One lucky horse owner using ZIMECTERIN® GOLD (ivermectin/praziquantel) to drive out tapeworms may soon be driving home a 2007 Ford® F-250 truck, the grand prize for the Drive Home the Gold promotion. Hundreds of other prizes, including iPod® Shuffle™ mobile digital devices, Visa® gift cards and horse brushes are also up for grabs.
"Maintaining the health of horses has always been our main priority, and we hope to use this giveaway as a chance to drive home the importance of controlling parasites including tapeworms," says Duane Maye, DVM, Director of Equine Marketing, Merial. "ZIMECTERIN GOLD has made controlling tapeworms and other internal parasites easy for horse owners and this giveaway provides added incentive to adopt a more complete parasite control program."
