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 at 4 weeks until puppies are 6 weeks old at which point I switch them to the Safe-guard dewormer (Fenbendazole). I dose them again at 8 weeks old,  usually they last 3 days they’re here. 

Dewormer should be administered every 2 weeks until they’re 12 weeks old and then as a prevenitive every 6 months. 

Safe-guard wormer is not recommended for puppies under 6 weeks old BUT Pyrantel Pamoate can and should BE STARTED at 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 WORM and GIARDIA FREE puppies.
I am not a Vet so please discuss your worming protocol with your vet as well.

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 the most effective treatment for giardia whixh is very common in puppies. 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 wormer granual packets marketed for dogs.

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. Fenbendazole has also been shown to be completely effective in eliminating Giardia infections with potential for only mild side effects such diarrhea/vomiting.

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.

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 multiples of the small bottles if you don’t need as much. 

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 granule packets labeled for Dogs. 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.

JUST ONE DOG TO WORM?

I recommend just buying the Safe-Guard box of granules on Amazon if you only have one dog to worm.

The Safe-Guard Powder Granule Packets Dosage: Includes a 3 day/packet Treatment.  One packet a day in their food for 3 days. Every 3-6 months or as needed. Depends on lifestyle how often treatment is needed.

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.  

How long will a dog poop worms after being dewormed?

Pooping out worms after deworming is a very normal thing that shouldn’t make you worry at all.

Deworming drugs will kill eggs, larvae and adult worms. You might start to see dead worms and larvae in the puppy’s stool in as few as one or two hours after being given the medication, but it can take up to 10 to 12 hours before you see anything. (with a roundworn infestation it actually took until the 3rd day of treatment to see dead worms in the 💩 poo) Within two weeks, the stool should no longer contain any worms.

If worms are found, one more 3 day treatment of Safeguard should be given in 10 days. Also treat the Dam and any other dogs on your property again. If puppies are under 16 weeks old they should be dewormed every 2 weeks regardless if worms are found or not. 

Do all new puppies have worms?

Not all puppies have worms, but it is very common for puppies to have roundworms or hookworms, either passed in utero or through a mothers’ milk. Because worm infection is so common, we normally deworm puppies just to be safe.

Parasite prevalence and type of parasite chart in puppies:

parasite-prevalence in puppies - Safeguard Dosage chart for puppies and dogs

Can worms be passed from dog to human?

Most parasitic worms are very species-specific. This means that worms from dogs don’t get into people, and worms from people don’t get into dogs. Very rarely some dog worms will try to infect people and can make them sick, but the worms come from places where lots of dog eggs have been shed, like parks and playgrounds, and not necessarily from a single pet.

In the United States, the most common worm in children is the pinworm. Dogs and cats don’t get pinworms and therefore can NOT give pinworms to children.

Small Children who play in the dirt and put things in their mouths should not be allowed to play where animals have passed feces. Practice good hygiene and hand washing when cleaning up puppy poop. 

There is a dewormer labeled for humans on Amazon called Pyrantel Pamoate by Columbia Factories that I have personally used on myself for Roundworms..  (after reading too much about worms online). I don’t think I actually had them but I wanted to be safer then sorry I guess.  I had no side effects from the medication and I never expelled any roundworms or worms period. Dosage instructions for humans is on the back of the bottle. 

SAFEGUARD IS NOT APPROVED FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION! DO NOT INGEST IT.

Pyrantel Pamoate for Puppies? 

Pyrantel Pamoate Suspension 50 mg 32 oz - Dewormer for Puppies Roundworms and Pinworms in Humans

Buy on Amazon

You can use pyrantel pamoate when deworming your younger puppies as well but since it only moderately treats for Roundworms. I do recommend using Safeguard starting at 6 weeks  since it treats a wider range of worms and parasites as well as Giardia. Unfortunately,  puppies must be 6 wks or older to use Safeguard but can be as young as two weeks to treat them using Pyrantel Pamoate.

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.

Signs of Overdose: Fenbendazole is very safe – if you gave them more then the suggested dose by accident,  your dog may drool excessively, be lethargic, tremble, or appear unsteady on its feet —these signs are temporary and should disappear after 24 hours.

Allergic Reaction: 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.
