Equest® Plus Tape

Long Acting Horse Wormer & Boticide Gel

Expand All
  • Description:

    • Equest® Plus Tape contains moxidectin and praziquantel, sufficient to treat a horse of up to 575 kg.
    • Controls tapeworm, bots and gastrointestinal roundworms including adult and encysted stages and benzimidazole resistant strains of small strongyles.
    • Long acting: The Egg Reappearance Period (ERP) for Equest® Plus Tape is at least 14 weeks, which means that recontamination of the pasture by strongyle eggs is significantly reduced during this period.
    • Unique gel formulation that dissolves rapidly on the tongue, aiding compliance.
    • A dial-up syringe is designed with a narrow barrel to allow easy access into the side of the horse’s mouth to deliver the right dose every time.
