Equest Plus

Overview

Equest® Plus Tape is a long acting horse wormer and boticide gel for horses. It treats and controls tapeworms, roundworms, small strongyles, and bots of horses and ponies. Just a single dose is effective against encysted stages of small strongyles: developing stages (DL), late encysted stages (LL3/EL4), and aids in control of early encysted stages (EL3) including inhibited larvae. It protects horses from all types of worms and stomach bots.

How does it work?

Equest Plus Tape contains two major ingredients – Moxidectin and Praziquantel. These two compounds work together to treat tapeworms and damages encysted small strongyles. In addition to tapeworm, it controls all the other major gastrointestinal worms and bots in horses. This horse wormer prevents significant re-occurrence of parasite eggs in the faeces of treated horses for up to 16 weeks.

Apart from tapeworm and roundworms it treats:

  • Pinworms: Oxyurus equi (adults and L3/L4 larval stages).
  • Ascarids: Parascaris equorum (adults and intestinal stages (L4)).
  • Hairworms: Trichostrongylus axei (adults).
  • Intestinal Threadworms: Strongyloides westeri.
  • Large Mouthed Stomach Worms: Habronema spp. (gastric and cutaneous (summer sore) forms).
  • Stomach Bots: Gasterophilus intestinalis (2 & 3 stage larvae), Gasterophilus nasalis (2 & 3 stage larvae).
  • Cutaneous Onchocerciasis: Onchocerca spp. (microfiliariae)

Direction

  • 1 tube is sufficient to treat a 575kg horse.
  • More than one syringe is needed to treat horses weighing more than 575 kg.
  • According to the directions on the pack, prepare the syringe to administer.
  • Ensure your horse mouth is empty.
  • Insert the nozzle of the syringe into the horse mouth.
  • Deliver the dose of gel into the back of the tongue by gently pushing the plunger until it stops.
  • Ensure that the gel is completely swallowed.
