Deworming Multiple Dogs or Litters of Puppies with Safe-guard 10% Liquid  Dewormer… 

Mini Aussiedoodle Puppies and their little girl!

Safeguard for Goats – (Fenbendazole) Suspension 10% is great for multiple dog owners and dog breeders as well as pet rescues, and shelters.

As a dog breeder, I personally prefer to use the Safe-Guard suspension fluid (labeled for goats) instead of the granules (labeled for dogs) because it’s just a whole lot easier and more accurate to administer to our puppies. PLUS its more affordable and equally as effective!

The drug Fenbendazole is found in both Safe-Guard® and Panacur C®. The only difference between the two is really just the brand name.

THE INTESTINAL PARASITES THAT SAFE-GUARD TREATS

Safe-guard 10% (fenbendazole) Suspension is labeled for goats & cattle but can be safely used to treat dogs. Safe-guard treats five of the most common intestinal parasites found in a dogs GI tract (*only recommend for some tapeworms)

The 5 Parasites Include:

  • Hookworms
  • Roundworms
  • Whipworms
  • Giardiasis (Giardia)
  • Tapeworms* (some tapeworms)

Deworming dogs and puppies with Safe-guard

*Tapeworms: Safe-Guard is effective against several types of tapeworms but not against Dipylidium Caninum, which is the most common type of tapeworm. Also called the flea tapeworm, double-pored tapeworm, or cucumber tapeworm. If you think your dog has tapeworms, it’s recommend to use a dewormer with praziquantel, or epsiprantel in it. Such as Bayer Tapeworm Dewormer for Dogs on Amazon or Drontel Plus for Dogs on Chewy.com.

SAFE-GUARD DOSAGE FREQUENCY:

Fenbendazole must be given for at least 3 consecutive days in order to effectively treat worms, and 5-10 days for Giardia (Giardiasis) depending on severity.

TREATING GIARDIA

Safe-Guard (Fenbendazole) is said to be 96% effective in treating Giardia in dogs. The 2 most common drugs used to treat Giardia are fenbendazole and metronidazole. Both drugs may be given in combination depending on the severity of the infection. 

SAFE FOR PREGNANT & LACTATING FEMALE?

Safe-guard (fenbendazole) is a very safe over-the-counter deworming medication for dogs and puppies 6+ wks old and yes, also pregnant and lactating female dogs.

BEST SIZE ORAL SYRINGES TO USE:

10 ML Dosage Syringe

For an accurate dosage use a 3 ml/cc syringe for Small Puppies under 5lbs and a 10 ml/cc or 5 ml/cc dosing syringe for Older Puppies and Adults up to 45 lbs. (1ml. = 1cc.)

Use a 10 ML or 20 ML Dosage Syringe for Larger Adults Dogs over 45 lbs so you don’t have to give them several doses using a smaller syringe!

WHY IS SAFE-GUARD FOR GOATS MORE COST-EFFECTIVE FOR MULTIPLE DOG OWNERS & DOG BREEDERS?

Safeguard 10% suspension fluid 4.2 oz bottle on Amazon - Labeled for Beef & Dairy Cows and Goats - Dosage Chart but for Puppies and Dogs!

IF YOU HAVE MULTIPLE DOGS TO TREAT – When you compare buying each one of your puppy’s and dogs a $6 – $10 box of the Safe-guard granules (labeled for Dogs), especially if you have even a medium size litter then buying the 10% suspension fluid (labeled for goats) is a far more affordable option.

IT’S REALLY A NO BRAINER!

You get more dewormer for your money and you can also more accurately dose young puppies under 10 lbs!

Same exact deworming medication, just a different dosing chart and its liquid instead of the granuels so it’s easier and more accurate for young puppies. 

With one 4.2 ounce bottle, you can easily deworm a litter of puppies plus their Mom for the full 3-day course of treatment. It depends on the weight of your puppy/dogs and how many dogs you’re treating but usually, I can treat one mom and her whole litter at least 3x.

♡ Each 4.2 ounce bottle contains 125 mL’s.

♡ Each 33 ounce bottle contains 1000 mL’s.

Each box of the Safe-guard Granuels (labeled for dogs) comes with 3 packets of granueles, each packet is meant to be a single dose for a 3 day course.

The smallest Safe-Guard granuels box is labeled for a 10 lb puppy/dog. Since most 6 wk old puppies weigh under 10 lbs, you kinda have to “guesstimate” how much of the granuels packets to give each puppy.

So, dosing puppies under 10 lbs with the suspension fluid is also more accurate then the granuels. With dogs that weigh over 40 lbs you will need to buy multiple boxes to get the correct dose.

Read my blog post on a more cost effective Pyrantel Pamoate option (labeled for humans) including the dosing chart for dogs!

Safeguard Suspension and Extra Large Breed Dogs? Yes or No?

Only have one or two dogs? Or do you have Large Breed dogs over 60 lbs? In these cases, I would personally recommend just using the Safe-guard 4 granules or the Panacur C granules instead of the Suspension fluid or make sure you have a very large oral dosage syringe!

A BIT OF A MILKY WHITE MESS….FOR LARGER DOGS

The 10% Safeguard suspension formula is GREAT FOR LITTERS OF PUPPIES AND MULTIPLE SMALL TO MEDIUM SIZE DOGS.. but it can get a bit messy and basically a hassle to administer that much liquid orally to a large or giant breed dog without them trying to spit half of it out!!

