Equimax Oral Gel

 

 

Eqimax Oral Gel is a  white homogenous, apple-flavoured paste containing:

 

1.87% w/w ivermectin Ph.Eur.

 

14.03% w/w praziquantel Ph.Eur.

 

 

Dosage and administration

 


Equimax Oral Gel for Horses is given by mouth at the recommended dose rate of 200 micrograms of ivermectin and 1.5mg of praziquantel per kg of bodyweight as a single dose, corresponding to 1.07g of paste per 100kg bodyweight.

 

 

The first syringe division delivers sufficient paste to treat 100kg of bodyweight. Each subsequent syringe division delivers sufficient paste to treat 50kg of bodyweight. The syringe delivers sufficient paste to treat 700kg bodyweight at the recommended dose rate.

 

The horse’s weight should be accurately determined to ensure use of the correct dose of product.

 

Before administration adjust the syringe to the calculated dosage by setting the ring on the plunger.

 

 

The animal’s mouth must be free of food. The syringe should be placed between the front and back teeth and the paste deposited at the base of the tongue. Immediately elevate the head for a few seconds to ensure that the product is swallowed.

 

 

Treatment is recommended at least twice a year, in spring and autumn or according to veterinary advice. Intermediate roundworm treatment is also advisable.
