Ultimum is indicated for the control of tapeworm and all important susceptible strains of gastrointestinal roundworms, including adult and encysted stages (DL, LL3, EL4) and benzimidazoleresistant strains of small strongyles, and aids in control of early encysted stages (EL3), including inhibited larvae.
When used as directed, Ultimum is safe in foals over 4 weeks of age and in all breeding stock, including stallions and pregnant mares.
Why Choose Ultimum?
TIMELY - Ultimum is recommended for horses with a suspected large burden of encysted small strongyles (roundworms) typically in late Autumn or early Spring. It is also recommended for new horses arriving on a property with an unknown worming history.
TARGETED - Ultimum is the ideal wormer for young and adult horses with a suspected large burden of encysted small strongyles. It is also recommended for new horses arriving on a property with an unknown worming history.
POWERFUL - Ultimum contains moxidectin, a powerful and persistent second-generation ‘mectin’. When administered as part of Virbac’s Gold Standard strategic worming program, ULTIMUM provides horses effective and sustainable worm control in conjunction with EQUIMAX, EQUIMAX ELEVATION and STRATEGY-T. The Egg Reappearance Period (ERP) for ULTIMUM is at least 14 weeks, which means that recontamination of the pasture by strongyle eggs is significantly reduced during this period. It is important to note that resistance may develop to any chemical.
PALATABLE - Ultimum is an oral gel and easy to administer.
AUSTRALIAN- Developed and made in Australia specifically for Australian conditions.
Yearling to Adult Horses: Ultimum may be recommended for horses with a suspected large burden of encysted small strongyle larvae.
High Shedders: Treatment with Ultimum may be recommended for horses with repeated high faecal egg counts and suspected large burden of small strongyles.
Quarantined / New Horses: Ultimum is recommended for new horses arriving on a property with an unknown worming history. Horses that are below 2 years of age should be given 2 separate worming products i.e. Ultimum and Strategy-T, but for horses over 2 years of age treat with Ultimum or as recommended by your veterinarian.
