Ivermectin based, Eraquell is one of the safest and most effective horse worming treatments on the market. Eraquell destroys and controls both immature and adult gastro-intestinal Roundworms, Lungworms and Bots. No effect on Tapeworms.
For the treatment of nematode and arthropod infestations, due to adult and immature roundworms and bots in horses:
Strongylus vulgaris (adult and arterial larvae)
Strongylus edentatus (adult and L4 tissue larval stages)
Strongylus equinus (adult and L4 larval stage)
Triodontophorus spp. (adult)
Cyathostomum (adult and non-encysted mucosal larvae): Cylicocyclus spp., Cylicostephanus spp., Gyalocephalus spp.
Parascaris: Parascaris equorum (adult and larvae).
Oxyuris: Oxyuris equi (adult and larvae).
Trichostrongylus: Trichostrongylus axei (adult).
Gasterophilus spp. (larvae).
Care should be taken to avoid the following practices because they increase the risk of development of resistance and could ultimately result in ineffective therapy: too frequent and repeated use of anthelmintics from the same class over an extended period of time, underdosing, which may be due to underestimation of body weight, misadministration of the product, or lack of calibration of the dosing device (if any).
Suspected clinical cases of resistance to anthelmintics should be further investigated using appropriate tests (e.g. Faecal Egg Count Reduction Test). Where the results of the test(s) strongly suggest resistance to a particular anthelmintic, an anthelmintic belonging to another pharmacological class and having a different mode of action should be used.
Resistance to ivermectin has been reported in Parascaris equorum in horses. Therefore the use of this product should be based on local (regional, farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics.
The product is safe for use in stallions.
Ivermectin is EXTREMELY DANGEROUS TO FISH AND AQUATIC LIFE. Do not contaminate surface waters or ditches with the product or used container.
