Expel Yellow Tube is highly effective against gastrointestinal, cutaneous and pulmonary nematodes in horses of all ages. Regular treatment with Expel Yellow Tube will also reduce the chances of verminous arteritis and colic caused by strongylus vulgaris.
Expel Yellow Tube combines two active ingredients, Abamectin and Morantel Tartrate, that work together to give a cross kill action on a number of worms including the possible mectin resistant large roundworm. Treatment of large roundworms is particularly important to horses under 24 months of age.
Expel Yellow Tube contains abamectin which kills up to 100% of bots and other worms (including benzimidazole resistant strains),whilst morantel tartrate is effective against tapeworms, small and large strongyles, large roundworm and pinworms.
At the recommended dose rate of 5.4g/100k, Expel Yellow Tube treats and controls the following parasites:
Tapeworms - Anoplocephala perfoliate;
Large Strongyles - Strongylus vulgaris (adult and arterial larval stage), Strongylus edentatus (adult and tissue stages),Strongylus equinus (adults), Triodontophorus spp. (adults);
Small Strongyles - Including (adult and immature) benzimidazole resistant strains of:
Cyathostomum spp., Cylicocylus spp.,Cylicostephanus spp., Cylicodontophorus spp., Gyalocephalus spp;
Pinworms - Oxyuris equi (adult and immature);
Ascarids - Parascaris equorum (adult and immature);
Hairworms - Trichostrongylus axei (adult);
Large Mouth Stomach Worms - Habronema muscae (adult);
Neck Threadworms - Onchocerca spp. (microfilariae);
Bots - Gasterophilus spp. (oral and gastric stages);
Lungworms - Dictyocaulus arnfieldi (adult and immature); and
Intestinal Threadworms - Strongyloides westeri (adults).
Expel Yellow Tube is also an effective control of skin lesions caused by Habronema and Draschia spp. cutaneous larvae (summer sores) and Onchocerca spp. microfilariae (cutaneous onchocerciasis).
All horses should be included in a regular parasite control programme with particular attention being paid to mares, foals and yearlings. Because re-infection is common, treatment must be repeated routinely for effective control.
Expel Yellow Tube is suitable for horses, ponies and foals from 6 weeks of age.
