Anthelcide EQ Paste is a paste formulation of oxibendazole, a broad-spectrum benzimidazole anthelmintic. This formulation has been developed for ease of administration. Each syringe contains 0.85 oz (24 g) of paste.
Anthelcide EQ Paste is indicated for removal and control of: large strongyles (Strongylus edentatus, S. equinus, S. vulgaris); small strongyles (species of the genera Cylicostephanus, Cylicocyclus, Cyathostomum, Triodontophorus, Cylicodontophorus, and Gyalocephalus); large roundworms (Parascaris equorum); pinworms (Oxyuris equi) including various larval stages; and threadworms (Strongyloides westeri).
Anthelcide EQ is contraindicated in severely debilitated horses or horses suffering from infectious disease, toxemia, or colic.
Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism.
Keep Out of Reach of Children.
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
The dosage of oxibendazole is 10 mg/kg (2.2 lb) of body weight (15 mg/kg for strongyloides). Each mark on the syringe delivers Anthelcide EQ to treat 100 lb (67 lb for strongyloides). Horses maintained on premises where reinfection is likely to occur should be retreated in 6–8 weeks.
Anthelcide EQ is compatible with carbon disulfide, which can be used concurrently for bot control (Gasterophilus spp.) when administered by a veterinarian. Routine carbon disulfide cautions must be observed.
USE OF SYRINGE
Determine the weight of the horse and dial the correct setting on the plunger, having the side of the wheel nearest the barrel on the desired mark. Remove the cap from the syringe. Insert the tip of the syringe into the side of the animal's mouth between the incisor and molar teeth and press the plunger down as far as it will go, depositing the paste on the back of the tongue.
Anthelcide EQ Paste is supplied in 12 0.85-oz (24-g) syringes.
