Nemex-2 Suspension (pyrantel pamoate) is a highly palatable Canine Anthelmintic Suspension intended as a single
treatment for the removal of large roundworms (Toxocara
canis and Toxascaris leonina) and
hookworms (Anclyostoma caninum and
Uncinaria stenocephala) in dogs and puppies. The presence of these
parasites should be confirmed by laboratory fecal exam. Consult your
veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of
Nemex-2 Suspension may also be used to prevent
reinfestation of T. canis in puppies and adult
dogs and in lactating bitches after whelping.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Administer 1
teaspoon (5 mL) for each 10 lb of body weight. It is not necessary to
withhold food prior to or after treatment. Dogs usually find this
dewormer very palatable and will lick the dose from the bowl willingly.
If there is reluctance to accept the dose, mix in a small quantity of
dog food to encourage consumption. It is recommended that dogs
maintained under conditions of constant exposure to worm infestation
should have a follow-up fecal exam within 2-4 weeks after treatment.
For maximum control and prevention of reinfestation, it
is recommended that puppies be treated at 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 10 weeks of
age. Lactating bitches should be treated 2-3 weeks after whelping. Adult
dogs kept in heavily contaminated quarters may be treated at monthly
intervals to prevent T. canis reinfestation.
Nemex-2 is a suspension of pyrantel pamoate in a
palatable caramel-flavored vehicle. Each mL contains 4.54 mg of pyrantel
base as pyrantel pamoate.

SAFETY AND EFFICACY: Critical (worm
count) studies in dogs demonstrated that Nemex-2 at the recommended
dosage is highly efficacious against T. leonina
(99%), T. canis (85%), A.
caninum (97%), and U. stenocephala (94%).
One of the most significant features of Nemex-2 is its
wide margin of therapeutic safety in dogs. The acute oral LD50
of pyrantel pamoate administered in gelatin capsules to female and male
dogs is greater than 314 mg base per lb of body weight, which indicates
a therapeutic index in excess of 138 times the recommended dosage. In
subacute and chronic studies, no significant morphological abnormalities
could be attributed to Nemex-2 when administered to dogs at daily dose
rates of up to 94 mg base per lb of body weight (40x) for periods of 19,
30, and 90 days. Clinical studies conducted in a wide variety of
geographic locations using more than 40 different breeds of dogs showed
no drug-induced toxic effects. Included in these studies were nursing
pups, weaned pups, adults, pregnant bitches, and males at stud.
Additional data have demonstrated the safe use of Nemex-2 in dogs having
heartworm infestations and/or receiving medication for heartworms, dogs
exposed to organophosphate flea collars or flea/tick dip treatments, and
dogs undergoing concurrent treatment or medication at the time of
worming such as immunization and antibacterial treatment.
