Equest Wormer Syringe
Equest contains moxidectin and is one of the few wormers licensed to control the important encysted larval stages of small red worms. It has a long period of anti-worm activity after the dose has been given (13 weeks) and so helps to reduce pasture contamination.
Equest is also less toxic to the natural beetles and other insects which help to break up the dung on the pasture, compared with ivermectin-based products. This means that pastures tend to remain cleaner and healthier where the dung is not collected from the field.
Dosage and administration
For oral administration. A single oral dose of 400 µg moxidectin/kg bodyweight using the calibrated syringe. 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 that 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 bodyweight and to 10 mg moxidectin. Turn the dial ring until the left side of the ring lines up with the weight of the animal.
Use of a scale or weigh tape is recommended to ensure accurate dosing.
* Mares may be treated at any stage of pregnancy and lactation.
