Safe-Guard Animal Health Equi-bits Top Dress Pellets, 1.25 lb. is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use This was very easy to use, in fact I fed it to our donkeys directly out of my hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great easy-to-use product Try using a traditional liquid/paste wormer on a donkey and then you'll be glad you found this product! Safe and easy to feed to any animal requiring a wormer. My donkey's and thoroughbred ingest it like regular oats so it removes any stress from worming, PERIOD!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for horses who hate paste dewormers For one of my horses all she has to do is see the dewormer paste and she runs, she knows whats coming and its a fight that normally ends with both of us upset. The Equi-bits are a totally different experience though! She loves them and eats them all up without even thinking twice, it makes deworming so easy. They are a great deal for the money and the time that I save not having to "fight" with my horse is worth every penny. Would recommend in a heartbeat!

How can I see how old the product is and what is the shelf life.

Asked by: Showtown
The manufacture date should be printed on the bottom of the bag near the seam, and the product should be good for at least 2 years after that date.
