Equest plus Tape Horse Wormer

A broad spectrum effective horse wormer and bot treatment, including tapeworms and the damaging encysted small strongyles.


For the treatment and control of tapeworm, roundworms, adult and late encysted stages of small strongyles (redworms), and bots in horses and ponies with a single dose


• Lasts longer than any other wormer available in NZ

• Prevents significant reoccurrence of parasite eggs in the faeces of treated horses for up to 16 weeks

• Low volume gel is rapidly absorbed and easily administered • Highly effective against significant parasite threats, including roundworms, tapeworms and bots

• Treats and controls encysted small strongyles (cyathostomes), the major parasite of concern in adult horses

• Treats and controls ascarids (Parascaris equorum) which remain the most important parasite infecting foals and weanlings

• Shown to reduce faecal egg counts by 99.9% in a single dose, while a five-day, double-dose regimen of fenbendazole was only 42% effective

• When used as directed, Equest Plus Tape is safe in foals over 4 weeks of age and in all breeding stock, including stallions and pregnant mares

• Do not administer the full syringe to horses under 400kg ADMINISTRATION Administer orally (into the mouth) at a dose rate of 0.4mg/kg moxidectin and 2.5mg/kg praziquantel.

Supplied in a ready to use syringe, calibrated according to the body weight of the horse to be treated.

One syringe is sufficient to treat a horse weighing 575 kg. For a heavy horse (weight exceeding 575 kg) it will be necessary to apply more than one syringe. For instance a 725 kg horse would require 1¼ syringes to treat. To accurately determine the amount to administer with the second syringe, subtract 575 from the horse’s weight and set the plunger accordingly. For a 725 kg horse, set the plunger on the second syringe to 150 kg (725 kg – 575 kg).
