    DOSAGE FOR DOGS; Shelf Life & Cost-Effectiveness; Treats whip, hook, round, tapeworms & giardia
    By The Pen ...not the sword TOP 1000 REVIEWER on February 23, 2013

    Safeguard Goat Dewormer Suspension 10% (100 mg/mL) has Fenbendazole as its active ingredient and can also be used to worm dogs. It is useful against the most common canine intestinal worms including whipworms, hookworms, roundworms and tapeworms. It is even effective at fighting giardia. I use it regularly when worming my own four dogs and I know many multiple dog households, rescues and shelters that use it as well because it is much more economical than Fenbendazole wormers marketed for dogs such as Panacur C.

    DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR DOGS:
    Shake bottle well and then measuring with an oral medication syringe give 1 mL (equal to 1 cc or ¼ teaspoon) per each 5 lbs. of your dog's weight mixed with a small amount of moist dog food (to make sure the dog consumes it all). Repeat this dose for three days in a row.

    Newly weaned pups (6 to 8 weeks of age) should be dewormed at 6, 8, 10, and 12 weeks of age. Treat the dam at the same time as the puppies. Dogs over six months of age should be dewormed, if not monthly, at least twice each year. Each deworming requires 3 daily treatments.

    NOTE: The dosage above is for 20 mg of Fenbendazole per pound of your dog's weight.

    The dosage for goats is only 2.3 mg per pound as opposed to 20 mg per pound for dogs. This is because goats and dogs are different species, have different physiologies, digestive tracts and metabolisms and also because different worms are being targeted in each (you can call Safeguard customer service and they will confirm this as will any veterinarian).

    You might wanna also read the reviews on the main ingredient (Febendazole)......(Dietonatious Earth) is also another choice at even a cheaper price, and it is so safe you can take it yourself........ and kills "all" worms plus has a binder that will take care of giardia and coccsidia......hope this helps.....
