SAFETY

Noromectin Praziquantel Duo Paste may be used in horses 4 weeks of age and older. Stallions and breeding, pregnant or lactatingmares may be treated without adverse effects on fertility.
In a tolerance study in which 3- to 4-week-old foals were treated at 10X once, loose watery stools were observed onpost-treatment days 1, 2, and 5-9 in one foal. These signs resolved without treatment by day 10, and no other foals wereaffected.
In a reproductive safety study, eleven mares were treated with a 3X dose of Noromectin Praziquantel Duo Paste every two weeks throughoutbreeding, pregnancy and lactation, up until the foal was three months of age. Ten mares served as controls and were treatedwith the vehicle paste in a similar manner. An increased incidence of colic was observed in treated mares as compared tocontrol mares. In addition, elevations of GGT and AST were more frequent in the 3X treated mares, and in two mares theseenzymes were elevated at the time of colic episodes.
One treated mare was dropped from the study because she did not conceive after three breeding attempts.
Two treated mares had abnormally short diestrous periods of two days and eight days on the first estrous cycle following thebirth of the study foal. In addition, one of these two mares failed to ovulate in the second and third estrous cycles.
In the first few weeks of life, foals born to the 3X treated mares had a higher incidence of transient ocular discharge andgastrointestinal disturbances (loose stools, diarrhea) and depression requiring medical intervention as compared to foalsborn to control mares.

Like Acetaminophen/Paracetemol is Generic name and it has different brand names like Tylenol, Acimol, Crocin, Calpol etc. All these Brand names contain the same Paracetemol, but the medications are manufactured by different companies, so the different brand names.
