  • To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible.
  • The animal’s mouth should be free from food to ensure swallowing.
  • Turn the screw gauge on the syringe plunger to the body weight of the horse.
  • The tip of the syringe barrel should be inserted at the interdental space (the gap between the front and back teeth) and the paste deposited on the base of the tongue.
  • Advance the plunger as far as it will go, depositing the medication on the base of the tongue.
  • Immediately elevate the horse’s head for a few seconds to ensure swallowing.


  • Active Ingredient: Ivermectin 18.7 mg/g.
  • Other Ingredients: Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Hydroxypropylcellulose, Titanium Dioxide (E171) and Propylene Glycol.


  • Some horses with heavy infections of Onchocerca spp. microfilariae have experienced oedema and pruritus following treatment, such reactions are assumed to be the result of death of large numbers of microfilariae. These signs resolve within a few days but symptomatic treatment may be advisable.
  • Resistance to ivermectin has been reported in Parascaris equorum. Therefore, the use of this product should be based on local farm epidemiological information about susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.
  • Since ivermectin is highly bound to plasma proteins, special care should be taken in cases of sick animals or in nutritional conditions associated with low plasma protein levels.
  • EXTREMELY DANGEROUS TO FISH AND AQUATIC LIFE. Do not contaminate surface waters or ditches with product or used container. Any unused veterinary medicinal product or waste materials derived from such veterinary medicinal products should be disposed of in accordance with local requirements.
