Equest Pramox contains Moxidectin and a tapeworm treatment Equest Pramox is a combination of two drugs in one horse wormer treats roundworm, tapeworm, bots, and encysted redworm larvae stages in horses.
Adult horses over 3yrs old should be treated for Encysted Small Redworm and Bots in late Autumn/early winter and tested or treated for tapeworm at the same time. Throughout the grazing season the need for wormer administration should be based on faecal worm egg counts taken every 2-3 months. This is dependent on good pasture management and regular removal of droppings – reducing the interval between tests may be necessary if pastures are not regularly cleared and rotated.
EQUEST PRAMOX contains the same unique active ingredient of EQUEST, and the drug of choice for the control of tapeworm.
EQUEST PRAMOX is the only combination wormer licensed to control small redworms, including the inhibited and developing encysted small redworm larval stages, as well as other roundworm species, bots and all three species of tapeworm.
EQUEST PRAMOX has the longest dosing interval of any combination wormer: 13-weeks. The active ingredient prevents the reappearance of roundworm eggs in the horse's dung for at least 90 days, which is longer than any other active (Jacobs D et al, 1995), (Parr S et al) this gives EQUEST PRAMOX its 13-week dosing interval. Moxidectin can be used in horses which are ‘high shedders' as it has the longest egg suppression period of any of the wormer ingredients. This means it can be used to reduce pasture contamination using the least number of doses.
EQUEST PRAMOX is easy to administer in a palatable gel formula. EQUEST PRAMOX melts in your horse's mouth to reduce the risk of being spat out. Presented in easy to use dial-a-dose syringes with 25kg graduations; this allows accurate dosing according to your horse's weight.
EQUEST PRAMOX has no confirmed resistance in horses in the UK or Ireland. EQUEST PRAMOX is licensed to control the increasingly prevalent whte wormer resistant strains of small redworm, making it a suitable treatment for new horses arriving at a yard.
EQUEST PRAMOX is safe to use in horses and ponies, including stallions and mares, and is licensed for use in foals from 6 ½ months. Pramox now fully licensed for breeding, pregnant and lactating mares.
Advice on the use of this or alternative medicines must be sought from the medicine prescriber.
