Equest Plus Tape Long Acting Wormer for Horses 11.8g

Short Description

Experts agree that the best way to protect your horse and avoid resistance is to worm only when your horse needs treatment, and to choose products that best target your horse's parasite profile.1

 

Choose Equest Plus Tape:

  • The only wormer that can kill encysted stages of the most dangerous parasites for modern horses, small strongyles, in a single dose.2
  •  
  • Longest treatment interval on the market, keeping your paddock clear of eggs for up to 14-16 weeks*.

Full Product Description

Equest Plus Tape is the only horse wormer that is long acting: re-treatment is recommended after 14-16 weeks compared to after 6-8 weeks with other wormers. This means fewer treatments per year and twice the time that pastures are left free of worm eggs.

Equest Plus Tape is also the only horse wormer to have a registered claim to control encysted small strongyles in a single dose. Small strongyle worms hibernate or encyst in the lining of the horses gut and can cause colic. While other horse wormers kill the small strongyle worms that are in the gut itself, Equest Plus Tape is the only wormer with a registered claim to also kill the encysted forms. This means that the life cycle is blocked at a much earlier stage and that no small strongyle worms can re-emerge and mature in the horses gut straight after worming.

Equest Plus Tape is a unique gel formulation that dissolves rapidly on the tongue. The dial up syringe is designed with a narrow barrel to allow easy access into the side of the horses mouth and deliver the right dose every time.

 

Equest Plus Tape is safe for pregnant mares and breeding stallions as well as foal over 4 weeks of age.

Active Constituents: Moxidectin 20mg/ml, Praziquantel 125mg/mL.

Contents: 11.8g net (One tube is sufficient to treat a horse of 575kg)


Broad Spectrum:
Equest Plus Tape long acting horse wormer and boticide gel is the only horse wormer to control tapeworm and all important gastrointestinal roundworms, including adult and encysted stages (DL, LL3, EL4) and benzimidazole resistant strains of small strongyles, and aids in control of early encysted stages (EL3), including inhibited larvae (greater than 90% effective). Protects for 14 -16 weeks.

Parasite Control Programs:
All horses should have a regular parasite control program. Regular treatment will reduce the risk of diseases due to small and large strongyles such as colic and verminous arteritis. Reinfection of horses with worms is common and treatment must be repeated routinely to ensure effective control. The unique long term activity of Equest Plus Tape long acting horse wormer & boticide gel against worms, including encysted small strongyles, is particularly useful in reducing the required dosing frequency in strategic parasite control programs. Retreatment intervals for the control of small strongyles can be extended for 14 to 16 weeks. Consult your veterinarian for advice on faecal egg count interpretation and the appropriate program for your specific needs.

Indications:
Equest Plus Tape contains the active ingredient moxidectin, a second generation macrocyclic lactone, and praziquantel, a synthetic isoquinoline-pyrazine derivative. Equest Plus Tape is palatable and effective for the treatment and control of:

  • Tapeworm: Anoplocephala perfoliata and Paranoplocephala mamillana.
  • Large Strongyles: Strongylus vulgaris (adults, L3 and L4 arterial stages), Strongylus edentatus (adults and L4 visceral larval stages), Strongylus equinus (adults), Tridontophorus spp. (adults) including T. brevicauda, T. serratus and T. tenuicollis, Craterostomum acuticaudatum (adults).
  • Small Strongyles (adults): Cyathostomum spp. including C. catinatum and C. pateratum, Cylicostephanus spp. including C. calicatus, C. goldi, C. longibursatus and C. minutus, Cylicocyclus spp. including C. brevicapsulatus, C. elongatus, C. insigne, C. leptostomum, C. nassatus, C. radiatus, C. ashworthi and C. ultrajectinus, Cylicodontophorus bicoronatus, Coronocyclus spp. including C. coronatus, C. labiatus and C. labratus, Gyalocephalus capitatus, Parapoteriostomum mettami, Peterovinema poculatus, Poteriostomum imparidentatum, as well as benzimidazole resistant strains. Equest Plus Tape long acting horse wormer and boticide gel is the only horse wormer effective as a single dose 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 (greater than 90% effective).
  • 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)

Egg Reappearance Period (ERP) for Equest Plus tape long acting horse wormer and boticide gel is at least 14 weeks, which means that recontamination of the pasture by strongyle eggs is significantly reduced during this period.

Note: 1 syringe is sufficient to treat a horse weighing 575kg. For a heavy horse (weight exceeding 575kg) it will be necessary to apply more than 1 syringe. For instance, a 725kg horse would require 1 1/4 syringes to treat. To accurately determine the amount to administer with the second syringe, subtract 575 from the horse's weight and set the plunger accordingly. For a 725kg horse, set the plunger on the second syringe to 150kg (725kg minus 575kg).

Surplus gel can be stored or be used to treat a second horse. If gel remains in the syringe once the full dose has been delivered, replace the barrel cap; store the remaining gel below 30 degrees celsius (room temperature) for later use, but do not use after the expiry date shown on the label.

If the first animal treated weighed less than 575kg, there will be gel left in the syringe, which can be used to treat a second horse. To set the next dose, add the weight of the animal to be treated to the dose setting already on the syringe. For example, if the syringe was first used to treat a foal weighing 100kg, the dial ring is set on 100kg. To treat a horse of 400kg next, move the dial ring to the 500kg marking.

More than one syringe is needed to treat horses weighing more than 575kg.

Directions for Use & Dosage

Directions for Use:

  • Do not administer the full syringe to horses under 400kg
  •  
  • Use with caution in foals and smaller breeds by carefully calibrating the dose and avoid overdosing.
  •  
  • Keep away from dogs. Excessive consumption of split material may cause toxicity.
  •  
  • When used as directed, Equest Plus Tape long acting horse wormer and boticide gel is safe in foals over 4 weeks of age, and in all breeding stock, including stallions and pregnant mares.

 

Dosage:
Equest Plus Tape is administered orally (into the mouth) at a dose rate of 0.4mg/kg moxidectin and 2.5mg/kg praziquantel. It is supplied in a ready to use syringe, calibrated according to the bodyweight of the horse to be treated, in intervals of 25kg bodyweight.
