IAH - MecWorma and Bot - Farnam
FARNAM® MECWORMA® & BOT has been shown to be highly effective (up to 100% activity) in control and treatment of large and small strongyles (Strongylus and Cyathostomum spp.) including arterial larval stages and benzimidazole resistant strains, bots (Gasterophilus spp.), cutaneous onchocerciasis and nematodes including Habronema and Draschia spp. which cause skin lesions (summer sores).
MecWORMA & BOT contains abamectin, which is the only natural form of the macrocyclic lactone group of anthelmintics. Macrocyclic lactone compounds have revolutionised the control of parasites in animals. They are generally regarded as the most effective, least toxic and non-carcinogenic parasiticides yet developed.
The MECWORMA & BOT paste is easy to administer under a wide range of conditions, with a smooth, sticky consistency that is well accepted with minimal wastage. Abamectin has a wide safety margin at the recommended dose level especially in foals, pregnant mares, and aged or debilitated horses. There have been no adverse effects reported when used at double recommended doses in heavily parasitised horses.
