Moxidectin is a second-generation macrocyclic lactone of the milbemycin family. Praziquantel is a parasiticide widely used in many species for the specific control of tapeworm. For the treatment of mixed cestode and nematode or arthropod infections in horses, caused by moxidectin and praziquantel sensitive strains of:
Large redworm (large strongyles):
- Strongylus vulgaris (adults)
- Strongylus edentatus (adults)
- Triodontophorus brevicauda (adults)
- Triodontophorus serratus (adults)
- Triodontophorus tenuicollis (adults)
Small redworm (small strongyles/cyathostomin) (adults and intraluminal larval stages):
- Cyathostomum spp.
- Cylicocyclus spp.
- Cylicostephanus spp.
- Cylicodontophorus spp.
- Gyalocephalus spp.
- Parascaris equorum (adults)
- Pinworms: Oxyuris equi (adults)
- Stomach worms: Habronema muscae (adults)
- Threadworm: Strongyloides westeri (adults)
- Hairworm: Trichostrongylus axei (adults)
- Bots: Gasterophilus intestinalis (L2, L3)
- Bots: Gasterophilus nasalis (L2, L3)
- Anoplocephala perfoliata
- Anoplocephala magna
- Anoplocephaloides mamillana
The egg reappearance period of small redworm is 90 days.
The product is effective against (developing) intramucosal L4 stages of small redworm (strongyles). At 8 weeks after treatment, early (hypobiotic/inhibited) EL3 stages of small redworm (strongyles) are eliminated.
The product is effective against benzimidazole resistant strains of cyathostomes.
