Overview

What is Eqvalan?
Eqvalan is a horse wormer. It is used for the treatment and control of certain large and small strongyles, pinworms, roundworms (ascarids), hairworms, large-mouth stomach worms, bots, lungworms, certain summer sores, and skin lesions caused by neck threadworm microfilariae.

Who is it for?
Eqvalan is for horses only.

How does Eqvalan work?
Eqvalan contains ivermectin, an antiparasitic drug that is thought to paralyze the parasite.

Is there a generic equivalent available?
Yes, such as Ivercide. A generic paste form is also available.

How is it given?
Oral Eqvalan is administered as a liquid to horses by stomach tube or drench. Because of safety issues and the need for proper administration, it is recommended that oral Eqvalan for horses should only be administered by a veterinarian.

What results can I expect?
Eqvalan will kill certain types of adult worms, but not immature worms. Therefore, a regular deworming program needs to be determined by you and your veterinarian. Eqvalan will not reverse damage done to the stomach or intestines by the parasites.

Additional medications may be necessary for the successful treatment of summer sores.

What form(s) does it come in?
This medication comes in liquid form

What should I discuss with my veterinarian while considering Eqvalan?
Horses are susceptible to many internal parasites. Few wormers will kill all of them. Therefore, a regular deworming program needs to be determined by you and your veterinarian. This program will be based on test results showing what worms your horse may have, and the horse's age, environment, exposure to other horses, general health status, and other factors.

What should I do if I miss a dose?
Eqvalan Liquid is given in a single dose.

What is the most important information I should know?
Eqvalan is a very safe, broad-spectrum horse wormer, when used according to directions. Because of the need for proper administration, it is recommended that oral Eqvalan for horses should only be administered by a veterinarian. It needs to be used in conjunction with a broad parasite control plan.

Who should not take it?
Not for use in horses hypersensitive (allergic) to ivermectin or similar medications.

Eqvalan can be used safely in breeding animals, pregnant mares, and horses of all ages.

How is it stored?
Store at room temperature in a tight, light-resistant, childproof container. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

What should I do if I know of or suspect there has been an overdose?
may see depression, incoordination, and vision problems. If you know or suspect your horse has had an overdose, or if you observe any of these signs in your horse, contact your veterinarian immediately.
