Your Horse Needs AblerQuant for Proper Equine Deworming
It is a safe generalization to declare that all horses have worms!
Worm infestations can range from sub clinical to critical, severely affecting your horse’s health. They rob precious blood, nutrients, and energy from horse host. In their various larvae stages some species burrow into tissues and vital organs such as the heart and liver.
Parasites are a significant threat to your horses overall health and wellness.
Typical symptoms of worm infestations are:
• dull coat
• poor attitude/ irritability
• pot belly
• persistent winter coat
• more frequent episodes of colic
• depressed performance
Horses not treated against parasites can lead them to have permanent damage to blood vessels and intestines, possibly causing chronic digestive problems such as colic or even death with heavy untreated infestations.
It is vital that proper management of worms should include a regular and effective de-worming program.
By combining Ivermectin with Praziquantel, we maximize the effectiveness of both medications in combating all common equine worms.
Ivermectin has the ability to kill a wide spectrum of adult worms as well as migrating larvae and bots in all stages. It is also effective to small strongyles that are resistant to some benzimidazole class compounds (adults and fourth-stage larvae).
However, whilst Ivermectin is not effective against equine tapeworms, Praziquantel is very effective against tapeworms (cestodes).
There are three tapeworm species which are equine specific.
Ivermectin is approved in horses for the control of:
• Small Strongyles (adults and fourth-stage larvae) including those resistant to some benzimidazole class compounds.
• Large Strongyles (adults)
- Strongylus vulgaris (also early forms in blood vessels),
- S. edentatus (also tissue stages),
- S. equinus,
- Triodontophorus spp;
• Pinworms (adults and fourth-stage larvae) Oxyuris equi;
• Ascarids (adults and third- and fourth-stage larvae) Parascaris equorum;
• Hairworms (adults) Trichostrongylus axei;
• Large-mouth Stomach Worms (adults) Habronema muscae;
• Bots (oral and gastric stages) Gastrophilus spp;
• Lungworms (adults and fourth-stage larvae) Dictyocaulus arnfieldi;
• Intestinal Threadworms (adults) Strongyloides westeri;
• Summer Sores caused by Habronema and Draschia spp cutaneous third-stage larvae;
• Dermatitis caused by neck threadworm microfilaria, Onchocerca
Praziquantel is a member of the pyrozine group of dewormers that is effective against tapeworms (cestodes). There are three equine specific tapeworms : Paranoplocephala mamillana, Anoplocephala magna, and Anoplocephala perfoliata
AblerQuant™ has been proven safe at 5 x the recommended dosage and is also known to be safe for foals as young as one month and for stallions. There is insufficient data for pregnant or lactating mares.

Facts about Stomach Ulcers in Horses:
Horses are known as “trickle feeders” in that, traditionally, they continually have free access to light grazing. Their stomach routinely produces about 1.5 liters (0.4 gallons) of gastric acid per hour to digest this feed. Today, with many horses being stabled and fed concentrated or restricted diets, the acid production still continues resulting in an abnormally high acidity in the stomach. Prolonged exposure of the stomach lining to this acid condition results in gastric ulcers.
To effectively restore and treat ulcers in horses, Abgard (™) is specially formulated to ensure that the Omeprazole is properly absorbed in the intestine against acidic conditions in the stomach.
Other risk factors that have been found to induce horse ulcers include stress related situations such as intensive exercise, transport, injury or even psychological stress. The use of some medications, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (Bute) can also induce horse ulcers.
• Up to 93% of racehorses gets stomach ulcers, regardless of age
• Almost 60% of other performance horses have ulcers
• Up to 57% of foals have stomach ulcers, particularly during the early months
• 50% of horses with ulcers show no outward signs of gastrointestinal disease
Clinical symptoms of Horse Ulcers:
Whilst an internal examination using an equine gastroscope is the only certain way to diagnose EGUS, there are many symptoms that are indicative of gastric horse ulcers, which include:
Decreased appetite or reluctance to eat the concentrated part of their diet
- Loss of weight
- Loss of condition
- Poor hair coat
- Attitude changes
- Aggressive or nervous disposition
- Grinding teeth
- Excessive salivation
- Lying down
- Hunched standing position
Treatment of Equine Ulcers:
In the absence of a gastrscopic examination, successful treatment of the symptoms usually confirms the presence of equine ulcers. The most successful treatment regime today is the use of Omeprazole, which can either be in Omeprazole paste form or Omeprazole granules form.
Omeprazole in not an antacid, it decreases the gastric acid secretion by blocking the H+, K+ – adenosine triphosphatase (acid pump) enzymes, shutting down acid secretion by knocking out the acid pumps, as opposed to competing with the stimulant.
Omeprazole is known to be acid-labile meaning it is degraded under acid conditions (like in the horse’s stomach). AbGard (™) is formulated to ensure that the active ingredient is available for absorption in the intestine.

