Dosage and administration

ERAQUELL paste is given by mouth at the recommended dose rate of 200 micrograms per kg of bodyweight as a single dose. Each syringe division delivers sufficient paste to treat 100kg of bodyweight (corresponding to 1.07g product and 20mg ivermectin). Each syringe delivers 140mg ivermectin, sufficient to treat 700kg of bodyweight.

The horse's weight should be accurately determined to ensure use of the correct dose of product.

The animal's mouth must be free of food. The syringe should be placed between the front and back teeth and the paste deposited at the base of the tongue. Immediately elevate the head for a few seconds to ensure that the product is swallowed. Re-treatment should be carried out according to the epidemiological situation and at not less than 30 day intervals. Eraquell may be used in pregnant mares.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

For animal treatment only.

Not to be used in mares producing milk for human consumption.

Some horses carrying heavy infection of Onchocerca microfilariae have experienced reactions with swelling and itching after treatment. It is 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.

Eraquell has been formulated specifically for use in horses. Dogs and cats may be adversely affected by the concentration of ivermectin in this product, if they are allowed to ingest spilled paste or have access to used syringes.
