Strongylus vulgaris adults and 4th larval (arterial) stages, Strongylus edentatus adults and 4th larval (tissue) stages, Strongylus equinus adults. Small strongyles (adults): Cyathostomum catinatum, Cyathostomum pateratum, Cylicocyclus ashworthi, Cylicocyclus elongates, Cylicocyclus insigne, Cylicocyclus leptostomum, Cylicocyclus nassatus, Cylicocyclus radiates, Cylicostephanus asymetricus, Cylicostephanus bidentatus, Cylicostephanus calicatus, Cylicostephanus goldi, Cylicostephanus longibursatus, Cylicostephanus minutus, Cylicodontophorus bicornatus, Gyalocephalus capitatus.

Ivermectin is not effective against encysted larval stages of the small strongyles.
Administer orally at a single dose rate of 200µg/kg of bodyweight. One syringe division of paste should be administered per 100 kg bodyweight [based on the recommended dosage of 200µg/kg (0.2 mg/kg)]. Each syringe delivers 140 mg ivermectin, sufficient to treat 700 kg of bodyweight. Determine horses weight as accurately as possible for the correct use of the paste. The animals mouth should be free from food to ensure swallowing. Insert the tip of the syringe barrel at the interdental space (the gap between the front and back teeth). Immediately elevate the horses head for a few seconds to ensure swallowing.
Do not use the same syringe to treat more than one animal unless horses are running together or in direct contact with each other on the same premises. For best results all horses in a yard or grazing together should be included in a regular parasite control programme, with particular attention being paid to mares, foals and yearlings, and treated at the same time. Foals should be treated initially at 6-8 weeks of age and routine treatment repeated as appropriate.
Retreat according to the epidemiological situation, but not less than 30 days interval.
