Q & A

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

Equimax

Caroline Jones

Is equimax safe to use on foals 6 months old

  • VioVet Staff

Yes, Equimax can be given to foals from 2 weeks old.

Pinworm

Katie

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.

Redworm

Jaqui Watson

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

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.

Turnout

Catherine Hobbs

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: Warwickshire, United Kingdom

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.

Age

Mel

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

Jean

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.

Period between doses

Jan Bottomley

Hi

Can anyone tell me the time period between doses, ie once they have been dosed with this wormer, when are they next due to be wormed with another wormer, I cant find any information about this?

  • VioVet Staff

Equimax is ideal for worming in spring and autumn to cover tapeworm and a wide range of roundworm and bots.

If your horse is over 6 years old, they should have built up a natural immunity to most adult roundworm and may not need worming over summer. We would recommend that you carry out a faecal egg count to see if they need treating- it is a cheap and you can buy the kit needed here and then you send it off in a pre-paid envelope.

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.

Approach to worming has changed in recent years due to worms building a resistance to the chemicals used, so each horse would ideally be treated based on their individual needs.

We have a guide to worming your horse (with an example worming plan) if you would like to read more about the topic, and feel free to contact me for further information.
