Equest Pramox Wormer Syringe
Equest Pramox embodies the same principals as the ‘Equest’ wormer which contains moxidectin, however Equest Pramox also contains praziquantel which is provided for tapeworm control. Equest Pramox, in a single dose, controls the potentially dangerous small red worms, all other roundworms including pinworm, bots and all three types of tapeworm. One dose can be given every three months to protect the health of your horse, providing exceptionally good control of all these major parasites.
Dosage and administration
A single oral dose of 400 µg moxidectin/kg bodyweight and 2.5 mg praziquantel/kg bodyweight using the calibrated syringe of one graduation per 25 kg bodyweight.
To ensure administration of a correct dosage, bodyweight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing should be checked.Use of a scale or weight tape is recommended to ensure accurate dosing.
Before the first dose, hold the syringe with the capped end pointing to the left and so that you can see the weight measurements and tick marks (small black lines). Set the syringe to zero by moving the dial ring so the left side is set at the first full black mark and depress the plunger, safely discarding any paste that is expelled. To dose the product, hold the syringe as previously described. Each tick mark relates to 25 kg of bodyweight and to 10 mg moxidectin/62.5 mg praziquantel. Turn the dial ring until the left side of the ring lines up with the weight of the animal.
A single syringe treats a 700 kg horse.
To avoid overdosing, care should be taken to accurately dose foals, especially low bodyweight foals or pony foals. Veterinary advice should be given on appropriate dosing programmes and stock management to achieve optimum parasite control.
