FARNAM® MECWORMA® & TAPETM ALLWORMER PASTE FOR HORSES is a highly effective broad spectrum anthelmintic achieving up to 100 % worm kill (including benzimidazole resistant strains). MECWORMA® & TAPETM ALLWORMER utilises a combination of two horse wormers from different classes, abamectin (macrocyclic lactone) and morantel tartrate (tetrahydropyrimidine).

MECWORMA® & TAPETM ALLWORMER contains abamectin, which is the only natural form of the macrocyclic lactone group of anthelmintics. Macrocyclic lactone compounds have revolutionised the control of parasites in animals and are generally regarded as the most effective, least toxic and non-carcinogenic parasiticides yet developed. MECWORMA® & TAPETM paste is easy to administer under a wide range of conditions, with a smooth, sticky consistency that is well accepted. MECWORMA® & TAPETM ALLWORMER has a wide safety margin at the recommended dose level when administered to foals, pregnant mares, and aged or debilitated horses.

Adjust the locking ring to the required body weight and depress plunger. Ensure paste is administered on the rear of the tongue and hold horse’s head raised for a few seconds after dosing to ensure the paste is swallowed.
