Each weight marking on the syringe plunger delivers enough paste to treat 250 lb body weight. (1) While holding plunger, turn the knurled ring on the plunger ¼ turn to the left and slide it so the side nearest the barrel is at the prescribed weight marking. (2) Lock the ring in place by making a ¼ turn to the right. (3) Make sure that the horse’s mouth contains no feed. (4) Remove the cover from the tip of the syringe. (5) Insert the syringe tip into the horse’s mouth at the space between the teeth. (6) Depress the plunger as far as it will go, depositing paste on the back of the tongue. (7) Immediately raise the horse’s head for a few seconds after dosing.
Parasite Control:
ZIMECTERIN® GOLD Paste is a potent antiparasitic agent that is neither a benzimidazole nor an organophosphate.
Animal Safety:
ZIMECTERIN® GOLD Paste may be used in horses two months of age or older.
ZIMECTERIN® GOLD Paste has not been tested in foals younger than two months of age, mares at or near the time of breeding, pregnant or lactating mares, and breeding stallions. ZIMECTERIN® GOLD Paste, when tested at 1, 3, and 5-times the maximum recommended dose every two weeks in 5-month old foals, and at 10-times the maximum recommended dose in a separate study, did not elicit any adverse clinical signs of toxicity. In a foal safety study in younger animals, ZIMECTERIN® GOLD Paste was found safe up to 3-times the maximum recommended dose in 2-month old foals.

Zimecterin® Gold Product Satisfaction Guarantee
This Product Satisfaction Guarantee offers you no-hassle assurance of product satisfaction when you treat your horse according to label directions. All horses carry parasites, but proper management will control them. Establishing good sanitation practices and maintaining a regular deworming schedule are a crucial to maintaining the good health of your horse. Always dose according to your horse’s weight, not size. Appropriate rotation of ingredients (not products) is crucial. Avoid overlap of active ingredients every time you worm to ensure your horse receives the necessary combination of medicines to stay healthy.

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by allergic reaction gave ZG to my 25 Y/O Andalusian gelding for the first time today and within a half hour noticed his inner lip swollen the size of a golf ball and the flesh bright red and turned out of his mouth. The swelling was all down this right side inside the mouth where I administered it. He was able to eat but sensitive to my touching it. Several hours later still swollen but does not appear to be any worse. I will continue to monitor and call vet if it gets worse. Never had this with any other wormer in his 25 yrs of life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zimectrin Gold i own a 4yr. gelding appy, and he had worms before we got him and had him on some stuff and it didnt work at all but then we got this stuff and he instantly gained weight and got rid of all worms:)))) January 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must I use this product twice a year to make sure my horses do not get tape worms. Any worm is bad but tape worms can be transmitted to humans easier. I never had a problem with this product and I have some of THE most sensitive horses on the planet! November 5, 2010
Rated 1 out of 5 by BE CAREFUL!!! Many many horses have reactions with Zimecterin Gold, including swelling of the mouth, ulcerations in the mouth or stomach, etc. I would never ever use this formula especially since there are other products with the same formulation. Go to Chronicle of the Horse and search the forums if you don't believe the horror stories. October 15, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME!!!!!! I used this on my yearling and he's worm free!!!! This is a great product!!!! September 14, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great! I love this product! I use it on my rotation dewormers all the time because it is only one of two products that I can find that has ivermectrin in it! August 25, 2010
Rated 2 out of 5 by His Mouth Swelled up! I dosed my horse today with ZG, He immediately kept rolling his tongue around in his mouth...I thought it was normal for him, but about 10 min later his mouth where the dewormer was administered had swollen and he was drooling quite a bit. I will NEVER use this product EVER again!!! I will stick with the regular Zimectrin in my rotation from now on! May 14, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love It I used ZImecterin Gold for the first time this spring and my horse has never looked better. She lost her hay belly and her coat slicked out. She must have had tapeworms... Ill use Zimecterin Gold every deworming from now on. Its worth the extra money. April 14, 2009

What is the frequency (once a year/bi monthly ?)
A shopper on Jul 15, 2014
Best Answer: I love this wormer! It covers a lot of the different parasites horses carry. I use this reg on my horses and it seems to work well. I would tell you to get a fecal test done to be sure what would be best for you. I had mine done and my vet recommended this wormer for me. But it is great!!!!
