Item Information

Canine Dewormer - For dogs only, 6 weeks and older.

    For the treatment and control of:
    • Tapeworms (Taenia pisiformis)
    • Roundworms (Toxocara canis, Toxascaris leonina)
    • Hookworms (Ancylostoma caninum, Uncinaria stenocephala)
    • Whipworms (Trichuris vulpis)
    Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism.
Active ingredients (in each dosage unit): Fenbendazole Granules 22.2% (222 mg/g)

Directions: The daily dose for Safe-Guard Canine is 50 mg/kg (22.7 mg/lb.) of body weight. You should weigh your dog to make sure you are using the right dose; i.e. correct gm amount and appropriate number of pouches.

    Your dog must be treated with the following dose for 3 days in a row.
    • 10 lb. dog - use 1 gm pouch (daily dose)
    • 11 to 20 lb. dog - use 2 gm pouch
    • 21 to 30* lb. dog - use 1 gm + 2 gm pouch
    • 31 to 40 lb. dog - use 4 gm pouch
    • 41 to 50* lb. dog - use 1 gm + 4 gm pouch
    • 51 to 60* lb. dog - use 2 gm + 4 gm pouch
    • 61 to 80* lb. dog - use two 4 gm pouches
    • Over 80* lb. dog - *combine pouches to obtain recommended daily dosage
    Mix daily dose with a small amount of the usual food. Make sure your dog eats all the medicated food. You may need to moisten dry dog food to aid mixing.
Recommended Deworming Schedule: Schedule may vary depending on the climate where you live and the activity of your dog. The following schedule should be used as a general guideline.
  • Weaned pups (6-8 weeks of age) should be dewormed at 6, 8, 10 and 12 weeks of age.
  • Treat the dam at the same time as the puppies.
  • Dogs over 6 months of age should be dewormed at least twice each year.
  • Repeat the dose for 3 days in a row.

Diagnosis of Parasites: Consult your veterinarian for help in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism. Specific diagnoses require laboratory testing. Dogs can become infected with several different kinds of tapeworms. Safe-Guard Canine only kills Taenia species of tapeworms. If you continue to see tapeworm segments in your dog's stool after treatment with Safe-Guard Canine, consult your veterinarian.
Roundworms and hookworms may pose serious human health risks; regular deworming may help reduce those risks.

Product Use: Safe-Guard Canine is safe for use in puppies 6 weeks or older and adult dogs, including pregnant bitches. Do not deworm a dog or puppy that is sick. Consult your veterinarian for diagnosis of the illness.
Adverse Reactions: In U.S. clinical studies 3 of 240 dogs (about 1% of the treated dogs) had vomiting associated with the use of the product.
Storage: Store at controlled room temperature 68-77°F (20-25°C).

HUMAN WARNING: Keep out of reach of children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Some Clarifications This is a very good product but you need to understand its use. This is good for round, hook, whip worms, BUT only some tape worms. It does NOT work on the type of tape worms that are from fleas. It only works on tape worms from eating rodents. Even the Safe Guard site is not entirely clear about this. This dewormer is especially safe and is also the best dewormer for Giardia and Coccidia but it has to be administered for a longer period to be effective. The treatment for tape worms from fleas is Praziquantel. If your dog has worms that look like tiny rice grains (that move), use Praziquantel. Sentry HC WormX treats all worms (including tape worms from fleas) with Praziquantel and Pyrantel Paomate in flavored tablets for dogs. I use both for cats too but I reduce it to give a precise dose by weight (very important not to guess at this).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice for four common intestinal parasites I researched the different ingredients in dewormers. Independent veterinary sources report that fenbendazole (ingredient in Safe-Guard) is excellent at ridding dogs of round worms, whip worms and hook worms. Although not as effective against tape worms, it is a good treatment for them. Some live worms may be expelled as they detach and then die after being exposed to the environment outside of the dog. As with most dewormers, encysted worms may become active after the initial treatment and actually produce another group of active worms. So, a followup treatment is normally required in one to three weeks.

what is the difference between the 4G and 2G products for the canine dewormers?

Asked by: Rhett
The difference is in the amount in the packet. The each pouch of the 2g treats 20lbs whereas each pouch of the 4g teats 40lbs.

I have 8 husky puppies that need dewormed. They are 8 wks old and weighs less then 10 pounds would 2 boxes of treatment be enough to treat them all because that would be 24g of meds right

Asked by: Thrutheblood
Your dog must be treated with the following dose for 3 days in a row. 10 lb. dog - use 1 gm pouch (daily dose). This product contains three 4 gm pouches, so you would need to buy the 1 gm pouches.
