Featured Advice from Our Experts
Researchers have been experimenting with vaccines that prevent worm infection in goats for several years. Dr. Jim Miller, parasitologist at Louisiana State University, has been kind enough to provide information and understanding of this concept. Dr. Miller worked with Dr. David Smith from 2000-2005 testing these "hidden gut" antigens made into vaccine form on goats and sheep at Louisiana State University.

Goats must not be slaughtered for food within 6 days following treatment. Because a withdrawal time in milk has not been established, do not use in lactating goats.

"Works Great if properly used"
If your goats are not already resistant, and if used at our vets rec. 10-12 cc per 100 pounds. We use the FAMACHA method of worming, NEVER have we routinly wormed. We also do not worm at six weeks or after delivery unless by the eye chart they need it, and of course as long as no symptoms are present. We use the eye chart always as your eye can play tricks on you! We rotate our pastures, and do not overload them. Feed premium horse hay and if needed as the case of some pets we have if a goat requires more worming we rotate. We have built and bred our closed herd to be parasite resistant, not wormer resistant.

"Great all-around dewormer"
Easy to dose. I use it on all my animals, my cats, dogs, goats, pony, cows and even my chickens. I use the pelleyed form for my cows and they really eat them well. Can be used on tiny rescue babies which is great.
"Doesn't work for goats"
There is a huge resistance to this medicine in the US. It has no effect on the worms. Too many goat's have been under dosed causing the parasites to develop an immunity to it.
"WORKED GREAT FOR MY PUPS"
I KELP USING WALMART WORMER AND PUPS KELP DYING SO I STARTED THE SAFEGUARD AND I GIVE THEM SMALL AMOUNTS AND THEY ARE HAPPY HEALTHY BABIES
I have been using this wormer for my 6 wk old designer puppies for several years with great results. Vet recommendation was .5ml per pound. I have tiny puppies in the 1-3 pound range. This dosage is not to strong to harm them but strong enough to take care of the problems. I do not use on any puppy less than 6 weeks of age. Use correct dosage per puppy for 3 days straight.
"Worked great for pups"
I used this for my litter of lab pups. My vet gave me the dosage of 1cc/ml per 5#. My babies were LOADED with round worms (mom was a recent rescue dog) & this kicked them right out, at that dose, one a day for 3 days. Did it every 2 weeks.
"Dose is to Low"
I agree with the earlier review. The dose is to low. This does work but not with the dose listed.
"Ask Vet for dosage"
Fenbendazole is one of only a couple of wormers that is approved for use in meat goats. Be sure to check withdrawal times. Also the dosage needs to be higher than recommended on the bottle to work. Please check with you vet for correct dosages.
