DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

EQUIMAX LIQUID ALLWORMER

,

Allwormer tubing liquid for horses dose rate is

1mL/4kg body weight (25 mL per 100 kg). Horses should have their weight accurately

determined before dosing and the tubing liquid should be measured with an accurate

measuring device. Do not underdose.

Dosage and Administration:

EQUIMAX LIQUID ALLWORMER, Allwormer tubing liquid for horses is given orally at

the recommended dose level of 1mL/ 4 kg bodyweight. The dose of 1mL/ 4 kg bodyweight

delivers 0.2 mg/kg of ABAMECTIN and 2.5 mg/kg of PRAZIQUANTEL. The calculated

volume to be administered is to delivered by a stomach tube directly into the stomach.

This ensures the full dose will be administered. Where horses cannot be stomach tubed,

an appropriate device can be used for administration, ie a drench gun.

SUGGESTED PARASITE CONTROL PROGRAMME:

All horses should be included in a regular parasite control programme with particular

attention being paid to mares, foals and yearlings. EQUIMAX LIQUID ALLWORMER,

Allwormer

tubing

liquid

for

horses

highly

effective

against

tapeworms

gastrointestinal, cutaneous, and pulmonary nematodes and bots of horses of all ages.

Regular treatment will reduce the chances of verminous arteritis and colic caused by

S.vulgaris. With its broad spectrum, EQUIMAX LIQUID ALLWORMER, Allwormer tubing

liquid for horses is well suited to be a major product in a parasite control programme.

Consult your veterinarian for a control programme to meet your specific needs.

This is a commercial product whose exact ratio of components may vary slightly. Minor quantities of other non

hazardous ingredients are also possible.

The TWA exposure value is the average airborne concentration of a particular substance when calculated over a normal 8 hour working day for a 5

day working week. The STEL (Short Term Exposure Limit) is an exposure value that should not be exceeded for more than 15 minutes and should

not be repeated for more than 4 times per day. There should be at least 60 minutes between successive exposures at the STEL. The term "peak "is

used when the TWA limit, because of the rapid action of the substance, should never be exceeded, even briefly.

Section 11 – Toxicological Information

Toxicity:

Acute toxicity: Abamectin is highly toxic to insects and may be highly toxic to mammals as well.

Emulsifiable concentrate formulations may cause slight to moderate eye irritation and mild skin irritation. Symptoms of

poisoning observed in laboratory animals include pupil dilation, vomiting, convulsions and/or tremors, and coma.

Abamectin acts on insects by interfering with the nervous system. At very high doses, it can affect mammals, causing

symptoms of nervous system depression such as incoordination, tremors, lethargy, excitation, and pupil dilation. Very

high doses have caused death from respiratory failure. Abamectin is not readily absorbed through skin. Tests with

monkeys show that less than 1% of dermally applied abamectin was absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin.

Abamectin does not cause allergic skin reactions. The oral LD

for abamectin in rats is 10 mg/kg, and in mice ranges

from 14 mg/kg to greater than 80 mg/kg. The dermal LD

for technical abamectin in rats and rabbits is greater than

330 mg/kg.

Chronic toxicity: In a 1-year study with dogs given oral doses of abamectin, dogs at the 0.5 and 1 mg/kg/day doses

exhibited pupil dilation, weight loss, lethargy, tremors, and recumbency. Similar results were seen in a 2-year study

with rats fed 0.75, 1.5, or 2 mg/kg/day. Rats at all the dosage levels exhibited body weight gains significantly higher

than the controls. A few individuals in the high dose group exhibited tremors. When mice were fed 8 mg/kg/day for 94

weeks, the males developed dermatitis and changes in blood formation in the spleen, while females exhibited tremors

and weight loss.

Reproductive effects: Rats given 0.40 mg/kg/day of abamectin had increased stillbirths, decreased pup viability,

decreased lactation, and decreased pup weights. These data suggest that abamectin may have the potential to cause

reproductive effects at high enough doses.

Teratogenic effects: Abamectin produced cleft palate in the offspring of treated mice and rabbits, but only at doses

that were also toxic to the mothers. There were no birth defects in the offspring of rats given up to 1 mg/kg/day.

