Equimax Oral Gel for Horses is a dual wormer that treats adult and immature roundworms, lungworms, bots and tapeworms in horses. It is suitable for foals from 2 weeks of age and is safe for mares throughtout pregnancy and lactation but must not be used in horses producing milk for human consumption. The withdrawal period for meat and offal is 35 days.
As tapeworm infestation is unlikely to occur in horses before two months of age, treatment of foals below this age is not considered necessary.

- 200µg of Ivermectin and 1.5mg of praziquantel per kg of bodyweight corresponding to 1.07g of paste per 100kg bodyweight.
- To ensure administration of a correct dose, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked as underdosing might lead to an increased risk of development of resistance to anthelmintic drugs.
- The first division delivers enough paste to treat 100kg. Each subsequent syringe division delivers enough paste to treat 50kg of bodyweight. The syringe should be adjusted to the calculated dosage by setting the ring on the appropriate place on the plunger.
- The paste is administered orally by inserting the nozzle of the syringe through the interdental space and depositing the required amount of paste on the back of the tongue.
- The animal's mouth should be free of any food.
- Immediately after administration, elevate the head of the horse for a few seconds to ensure the dose is swallowed.
- Active Ingredients (per g): Ivermectin 18.7mg, Praziquantel 140.3mg.
Other Ingredients: Titanium dioxide (E171) 20mg, Propylene glycol 731mg, Hydrogenated castor oil and Hydroxypropylcellulose.
Resistance to ivermectin (an avermectin) has been reported in Parascaris equorum in horses in a number of countries including the EU. Therefore the use of this product should be based on local (regional farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.
