Is this produce safe for 8 month old foals?

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Michelle,

Equimax is safe for use in foals older than 2 weeks old, so yes your 8 month old is old enough to use the product. More information on Equimax can be found on the data sheet linked here:

I hope this helps.

Is Equimax safe for broodmares ?


Is it safe for Broodmares

  • VioVet Staff

Hello Sam,

Thank you for your question.

Yes Equimax is safe for pregnant and/or lactating animals.

In winter, it is recommended that you target encysted small redworm
larvae, which do not show up on these faecal egg counts. Target these in
winter with a single dose of either a moxidectin product or a five day course of a fenbendazole product to prevent mass emergence in spring.

Hope this helps!

Does this treat for pinworm?

  • VioVet Staff

In theory the active ingredient in Equimax, Ivermectin, is effective against pinworm. However pinworm are found right at the end of the gastro-intestinal tract in the rectum. When you worm your horse most of the Ivermectin is absorbed higher up in the gut and does not reach the rectum in quantities high enough to be effective against pinworm. I would suggest using a Pyrantel based wormer such as Pyratape P or Strongid P at double the dose for treatment of pinworm.

Does equimax gel treat red worm

  • VioVet Staff

Yes, Equimax treats adult red worm which is fine for most of the year. However it does not treat encysted redworm. Redworm larvae become encysted in the wall of the intestine over the winter. You should therefore treat with Equest or Panacur over the winter which are effective against encysted red worm.

Combined wormer

Tim Hawkes

  • VioVet customer since 2012
  • From: Surrey, United Kingdom

I've been advised based on worm egg count to use combined wormer, is this suitable for this time of year?

  • VioVet Staff

Yes Equimax is a good choice for this time of year. It contains Ivermectin and Praziquantel and will treat redworm and tapeworm. It would be a good idea to treat with Equest or Panacur in late December for encysted red worm larvae.

What worms this product covers

Janet Turner

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: , United Kingdom

does this product also cover red worm ?... can see this does cover roundworm, lungworm, Bots and tapeworm but for redworm would I need a different type of wormer, thanks

  • VioVet Staff

Ivermectin (one of the active ingredients of Equimax) is effective against adult red worm. However during the winter redworm larvae become encysted in the wall of the intestine. Ivermectin is not effective against the encysted redworm so you should use Equest (Moxidectin) or Panacur (Fenbendazole) over the winter to treat encysted redworm. However at this time of year the larvae will not yet be encysted so Equimax is ideal as it will treat tapeworm also.

Can i turn my horse out after giving them Equimax?

  • VioVet Staff

Yes that is fine. There is no evidence to suggest that keeping horses in after worming is beneficial. The best way to control worms is to allow normal turn-out routines and poo pick the paddocks regularly.

Which wormer is safest to use on an old pony (40+) that has not many teeth and not been on a regular worming plan?
Thank you

  • VioVet Staff

Most modern wormers are very safe and so this is not really a great concern. Having said that, Panacur is sometimes regarded as one of the mildest, least potentially toxic wormers, so you could try that. Have you tested for worm eggs on a dung sample? Some older horses need very little worming anyway?

Horse has only taken partial dose of Equimax tablets


I only managed to get my horse to eat 4 of the 6 tablets he needed. Is it best to try to get him to take the other two the next day or wait for a period, do a worm count and then if necessary use a different product?

  • VioVet Staff

I would go for your second suggestion. The lower dose might have been adequately effective. If not, you are more likely to encourage ivermectin resistant parasites by repeating the same product so soon. If an egg count demonstrates a significant mature worm infestation then a different product would be my suggestion. (Tapeworms do not show on egg counts so if you are worried about this a blood test could be done. Tapes are not usually a big concern and the lower dose given might well be effective for them anyway - they are easily killed off by the praziquantel in the wormer.
