What is EQUIMAX?

EQUIMAX is an FDA-approved, all-in-one dewormer that combines ivermectin and praziquantel to safely and effectively rid horses of all major internal parasites, including tapeworms, in a single dose.
For:
Horses (over 4weeks of age)

Benefits:
Safely and effectively rids horses of all major internal parasites including tapeworms
Given as a single dose

How it works:
EQUIMAX combines ivermectin and praziquantel. Ivermectin works by disrupting nerve impulses in parasites. It binds to glutamate-gated chloride ion channels which occur in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells which leads to an increase in the permeability of the cell membrane, thereby paralyzing and killing the invaders. Praziquantel works by damaging the parasite's skin internally so the parasite disintegrates and is removed by the horse's immune system.

Cautions:
EQUIMAX should not be used in animals other than horses and ponies, as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may occur. Ivermectin and excreted ivermectin residues may adversely affect aquatic organisms. Do not contaminate ground or surface water. Dispose of the syringe in an approved landfill or by incineration.


More Information:
Brand Name
Equimax Paste (Bimeda)

Active Ingredient(s):
Ivermectin (1.87%), Praziquantel (14.03%)

What is this product used for:
Equimax is an FDA approved, all in one dewormer that combines ivermectin and praziquantel to safely and effectively rid horses of all major parasites, including tapeworms, in a single dose.

Availability:
Equimax Paste is a non-prescription (OTC) product.

How this product should be used:
The content of a single oral syringe is sufficient to treat horses up to 1,320 lbs at the recommended dose rate of 91mcg per lb. Each weight marking on the oral syringe plunger delivers enough paste to treat 220 lb of body weight. All horses should be included in a regular parasite control program with particular attention being paid to mares (including pregnant mares at any stage of pregnancy), foals and yearlings. Foals should be treated initially at 4 weeks of age, and routine treatment repeated as appropriate. Equimax Paste effectively controls gastrointestinal nematodes and bots of horses. Regular treatment will reduce the chance of colic caused by the tapeworm A. perfoliata and verminous arteritis caused by S. Vulgaris.

What are the side effects:
Swelling and itching reactions after treatment with Equimax Paste have occurred in horses carrying heavy infections of neck threadworm. These reactions were most likely the result of microfilariae dying in large numbers. Symptomatic treatment may be advisable. Healing of summer sores involving extensive tissue changes may require other appropriate therapy in conjunction with treatment with Equimax Paste. Reinfection, and measures for its prevention, should also be considered. Consult your veterinarian if the condition does not improve.

What special precautions are there:
Equimax Paste is for use in horses and ponies only. This product should not be used in other animal species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may result. Do not use in horses intended for food purposes. This product is not intended for use in humans. Do not smoke or eat when handling this product. Wash hands after use. Avoid contact with eyes. Do not contaminate ground or surface water. Dispose of the syringe in an approved landfill or by incineration.

In the event of an overdose:
Contact your veterinarian or veterinary emergency room.

How should I store this product:
Store this product at room temperature. Keep out of the reach of children and animals.

Answer: 
One of the ingredients on this medication is ivermectin, which is considered to be effective against all stages of horse bots and used as part of a routine parasite control program because it provides bot control throughout the season for this type of infection.
In temperate areas, it is believed that most animals are infected by the end of summer.

Answer: 
You're asking a good question. The medication won't freeze as a result of being in transit. Your product could freeze, however, if after delivery it remains on your doorstep or in the mailbox for a significant period of time. If you are home within 2 or 3 hours of delivery, there should be no issues. Please remember we have a 100% happy guarantee if you are ever dissatisfied.

Answer: 
Do the worms look like little grains of rice (or like sesame seeds when they are dry)? If so, your kitty has tapeworms, and we recommend Tapeworm Tabs for Cats: http://www.1800petmeds.com/Tape+Wor...

It is also important to eliminate fleas on your kitty because your cat can get tapeworms from swallowing fleas.
