The Worma paste contains two different classes of wormers to control sensitive strains of adult and immature forms of large roundworms (Parascaris equorum), pinworm (Oxyuris equi), large strongyles (Strongylus spp), adult stomach hairworm (Trichonstrongylus axei) and adult stomach worm (Habronema micro stoma) and small strongyles (Cyathostomes). Also kills tissue stages of Strongylus edentatus and aids in the control of migrating stages of Strongylus vulgaris with a corresponding reduction in arterial lesions.
Directions for use: A complete syringe treats a 600kg body weight horse. The plunger is calibrated in 100kg weight increments which each deliver 5.4g of paste. Adjust the locking ring to the required body weight and depress plunger. Ensure paste is administered on the rear of the tongue and hold horse’s head raised for a few seconds after dosing to ensure the paste is swallowed. Two doses given two days apart gives enhanced efficacy against migrating strongyles and will decrease the incidence of associated colic.

In combination with good pasture and herd management practices, a rotational worming strategy can help to combat the development of worm resistance to anthelminthic drugs and reduce the overall amount of worming treatments that are required. Rotational worming involves rotating the class of active ingredient in the wormer being used on an annual basis, most commonly rotating between a macrocylic lactone (mectin) product and a benzimadazole product. To determine a suitable worming strategy for your horse, talk to your equine veterinarian or ask a Pet Circle vet for more information.
