DREAMYDOODLES WORMING PROTOCOL
As a dog breeder myself I personally use Pyrantel Pamoate (NEMEX-2) starting at 2 wks old and again every 2 weeks until puppies are 6 weeks old at which point I switch them to the Safe-guard dewormer (Fenbendazole) administered every 2 weeks until they’re 8 weeks old or every 2 weeks until they go home. Fenbendazole can not be started until puppies are 6wks old. I use fenbendazole as a Giardia preventative/treatment and also because it covers a wider range of parasites. Safe-guard wormer can not be used until puppies are at least 6 weeks old BUT Pyrantel Pamoate can and SHOULD BE STARTED when puppies are 2 WKS old. I also treat my Dams at the same time. This worming protocol covers all our bases and helps us to send home parasite free puppies.

Safeguard® removes and controls a broad spectrum of stomach and intestinal worms. 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.
THE SAFEGUARD FOR GOAT IS THE SAME MEDICINE USED FOR DOGS… just at a much lower price and a different dosage then the one made for dogs.
Fenbendazole and Giardia
Safeguard (Fenbendazole) 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.
Treatment of Giardia infections in dogs and cats:
Fenbendazole Safe-Guard or Panacur*** 22.5 to 25 mg/lb once daily 3 days
DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR DOGS:
AMAZON PRICE: $14.50 & FREE Shipping
Newly weaned pups (6 to 8 weeks of age) should be dewormed starting at 2,4 weeks with Nemex 2 and then with Safeguard® 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 days, Once a day OR 5 days for Giardia. Once a day.
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).
IN GOATS fenbendazole targets: Stomach Worms (Haemonchus contortus, Teladorsagia circumcincta).
IN DOGS: fenbendazole targets: Roundworms (Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina), Hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum, Uncinaria stenocephala), Whipworms (Trichuris vulpis), and Tapeworms (Taenia pisiformis) as well as being effective against giardia.
Because the dosage for using fenbendazole in dogs is 20 mg per pound and this suspension is 100 mg of fenbendazole per 1 mL (equal to 1 cc), that means 1 mL (or 1 cc) per 5 lbs. (confirmed by my dog’s veterinarian).
Panacur C dog wormer uses 888 mg of fenbendazole per 3 day treatment for a 40 lb. dog which is equal to 22.2 mg per pound so their dosage is just slightly higher than 20 mg per pound.

ADULT DOSING CHART:
SHELF LIFE: This product has a shelf life of 3 years stored at controlled room temperature. I wouldn’t give it after the expiration date on the bottle as it would be less effective, although not harmful, because products of degradation are not toxic.
SAFETY: Fenbendazole is very safe. Doses up to 100 times the recommended dose of 20 mg per pound are tolerated without serious side effects. It is also safe for use with pregnant and lactating dogs as well. An accidental overdose may cause minor vomiting and diarrhea. It is also possible that dogs might experience hypersensitivity reactions to dying parasites. If facial swelling, hives, scratching, vomiting, shock, seizures, pale gums, cold limbs or lethargy ensue, your dog may be experiencing an allergic reaction. In cases of accidental overdose or allergic reactions you should contact a veterinarian immediately.
