Small strongyles including those resistant to some benzimidazole class compounds (adults and fourth-stage larvae): Cyathostomum spp., Cylicocyclus spp., Cylicostephanus spp., Cylicodontophorus spp.
Pinworms (adults and fourth-stage larvae): Oxyuris equi.

Largemouth stomach worms (adults): Habronema muscae.
Neck threadworms (microfilariae): Onchocerca spp.
Bots (oral and gastric stages): Gastrophilus spp.
Lungworms (adults and fourth-stage larvae): Dictyocaulus arnfieldi.
Intestinal threadworms (adults): Strongyloides westeri.
Summer sores caused by Habronema and Draschia spp. cutaneous third-stage larvae.

Dosage and Administration: One (1) syringe contains sufficient paste to treat one (1) 1,250 lb. horse at the recommended dose rate of 91 mcg ivermectin per lb. (200 mcg/kg) of body weight. Each weight marking on the syringe plunger delivers enough paste to treat 250 lbs. of body weight.

1. While holding the plunger, turn the knurled ring on the plunger one-quarter (1/4) turn to the left and slide it so the side nearest the barrel is at the prescribed weight marking.
2. Lock the ring.
3. Make sure that horse's mouth contains no feed.
4. Remove the cover from the tip of the syringe.
5. Insert the syringe tip into the horse's mouth at the space between the teeth.
6. Depress the plunger as far as it will go, depositing paste on the back of the tongue.
7. Immediately raise the horse's head for a few seconds after dosing.

Parasite Control Program: All horses should be included in a regular parasite control program. Foals should be treated initially at 6 to 8 weeks of age, and routine treatment repeated as appropriate. Consult a veterinarian for a control program to meet your specific needs. EQVALAN® Paste is highly effective against gastro-intestinal nematodes and bots of horses. Regular treatment will reduce the chances of verminous arteritis caused by S. vulgaris.

Safety: EQVALAN® Paste may be used in horses of all ages including mares at any stage of pregnancy. Stallions may be treated without adversely affecting their fertility.
Consult a veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism.

Caution(s): EQVALAN® Paste has been formulated specifically for use in horses only. This product should not be used in other animal species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may result. Refrain from smoking and eating when handling. Wash hands after use. Avoid contact with eyes. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children.
Ivermectin and excreted residues may adversely affect aquatic organisms. Do not contaminate ground water. Dispose of container in approved landfill or by incineration.

Note to User: Swelling and itching reactions after treatment with EQVALAN® Paste have occurred in horses carrying heavy infections of neck threadworm microfilariae (Onchocera sp.). These reactions were most likely the result of microfilariae dying in large numbers. Symptomatic treatment may be advisable. Consult a veterinarian should any such reactions occur.
Healing of summer sores involving extensive tissue changes may require other appropriate therapy in conjunction with treatment with EQVALAN® Paste. Re-infection, and measures for its prevention should also be considered. Consult a veterinarian if the condition does not improve.

Warning(s): Do not use in horses intended for food purposes. Presentation: 0.21 oz. (6.08 g) individual syringes.
