For more than 20 years horse owners have trusted Farnam for dependable deworming products for their horses. Now the name you know and trust is proud to introduce TapeCare Plus, a single active ingredient product, labeled for the removal and control of tapeworms (Anoplocephala perfoliata), in addition to strongyles, pinworms and roundworms.

Research1 shows tapeworms are strongly associated with 81 percent of ileal-impaction colic cases and 22 percent of spasmodic colic cases. Yet tapeworm infections have few visible signs, so it is possible for a horse to be heavily infected without any obvious symptoms. Even with microscopic examination of fecal material it is difficult to detect the presence of tapeworms or their eggs.

Recent studies2 show more than 50 percent of horses tested in the United States are infected with tapeworms. TapeCare Plus from Farnam reduces the risks associated with tapeworm infections.

“In a safety study, doses were given as high as ten times the maximum recommended six days in a row with no adverse events3,” said Heather Hoff, president of Farnam Equine Pharmaceuticals.

This patented tapeworm control is available in the Sure-Grip™ Syringe for precise, easy to administer dosing for horses and ponies.

“You should consult your veterinarian to determine the prevalence of tapeworms and other parasites in your region and to develop a deworming schedule that will meet your horse’s specific needs,” Hoff added.

To introduce TapeCare Plus as an ideal companion to IverCare® (ivermectin paste dewormer), Farnam is offering an instant $3 off coupon with the purchase of one dose of TapeCare Plus and one dose of IverCare, or $1 off with the purchase of one dose of TapeCare Plus, while supplies last at participating retailers.

Celebrating 60 years of sharing your passion for animals, Farnam Companies, Inc. is a leader in the animal health products industry.
