Specification

Equitape is the sister product to Equest and is used for the specific SINGLE dose control of all THREE tapeworm species. It is estimated that tapeworm infection in horses is increasing. No interference with your annual wormer rotation as Equitape is given spring and early autumn regardless of whatever other wormer is in use for roundworms. As many as 2 out of 3 horses may be infected by tapeworms. Praziquantel (the active ingredient in Equitape) has been for many years used to control tapeworms in cats dogs and even humans.

In horses with severe infections, treatment may result in mild, transient colic and loose faeces due to the destruction of the tapeworms.
Parasite resistance to a particular class of anthelmintic may develop following frequent, repeated use of an anthelmintic of that class.
