Over 90% of all small redworm found in your horse will be encysted larvae. These will not show up on an egg count so the level of infection can be difficult to access, but because of the unique way Moxidectin (the active Ingredient in Equest) works. Equest is the only wormer licensed to control all stages of encysted small redworm in a single dose. Equest also remains in the horses system for a further 2 weeks once treated thereby reducing the horse’s risk of re-infection and pasture contamination. Equest also has a lower toxicity to dung dwelling insects than the ivermectin based wormers. This again reduces pasture contamination as these insects help clear the pastures of dung.
Wastage is also reduced due to the unique clear gel formula which melts in your horse’s mouth meaning there will be no more spat out paste.
