Equimax is a simple and effective worming treatment that treats most major equine worms, such as Tapeworm and bots. In just one single dose, Equimax treats and controls both adult and immature gastro-intestinal Roundworms, Lungworms, Tapeworms and Bots. Using the powerful ingredient Ivermectin, Equimax also contains Praziquantel for one of the most powerful and effective Tapeworm treatment on the market.

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

45 Out with worms
Verified Purchase

By on 6 October 2021

This product was readily accepted by both horses that were treated. I do worm counts so, as both horses are less than 50epg the wormer was only for tapeworm!
I did find the plunger a tad too long for my hand.
I cannot comment on the effectiveness as I have not yet tested for tapeworm.

Q & A

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

14 April 2021 at 4:17pm



I am worried that my pony has had too much Equimax, as the stopper did not stop the plunger at the correct amount and the whole syringe was accidentally given...do I need to do anything, or will the wormer be ok in large dose. Thanks

  • VioVet Staff

It is never advised to overdose with a medication but the ingredients within Equimax are very safe. In fact the datasheet states that during testing of the product it was used in foals from 2 weeks of age with doses
up to 5 times the recommended dosage (which) showed no adverse reactions.
If you notice any problems then I strongly advise seeking veterinary attention, but based on this it is unlikely for any issues to occur.

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?
