Further Info

 

Equest Pramox

 

Equest Pramox is a  pale yellow to orange/pink gel containing 19.5 mg/g moxidectin and 121.7 mg/g praziquantel as active ingredients and 220.0 mg/g benzyl alcohol and 0.80 mg/g butyl hydroxytoluene as preservatives/antioxidants.

 

Dosage and administration

 


For oral administration. One 11.8g syringe contains sufficient gel to treat a 575kg horse at the recommended dose rate (0.4mg moxidectin per kg bodyweight and 2.5mg praziquantel per kg bodyweight).

 

 

Each graduation on the calibrated syringe delivers sufficient gel to treat 25kg bodyweight.

 

Use of a scale or weight tape is recommended to ensure accurate dosing.

 

To avoid overdosing, care should be taken to accurately dose foals, especially low bodyweight foals or pony foals.

 

 

Dosing guideline

The recommended dosing interval for the control of small redworm is 13 weeks.

 

 

For optimum control of bots, the product should be administered in the autumn, after the end of the fly season and before spring as the larvae may start to pupate and therefore are less sensitive to treatment.

 

Veterinary advice  should be given on appropriate dosing programmes and stock management to achieve optimum parasite control.

 

Further information

Parasite resistance to a particular class of anthelmintic may develop following frequent, repeated use of an anthelmintic of that class.

 

The veterinary surgeon should give advice regarding appropriate dosing programmes and stock management to achieve adequate parasite control for both tapeworm and roundworm infestations.

 

 

In the case of cestode treatment the dose of praziquantel in the product has been selected at the top end of the dosing range.

 

 

Flaccid lower lip, ataxia and swelling of the muzzle could be observed on rare occasions in young animals. These adverse effects are transient and disappear spontaneously.

 

In adults transient adverse reactions may occur at 3 times the recommended dose. The symptoms are depression, inappetence, ataxia, flaccid lower lip in the 8 to 24 hours following treatment. Symptomatic treatment is not generally necessary and recovery is generally complete within 24 to 72 hours.There is no specific antidote.

In case of very high worm burdens, destruction of the parasites may cause a mild transient colic and loose faeces in the treated horse.

Equest Pramox Oral Gel is specially formulated to be easily expelled by the syringe plunger. Once in the horse’s mouth, Equest Pramox Oral Gel liquifies. This facilitates dosing and reduces the risk of rejection.
