How does Equest Pramox Oral Gel for Horses and Ponies work?
The active ingredients in Equest Pramox Oral Gel for Horses and Ponies are moxidectin and praziquantel. These substances each target different worms and they work by attaching to the parasite and intercepting nerve function. Through doing this, they paralyze 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 moxidectin 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.
