FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT EQUIMAX PASTE:
Can I use Equimax¶© in pregnant mares?
Yes Equimax¶© can be used in mares at all stages of pregnancy. Pregnant mares should be treated as normal during their pregnancy taking care not to stress them during treatment. Mares should be wormed two weeks prior to their expected foaling date. Once a mare has foaled, the mare and foal should both be wormed starting from when the foal is six weeks old.
When should I start worming my foal?
Equimax¶© is safe to use in young foals. Pregnant mares should be treated as normal during their pregnancy taking care not to stress them during treatment. Mares should be wormed two weeks prior to their expected foaling date. Once a mare has foaled, the mare and foal should both be wormed starting from when the foal is six weeks old. Young horses need to be treated differently to older horses because they are at risk of mectin resistant ascarids. Ascarids appear to be the worm developing resistance to mectins. Generally ascarids are not found in horses over two years of age as horses seem to develop a natural immunity to these worms as they mature. Horses under two should be wormed every six weeks with Equimax¶© Elevation. Once a horse turns two they should be then put on the Equimax/Strategy-T¶© rotation program, however Equimax¶© Elevation is safe to use in horses of all ages if you wish to.
Can I use Equimax¶© in my stallion?
Equimax¶© can be safely used in breeding stallions at any time without adversely affecting their fertility.
How often should I worm my horse?
How often horses are wormed depends on the propertyƒ??s management system. It is ideal to use the minimum number of treatments possible in a year, as over-worming can lead to resistance. Depending on a number of factors, some horse owners will need to worm more often than others. Where there are large numbers of horses kept close together and/ or horses are frequently moving on and off a property, there will be a greater need for worm control. This is because these horses will be at the greatest risk of contamination. Horses in these situations, generally on studs or agistment properties, will need to be wormed every six to eight weeks. It may be possible, where there are low stocking densities, to worm horses less often. The use of paddock management procedures like manure removal, paddock rotation and grazing with other species will also help lower contamination pressure. All horses should be wormed at least once every 3 months regardless of the conditions in which they are kept. All horses on a property should be wormed at the same time. New horses should be quarantined and wormed before coming onto the property. If you are unsure about what drenching interval is right for your situation please consult your vet or local Virbac area manager.
What is rotation and why should I be doing it?
Appropriate rotation should be taken into account to help prevent or slow the development of resistance. It is recommended to practise rotation of wormers to help prevent or slow the development of resistance. Products should be rotated yearly with one active being used for an entire year and then switching to a different active for the next year. Strategy-T¶© and Equimax contain completely different actives so make excellent rotation partners. During a Strategy-T¶© year, Equimax needs to be included twice, as Strategy-T¶© does not treat bots. Bots must be treated at the end of autumn and the beginning of spring.
Why is it important for me to accurately estimate my horses weight?
Most people underestimate a horseƒ??s weight by as much as 20%. Underestimating a horseƒ??s weight can lead to underdosing. Giving a horse less than the required dose of wormer can leave them at risk of worm-related disease as potentially worms will be left untreated within the horse. Underdosing can also encourage the development of resistance in your horses by exposing the worms to sub-lethal doses of wormer. It is therefore vitally important to correctly estimate your horsesƒ?? weight when deciding on the correct dose of wormer to give them. It is in fact preferable to give horses a slight overdose rather than an underdose. There are several methods for finding out a horseƒ??s weight, the most accurate obviously being a set of scales. As most horse owners to not have easy access to horse scales, there are several other methods that horse owners can use to get a good estimate of their horsesƒ?? weight. The use of the weight estimation formula will give a reasonably good estimation of most horsesƒ?? weight. The formula is:
Another method that can be used to estimate weight is by using one of the commercially available weight tapes. Unfortunately some of these tapes are far more accurate than others so it is a good idea to calibrate the tape using the formula first to check that it is measuring accurately. Weight tapes are also not suitable to use in immature horses as they have a different body composition to older animals.
Can I use Equimax¶© on an animal other than a horse?
Equimax¶© is registered for use in horses which means it may be safely used in horses. The use of this product in any other species would be considered ƒ??off label usageƒ?�. Products should not be used outside of their registered label claims without first consulting a veterinarian (if at all). Variation in metabolisms between different species mean that dose rates can vary quite widely and that some species may be far more sensitive than others making products dangerous or even potentially fatal to those animals. It is for this reason that ƒ??off label dosage" should only be conducted under the supervision of a veterinarian.
