What is Equest Oral Gel for Horses and Ponies?

Equest Oral Gel for Horses and Ponies is an effective dewormer that works against a number of infestations including roundworms and encysted small redworms. It treats parasites in both adult and larval stages to offer reliable protection to your horse.

Suitable for use on horses up to 700kg in body weight, the treatment is recommended in both summer and winter to maintain year-round protection from worm infestations. It’s long-lasting, with one dose remaining active for up to 13 weeks. Equest Pramox Oral Gel for Horses and Ponies should be used in the spring and autumn. 

The gel comes in an easy-to-use syringe for simple administration and should be taken by your horse orally. It only requires a single dose to kill any worm infestations and is suitable for pregnant or lactating horses.

This medication is specifically for horses. If you are looking to deworm another animal then you should seek a suitable alternative.

How does Equest Oral Gel for Horses and Ponies work?

The active ingredient in Equest Oral Gel for Horses and Ponies is moxidectin, which attaches to the parasite and intercepts nerve function. Through doing this, it paralyses the worm and it can then be passed out of your horse through their stool. However, you may not notice the passed worms, as they can often be destroyed by the bowels.

The active ingredient in this medication is also less toxic to beetles and other insects than ivermectin is (another common worming medicine). Beetles and insects are key for helping to break up dung, so if this is not collected then pastures can remain cleaner and healthier with this medicine than ivermectin-based alternatives.

Instructions for Equest Oral Gel for Horses and Ponies

When you receive the medication, it’s important to read and understand the dosage instructions. The strength and dose of the medicine will depend on the size of your horse and the exact details of their condition.

The medicine should be given orally. One syringe is sufficient at treating horses up to 700kg in body weight. If your horse weighs more than this, they may require additional syringes.
