Each syringe contains sufficient paste to treat one 1320-lb horse at the recommended dose rate of 91 mcg ivermectin per lb (200 mcg/kg) and 0.68 mg praziquantel per lb (1.5 mg/kg) of body weight. Each weight marking on the syringe plunger delivers enough paste to treat 220 lb (100 kg) of body weight.
All horses should be included in a regular parasite control program with particular attention being paid to mares, foals, and yearlings. Foals should be treated initially at four weeks of age and routine treatment repeated as appropriate. Consult your veterinarian for a control program to meet specific needs. EQUIMAX® Paste effectively controls gastrointestinal nematodes and bots of horses. Regular treatment will reduce the chance of colic caused by Anoplocephala perfoliata and verminous arteritis caused by Strongylus vulgaris.
