- Therapeutic Class:
Ivermectin is a drug mixture of two structurally semisynthetic lactones that is used in veterinary medicine as an anthelmintic, boticide, acaricide, and insecticide. Ivermectin has a broad spectrum of activity against intestinal and insect parasites, and kills migrating larvae.1 Ivermectin is widely prescribed by veterinarians in all horse deworming programs because of its efficacy.
Ivermectin is known to provide effective broad spectrum control of bots, habronema, ascarids, strongyles, thread worms, pinworms, tape worms, lung worms, and is also effective against the filaria of Onchocerca, larvae of habronema, and arterial larvae stages of strongyles.
Praziquantel is an antiparasitic drug typically used to control tapeworms (Anoplocephala perfoliata) in horses. In formulations labeled for use in horses, praziquantel is typically combined with other anthelmintic deworming drugs such as ivermectin.
Swelling and itching reactions after treatment with ivermectin have occurred in horses with heavy infections of neck threadworm microfilariae,1 and some reports of colic after praziquantel administration have occurred in horses that had very high tapeworm loads.2
Since equine dewormers have been known to be toxic to dogs and cats, cleaning of barn aisles, wash-racks, etc. is recommended after administration, particularly in operations in which dogs and/or cats are known to be present.
In combination, Ivermectin 2% / Praziquantel 14% 1000 ml by NexGen provides a comprehensive anthelmintic/deworming solution for your equines.
