Description

Equest Pramox contains moxidectin and is one of the few wormers licensed to control the important encysted larval stages of small red worms. It has a long period of anti-worm activity after the dose has been given (13 weeks) and so helps to reduce pasture contamination. Equest Pramox is also less toxic to the natural beetles and other insects which help to break up the dung on the pasture, compared with ivermectin-based products. This means that pastures tend to remain cleaner and healthier where the dung is not collected from the field.

Equest Pramox also contains praziquantel which is provided for tapeworm control. Equest Pramox, in a single dose, controls the potentially dangerous small red worms, all other roundworms including pinworm, bots and all three types of tapeworm. One dose can be given every three months to protect the health of your horse, providing exceptionally good control of all these major parasites.

The presence of worms can be checked in your horse using a Worm Testing Kit.

Equest Horse Wormer is also available.

Winter Wormer for Donkeys

Ruth

What winter wormer is the best to use for donkeys please

  • VioVet Staff

Unfortunately Equest or Equest Pramox is not licensed for use in donkeys. This may be safe but you would need a written prescription from your vet to purchase it with us.

It is advised to cover encysted redworm during winter and only Moxidectin (Equest) or a 5 day Fenbendazole course (Panacur) will do this. Panacur is licensed for use in donkeys so we advise ordering a 225ml bottle of this to do a 5 day course in your donkey.

Need some help :)

My mare has a very itchy tail, do I do a pinworm test first or is it ok to give this even if she doesn’t have any worms? Or should I test first to be on the safe side? Does it harm them if I do give it to her and she ends up not having any worms to start with? Thank you 😊

  • VioVet Staff

This product will cover pinworm but it is not advised to worm if you are unsure if worms are present in the first place. It is also not the first choice of wormer for pinworm. This is because repeat worming has been shown to increase the chance of resistant worms occuring in your horse, that is worms that are resistant to normal worming medications. Pinworm is also a slightly more challenging worm to clear and requires good stable hygeine as well as repeat dosing sometimes.

I recommend using a pinworm test kit, such as the Westgate Labs Pinworm Test Kit. If you get a positive result then a double dose of Pyrantel (e.g. Strongid-P) or a 5 day course of Fenbendazole (Panacur Guard) is usually advised. Reinfection occurs through grooming of the rear and from around the stable so it is important to clean these areas ideally daily until a few days after treatment is finished.

Safe for cushings pony?

DD

Is Equest pramox safe for 34 yr old , cushings , slightly laminitic pony ?

  • VioVet Staff

There are no contraindications in the datasheet for using Equest Pramox in a cushingoid and laminitic 34 year old pony. I recommend using it only alongside a good worming plan though as advised by your vet. We have a useful worming guide linked here if you need.

Equest Pramox

How long to stable horse after

HI after administering equest pramox how long do i have to leave in my horse prior to turnout on a fresh pasture.

Thanks,

  • VioVet Staff

The datasheet for this product states the following:
In order to limit the impact of moxidectin on dung fauna, and due to
insufficient data regarding environmental risk of praziquantel, horses
should not be turned out onto pasture within 3 days of treatment.

I recommend following this advice and turning out only 3 days after treatment.

Mares and young stock

Jane Cross

Can this be given to mares infoal and those with foals at foot ?
Also what age youngsters can it be used on please?

  • VioVet Staff

Equest Pramox Oral Gel has been shown to be safe for use in breeding,
pregnant and lactating mares. Administration does not adversely affect
the fertility of mares. It should not be administered to young foals less than 6.5 months of age though.

Donkey

Louise Duffy

I recently got a Donkey and was wondering if this wormer was safe for him

  • VioVet Staff

Equest Pramox is licensed for use in horses only unfortunately. It is used off license in donkeys but as this is an off license use of the medication then you will need to discuss it with your vet. You will need a written prescription from them to purchase it from us to use in your donkey.
There are many donkey licensed wormers, if you would like advice on this then please contact us on [email protected]

Equest or Equest Pramox

Equest or equest pramox?

I need to worm my horse for encysted red worms. Not sure which product is best to use as both seem to treat these. My horse has in the past had a high worm burden. Can you advise please

  • VioVet Staff

Both Equest and Equest Pramox contain moxidectin which will treat for encysted redworm. Equest Pramox also contains praziquantel which will additionally cover tapeworms. You should use normal Equest if you have recently covered tapeworms, or have had a recent negative tapeworm saliva test.

How long will opened pramox last

Suzanne

How long does equest pramox last (shelflife) once opened? My pony only needs half a syringe so can I keep the other half for the next worming time or will it go off?

  • VioVet Staff

If stored correctly then Equest Pramox is usable for up to 6 months after opening, or until the product expiry date. Whichever is sooner. We receive new stock of Equest Pramox weekly and expiry dates are extremely likely to be beyond the 6 month mark.

Mare with foal

Joely Firkins

Hi I have a mare with a 1 month old foal at foot is it safe to use?

  • VioVet Staff

Equest Pramox Oral Gel has been shown to be safe for use in breeding, pregnant and lactating mares. However it should not be used to dose the foal itself until he/she are at least 6.5 months old.

14 September 2020 at 12:13pm

Foal

Plank Ferenc

Can it be given to a 5 month old foal?

  • VioVet Staff

This product should not be administered to young foals less than 6.5 months of age. If you need specific worming advice for your foal then please contact our medicine advice team on [email protected]