 For example: A 75 lb dog needs 17 ML’s a day for 3 days! Using the Safeguard granuels added to their food is just much easier with less mess. You will need to buy multiple boxes to dose the Larger Breed dogs.

If you still wanna give the Suspension fluid a try.. at least make sure you have one of the BIGGER 20 ML Oral Dosing Syringes on hand because trying to use a small 3 mL dosage syringe to administer 17 mL’s to your 75 lb large breed dog… is gonna be a PAIN!

🤔 Note: For some strange reason the larger bottle is labeled for “Beef & Dairy Cattle and Goats” but don’t worry it’s still the same exact medication and dosage as the smaller bottle which is only labeled for “Goats”. 

INTERESTING SAFEGUARD FACT:  Cows need a lower dose of Safeguard (fenbendazole) than dogs do! For example you’d give a 100 pound Cow only 2.3 ml’s and a 100 pound dog needs 22 ml’s.😳 That really surprised me!

*Safe-Guard Suspension 10% is not available on Chewy.com (see below for the Safe-Guard granuels for dogs links)

Buying Multiple Bottles

If you don’t think you’ll need the 1000 mL size bottle.  You can also buy multiple bottles of the small 125 mL bottles on Amazon and save some money. 

Buy a Pack of 2 Safe-Guard 125 ML Size Bottles on Amazon — if you’re buying anything over two bottles though, it would be more cost effective just to buy the Larger 1000 ML Size Bottle

IF YOU JUST HAVE ONE DOG TO WORM?

If you just have one or a couple dogs to deworm, I don’t think using Safeguard for Goats is necessary. Just use the Safe-Guard Powder Granule Packets labeled for dogs.

Dosage: Each box includes treatment for 1 Dog.  3 day treatment of 3 individual packets. One packet per day sprinkled on their food for 3 days.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOUR PUPPY/DOG HAS WORMS?

Mini Aussiedoodle "Koa" 8 wks old Blue Merle Female

Mini Aussiedoodle “Koa” – 8 wks old – Blue Merle Female

Symptoms of Worms in Dogs and Puppies 

You can have a fecal test done by your vet and also watch out for the following signs and symptoms.

Symptoms of Worms Include:

  • Swollen belly or “Pot Belly” (with or without pain)
  • Lethargy or weakness
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Weight loss, low appetite or failure to gain weight in young puppies
  • Dull coat (worms are taking the nutrients)
  • Worms in stool or vomit
  • Coughing 
  • Itchy bottoms, scooting their bottom on the floor (does not always mean worms)

Puppies and adult dogs don’t always display obvious signs of a worm at first. So, it’s best to keep them on a regular deworming schedule.

The goal should always be to treat for worms before the symptoms have a chance to become obvious, especially with young puppies. It’s better to assume all puppies have worms and start treating them at 2 weeks old and then every 2 wks until they’re 12 weeks old. Then every 6 months for the lifetime of your adult dogs.

IMPORTANT: Symptoms of worms (listed above) may also be signs of a more serious health issue. If your puppy/dog continues to display symptoms after a deworming treatment, make sure to contact your veterinarian right away.


DREAMYDOODLES NORTHWEST – DEWORMING PROTOCOL

Pele and Her Litter of Beautiful Labradoodle Puppies - 1 wk oldWe start deworming our puppies and their Mom, regardless of symptoms at 2 wks old with Pyrantel Pamoate, we dose them again at 4 wks old with Pyrantel Pamoate.

ATTENTION BREEDERS: Read about a more cost effective Pyrantel Pamoate option along with the dosage chart on my Pyrantel Dosage Chart Page

Chocolate Merle Multigen Labradoodle Male from Tippy's LitterOnce our puppies are 6 weeks old, we switch them over to the Safe-guard Dewormer 10% Suspension fluid (labeled for goats & cattle).

We treat our puppies with Safe-guard every 2 weeks, at 6, 8, 10, 12 weeks old, or until they go home which is usually around 8-10 wks old.

We also make sure to let our families know, they need to continue deworming their new puppies every 2 wks until they’re 12 wks old and then twice a year for the life of their dog.

We highly recommend our puppy customers continue to use Safe-guard granuels which are found over the counter at Walmart, Pet Smart, Petco and online at Amazon.com and Chewy.com.

Safe-guard dewormer is not recommended for puppies under 6 weeks old BUT Pyrantel Pamoate is safe for 2+ wk old puppies.

Both Safeguard and Pyrantel Pamoate claim to be safe for pregnant and lactating female dogs.   

Red Ribbon Merle Aussiedoodle Female  SOLDMy vet recommends we deworm our pregnant dogs 10 days prior to her due date and then again every three weeks while she’s nursing her puppies in order to prevent her from transmitting parasites and/or Giardia.

Adult dogs infected with Giardia may show no symptoms of the disease but can still pass it onto their puppies, which can cause them to have moderate to severe* diarrhea. That’s why it is important to use Safe-guard prior to delivery. Both Mom and any other dogs in your pack that will be kept in the same environment as your Mom and her puppies. Your dogs can be infected with Giardia without you even knowing it…and before it’s too late for your puppies. 

This worming protocol covers all your bases and helps you to send home WORM and GIARDIA FREE puppies.

IMPORTANT: I am not a Vet! Please discuss your dogs & puppies health with your licensed veterinarian.
