Product Description

Equinox Orange Tube is a broad spectrum benzimidazole (BZ) group wormer with a wide safety margin for use in horses.

Equinox - Orange Tube contains oxfendazole which interferes with the metabolic pathways of intestinal parasites and sterilises worm eggs within 24 hours of dosing thereby reducing contamination of pastures.

It's ideal as an alternative wormer in a rotational worming program

Equinox - Orange Tube controls and treats:

  • Ascarids
  • Pinworms
  • Hairworms
  • Large Mouth Stomach Worms
  • Large Strongyles
  • Susceptible Small Strongyles

Equinox - Orange Tube does NOT treat or control bots or Tapeworms

Directions for use:

All horses and particularly mares, foals and yearlings should be included in a regular parasite control program. Because reinfection is common, treatment must be repeated routinely for effective control.

Consult Your Veterinarian for a control program to meet your specific needs

Pack size:

Single syringe which will treat up to a 600kg horse.

Dosage:

Dose orally at the recommended rate of 0.2mg/kg abamectin. Each marking on the syringe plunger will deliver sufficient paste to treat 50kg bodyweight.

A single dose of Equinox - Orange Tube will kill up to 88% of migrating 4th stage Strongylus Vulgaris (Blood worm) larvae. A second dose given 48 hours after the first will kill up to 96% of the larvae. This is a most important feature and exclusive to oxfendazole when used at the dose of 10mg/kg

For horses carrying a heavy worm burden at the start of a worm control program this 2 dose regime will reduce the risk of colic and also the arterial damage that colic causes.

Giving by mouth:

Turn the ring on the plunger to the appropriate bodyweight setting. Insert the syringe into the side of your horse's mouth in the gap between the front and back teeth.

Advance the plunger as far as it will go depositing the paste on the rear of the tongue. Immediatley raise your horse's head for a few seconds to ensure the full dose has been swallowed.

If there is any paste remaining, replace the cap on the syringe and store at room temperature until needed again. For hygiene reasons, it is not advisable to use the same syringe on a different horse.

Alternatively - mix the paste in with your horse's feed.

Features:

  • Equinox - Orange Tube has a wide safety margin and is safe to use in foals, yearlings, stallions and pregnant mares provided these animals are handled with proper care.
  • Equinox is safe even at very high dose levels

Equinox - Orange Tube is great value for money giving maximum benefit at a minimum cost.
Equinox - Orange Tube is proudly Australian made and owned.
