Protects against worm related disease

Every horse faces a daily challenge from parasites in the environment and whilst not every horse will show signs of infection, if left untreated the burden of internal parasites such as worms and bots can cause disease and colic. Some of these diseases and colic can be life threatening to your horse. To maintain health and vitality while also reducing the risk of illness you should have your horse on an appropriate worming program. Parasites of major concern are small redworms, tapeworms and ascarids. Regular worm treatments with a broad-spectrum product such as EQUIMAX® LV will significantly reduce the risk of disease and colic attributable to worms and help to maintain the health and vitality of your horse.

Track record of safety

Extensive internal and independent trials have proven the safety and efficacy of EQUIMAX® LV. Safety has been proven in different age groups and life stages of horses including foals, pregnant mares and breeding stallions.

Treats horses weighing up to 700kg

Most horse owners underestimate their horse’s weight by as much as 20%. Underdosing due to underestimating weight can leave horses unprotected against worm related disease and may lead to resistance. A single tube of EQUIMAX® LV treats up to 700kg bodyweight, covering 99% of horses.

Palatable flavour

EQUIMAX® LV is given orally and is readily accepted by most horses.

Easy to use ergonomic syringe

EQUIMAX® LV is presented in a unique syringe that is designed to fit more comfortably into the hand. It has a shorter plunger - making it easier to use for people with small hands, and curved finger grips that make it more comfortable to grip. Additionally, the dose markings can be easily seen by both left and right-handed users.
