Basically there are only 5 worming drugs on the market that are used to treat ROUNDWORMS:
Fenbendazole Panacur either as a one-off dose or in the 5 day guard form.
Eraquell, Furexel, Noromectin, Panomec, Vectin & Equimax
P & Pyratape P.
Resistance to Panacur is becoming common. This is particularly the case in situations where horses have grazed the same pasture for years and received regular treatment with Panacur.
There has been some resistance to ivermectin in cattle but this is not yet a significant problem in horses. To our knowledge all the various forms of ivermectin are all as effective as each other.
Moxidectin (Equest) has a similar mode of action as ivermectin but is the most effective against encysted small red worms, a siginificant cause of worm problems and diarrhoea in horses.
