WHY CHOOSE EQUIMAX?
Broad Spectrum Allwormer
The combination of abamectin and praziquantel in EQUIMAX provides a broad-spectrum anti-parasiticide for total control of all susceptible equine worms, bots, lungworms, intestinal threadworms, tapeworms and skin parasites (summer sores and neck threadworms).
Protects against worm related disease
Worming strategically involves worming your horse based on the parasite lifecycle and risk of disease. The lifecycle of different parasites mean that they may be more active at different times of the year. Autumn and spring will always be key times to worm all horses. It makes sense to target mectin wormers in the cooler months when bots and small strongyles are more active inside the horse. Mectins are also being overused in adult horses which necessitate the strategic use of other chemicals. Using non-mectin chemicals is typically suited to the warmer months although if summer sores are a problem a mectin product will be needed. Environmental conditions and temperature will also impact your worming program. A wormer only containing a mectin +/- a tapewormer should not be used in horses less than two years of age. Equimax is the ideal adult horse wormer during the cooler months. A Faecal egg count (FEC) can provide an insight into the significance of important worms in your adult horse. If used correctly, a FEC can decrease reliance on worming treatments and extend the life of wormers used today.
Track record of safety
Extensive internal and independent trials have proven the safety and efficacy of EQUIMAX. Safety has been proven in different age groups and life stages of horses including foals, pregnant mares and breeding stallions.
