Safeguard (Fenbendazole) 10% Suspension

PURPOSE: GOATS, DOGS, PUPPIES, PREGNANT/ LACTATING FEMALES
TREATS:  ROUNDWORMS, HOOKWORMS, WHIP & TAPEWORMS, GIARDIA
AGENT:  PANACUR, SAFE-GUARD 10% – 100 mg PER ML
ADMINISTER:  ORAL DOSE ONLY

Fenbendazole Suspension (common name Panacur®, Safe Guard®) Fenbendazole is a broad spectrum benzimidazole anthelmintic used against gastrointestinal parasites including: giardia, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, the taenia species of tapeworms, pinworms, It comes in a palatable white suspension. Available in 125 ml, and 1000 ml sizes. Safe-Guard can be purchased without a prescription.

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.

ORAL DOSAGE SYRINGE SIZES NEEDED:

For an accurate dosage use a 1 mL/cc syringe for Puppies UNDER 5 LBS and a 3 mL/cc or 5 ml/cc syringe for medium size Adults (remove needle if necessary). For Dogs over 45 lbs use a 10 or 20 mL oral dosage syringe. 

1 ml. EQUALS 1 cc.

DREAMYDOODLES DEWORMING PROTOCOL

As a dog breeder myself I personally use Pyrantel Pamoate (Pyrantel Dosage Chart) 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 12 weeks old. 

Safe-guard wormer can not be used until puppies are at least 6 weeks old BUT Pyrantel Pamoate can 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.
But again, I am not a Vet so please discuss your worming protocol with your vet.

APPLICATION PUPPIES: For best results, treat puppies at 6, 8 & 10 weeks of age. Dose for three (3) consecutive days – See Puppy Deworming Dosage Chart Below.

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

  • Fenbendazole (e.g., Panacur® or Drontal-Plus®) now appears to be the drug of choice. Used in dogs and cats at 50 mg/kg for 3 days, SOME BREEDERS SAY 5 DAYS BUT VET MEDICAL JOURNAL SAYS 3 DAYS. You decide. Fenbendazole has been shown to be completely effective in eliminating experimental Giardia infections, and with only mild vomiting/diarrhea as potential side effects.

DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR DOGS:
Shake bottle well and then measuring with an oral medication syringe give 1 mL (equal to 1 cc/ml 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. For giardia, repeat dose for 3-10 days in a row.

WORMING PUPPIES

Newly weaned pups should be dewormed starting at 2,4 weeks. I start with Pyrantel Pamoate and then switch to Fenbendazole (Brand Names Panacur C or 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).

Sageguard 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.

COST-EFFECTIVENESS:
You can give a 40 lb. dog 5 monthly three-day treatments with one $20 bottle of Safeguard Goat Dewormer Suspension 10% (100mg per mL) -125 mL (4.2 fl oz) or 1000 mL size bottle depending how many dogs you need to deworm.  You can also buy multiple of the small bottles. 

Pack of 2 Safe Guard Deworm Medication - 125 ML Size Bottles

Pack of 2 Safe Guard – 125 ML Size Bottles

Buy a Pack of 2 Sage Guard 125 ML Size Bottles on Amazon but anything past 2 its smarter and more cost effective just to buy the Larger 1000 ML Size Bottle

Each 3 day treatment would cost you about $4 as opposed to $12 per dog for a 3 day treatment using Panacur C or Safe-Guard. If you have a multiple dog home or you’re a breeder like me then this is a huge savings without risking quality. Same exact medication.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DEWORM MY DOGS?

Apollo as a Puppy - Blue Merle Multigen Labradoodle Puppy - Deworming Puppies

 I generally suggest adult dogs are treated at least every 3-6 months, dependent on individual risk level.  However dosing schedules vary dependent on which product you are using; many combined flea and worm treatments need to be administered or applied every month to remain effective. Also depends on the risk in your location,  where you take them and the age of the dog. 

Most puppies are born with worms, which is why puppies should be wormed at 2, 4, 6, 8 and 12 bb of age, and then every three months for the first year and every three to six months for life with an all-wormer like safe guard. Pregnant and nursing mothers should also be treatetreatedg mating, before the birth of their puppies, and every three months. Safeguard is safe for pregnant and lactating dogs.

IMPORTANT

PLEASE CALL YOUR VET IF YOU NEED ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS – THIS PAGE WAS WRITTEN AS A RESOURCE PAGE ONLY  

I AM EDUCATED AND I HAVE DONE MY RESEARCH BUT I AM NOT A VET. 

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.
