Equest Over 90% of all small redworm found in your horse will be encysted larvae. These will not show up on an egg count so the level of infection can be difficult to access, but because of the unique way Moxidectin (the active Ingredient in Equest) works. Equest is the only wormer licensed to control all stages of encysted small redworm in a single dose.  Equest also remains in the horses system for a further 2 weeks once treated thereby reducing the horses risk of re-infection and pasture contamination. Equest also has a lower toxicity to dung dwelling insects than the ivermectin based wormers. This again reduces pasture contamination as these insects help clear the pastures of dung. (PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL OUR EQUEST STOCKS ARE FULLY LICENSED AND APPROVED FOR USE IN THE UK)
