Equimax is a broad-spectrum parasiticide for horses provides effective control for all major worms of horses.

Equimax is administered orally by means of a disposable syringe at a dose rate of 200 μg of ivermectin and 1,5 mg of praziquantel per kg of body mass (1,07 g of oral paste per 100 kg body weight).

Each mass marking on the syringe plunger delivers enough paste to treat 100 kg body mass.

Please note: There is "fake" news circulating that ivermectin can help with the prevention or control of COVID-19. These articles are not to be believed and we must advise that Equimax is intended for horses, is not certified for human consumption and can be harmful to humans. Specifically some of the side-effects that may be associated with ivermectin include skin rash, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, facial or limb swelling, neurologic adverse events (dizziness, seizures, confusion), sudden drop in blood pressure, severe skin rash potentially requiring hospitalization and liver injury (hepatitis). More detailed information can be found in these articles:

Silent Whistle

I just received my Deluxe Silent whistle. This whistle is good quality but unfortunately NOT a silent whistle. One can hear the high pitch tone. The aim was to silent a dog which keeps on barking. This is not the whistle for the purpose of silencing a dog.

Effective treatment of worms and suspected giardiasis in our two dogs.
