When Merck, Merial's mother company discovered the ivermectin molecule, it revolutionized parasite control. EQVALAN is one of the reasons why. This class leading dewormer offers proven, broad-spectrum efficacy against more parasites than any other single ingredient dewormer available through veterinarians.1
EQVALAN is registered to control 69 species and stages of:
Controlling parasites is an essential health care measure for your horse. Damage can take place when parasites do any of the following:
- Attach to tissue in your horse and consume blood
- Migrate through intestinal walls to nearby organs and vessels
- Block passages in the digestive tract or arteries that supply blood to the gut
Virtually all horses have parasites, and they shed the eggs and infective larvae in their manure. While they’re grazing, horses ingest these early stage parasites, and the cycle begins. That’s why regular parasite control is so important. Infections can play a major role in verminous colic, enteritis, respiratory tract disease, dermatitis, and poor growth and development. Inappropriate treatment or failure to treat can result in poor performance, impaired health, even death.
