Dosage and administration
EQVALAN Paste for Horses is given orally at the recommended dose rate of 0.2 mg ivermectin per kg of bodyweight. Each syringe delivers 120 mg ivermectin sufficient to treat 600 kg of bodyweight. Parasite control program All horses and donkeys should be included in a regular parasite control program with particular attention being paid to mares foals and yearlings. Foals should be treated initially at 6 to 8 weeks of age and routine treatment repeated as appropriate. EQVALAN Paste for Horses is highly effective against gastro-intestinal cutaneous and pulmonary nematodes and bots of horses. Regular treatment will reduce the chances of verminous arteritis and colic caused by Strongylus vulgaris. With its broad spectrum the product is well suited to be the major medication in parasite control programs and is well suited to be the major component in a rotational program. Dosing instructions Each weight marking on the syringe plunger will deliver sufficient paste to treat 100kg bodyweight. Unlock the knurled ring by making ¼ turn and slide the knurled ring up the plunger shaft so that the side nearest the barrel is at the prescribed weight marking. Turn the knurled ring ¼ turn to lock in place. Remove the plastic cap from the tip of the nozzle. Make sure the horse`s mouth contains no feed. Insert the syringe into the horse`s mouth at the interdental space. Advance the plunger as far as it will go depositing the medication on the base of the tongue. To ensure administration of a correct dose body weight should be determined as accurately as possible; accuracy of the dosing device should be checked

Contra-indications warnings etc
Some horses carrying heavy infection of Onchocerca microfilariae have experienced oedema and pruritus following dosing assumed to be the result of death of large numbers of microfilariae. These signs resolve within a few days but symptomatic treatment may be advisable. EQVALAN Paste for Horses has been formulated specifically for use in horses and donkeys only. Dogs or cats may be adversely affected by the concentration of ivermectin in this product if they are allowed to ingest spilled paste or have access to used syringes. 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. 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 macrocyclic lactones (which includes ivermectin) has been reported in Parascaris equorum in horses in a number of countries within the EU. Therefore the use of this product should be based on local (regional farm) epidemiological information about susceptibility of gastro-intestinal nematodes and recommendations on how to limit further selection for resistance to anthelmintics. Do not smoke eat or drink while handling the product. Wash hands after use. This product may cause skin and eye irritation. Therefore the user should avoid contact of the product with the skin and the eyes. In the case of contact rinse immediately with plenty of water. In the case of accidental ingestion or eye irritation after contact seek medical advise immediately and show the package insert or the label to the physician. For animal treatment only.
