A Broad-Spectrum Equine Paste Dewormer


ANTHELCIDE® EQ Paste safely and effectively removes and controls various internal parasites, including large strongyles, small strongyles, large roundworms, pinworms and threadworms. This broad-spectrum dewormer contains the active ingredient oxibendazole.

Every horse is one of a kind, which is why the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) recommends working with your veterinarian to develop a deworming plan to fit your horse’s needs. Ask your veterinarian to conduct a fecal egg count test before purchasing a dewormer. Then evaluate your horse’s Individualized Deworming™ needs by answering a few questions on

    How to Deworm
    As treatment doses are based on the weight of the animal, use a scale or weight tape to determine each animal’s weight before treating. Once an accurate weight is known, treat each horse with ANTHELCIDE EQ Paste as follows:

    1. Adjust the ring to your animal’s weight and lock into place.
    2. Make sure there is no feed in the animal’s mouth.
    3. Remove the cap from the end of the syringe. Save the cap for reuse.
    4. Place the tip of the syringe into the side of the animal’s mouth at the space between the incisor and molar teeth.
    5. Gently push the plunger until it stops, depositing the dewormer on the back of the tongue.
    6. Remove the syringe from the animal’s mouth and raise the animal’s head slightly to make sure he swallows the dewormer.
    7. Replace the syringe cap.
