 32 oz bottle by Columbia Labs Pyrantel Pamoate is simply just a MUCH MORE COST EFFECTIVE solution when deworming multiple dogs or litters of puppies in comparison to buying several tiny 2 oz bottles of Nemex 2 or even 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) that cost you anywhere from $5 to $10 dollars per pack. 

The 32 oz 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 packs.

It would cost you between $525 to $1050 depending on the brand you purchase to get the same amount of pyrantel pamoate with those 2 tablet packs that you can get with a 32 oz bottle of Columbia Laboratories for $20-$30 per bottle. Check prices on Amazon.

Available in 16 oz and 32 oz bottles.

What Wormer do you use for Adult Dogs and Puppies after 6 wks old? 

Blue Merle Female Multigen Australian Labradoodle - Bella“Safeguard for Goats” is the dewormer I choose to use for our puppies starting at 6 wks and again at 8, 10, 12 wks old and with all our adults every 3-6 months and 10 days before our pregnant female dogs are due to whelp a litter of puppies.

We use the Pyrantel Pamoate at 2 and 4 wks old but then switch to Safeguard for Goats (Fenbendazole) at 6 weeks because it kills all 4 types of intestinal worms including round worm, whipworms, tape worms and hookworms but even more importantly it treats Giardia.

Keeping My Dogs Giardia and Worm Free! 

MULTIGEN LABRADOODLE PARTI PUPPIES PARTI WHITE BLACK PUPPIES-

If one of our breeding dogs has picked up Giardia while out and about they still may not show any Giardia symptoms (which is super common in healthy adult dogs) so by treating all our dogs with Safeguard every 3-6 months and 10 days before any of them whelp a litter,  I’ve been able to keep Giardia out of our yard and out of our litters for a long time now by attempting to catching it early in our adults. 

Giardia while very common in dogs it usually has very little effect on adult dogs but it can still be dangerous in young puppies..  and at the very least a nightmare to deal with.

Safeguard labeled for cows and goats but I use it for our Puppies and Dogs

Safeguard For Goats

Since Fenbedazole (Safeguard) is not recommended for puppies under 6 wks. 

We use the Pyrantel at 2 & 4 weeks and then switch to the Safeguard (Fenbendazole) at 6, 8, 10, 12 wks. 

Visit our page on how to use “Safeguard for Goats” with multiple dogs and/or litters of puppies!  

Using Safeguard for goats instead of Safeguard labeled for dogs.. is just another economical solution for 🐛 worming multiple dogs and/or litters of puppies while still using the same quality medication for less money,  and the only difference is..  you need to use a different dosage chart then listed on the bottle… Not a hard choice there!

What Parasites Are Most Common In Puppies?

So, in puppies, the greatest concern is infection with roundworms and hookworms because they are very common and cause serious illness. Tapeworms and whipworms, while sometimes found as frequently or more often, don’t cause as serious of disease in puppies.

Some parasites are spread to puppies through their mother via the placenta or through mother’s milk — roundworms are a key example of this. The following table gives you an idea of how common these parasites are:

Do Puppies Get Sick after Deworming them? 

For the most part, the major classes of anti-parasite drugs have a very high margin of safety, meaning that giving too much will rarely cause problems. That being said, always follow your veterinarian’s recommendations for deworming.

Puppies with a large number of parasites (high worm burden) may become ill after treatment. Imagine all of the parasites in the intestines all dying at once, the lining of the intestines become inflamed, causing diarrhea, vomiting and lack of appetite. This is usually a self-limiting problem, and puppies are back to normal within a day or so.

I Just Have One Adult Dog To Worm..Which Dewomer Should I Use?

My daughter and English Goldendoodle Baby on the Trampoline at night...

If you just have one or two adult dogs or maybe just one puppy (over 6 wks old) then I use Safe-Guard granules instead of Pyrantel Pamoate. Safeguard treats all 4 of the most common intestinal worms found in dogs and it’s also the most effective treatment for Giardia. 

Safeguard for Goats for Dogs and Puppies Dosage Chart

Per our vets recommendation,  I treat all our dogs as well as our pregnant dogs with “Safe-Guard for Goats” suspension, every 3-6 months and also 10 days before one of our Moms is due to whelp a litter of puppies – as a safety protocol against worms and giardia. 

You can purchase a box of Safe-guard granules on Amazon or over the counter at your local pet store. 

Each box of Safe-Guard granules contains a 3 day treatment for 1 dog.  One packet per day,  sprinkled on their food for 3 days.
