Do not use Equest for sick or debilitated horses

For the most recent summary or characteristics for Equest horse wormer please follow link to the data sheet below.

Equest has the remarkably long duration of action worming horses for 13 weeks.

Use Equest Pramox wormer alternately with Equest every quarter for a years complete worming programme. Thats just four single doses a year, one for each season!

Over 90% of the small redworm in your horse can be encysted in its gut wall. Undetectable, horses can harbour tens of thousands of encysted small redworm with no visible illness (Love S et al, 1999). Killing these larvae before they emerge en masse and cause potentially fatal intestinal damage is an important part of any worm control programme.

Ivermectin, mebendazole and pyrantel-based wormers are simply not effective against encysted small redworm, and fenbendazole-based wormers require a 5-day course. With widespread small redworm resistance to fenbendazole, prevalent on over 80% of stables in the UK (Fisher M et al, 1992), and the fact that this 5-day course actually may increase the selection pressure for resistance amongst small redworm (Reinemeyer C et al, 2003), the use of fenbendazole for the control of encysted small redworm is not advisable where resistance is present (Coles G et al, 2003).

EQUEST is the only wormer to carry on killing small redworm larvae ingested while your horse grazes for a further two weeks after treatment, cleaning the pasture of this parasite and reducing your horse’s exposure to re-infection.

Larvae ingested by your horse as it grazes invade and accumulate in the horse’s gut wall. With warmer and wetter winters the peak periods for larval infestation have expanded resulting in the potential for larvae to be picked up late in the year (Love S, 2003). This accumulation of larvae during the grazing season causes damage and inflammation to the horse’s gut wall resulting in weight loss, as well as having the potential to cause life-threatening illness (Love S et al, 1999).

EQUEST has no confirmed resistance in horses in the UK or Ireland.

EQUEST is kind to the environment. With lower toxicity to dung dwelling insects than ivermectin-based wormers, insects can carry on cleaning the pasture of dung.

Millions of doses of EQUEST have been safely given to horses of all kinds and research has shown it is safe to use in pregnant and lactating mares, stallions and foals over four months of age.

Advice on the use of this or alternative medicines must be sought from the medicine prescriber.

equest and equest pramox dosing programme

Together, EQUEST and EQUEST PRAMOX offer a simple, comprehensive and effective year-round worm control programme; protecting the health of your horse with a total of just 4 single doses a year.

Treatment for tapeworm is recommended every 6 months, in the spring and autumn, as such it is suggested that EQUEST PRAMOX is used during these seasons with EQUEST given in the summer and winter.

Alternatively, if you want to treat for tapeworm separately or if you are treating a pregnant or lactating mare, it is suggested you use the Equest and Equitape programme.
