Valumax (previously Promectin Plus red tube) horse wormer gives effective treatment against internal horse parasites within 24 hours. It contains a broad spectrum combined horse worming preparation Abamectin & Praziquantel.
Current Expiry - Sept 2018
The effectiveness of Valumax is due to the combination of 3.7mg/g Abamectin and 46.2mg/g of Praziquantel. Abamectin eliminates all common horse worms and bots. Praziquantel is an unparalleled agent in eradicating tapeworms. Combined, they produce a deadly formula for horse parasites.
Valumax has been specially formulated with oatmeal to make it more palatable for your horse, and to reduce wastage when applying. With a recommended dose of 5.4g per 100kg, only one syringe is needed to treat a 600kg horse.
Recommended retreatment interval is 6 - 8 weeks

All horses should be included in a regular parasite control programme, with particular attention paid to mares, foals and yearlings. Because reinfection is common, treatment must be repeated routinely for effective control. Consult your veterinarian for a control programme to specifically meet your needs.
Valumax is totally safe for use on foals, pregnant mares and breeding stallions when used as recommended.
Valumax has a wide safety margin. Up to five times the recommended dose rate in adult horses produces no adverse reaction
