To help you encourage your customers to dose their horses accurately this season Pfizer is giving away a free equine weigh tape with every purchase of Equest and Equest Pramox, while stocks last.
“Now is the time of year to treat your horse for encysted small redworms” advise the experts at Pfizer Animal Health. To help you encourage your customers to dose their horses accurately this season Pfizer is giving away a free equine weigh tape with every purchase of Equest and Equest Pramox (while stocks last).
Equest and Equest Pramox are said to be the only wormers in the UK that treat encysted small redworm in a single dose. Using a weigh tape to work out their horse’s weight will help your customers to avoid under dosing, which increases the risk of resistance development.
Small redworms are the most common worms found in horses today. They can pose a very serious health risk to horses and it is important for owners to make sure that they are treated properly during the autumn or early winter.
Ben Gaskell, Pfizer’s vet adviser, said: “Treating encysted small redworms successfully in the late autumn or early winter is important to avoid the risk of larval cyathostominosis. It’s important to advise your customers to choose a product that is licensed to treat the worms they are targeting and that they give the correct dose, by weighing their horse beforehand, as this will help preserve the efficacy of the drug used.”
Pfizer’s “Does your wormer measure up” campaign is backed by eye-catching point of sale materials and a comprehensive media campaign.
To receive a FREE weigh tape, valued at £7 your customers simply need to purchase a tube of Equest or Equest Pramox, fill in an application form and send off the batch and expiry flap from the pack. Pfizeer will then send them a FREE weigh tape, while stocks last.
