EqStim Benefits

  • Consistent performance: Microbial resistance can be a problem with antibiotics, because these drugs typically have only one mode of action. EqStim stimulates a multi-faceted attack by the horse’s own immune system.
  • Flexible: EqStim’s recommended treatment regimen (one intravenous injection every three days for three injections) is the optimal dosage schedule for complete immune stimulation. However, depending on an individual horse’s response, EqStim’s multi-dose therapy allows the veterinarian to customize the patient’s care by amending the dose and number of treatments.
  • Safe: EqStim does not employ any adjuvants (oil-based adjuvants have been implicated in adverse side effects when administered intravenously). EqStim is safe to use in adult horses, ponies, and foals. As with any equine biological, in rare instances EqStim may induce a mild, transient increase in body temperature, inappetance, and lethargy.
  • Cost Effective: Because EqStim enhances the horse’s first line of defense, the immune system, and shortens the recovery period from illness, there are substantial savings from the reduction in use of expensive antibiotics, lost training time, and missed performances

Contraindications:

Do not use in conjunction with glucocorticoids or other immune suppressors. Steroid therapy should be withdrawn at least seven days before initiating this therapy. Precautions: Store at room temperature until first used, then store at 2-7&degC 35-45&degF. Do not freeze.
