Generic Substitution
Date:August 19, 2012
This product is a basic Pyrantel Pamoate solution, used for treatment of worms in mammals. For cats, it is usually marketed as "Strongid." I order the Equi-Phar by Vedco (which is labeled for horses) b/c it is the same medication & cheaper in this large equine-sized bottle. Interestingly, what I received from Entirely Pets in fulfillment of my most recent Equi-Phar by Vedco order was Columbia Laboratories Pyrantel Pamoate. (Same pyrantel pamoate medication, but produced by a different manufacuter, and in a bottle labled for human consumption.) I was surprised that Entirely Pets made this substitution without checking with me, but not upset. The price was the same; it's the same medication; and I will use it on the cats. But still it's a little weird to get a different bottle than the one pictured and marketed on the website. So--just be forewarned about that if you place an order. As for effectiveness: I've used Pyrantel Pamoate to de-worm outdoor (feral) cats and strays/rescues for years. It works just fine as a broad-spectrum dewormer. (Be warned, though, that it does not treat tapeworms. Just hookworm, pinworm, and roundworm. If your cat has tapes, you'll need special tapeworm medication.)

Great product. But every time I order, your warehouse has a problem with shipping the wrong product. I am still waiting and calling you guys 2 or 3 times a week for the right product to be re shipped.
