Equine parasites can cause a wide range of health problems for all horses, regardless of breed, age or stabling environment. Parasitic worms and bots can lead to liver and lung damage, intestinal bleeding, blindness, bronchitis, colic, lameness, blood clots, dermatitis and diarrhea. Eqvalan safely and effectively protects horses from damage caused by parasites.
Eqvalan Paste is a parasiticide (anthelminthic and boticide) which removes worms and bots in a single dose.
How this product should be used:
The content of a single oral syringe is sufficient to treat one 1250 lb horse at the recommended dose rate of 91mcg per lb. Each weight marking on the oral syringe plunger delivers enough paste to treat 250 lb of body weight. All horses should be included in a regular parasite control program with particular attention being paid to mares (including pregnant mares at any stage of pregnancy), foals and yearlings. Foals should be treated initially at 6 to 8 weeks of age, and routine treatment repeated as appropriate. Stallions may be treated without adversely affecting their fertility.
