Merial, a world-leading animal health company, announces its largest giveaway ever for ZIMECTERIN® GOLD (ivermectin/praziquantel), the company's broad-spectrum equine dewormer. Thousands of horse owners will win prizes -including one lucky winner who will take home a new Elite® Mustang trailer - in the Golden Giveaway from ZIMECTERIN GOLD.
"Merial wants to give back to horse owners who recognize the value of a parasite control program," says Duane Maye, DVM, associate director of marketing at Merial. "One lucky person will drive away towing a brand new trailer, worth more than $15,000, simply for protecting their horses against damaging parasites."
The grand prize winner receives an Elite Mustang, an 18-foot, three-horse trailer with a dressing room. The trailer features removable dividers with padding on each side; a three-tier, removable saddle rack; and a collapsible rear tack area with an extra saddle location.
Along with the trailer, participants in the Golden Giveaway from ZIMECTERIN GOLD could win one of more than 5,000 great prizes, such as an Apple® iPod® Shuffle™, a sterling silver equine charm bracelet, a cap or a pair of roping gloves.
"The Golden Giveaway rewards horse owners for doing their part in the battle against tapeworms and other damaging parasites," Maye says. "The best insurance against tapeworms is to use a broad-spectrum dewormer, such as ZIMECTERIN GOLD, as the cornerstone of their deworming program."
Horses should be treated with a dewormer every two months or at least four times per year, and treated for tapeworms, at minimum, in the spring and fall. ZIMECTERIN GOLD is a broad-spectrum dewormer that is also fully effective in removing tapeworm infections.
To enter the Golden Giveaway, horse owners should visit their local retailer to receive details on how to enter and win. The promotion runs from August 1 to December 31, 2005. For complete rules and regulations, visit your retailer or contact a Merial representative. For more information on ZIMECTERIN GOLD, visit www.ZIMECTERIN.com.
