                                                                                           Data Sheet Information

Eqvalan Paste for horses is highly effective against gastro-intestinal, cutaneous worms and pulmonary nematodes and bots of horses. Regular treatment will reduce the chances of verminous arteritis and colic caused by Strongylus vulgaris. With its broad spectrum, the product is well suited to be the major medication in parasite control programs and is well suited to be the major component in a rotational programme.

Contra Indications, warnings etc

Some horses carrying heavy infection of Onchococerca microfilariae have experienced oedema and pruritus following dosing, assumed to be the result of death of large numbers of microfilariae. These signs resolve within a few days but symptomatic treatment may be advisable. Eqvalan paste has been formulated specifically for use in horses and donkeys only.

Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy.

  • Too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class, over and extended period of time.
  • Underdosing, which may be due to underestimation of bodyweight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of the dosing device.

Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests ( eg, faecal egg count reduction test ) Where the results of the test strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to another class and having a different mode of action should be used. Resistance to macrocyclic lactones ( which includes ivermectin ) has been reported in Parascaris equorum in horses in a number of countries within the EU. Therefore the use of this product should be based on local ( regional farm ) epidermiological information about susceptibility of gastro-intestinal nematodes and recommendations on how long to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.

Do not smoke, eat or drink while handling the product. Wash hands after use.
