The first syringe division delivers sufficient paste to treat 100kg of bodyweight. Each subsequent syringe division delivers sufficient paste to treat 50kg of bodyweight. The syringe delivers sufficient paste to treat 700kg bodyweight at the recommended dose rate.

The horse’s weight should be accurately determined to ensure use of the correct dose of product.

Before administration adjust the syringe to the calculated dosage by setting the ring on the plunger.

For animal treatment only.  Not to be used in foals under two weeks of age.  Some horses carrying heavy infection of Onchocerca microfilariae have experienced reactions with swelling and itching after treatment. It is assumed to be the result of death of large numbers of microfilariae.  These signs resolve within a few days but symptomatic treatment may be advisable.  Equimax Oral paste for Horses has been formulated specifically for use in horses. Dogs and cats may be adversely affected by the concentration of ivermectin in this product, if they are allowed to ingest spilled paste or have access to used syringes.  As ivermectin is extremely dangerous to fish and aquatic life, treated animals should not have direct access to surface water and ditches during treatment.  Wash hands after use.  Avoid eye contact.  Do not smoke or eat while handling the product.  Horses may be slaughtered for human consumption only after 35 days from the last treatment.
