Just one dose of QUEST® treats and controls encysted small strongyles, bots and roundworms. The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) recommends tapeworm treatment in the late fall or early winter after tapeworm transmission ends due to cold weather.1
One syringe of QUEST now treats up to 1,500 pounds. Use a scale or weight tape prior to each deworming to help ensure an accurate dose for your horse.
Since 2008, veterinarians and horse owners have purchased more than 16 million tubes of QUEST and QUEST PLUS, a testament to horse owners' trust in QUEST and QUEST PLUS.2
EFFECTIVE AGAINST KEY EQUINE PARASITES
Small strongyles are the key parasite of concern for adult horses.1 This equine parasite has shown widespread resistance to fenbendazole. Moxidectin, the active ingredient in QUEST and QUEST PLUS, continues to show efficacy.3,*
LONG LASTING PARASITE SUPPRESSION
QUEST and QUEST PLUS are the only FDA-approved products to suppress the production of small strongyle eggs, and a study showed egg suppression persisted for 90 days.2 This residual parasite control reduces pasture contamination and provides a period of protection from reinfection for horses and ponies.
As treatment doses are based on the weight of the animal, use a scale or weight tape to determine each animal's weight before treating with QUEST® or QUEST® PLUS.
Once an accurate weight is known, treat each horse or pony as follows:
- Adjust the ring to your animal’s weight and lock into place.
- Make sure there is no feed in the animal’s mouth.
- Remove the cap from the end of the syringe. Save the cap for reuse.
- Place the tip of the syringe inside the animal’s mouth at the space between the teeth.
- Gently push the plunger until it stops, depositing the gel on the back of the tongue.
- Remove the syringe from the animal’s mouth and raise the animal’s head slightly to make sure he swallows the gel.
- Replace the syringe cap.
