Details

Contains Abamectin and Praziquantel.

Abamectin is an efficient broad-spectrum wormer and Praziquantel is totally effective against tapeworm. This offers horse owners the opportunity to treat for every worm when they drench their horse. Equimax is the only horse wormer available that can deliver this promise. This ensures that their horse has the least chance of developing worm related colic or illness.

Dose rate of 1mL/20Kg bodyweight
Being a paste with a larger volume dose size (16.2grams or 32.4grams) means that if any of the dose is spilt or rejected then the wasted amount of active ingredient is minimised.

Dosage rate of every 6 - 8 weeks ensures effective control of all worms as this period takes into account the lifecycle of all worms. A strategic worming program should take into account the peak seasons for worming for specific worms (e.g. Tapeworm coming into winter). Without regular assessment of worm status (every 8 weeks) and strategic drenching, it is possible that total worm control will not be achievable.

Safety at up to five times the recommended dose rate in adult horses. The benefit to the consumer is that in a healthy adult horse, a dangerous overdose is virtually impossible when dosing with one syringe.
 
Rotation
It is recommended to practise rotation of wormers to help prevent or slow the development of resistance. Products should be rotated yearly with one active being used for an entire year and then switching to a different active for the next year.
Strategy-T and Equimax contain completely different actives so make excellent rotation partners. During a Strategy-T year, Equimax
needs to be included twice, as Strategy-T does not treat bots. Bots must be treated at the end of autumn and the beginning of spring.
Treatment of mares and foals
Equimax is safe to use in pregnant and lactating mares as well as young foals. Pregnant mares should be treated as normal during their pregnancy taking care not to stress them during treatment. Mares should be wormed two weeks prior to their expected foaling date. Once a mare has foaled the mare and foal should both be wormed starting from when the foal is six weeks old. Young horses need to be treated differently to older horses because they are at risk of mectin resistant ascarids. Ascarids appear to be the worm developing resistance to mectins. Generally ascarids are not found in horses over two years of age as horses seem to develop a natural immunity to these worms as they mature. Horses under two should be wormed every six weeks with Equimax Elevation. Once a horse turns two they should be then put on the Equimax/Strategy-T rotation program, however Equimax Elevation is safe to use in horses of all ages if you wish to.

I like this product due to the size of the wormer dosage. I have big horses and this covers them without having to buy any additional. I really like that this item has been on special for the relevant worming period.

I always buy this product for my horses
