Equest Pramox Horse Wormer Gel is used for the treatment of mixed infestations cause by moxidectin sensitive strains of nematodes or arthropods and praziquantel sensitive strains of cestodes.
Equest Pramox Oral Gel is a parasiticide active against a wide range of internal and external parasites of horses, ponies, mares and foals. It contains moxidectin, a second generation macrocyclic lactone of the milbemycin family. Moxidectin paralyses and kills parasites by its effect on their nervous systems. It also contains praziquantel, a parasiticide widely used in many species for the specific control of tapeworm. Praziquantel is quickly absorbed via the tegument of the tapeworm and distributed evenly within the parasite. It disrupts the metabolism of the tapeworm, resulting in contraction and paralysis of the parasite.
One gradation of the calibrated syringe delivers sufficient gel to treat 25 kg live weight. A single syringe treats a 700 kg horse.
To ensure administration of a correct dosage, body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing should be checked.
Use of a scale or weight tape is recommended to ensure accurate dosing. Before the first dose, hold the syringe with the capped end pointing to the left and so that you can see the weight measurements and tick marks (small black lines). Set the syringe to zero by moving the dial ring so the left side is set at the first full black mark and depress the plunger, safely discarding any paste that is expelled.
To dose the product, hold the syringe as previously described. Each tick mark relates to 25 kg of bodyweight and to 10 mg moxidectin/62.5 mg praziquantel. Turn the dial ring until the left side of the ring lines up with the weight of the animal.
