Farnam Worma Paste for Horses
Active Ingredients: Piperazine @ 214.4mg/g & Oxfendazole 107.2mg/g
Farnam Worma Paste for Horses is a broad-spectrum oral anthelmintic administered by syringe for horses of all ages that provides superior control of stomach and intestinal worms in horses.
Worma Paste sterilises worm eggs within 24 hours of administration to reduce recontamination rates in newly wormed horses, especially those new to a horse group, such as mares sent to stud or horses being spelled at pasture.
Farnam Worma Paste for Horses controls sensitive strains of adult and immature forms of;
- Large roundworms (Parascaris equorum),
- Pinworm (Oxyuris equi)
- Large strongyles (Strongylus spp)
- Adult stomach hairworm (Trichostrongylus axei)
- Adult stomach worm (Habronema microstoma)
- Small strongyles (Cyathostomes).
Farnam Worma Paste for Horses also kills tissue stages of Strongylus edentatus and aids in the control of migrating stages of Strongylus vulgaris with a corresponding reduction in arterial lesions. Two doses given two days apart enhance efficacy against migrating strongyles and decrease the incidence of associated colic.
Farnam Worma Paste for Horses contains the active ingredients Piperazine and Oxfendazole. Piperazine is an anthelmintic medication commonly used for deworming horses. It is effective against large roundworms, pinworms, and threadworms. Piperazine paralyses the worms, making it easier for them to be expelled from the horse’s digestive tract. Oxfendazole is another anthelmintic medication that is commonly used for deworming horses. It is effective against a variety of internal parasites, including large and small strongyles, pinworms, and ascarids.
What is the dose and administration of Farnam Worma Paste for Horses;
Dose according to the horse’s body weight by setting the plunger ring to the required body weight setting. The syringe is calibrated in 50 kg divisions. A 56 g syringe contains sufficient Worma Paste to treat a 600 kg horse. Ensure the syringe is placed on the back of the horse’s tongue, not between the teeth and cheeks. Depress the plunger and keep the horse’s head elevated and its mouth closed until the paste is swallowed. Internal parasites can develop resistance to anthelmintics. Pasture management, rotation between different types of wormer and other measures should be used to minimise the incidence of anthelmintic resistance.
