Uses

Moxidectin is a second-generation macrocyclic lactone of the milbemycin family. Praziquantel is a parasiticide widely used in many species for the specific control of tapeworm. For the single dose treatment of mixed cestode and nematode or arthropod infections in horses and ponies, caused by moxidectin and praziquantel sensitive strains of:

Large redworm (large strongyles):

- Strongylus vulgaris (adults)

- Strongylus edentatus (adults)

- Triodontophorus brevicauda (adults)

- Triodontophorus serratus (adults)

- Triodontophorus tenuicollis (adults)

Small redworm (small strongyles/cyathostomin) (adults and intraluminal larval stages):

- Cyathostomum spp.

- Cylicocyclus spp.

- Cylicostephanus spp.

- Cylicodontophorus spp.

- Gyalocephalus spp.

Ascarids:

- Parascaris equorum(adults)

Other roundworm species:

- Oxyuris equi (adults)

- Habronema muscae (adults)

- Strongyloides westeri (adults)

- Trichostrongylus axei (adults)

Bots:

- Gasterophilus intestinalis (L2, L3)

- Gasterophilus nasalis (L2, L3)

Tapeworm:

- Anoplocephala perfoliata

- Anoplocephala magna

- Anoplocephaloides mamillana

The egg reappearance period of small redworm is 90 days.

The product is effective against (developing) intramucosal L4 stages of small redworm (strongyles). At 8 weeks after treatment, early (hypobiotic/inhibited) EL3 stages of small redworm (strongyles) are eliminated.

The product is effective against benzimidazole resistant strains of cyathostomes.

Dosage and administration

For oral administration.

One 14.4 g syringe contains sufficient gel to treat a 700 kg horse at the recommended dose rate (0.4 mg moxidectin per kg bodyweight and 2.5 mg praziquantel per kg bodyweight). Each graduation on the calibrated syringe delivers sufficient gel to treat 25 kg bodyweight.

Use of a scale or weight tape is recommended to ensure accurate dosing. To avoid overdosing, care should be taken to accurately dose foals, especially low bodyweight foals or pony foals.

Dosing guideline

The recommended dosing interval for the control of small redworm is 13 weeks. For optimum control of bots, the product should be administered in the autumn, after the end of the fly season and before spring as the larvae may start to pupate and therefore are less sensitive to treatment.

Veterinary advice should be given on appropriate dosing programmes and stock management to achieve optimum parasite control.

Contra-indications, warnings, etc

Horses must not be slaughtered for human consumption within 64 days of treatment.

Do not administer to young foals less than 6.5 months of age.

Do not use in cases of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients.

Equest Pramox Oral Gel is formulated specifically for use in horses only. Dogs or cats may be adversely affected by the concentration of moxidectin in this product if they are allowed to ingest spilled gel or have access to used syringes.

Do not use the same syringe to treat more than one animal unless horses are running together or in direct contact with each other on the same premises.

Operator Warnings

This product may cause eye irritation, skin irritation and skin sensitisation.

Avoid direct contact with skin and eyes.

The use of protective gloves is recommended.

Do not smoke, drink or eat while handling the product.

In the event of eye contact flush the eye with copious amounts of clean water and seek medical advice.

In case of accidental ingestion, seek medical help and show the doctor the package insert.

Environmental safety

In order to limit the impact of moxidectin on dung fauna, and due to insufficient data regarding environmental risk of praziquantel, horses should not be turned out onto pasture within 3 days of treatment.
