The active ingredients in Quest Plus Equine Oral Gel include praziquantel and moxidectin. Praziquantel increases the permeability of the tapeworm membrane to cations like calcium, causing contraction and paralysis of the parasite's muscles. Moxidectin paralyzes and eliminates parasites by interfering with chloride channel-mediated neurotransmission.

How does Zoetis Quest Plus Gel for Horses with Worms, 1 syringe, 0.05 ounces work?
Praziquantel and moxidectin are the active components in this gel composition. Praziquantel produces extreme contraction and ultimately paralysis of the tapeworm's muscles by increasing the permeability of the tapeworm's membrane to cations like calcium. Because of this paralysis, the parasite is unable to connect to the host's intestinal wall. Detached tapeworms are either removed by feces or killed by the immune system of the host. Moxidectin is a harmless chemical that acts by interfering with parasite neurotransmission via chloride channels, causing parasite paralysis and eventual removal while having no impact on the neurological system of the mammalian host.
