Equitape - Further information

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....Parasite resistance to a particular class of anthelmintic may develop following frequent, repeated use of an anthelmintic of that class.  In the absence of compatibility studies this veterinary product must not be mixed with other medicinal products.
