Parasite resistance how can it be achieved?
Ablerquant is a combination of Ivermectin & Praziquantel used as a horse wormer in an oral paste form (syringe) for easy and effective application. With the increasing number of parasites that have developed resistance to anthelmintics, the parasite control programs nowadays need better planning first than just deworming horses on a monthly basis. Fecal egg count test, selective deworming and controlling the environment help in creating a personalized program that is effective specifically for your horse.
Applying this kind of deworming program would require a lot of effort and money initially, but it allows the horse owner to save money over time, by possibly delaying the emergence of parasites that have developed resistance to anthelmintics.
According to research, much of the common horse parasites have developed resistance to at least a particular class of dewormer. This is in relation to how intensely some treatments are being used. What needs to be done is to deworm less and deworm intelligently.
This is not to tell you not to take care of your horses. Just remember to deworm your horse only if he needs it and it’s important to use the appropriate drug that is not only effective but also easy to administer.
Ablerquant is a treatment for horse parasites which contains Ivermectin and Praziquantel.
Ivermectin, unlike the other medication used in deworming which kill only adult worms in the intestines, can kill younger ones too. Ablerquant is a paste dewormer which is administered orally by inserting the nozzle of the syringe via the interdental space and depositing the required amount of paste on the back of the tongue. The horse’s mouth should be free of any food. Immediately after administration, elevate the head of the horse for a few seconds to ensure the dose is swallowed. Parasite resistance is achieveable.
