Equimax® LV is given orally. The recommended dose level is 1mL/100 kg bodyweight. This dose delivers 0.2 mg/kg of IVERMECTIN and 1.5 mg/kg of PRAZIQUANTEL.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR USE
General guidelines - Consult a veterinarian for a control programme to meet individual needs.
All horses should be included in a regular parasite control
programme with particular attention being paid to foals, breeding mares & yearlings.
Foals should be treated initially at 6 to 8 weeks of age, and routine treatment repeated every 6 weeks until they are 12 months old.
Mares should be treated 2 weeks before foaling and repeated when the foal is wormed.
Adult horses living in high population densities or horses that mix regularly with other horses should be wormed every 6 to 8 weeks.
Virbac Strategy T
Don't risk it. Rotate it.
Always use Strategy-T as part of your worming program.
In order to protect the effectiveness of your worming program you need to rotate from one class of active ingredient to another.
With it's unique combination of ingredients, Strategy-T is the best rotational choice because it is the only non-mectin wormer that has comparable efficacy against worms, including benzimidazole (BZ) resistant strains.
Now it’s an even better choice because Strategy-T also protects your horse from mectin resistance. Strategy-T is now registered for the treatment and control of susceptible strains of all common worms in horses, including adult stages of ivermectin, moxidectin and abamectin resistant ascarids. If you already have or think you may have a resistance problem, use Strategy-T to help solve it. So don’t risk it, rotate it instead.

Why use Strategy-T?
Unique combination of actives
The combination of oxfendazole and pyrantel in Strategy-T act to complement one another’s activity against all major equine worms including tapeworm and benzimidazole resistant redworms (small strongyles or cyathostomes). The combination of these two active ingredients in Strategy-T results in a more effective wormer than either active ingredient alone.
Ideal rotational wormer
Strategy-T is the only wormer available that contains the combination of a benzimidazole and tetrahydropyrimadine. This makes Strategy-T the ONLY wormer that effectively treats all major worms of horses including tapeworm and benzimidazole resistant small strongyles that does not contain a macrocyclic lactone (mectin). This means Strategy-T is the best choice of wormer to use in a rotational program as an alternative to the "mectin” products.
Track record of safety
Extensive internal and independent trials have proven the safety and efficacy of Strategy-T. Safety has been proven in different age groups and life stages of horses including foals, pregnant mares and breeding stallions.
Strategy-T is in a palatable vanilla flavoured paste making it easy to administer.
When to use Strategy-T?
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, 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 Virbac New Zealand.
Worms can develop resistance to worming compounds. Once this occurs, the wormer loses its effectiveness and the horse can remain infected with worms even while being treated regularly. In order to avoid or slow the development and spread of resistance the following rotational strategy is recommended.
