Dosage & Instructions for use:
Use one 6.67g syringe with sufficient paste to treat one 600kg horse at the recommended dose rate (1mg praziquantel per kg bodyweight), each graduation on the calibrated syringe delivers sufficient paste to treat 50kg bodyweight and use of a scale or weigh tape to ensure accurate dosing.
The white paste contains: 90.0mg praziquantel, 0.2mg/g propyl parahydroxybenzoate (E216) and 1.4mg/g methyl parahydroxybenzoate (E218) as preservatives.
In order to limit pasture excretion of the product and its metabolites horses should remain stabled for 2 days after treatment. As tapeworm infection is unlikely to occur in horses before two months of age treatment of foals below this age is not considered necessary. In horses with severe infections treatment may result in mild transient colic and loose faeces due to the destruction of the tapeworms and Parasite resistance to a particular class of anthelmintic may develop following frequent repeated use of an anthelmintic of that class.
