WHY CHOOSE EQUIMAX?

  • Broad Spectrum Allwormer

    The combination of abamectin and praziquantel in EQUIMAX provides a broad-spectrum anti-parasiticide for total control of all susceptible equine worms, bots, lungworms, intestinal threadworms, tapeworms and skin parasites (summer sores and neck threadworms).

  • Protects against worm related disease

    Worming strategically involves worming your horse based on the parasite lifecycle and risk of disease. The lifecycle of different parasites mean that they may be more active at different times of the year. Autumn and spring will always be key times to worm all horses. It makes sense to target mectin wormers in the cooler months when bots and small strongyles are more active inside the horse. Mectins are also being overused in adult horses which necessitate the strategic use of other chemicals. Using non-mectin chemicals is typically suited to the warmer months although if summer sores are a problem a mectin product will be needed. Environmental conditions and temperature will also impact your worming program. A wormer only containing a mectin +/- a tapewormer should not be used in horses less than two years of age. Equimax is the ideal adult horse wormer during the cooler months. A Faecal egg count (FEC) can provide an insight into the significance of important worms in your adult horse. If used correctly, a FEC can decrease reliance on worming treatments and extend the life of wormers used today.

  • Track record of safety

    Extensive internal and independent trials have proven the safety and efficacy of EQUIMAX. Safety has been proven in different age groups and life stages of horses including foals, pregnant mares and breeding stallions.

  • Treats horses weighing up to 700kg

    Most horse owners underestimate their horse’s weight by as much as 20%. Underdosing due to underestimating weight can leave horse unprotected against worm related disease and may lead to resistance. EQUIMAX’s 700kg size will treat 99% of Australian horses in a single tube.

  • Palatable flavour

    EQUIMAX is in a palatable oatmeal paste, making it easy to administer.

  • Australia’s leading wormer

    Australia’s most trusted wormer on the market, has proven the test of time with horse owners around Australia trusting EQUIMAX as the most effective and safe wormer available for their horse.

  • Developed and made in Australia

    EQUIMAX is an Australian developed and manufactured product that has been launched into many countries worldwide as the most effective allwormer available for horses.

Frequently asked questions about Equimax Paste:

Can I use Equimax® in pregnant mares?
Yes Equimax® can be used in mares at all stages of pregnancy. Pregnant mares should be treated as normal during their pregnancy taking care not to stress them during treatment. Mares should be wormed two weeks prior to their expected foaling date. Once a mare has foaled, the mare and foal should both be wormed starting from when the foal is six weeks old.

Can I use Equimax® in my stallion?
Equimax® can be safely used in breeding stallions at any time without adversely affecting their fertility.

How often should I worm my horse?
How often horses are wormed depends on the property’s management system. It is ideal to use the minimum number of treatments possible in a year, as over-worming can lead to resistance. Depending on a number of factors, some horse owners will need to worm more often than others. Where there are large numbers of horses kept close together and/ or horses are frequently moving on and off a property, there will be a greater need for worm control. This is because these horses will be at the greatest risk of contamination. Horses in these situations, generally on studs or agistment properties, will need to be wormed every six to eight weeks. It may be possible, where there are low stocking densities, to worm horses less often. The use of paddock management procedures like manure removal, paddock rotation and grazing with other species will also help lower contamination pressure. All horses should be wormed at least once every 3 months regardless of the conditions in which they are kept. All horses on a property should be wormed at the same time. New horses should be quarantined and wormed before coming onto the property. If you are unsure about what drenching interval is right for your situation please consult your vet or local Virbac area manager.

What is rotation and why should I be doing it?
Appropriate rotation should be taken into account to help prevent or slow the development of resistance. It is recommended to practise rotation of wormers to help prevent or slow the development of resistance. Products should be rotated yearly with one active being used for an entire year and then switching to a different active for the next year. Strategy-T® and Equimax contain completely different actives so make excellent rotation partners. During a Strategy-T® year, Equimax needs to be included twice, as Strategy-T® does not treat bots. Bots must be treated at the end of autumn and the beginning of spring.

There is a good chance your deworming strategy needs updating. Just because you deworm your horse — and he’s shiny and in good weight — doesn’t mean he isn’t full of worms.
