Equimax broad spectrum for the horses provides control for all major worms of horses.

Equimax is also effective for the control of skin lesions caused by Habronema spp. And Draschia spp. Cutaneous larvae (summer sores) and Onchocerca spp. Microfilariae (cutaneous onchocerciasis).

Suggested Worm Control Programme

All horses should be included in a regular worm control programme.

Mares: Regular dosing and 6 – 8 week intervals on pastures during summer and autumn is recommended.

Stallions: Treat at least twice a year.

Foals: Regular strategic treatment at 6 – 8 week intervals, commencing at approximately two months of age, is recommended.

Bots: Bot fly activity increases in the late spring and usually peaks in the autumn with a condequent accumulation of stomach bots carried in the winter. Treatment against bots attached to the stomach wall is essential to remove established burdens in the autumn and winter.

Consult your veterinarian for a worm control programme.

Horses of all ages, including pregnant mares, breeding stallions and foals can be treated with no adverse effects.
