Zimectrin Gold combines praziquantel with ivermectin and provides the broadest spectrum of parasite control available for horses. Praziquantel has been proven to be highly effective for tapeworm control and also has a wide margin of safety. Ivermectin, a highly effective anti-parasitic treatment, is neither a benzimidazole or an organophosphate. With just one dose, it removes worms and bots in horses weighing up to 1250 pounds. Ivermectin is made from a class of highly active anti-parasitic agents that have been isolated from the fermentation products of soil microorganisms, called the Avermectins. 

 Zimectrin is FDA-approved offers for the broad-spectrum control of internal parasites. It can be used in horses two months of age and older. Testing has not been done on breeding stallions or mares. 

 A single dose of Zimectrin Gold kills internal parasites, including tapeworms, bots, and the arterial stages of S. vulgaris. The concentrations in one dose are sufficient enough to be effective for prolonged periods after treatment against incumbent nematode infections.
