  • Unlock the knurled ring by making 1/4 turn and slide the knurled ring up the plunger shaft so that the side nearest the barrel is at the appropriate weight marking 
  • Turn the knurled ring 1/4 turn to lock in place
  • Remove the plastic cap from the tip of the nozzle
  • Make sure the horse's mouth does not contain feed
  • Insert the syringe into the side of the horse's mouth in the gap between the front and back teeth 
  • Advance the plunger as far as it will go, depositing the medication on the rear of the tongue 
  • Immediately raise the horse's head for a few seconds after dosing to ensure the full dose has been swallowed 

Note

  • Resolution of summer sores involving extensive tissue changes may require other appropriate therapy in conjunction with treatment with EQUIMEC Paste

Suggested Parasite Control Program

  • All horses should be included in a regular parasite control program with particular attention paid to mares, foals and yearlings 
  • Foals should be treated initially at 6-8 weeks of age, and routine treatment repeated as appropriate 
  • EQUIMEC is highly effective against gastrointestinal, cultaneous and pulmonary nematodes and bots of horses of all ages
  • With its broad spectrum, EQUIMEC is well suited to be the major product in a parasite control program 
  • Because reinfection is common, treatment must be repeated routinely for effective control
