EQUEST Oral Gel is safe to use in foals over 4 months of age, mares, ponies and horses. Mares may be treated at any stage of pregnancy and lactation.
Transient adverse reactions may occur at twice the recommended dose in foals and 3 times the recommended dose in adults. The signs are depression, inappetence, ataxia and drooping lower lip 8 to 24 hours following dosing.
Symptoms of moxidectin overdose are the same as those observed in very rare occasions at the recommended dosage. In addition, hypothermia may occur.
Symptomatic treatment is not generally necessary and recovery is generally complete within 24 to 72 hours.
There is no specific antidote.
