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.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Equest Pramox Horse Wormer, including answers from our team.

Equest Pramox use

Toby

Hi, i'm moving my horse to a new stables and they have requested Pramox to be administered on arrival. My horse was last wormed with Pramox, is it safe to administer twice in a row, as I've heard horror stories!

  • VioVet Staff

Hello,

Thank you for your question.

Ideally we would advise against it unless the worm count results have come back high, however it is normal protocol for yards to ask new arrivals to worm with an all-round wormer such as Equest Pramox. As this will be a one-time situation where you will be administering the wormer again it should be fine.

To ease your concerns, you can use Quick Fix to help the gut and complete a worm count a few weeks after, just to make sure it has worked. If you can, see if the yard owner would be happy for you to use something like Equimax instead; this will still cover for tapeworm, redworm and bots without being as 'harsh'.

I hope this helps.

Stomach ulcers

Rachel Matthews

Can this wormer be used on horses currently being treated for stomach ulcers?

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Rachel

Thank you for your question.

We do not recommend worming a horse whilst being treated for stomach ulcers.

We would recommend using Protexin quick fit, but always check with your vet first.

Hope that helps,

VioVet.

Mixing with hard feed

Emma Farthing

  • VioVet customer since 2017
  • From: Durham, United Kingdom

Hi, my mare hates being wormed and honestly I'm dreading it. Can I add this with her speedibeet and course mix or does it have to be given separately?
Thanks

  • VioVet Staff

If she will eat her feed with the wormer in it then thats perfectly acceptable. Just make sure she eats all of it and so gets the correct dose. You may even need to add something like molasses too to disguise the taste.

Worming whilst horse has diarrhea

Tina p

My horse had diarrheah when I wormed with equest pramox would it have worked

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Tina,

No it's quite normal for this to happen as some wormers can upset the stomach when they're being absorbed. You wouldn't need to worm again. If the diarrhoea persists you might want to give a probiotic to help re-populate the gut with friendly bacteria.

I hope this helps.

Equest pramox

Mrs Macdonald

  • VioVet customer since 2013
  • From: Highland, United Kingdom

Is it too early in the year to dose with pramox

  • VioVet Staff

Hi there,

Ideally you need to worm with Moxidectin (found in Pramox) between November and Feb to treat for encysted redworm, so it would be fine to do it now.

I hope this helps.

Lung worm

Karen Hare

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: West Midlands, United Kingdom

Will Equest pramox get rid of lung worm? Have just bought a new horse and vet thinks she has lung worm, we haven't got much history for her but believe she could have been kept with donkeys and cattle,

  • VioVet Staff

Lungworm are susceptible to the Macrocyclic Lactones such as ivermectin and moxidectin. Equest Pramox contains moxidectin so is effective against lungworm. It also contains Praziquantel effective against tapeworms which is a good idea for this time of year. However if you do not wish to treat for tapeworm at the moment you can use just Equest which is moxidectin only.

  • 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.

Equest Paramox v Panacur Guard

Field 1

Do you need to keep horses in when administering either Equest Paramox or Panacure Guard 5 day wormer??
Do they kill the worm in situ or just expel the worms.

  • VioVet Staff

There's no need to keep your horses stabled while using these products. It used to be common practice, although nowadays it is not thought to be necessary. However, if you rotate your pastures, you can keep your horses on the same field for 2/3 days after worming, before moving onto fresh pasture and resting the original.

Equest Pramox contains two active ingredients, moxidectin to target roundworm (including encysted small redworm larvae) and bots, and praziquantel to target tapeworm. Moxidectin causes flaccid paralysis and starvation of the parasites. Parasites in the lumen of the gut will be passed out either dead, or in a paralysed state which they will not survive. Encysted redworm larvae in the lining of the gut are not passed out, they die in situ and are broken down and absorbed. Praziquantel causes spastic paralysis of tapeworm, which means that they go rigid and can no longer move, or hold their position in the gut. If they are not dead when they are passed out, they will soon be.

Panacur contains a chemical called fenbendazole, which kills worms through blocking their ability to carry out vital processes such as absorbing food and excreting waste.
