INFORMATION FOR HORSE OWNERS: Swelling and itching reactions after
treatment with EQVALAN Paste have occurred in horses carrying heavy
infections of neck threadworm (Onchocerca sp microfilariae). These reactions
were most likely the result of microfilariae dying in large numbers.
Symptomatic treatment may be advisable. Consult your veterinarian should any
such reactions occur. Healing of summer sores involving extensive tissue
changes may require other appropriate therapy in conjunction with treatment
with EQVALAN (ivermectin) Paste. Reinfection, and measures for its
