For horses weighing more than 600kg, dose at the rate of 1g/20kg.

Set the correct dose rate by turning the plunger lock. Remove the cap and insert the syringe nozzle into the side of the horse's mouth, in the gap between the front and back teeth. Advance the syringe as far as possible into the mouth, and deposit the paste onto the back of the tongue by pressing the plunger completely to give the measured dose. Then immediately raise the horse's head and hold for a few seconds to ensure the full dose is swallowed.
Repeat doses should be given every 6-8 weeks in young and all susceptible horses. When using good control measures to reduce re-infestation, mature horses only require treatment 3-4 times a year.

Safety of Ultra-Mox:
Ultramox is safe to use in all classes and types of horses. This includes breeding mares and stallions, pregnant mares (at all stages of their pregnancy) and lactating mares. Safe for foals over 4 weeks of age. Take care in calibrating the dose for foals and smaller breeds. Avoid overdosing.

Ultramox contains moxidectin, a member of the macrocyclic lactone family, praziquantel, a highly effective specific cestocidal compound, and oxfendazole, a member of the benzimidazole family. It is effective against all parasites susceptible to these two families.

Resistance may develop to any anthelmintic. Ask your local veterinary practitioner for recommended parasite management practices for your area to reduce the development of resistance. It is advisable that a resistance test be conducted regularly when using any parasite treatment. Correct drenching technique should be used.

Methods to Control Horse Parasites in the Environment:
  • Worm regularly;
  • Worm all new introductions and quarantine for at least 24 hours (preferably 48 hours) to empty out before introducing them to pasture and other horses;
  • Treat any horse before moving to a new group;
  • Treat all horses grazed together at the same time;
  • Pick up manure regularly - at least once or preferably twice weekly. This is practical in small paddocks and yards;
  • Rotationally graze horse paddocks with sheep, cattle or deer. This helps reduce the pasture worm larvae/egg populations of all equine parasites;
  • Use feed bins and hayracks rather than feeding off the ground;
  • Remove bot eggs regularly from the horse's hair coat.

How Often Should you Worm your Horse?
  • Depends on many factors such as the number of horses grazing together, the number of paddocks in which the horses are grazed, paddock size, and whether or not control measures (mentioned above) are used;
  • For an individualised recommendation of the appropriate worming schedule for your property, consult your veterinarian;
  • Resistance to an anthelmintic or wormer may develop in any of the individual worm species that infest horses. See your veterinarian to check the effectiveness of your wormer, if required.

Withholding Times:
Horses producing meat or offal for human consumption must not be sold for slaughter either during treatment or within 63 days of the last treatment.

Human First Aid, Symptoms Of Poisoning:
