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 the 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.
