EQUIMEC Plus Tape has a wide margin of safety at the recommended dose level. It may be used in horses of all ages. Mares may be treated at any stage of pregnancy. Stallions may be treated without adversely affecting their fertility.

Suggested Parasite Program: Treat all the horses due for treatment on the property at the same time. Foals should be treated initially at 6 to 8 weeks of age, and routine treatment repeated as appropriate. Generally, young horses, brood mares, yearlings and horses exposed to high levels of reinfection should be drenched every 6-8 weeks. For horses lightly stocked in large paddocks this may be extended out to every 10-12 weeks.
All horses should be included in a regular parasite control program. Consult your veterinarian for a control program to meet your specifi c needs.
