Equestrian Wormer Considerations
As equestrian wormers are controlled in their distribution, you will need to have your purchase approved by one of our SQP licenced members of staff. You can contact us for further information
Equest Pramox is a revolutionary equine wormer that comes in a calibrated syringe in the form of a palatable oral gel which makes dosing the product nice and easy. It is one of the few wormers available which is licensed to control the important encysted larval stages of small red worms. Containing moxidectin and praziquantel, it is the only combination wormer to control roundworms, bots, all 3 species of tapeworm, and all stages of the harmful and potentially fatal encysted small redworm larvae, achieving all of this in a single dose.
It provides 13 weeks of protection after dosing against red worm and an incredible 6 months of protection against tapeworm. It is recommended to use Equest Pramox in the spring and autumn to control tapeworm and then to save on costs between these dosages you can use Equest original to control red worms. Equest Pramox is also less toxic to natural insects which help to break up the dung on the pasture compared with ivermectin-based products, this helps maintain a cleaner and healthier pasture.
One syringe will treat a horse up to 700kg and is licensed for use in foals from six months of age. It is also suitable for use with breeding, pregnant and lactating mares. Do not use Equest Pramox for sick or neglected horses. It is important that you read the product datasheet before administering this product and that you use the product only as detailed within.

For oral administration. A single oral dose of 400 µg moxidectin/kg body weight using the calibrated syringe. 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 that 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 body weight and to 10 mg moxidectin. Turn the dial ring until the left side of the ring lines up with the weight of the animal.
Use of a scale or weigh tape is recommended to ensure accurate dosing.
A single syringe treats a 700 kg horse.
To avoid overdosing, care should be taken to accurately dose foals, especially low bodyweight foals or young ponies
