FOR ORAL USE IN HORSES 4 WEEKS OF AGE AND OLDER. EQUIMAX® (ivermectin/praziquantel)
Paste should not be used in other animal species as severe adverse reactions, including fatalities
in dogs, may result. Do not use in horses intended for human consumption. S welling and itching
reactions after treatment with ivermectin paste have occurred in horses carrying heavy infections
of neck threadworm (Onchocerca sp. microfilariae), most likely due to microfilariae dying in large
numbers. Not for use in humans. Ivermectin and ivermectin residues may adversely affect
aquatic organisms, therefore dispose of product appropriately to avoid environmental contamination. Trademarks belong to their respective owners.

Comprehensive, Safe, & Effective
PARASITE CONTROL SOLUTION
For every horse, for every season.
Sports and performance horses
comprise about 90 percent of Crosby’s
practice, so lameness issues are a huge
focus. He notes that when chiropractic is incorporated into treatment, he
sees more positive resolution of cases,
which translates into happier horses—
Crosby finds that when a horse isn’t
performing as usual, physical examination often turns up an issue that
requires chiropractic treatment. For
example, a horse who becomes difficult
to bridle when he was fine before, or
resists collection and holding a headset,
may need adjustment of his temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) and/or poll.
Without examination by a veterinarian
or chiropractor, the owner may just
assume the horse is being stubborn or
having trouble with the bit.
Among the most common areas
requiring adjustment on performance
horses are the pelvis, sacrum and neck.
In the case of back soreness, Crosby
cautions that if the same issues reappear a short time after chiropractic
treatment, saddle fit may be the problem and should be considered.
As a reminder about the importance of proper trimming/shoeing,
if the horse’s feet are out of balance,
every bone above the foot is affected,
which can lead to misalignment. This
is why it’s so critical to maintain regular appointments with your professional hoof care provider.
If your horse is being seen by your
regular veterinarian for an issue,
such as those mentioned above, ask
if chiropractic treatment should be
included. (See pg. 48 on how to find a
certified chiropractor in your area.)
Before any adjustments are done,
the chiropractor will want to know
the horse’s case history, with information from the horse’s owner and veterinarian, including any radiographs
and lab results. The chiropractor will
also consider vital details, such as the
