VIRBAC ERAQUELL PELLETS

WHAT ARE ERAQUELL PELLETS?

-      Cereal-based pellets that look and smell like pony cubes

-      A safe and effective wormer that controls internal equine parasites and all three species of bots

-      An alternative to traditional paste and liquid wormers

 

WHY USE ERAQUELL PELLETS

Palatable pellet in a small dose size

The bite-sized pellets are readily accepted by most horses directly from the feed bucket. For very fussy eaters, mixing the Eraquell Pellets with a handful of the horse’s usual pre-mixed feed will ensure the entire dose is consumed.

 

Broad Spectrum wormer

The ivermectin in Eraquell provides a broad-spectrum anti-parasiticide for control of all equine worms (except tapeworm), bots, lungworms, intestinal threadworms and skin parasites (summer sores and neck threadworms).

 

To protect against worm related disease

Veterinarians see horses affected by worm associated disease on a daily basis. Even if your horse shows no obvious signs of infection it is possible that worms are living inside your horse. Left untreated, the burden of internal parasites can cause colic, diarrhoea, anaemia and even death. Horses that are not treated for worms can also experience poor growth, weight loss, dull coats, skin irritations and general dullness. It is vitally important that all horses are given regular worm treatments with an effective wormer such as Eraquell Pellets.

 

Track record of safety

Extensive trials have proven the safety and efficacy of Eraquell Pellets. Safety has been proven in different age groups and life stages of horses including breeding mares and stallions. Due to difficulties in accurately measuring a dose it is not recommended to administer Eraquell® Pellets to foals.

Treats a 700kg horse in one dose

Each 35g sachet of Eraquell Pellets will treat a 700kg animal meaning most horses can be easily treated with a single sachet.
