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 5 out of 5 by Amazing! This wormer costs $20 dollars at my feed store! The price here is so cheap. This is the only wormer I use for my horses April 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product This is the best! Takes care of all kinds of parasites ! March 21, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by bad deal On 9/4/12 i dewormed my horse with Zimectrin Gold. Within 10 minutes she started salivating and her mouth was drooped on one side ( the side I wormed her on). her gums were swollen and red. She became quite lethargic within a half an hour. she yawned and stretched her mouth alot. she would not drink or eat and we were very concerned. it took about 12 hours before she was normal again. i would not recommend this product. she definately had an adverse reaction, but has never reacted to any other dewormer. scary stuff September 5, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by DO NOT BUY!!!! I used the product a few times until my horse got chemical burns in his mouth after using it. i will nevr use it again; i Dont ever want to have to deal with that. He had to be on timothy pellets for two weeks because he could not eat hay, in addition to needing antibiotics, pain meds, and a mouth rinse twice a day. i do not recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Caused an Allergic Reaction! I have been using Zimectrin Gold for years on my horses, but last time my Arab had an immediate allergic reaction! His lips, tongue & mouth swelled up to the point that we called the vet out - on a Sunday night! But my other horse was fine. I think it must have been a bad batch, but will never risk using it again! August 13, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Serious Allergic Reaction I just wormed my 10 year old Welsh pony with this product tonight. Within a half hour, his lips, tongue and gums were swollen so badly that he could not close his mouth. I called the vet where she treated him with injections of antihistamines, banamine, steroids and ulcer guard. She told me this has been a long standing problem with Zim Gold. They simply pay the vet bills of the horses that experience these reactions but they will not voluntary pull the product. There is an additive that is in the carrier paste that basically causes a chemical burn in and around your horses mouth. They also can experience esophagus and stomach. July 26, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by DO NOT USE! Our gelding had a severe allergic reaction after using this product today. His lips and mouth became very swollen. He laid down in his stall and became quite lethargic. We were able to get in touch with our vet who told us this reaction was occurring more frequently than normal with ZG. We gave him banamine and iced his mouth and were able to get him back to near normal after several hours. This product needs to be recalled if there are this many problems with it. June 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it This is one of the best dewormers I've used! I've used this dewormer on 5 different horses. Four of my own and one boarder. None of them had any sort of reaction. My mare with a heavy parasite load lost her bloated belly in about a week. I will definitely be deworming with this more often! February 22, 2012

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!!!!
