Equipas-R is specifically designed to aid in the prevention of Rhodococcus equi infection by foals, a condition that can lead to life-long complications.VISIT FOR 'HOW TO' GUIDES >> Equiplas-R is Plasvacc's hyperimmunised equine plasma product specifically designed to aid in the prevention of Rhodococcus equi infection in foals. Rich in specific anti-Rhodococcus gamma globulins, Equiplas-R is collected from specially hyperimmunised donor horses that reside at the Plasvacc plasma production facility, the only facility of its kind in Australia. Rhodococcus equi is a soil/dust borne organism that is inhaled into the lungs during hot, dry, dusty conditions. R Equi infection, or "Rattles" as it is more commonly known, causes a severe pneumonia and can result in long-term debility or death. Even if successfully treated, the ramifications of this disease can be ongoing and despite the substantial treatment costs, a horse that has recovered from this condition may never reach its full athletic potential. Considering the significant impact of this disease on the long-term health and condition of the animal, the importance of administering Equiplas R to every foal in a group at birth, and again three weeks later as a preventative aid cannot be underestimated. Equiplas-R is supplied under APVMA (Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority) permit. Equiplas R
