Eqvalan horse wormer paste contains ivermectin and is effective against most common worms except tapeworm and encysted small redworms. It treats lungworm in horses and donkeys. A dose for Bots is best given after a hard frost has killed the last bot flies ie around Christmas. Dosing needs to be repeated every 8 – 10 weeks. One tube treats 600kg.
Repeated use of the same type of wormer can lead to the development of resistance in parasites to treatment. Equine Health Direct strongly recommends including a Faecal Worm Egg count in customers worming programmes and rotating the type of wormer that they use. If you need any further advice regarding worming programmes please see our Worming advice page or contact us.
