Equest Pramox Horse Wormer contains moxidectin and is one of the few wormers authorised to manage the encysted larval stages of small red worms. This wormer has a 13-week period of anti-worm activity after the dose has been given, therefore, reducing pasture contamination. Equest Horse Wormer is less toxic to the natural beetles and insects, which help to break up the dung on the pasture, compared with ivermectin-based products. This ensures the pastures remain cleaner and healthier where the dung is not collected from the field. Read more…Equest Pramox contains praziquantel, which controls tapeworms. A single dose of Eqyest Pramox can control the potentially dangerous red worms, all other red worms including pinworm, bots and all three types of tapeworm. A dosage can be given every three months to protect the health of your horse, providing exceptionally good control of all these parasites. Dosage and AdministrationFor Oral Administration. One 14. 4g syringe is suitable to treat a 700kg horse at the recommended dose rate (0. 4 mg moxidectin/kg bodyweight and 2. 5 mg praziquantel/kg bodyweight). Each division on the calibrated syringe delivers sufficient gel to treat 25kg of bodyweight. Use of a scale or weigh-tape is advised to ensure accurate dosing. To avoid overdosing, care should be taken to accurately dose foals, especially with low body weight or young ponies. The advised dosing interval for the control of small red worm is 13 weeks. For the ideal control of bots, the product should be administered in the autumn, between the end of fly season and before spring, as the larvae may start to pupate, and then be less sensitive to treatment.