Gastric ulcer in horses or equine gastric ulcer syndrome is now recognized as a lot more common in horses of all ages than what had been thought of before. Using an endoscope, equine gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS) has been discovered to exist in up to fifty percent of foals and ninety percent of those horses that are beyond their weaning age. Abprazole is used for the treatment and prevention of EGUS.
Causes for EGUS are normally related to three major risk factors either occurring individually or simultaneously. These factors include feeding pattern, stress and long-term usage of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Horses have developed from creatures that graze continuously around the common land and require small frequent food into the stomach, to something that is confined in stalls and stables. This confined horse is usually fed one or two times a day. Since this is not the normal life for a horse, the stomach is set to produce acid throughout the day and without food, the acid then causes the stomach lining to erode and create ulcers in the long run.
Stress-induced EGUS is caused by a number of factors like for high performance horses, they need to undergo strenuous training and showing. Another factor that contributes stress to the horse is when they are stabled alone without any contact with other horses. Feeding these horses with a high-grain diet also can cause stress that eventually leads to EGUS.
The long-term administration of NSAIDs has also been proven to be an established cause of EGUS. The amount of time for NSAIDs treatment among horses to cause EGUS varies from one horse to another. An NSAIDs treatment of over ten days will increase the risk for producing EGUS. The risk is even greater if a horse follows a strenuous racing or training schedule.
In treating EGUS, the first thing to do is to take away all the stressful activities that may have caused the ulcer. Any NSAIDs medications must be discontinued, if possible. Abprazole is effective in treating the ulcer. It contains Omeprazole granules in blue color that are enteric coated. Half a dose of Omeprazole is used as a preventive.
Ulcers found in the stomach of horses are just similar as the one we find in a human stomach. Gastroscopy is an exam that uses a gastroscope to view the stomach from inside and detect diseases. It can identify the presence of ulcers in the stomach and is widely used at present. Abprazole is a treatment used for equine ulcers. It contains Omeprazole granules used by sprinkling dry onto horses feed. Nowadays, there has been a striking growth in the number of equine ulcer cases as well as the various treatment options in curing and even preventing them.
There are many factors that cause equine ulcers. This condition among horses have now become even more common nowadays than ever before. This has started when people began interfering too much of the horses’ natural environment and natural needs.
In a modern racing stable setting for example, these circumstances are found to be prevalent:
- The horses are being isolated from each other and restrained or restricted from having physical contact with other horses. These horses are kept in stables and restricted from running around because they are too precious to just run freely and risk being hurt.
- Modern-day racehorses are found to have high level of stress. It has been observed that the stress level reaches its peak at around 4:30 am, or at the time the sun comes out or as soon as the lights are turned on in the morning. It’s been concluded that this is because of the fact that the horses don’t know what to expect on any particular day. Some activities during the day that could possibly be a stressor to them are injections, being inspected using gastro scope, and being sent off to a hospital , maybe it will undergo an hour of track work and the remaining hours of the day confined in the stable or medicated or operated on. There are a number of possible expectations a horse can only anticipate and their stress level will not become less intense until they know for sure what is in store for them. This is a far cry from the life they had in the wild before they were domesticated.
- A horse that is trained to compete is possibly exposed to phenylbutazone (Bute). This medication is used to treat pain and inflammation.
By knowing the possible conditions that contribute to the development of equine ulcers, we can also find ways to prevent them or at least minimize the stressors. If your horse has started to develop equine ulcer, Abprazole is the best treatment for this problem. It can even be used as a preventive medication to avoid equine ulcers in horses that are prone to experience the condition. These Omeprazole granules allow horses to continue with the normal daily trainings as the granules are well-tolerated among horses.
Ablerquant is a combination of Ivermectin & Praziquantel used as a horse wormer in an oral paste form (syringe) for easy and effective application. With the increasing number of parasites that have developed resistance to anthelmintics, the parasite control programs nowadays need better planning first than just deworming horses on a monthly basis. Fecal egg count test, selective deworming and controlling the environment help in creating a personalized program that is effective specifically for your horse.
Applying this kind of deworming program would require a lot of effort and money initially, but it allows the horse owner to save money over time, by possibly delaying the emergence of parasites that have developed resistance to anthelmintics.
According to research, much of the common horse parasites have developed resistance to at least a particular class of dewormer. This is in relation to how intensely some treatments are being used. What needs to be done is to deworm less and deworm intelligently.
This is not to tell you not to take care of your horses. Just remember to deworm your horse only if he needs it and it’s important to use the appropriate drug that is not only effective but also easy to administer.
Ablerquant is a treatment for horse parasites which contains Ivermectin and Praziquantel. Ivermectin, unlike the other medication used in deworming which kill only adult worms in the intestines, can kill younger ones too. Ablerquant is a paste dewormer which is administered orally by inserting the nozzle of the syringe via the interdental space and depositing the required amount of paste on the back of the tongue. The horse’s mouth should be free of any food. Immediately after administration, elevate the head of the horse for a few seconds to ensure the dose is swallowed.
