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/PRECAUTIONS: Fenbendazole is VERY safe. Doses of up to 100 times the recommended dose of 22.7 mg per pound have been tolerated without serious side effects. It’s 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.

LIQUID MUST BE SHAKEN WELL – REFRIGERATE AFTER OPENING

DEWORMER COMPARISONS

Safe-Guard treats:

  • ROUNDWORM
  • HOOKWORM
  • TAENIA TAPEWORM
  • WHIPWORM

Safe-Guard® is the ONLY over-the-counter canine dewormer that treats ALL 4 major intestinal worms in dogs. See How They Stack Up

COST-EFFECTIVENESS:

It’s cheaper and also easier to administer the Safeguard bottles of liquid fenbendazole labeled for cattle and goats for puppies and adult dogs.  It’s the same exact medication for cattle and dogs,  but the dosage chart listed on the bottle is for cattle and goats. Hence the need for this dosage chart (see below).

You actually need to give cows less then dogs. For example you would give a 100 pound Cow only 2.3 ml’s and a 100 lb dog 22 ml’s.

I personally don’t recommend using the liquid formula for dogs over 60 lbs because of how much you need to give them at that weight. The liquid is GREAT FOR PUPPIES AND SMALL TO MEDIUM SIZE DOGS.. BUT I’d go with the Safeguard granuels for dogs past the 50-60 lb size!  You’ll also need to buy a couple of the “40lb large dog” size boxes for a 80 lb dog.   

A bottle of liquid suspension Safeguard can be used to deworm your whole litter for 3 days for about $27 instead of buying individual boxes of the granules for each dog and puppy at $4 to $10 per dog/puppy (price depends on the size of the dog and also where you buy it) and you gotta make sure each puppies eats the whole bowl of food you add the granuel packets too and the smallest packets are for a 10 lb dog so you gotta guess how much to give them if their under 10 lbs etc. With the liquid you can just use an oral dosage syringe and the dosage chart below. 

You can also buy multiples of the small bottles on Amazon for a little less. 

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

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.

Dosage: 1 ml per 5 lbs – 1x a Day for 3 days

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.

Fenbendazole as a Treatment for 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 3-5 days in a row.
