Equest Oral Treatment for Horses
Equest gel is a powerful worming treatment that treats adult and larval stages of internal parasites and bots in horses and ponies. This oral gel provides long-term safety to horses of about 13 weeks from various horse worms.
The oral worm control paste treats and controls the following species:
- Large Strongyles (adults)
- Small Strongyles (adults and intraluminal larval stages)
- Ascarids (adults and third– and fourth–stage larvae)
- And other species
Equest worming treatment for horses contains moxidectin, which is a strong anthlemintic agent. Moxidectin has a unique mode of action that works efficiently against various parasites and bots. Apart from controlling all the stages of encysted small redworms it provides 2 weeks protection from re-infections.
