Product Details
Equest Horse Wormer Equest Horse Wormer is for the treatment and control of adult and larval stages of internal parasites, including small redworms, large redworms and bots in horses and ponies. If the recommended dose is given, it provides effective control of moxidectin sensitive strains of most common parasites. Equest gel also has a persistent effect in preventing infection against small strongyles for 2 weeks after recommended dose is given. Equest Wormer is supplied in a 14.8g syringe of oral gel containing 18.92mg/g moxidectin, 37.84 mg/g benzyl alcohol and 0.24 mg/g disodium edetate as preservatives. One syringe contains enough gel to treat a 700kg horse at the recommended dose rate. The syringe is split into graduations and each graduation is equivalent to a 25kg dose. To ensure accurate dosing, a weigh tape or scale is recommended to be used before administering Equest gel. Care should be taken when obtaining weights of foals, low bodyweight foals and young ponies. The dose for Equest gel is 0.4mg moxidectin per kg bodyweight. Do not use in young foals less than 4 months of age. Do not use the same syringe to administer the product to more than one horse unless they are running together or in direct contact with each other on the same premises. Equest gel is intended for the use in horses only. Dogs or cats may be adversely affected if they ingest the product. Wash hands or any exposed area after use. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. After opening, use within 6 months.

Instructions

For oral administration.

A single oral dose of 400 µg moxidectin/kg bodyweight and 2.5 mg praziquantel/kg bodyweight using the calibrated syringe of one graduation per 25 kg bodyweight.

To ensure administration of a correct dosage, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing should be checked. Use of a scale or weight tape is recommended to ensure accurate dosing.

Before the first dose, hold the syringe with the capped end pointing to the left and so that you can see the weight measurements and tick marks (small black lines). Set the syringe to zero by moving the dial ring so the left side is set at the first full black mark and depress the plunger, safely discarding any past that is expelled. To dose the product, hold the syringe as previously described. Each tick mark relates to 25 kg of bodyweight and to 10 mg moxidectin/62.5 mg praziquantel. Turn the dial ring until the left side of the ring lines up with the weight of the animal.

A single syringe treats a 700 kg horse.

To avoid overdosing, care should be taken to accurately dose foals, especially low bodyweight foals or pony foals. Veterinary advice should be given on appropriate dosing programmes and stock management to achieve optimum parasite control.
