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:

JW Bad Cuz
maxine r.
A year of searching for the Jw Bad Cuz.

My bull terrier x loved these balls but unfortunately lost both of his mid last year. After a year of searching, I finally found them on this site and got him a bad cuz and a good cuz.
They arrived quickly and he is enjoying playing with them.

Quality harness!

I have searched far and wide to find a quality harness in South Africa that has a front clip / two-point attachment. This Halti harness is fantastic!
Thank you Pet Plus for providing quality products like this and such speedy delivery.

Love this calendar

I think this is a brilliant and fun concept for the fur babies. It's the first year I am doing it, but I'm sure they will enjoy it alot.

Good product

Very happy with this product. Perfect snack for my bunnies. They just love it.
