Pfizer Animal Health Invites Horse Owners to Show their Strongid(R) C 2X Shine

New York, NY (June 3, 2008) -- The Strongid(R) C 2X Shine contest, from Pfizer Animal Health, offers horse owners the chance to show off their horse’s healthy glow from using Strongid C 2X daily. The process is simple: Owners take a “before” shot of their horse and then begin feeding Strongid C 2X every day to fight parasite infestations. After a few weeks, an “after” photo can be taken and owners get the chance to write a brief essay about the changes they’ve seen in their horse as a result of Strongid C 2X. Owners who already give their horses Strongid C 2X every day can also participate -- they just need to find a snapshot of their horse taken before they started on Strongid C 2X. Entries close October 3, 2008.

Entries will be judged by independent judges on the basis of the essay, proper use of language and the before and after photos. Two grand prize winners will receive a fleece horse cooler, a classic hardwood tack trunk and a year’s supply of Strongid C 2X and Equimax(TM) (ivermectin 1.87%/praziquantel 14.03%). Strongid C 2X baseball caps will be awarded to another 250 second prize winners. Entry information for the contest can be found on the new http://www.StrongidC2X.com website.

“Our customers tell us that they can always spot a Strongid C 2X horse because they have a shine that comes from the inside,” said Kristin Ruff, equine marketing manager at Pfizer Animal Health. “We know that Strongid C 2X helps keep horses healthy, and now we’re giving owners a chance to show off the results!”

Owners who use Strongid C 2X every day could see an improvement in their horse’s condition and appearance shortly. For quickest results, Pfizer Animal Health recommends treating horses with Equimax prior to feeding Strongid C 2X. Twice-yearly use of Equimax helps fight bot and tapeworm infestations and simulates an all-important rotational deworming schedule. Horse owners should always consult their veterinarians before beginning any deworming program.

Unfortunately, the facts are that internal parasites can steal nutrition, energy and good health from horses, around the clock. Left unchecked, they can impair growth and performance, affect reproduction and cause loss of condition or even death.

Many horse owners believe they’re eliminating the problem by deworming every two months, but that only removes some of the parasite stages that are present at the time of treatment. When the dewormer clears the horse’s system a day or two after deworming, parasites can regain a foothold.