Abamectin is unlikely to cause teratogenic effects except at doses toxic to the mother.

Mutagenic effects: Abamectin does not appear to be mutagenic. Mutagenicity tests in live rats and mice were

negative. Abamectin was shown to be nonmutagenic in the Ames test.

Carcinogenic effects: Abamectin is not carcinogenic in rats or mice. The rats were fed dietary doses of up to 2

mg/kg/day for 24 months, and the mice were up to 8 mg/kg/day for 22 months. These represent the maximum

tolerated doses.

Organ toxicity: Animal studies indicate that abamectin may affect the nervous system.

Fate in humans and animals: Tests with laboratory animals show that ingested avermectin B1a is not readily

absorbed into the bloodstream by mammals and that it is rapidly eliminated from the body within 2 days via the

faeces. Rats given single oral doses of avermectin B1a excreted 69 to 82% of the dose unchanged in the faeces. The

average half-life of avermectin B1a in rat tissue is 1.2 days. Lactating goats given daily oral doses for 10 days

excreted 89% of the administered avermectin, mainly in the faeces. Less than 1% was recovered in the urine.

Section 12 – Ecological Information

Effects on birds: Abamectin is practically nontoxic to birds. The LD

for abamectin in bobwhite quail is >2000 mg/kg.

The dietary LC

is 3102 ppm in bobwhite quail. There were no adverse effects on reproduction when mallard ducks

were fed dietary doses of 3, 6, or 12 ppm for 18 weeks.

Effects on aquatic organisms: Abamectin is highly toxic to fish and extremely toxic to aquatic invertebrates. Its LC

(96-hour) is 0.003 mg/L in rainbow trout, 0.0096 mg/L in bluegill sunfish, 0.015 mg/L in sheepshead minnows, 0.024

mg/L in channel catfish, and 0.042 mg/L in carp. Its 48-hour LC

in Daphnia magna, a small freshwater crustacean, is

0.003 mg/L. The 96-hour LC

for abamectin is 0.0016 mg/L in pink shrimp, 430 mg/L in eastern oysters, and 153

mg/L in blue crab. While highly toxic to aquatic organisms, actual concentrations of abamectin in surface waters

adjacent to treated areas are expected to be low. Abamectin did not bioaccumulate in bluegill sunfish exposed to

0.099 μg/L for 28 days in a flow-through tank. The levels in fish were from 52 to 69 times the ambient water

concentration, indicating that abamectin does not accumulate or persist in fish.

Effects on other organisms: Abamectin is highly toxic to bees, with a 24-hour contact LC

of 0.002 μg/bee and an

oral LD

of 0.009 μg/bee.

Breakdown in soil and groundwater: Abamectin is rapidly degraded in soil. At the soil surface, it is subject to rapid

photodegradation, with half-lives of 8 hours to 1 day reported. When applied to the soil surface and not shaded, its

soil half-life is about 1 week. Under dark, aerobic conditions, the soil half-life was 2 weeks to 2 months. Loss of

abamectin from soils is thought to be due to microbial degradation. The rate of degradation was significantly

decreased under anaerobic conditions. Because abamectin is nearly insoluble in water and has a strong tendency to

bind to soil particles, it is immobile in soil and unlikely to leach or contaminate groundwater. Compounds produced by

the degradation of abamectin are also immobile and unlikely to contaminate groundwater.

Breakdown in water: Abamectin is rapidly degraded in water. After initial distribution, its half-life in artificial pond

water was 4 days. Its half-life in pond sediment was 2 to 4 weeks. It undergoes rapid photodegradation, with a half-life

of 12 hours in water. When tested at pH levels common to surface and groundwater (pH 5, 7, and 9), abamectin did

not hydrolyze.

Breakdown in vegetation: Plants do not absorb abamectin from the soil. Abamectin is subject to rapid degradation

when present as a thin film, as on treated leaf surfaces. Under laboratory conditions and in the presence of light, its

half-life as a thin film was 4 to 6 hours.
