DEWORM YOUR HORSE IN ONE DOSE WITH QUEST® or QUEST® PLUS

Just one dose of QUEST® or QUEST® PLUS Gel treats and controls encysted small strongyles, bots and roundworms. QUEST PLUS contains an additional active ingredient — praziquantel — for efficacy against tapeworms. The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) recommends tapeworm treatment in the late fall or early winter after tapeworm transmission ends due to cold weather.1

One syringe of QUEST or QUEST PLUS now treats up to 1,500 pounds. Both dewormers remain the same trusted formulations. Use a scale or weight tape prior to each deworming to help ensure an accurate dose for your horse.

Since 2008, veterinarians and horse owners have purchased more than 16 million tubes of QUEST and QUEST PLUS, a testament to horse owners' trust in QUEST and QUEST PLUS.2

EFFECTIVE AGAINST KEY EQUINE PARASITES

Small strongyles are the key parasite of concern for adult horses.1 This equine parasite has shown widespread resistance to fenbendazole. Moxidectin, the active ingredient in QUEST and QUEST PLUS, continues to show efficacy.3,*

LONG LASTING PARASITE SUPPRESSION

QUEST and QUEST PLUS are the only FDA-approved products to suppress the production of small strongyle eggs, and a study showed egg suppression persisted for 90 days.2 This residual parasite control reduces pasture contamination and provides a period of protection from reinfection for horses and ponies.

APPROVED FOR BREEDING HORSES

QUEST and QUEST PLUS are proven safe for use in a variety of horses. QUEST and QUEST PLUS are the only products approved to treat encysted small strongyles in breeding mares and stallions.

Purchase QUEST and QUEST PLUS from your equine veterinarian or retailer. Prior to purchasing a dewormer, work with your veterinarian to complete a fecal egg count (FEC) test for your horse.

Do not use QUEST Gel or QUEST PLUS Gel in foals less than 6 months of age or in sick, debilitated and underweight horses. Do not use in other animal species, as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities in dogs, may result.
