    Re: safe guard goat wormer

    I've just used the paste, but I dose them, and then repeat in about 10 days. For heavily infested dogs I've seen people dose 3-5 days in a row, but I've never done it that way, since I have little problem with the nasty things.

    Mine get the SG twice a year, once after the last freeze in the spring, and after the first freeze in the fall/winter.

    It seems even if I dose for 3 days, I would still need to redose in 10 days to get all the newly hatched ones, since it takes that long for them to hatch.

    Re: safe guard goat wormer

    I just talked to my country vet. He told me that my Safeguard 10% liquid for goats is O.K. for dogs too. He said that because of the difference in the digestive system, (it passes through a dog very fast compared to a goat), the dog’s dose is 10 times that of a goat. He said for a 100 lb dog you would want to give it 23 ml once a day for 3 days.
    Formula: (0.23 x 10 lbs of body weight). So my 80 lb dog would get 18.4 ml once a day for 3 days. Because this is so much, I am going to give it in 2 doses a day.
    He also said that he recommends doubling the doses recommend for goats. I also have goats.

    I also want to note that I think people are over dosing their dogs on liquid Ivermec. The max I give my 80 lb dogs 0.3ml Ivermec (NOT 3.0 ml) for cattle and swine as a maintenance dose like you would find in Heartgard. Many are recommending 0.1 ml per 10 lbs. That is NOT a maintenance dose. That is a dose for a dog that has worm problems. Here is a good article on this. http://www.espomagazine.com/vet/apr96.htm

    Re: safe guard goat wormer

    This is good inf. I have never heard of this before. I have always just let the vet take care of it. Most of the time, he will send filled syringes home with me so I can give it three days in a row.

    I'm sure it must be a lot less expensive to buy a tube instead of paying an office visit. But in fairness, I am normally taking the dog there for other reasons too, such as shots/boosters.

    Re: safe guard goat wormer

    First you need to weigh your cat and find out her/his exact weight. I use the same dose as for dogs. But really, take your cat to a vet and weigh it first, they shouldn't charge u anything just to use their scale really quick. I always use the scale at Banfeild Animal Hospital inside of Petsmart. (Other than that, don't ever use Banfield, they are greedy heartless bastards.)

    I'm just very curious, have you never been curious or wondered about something?



    The manufacturer's directions for goats is 0.6ml per 20 pounds.

    The dose for dogs being 1ml per 5 pounds= 4ml per 20 pounds.

    You can see the goats dosing is much, much smaller.

    Briteday added on the part that you have to dose it for 3 days in a row so thats good to know, I hadn't heard that yet.

    Do you have to dose again in a couple weeks or are they good after the 3 days and thats it?

    Thank you everyone whos been responding I really appreciate it.
    worm for 3 days, wait 2 weeks and then worm again for 3 days. sorry the info is late but maybe it will help someone else )

    ruminants take much less of most oral meds than carnivores.

    Re: safe guard goat wormer

    Knowing this thread is old I was hoping to see if using panacur horse (fenbendazole) in a 25 gm tube/hypo looking thing would work out if the dosage was right and still be viable as a dog wormer let's say a ten pound dog?

    Re: safe guard goat wormer

    If you get the dosage right and there are no additives that are bad for dogs, yeah, it's the same stuff. The problem is getting the dosage right when it's made for such a large animal. You might not be able to measure out a small enough dose for a 10-pound dog.

    Re: safe guard goat wormer

    Thanks Willowy I see all over the place the dosages for this stuff and if I'm not mistaken a gram is the same as a milliliter and I'm seeing numbers all over the place per pound of dog like from 2ml to 16ml per pound and 25ml is for a ll00 pound horse! Ergo the enquiry.

    Re: safe guard goat wormer

    ml (milliliters) and mg (milligrams) are not the same. . .different formulations have different amounts of mg per ml. So say one formulation has 50 mg per ml and the dose for your dogs weight is 50 mg. You would give one ml. But if the formulation has 100 mg per ml, you would only give half a ml. So you have to keep an eye on that.

    Milliliter is a volume measurement and gram is a weight measurement. One ml of water weighs about one gram. But not all substances weigh the same as water. So you can't go by that for everything.
