MIXING DIRECTIONS:

Thoroughly mix SAFE-GUARD® 20% Type A medicated article with non-medicated cattle feed according to the table below to obtain the proper concentration in the Type B medicated feed. The following table gives examples of how some Type B medicated feed concentrations can be prepared:

Thoroughly mix SAFE-GUARD® 20% Type A medicated article with non-medicated cattle feed according to the table below to obtain the proper concentration in the complete Type C medicated feed. Prepare an intermediate pre-blend of the Type A medicated article prior to mixing in a complete feed. Thoroughly mix the required amount of Type A medicated article in a convenient quantity of feed ingredients (a dilution of one part Type A medicated article and nine parts grain carrier is suggested), then thoroughly mix this pre-blend with the rest of the feed ingredients to ensure complete and uniform distribution of the Type A medicated article.

WARNING: KEEP THIS AND ALL DRUGS OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN. NOT FOR USE IN HUMANS. The Safety Data Sheet (SDS) contains more detailed occupational safety information. For customer service, adverse effects reporting, and/or a copy of the SDS, call 1-800-211-3573. For additional information about adverse drug experience reporting for animal drugs, contact FDA at 1-888-FDAVETS, or http://www.fda.gov/reportanimalae.

OTHER WARNINGS: Parasite resistance may develop to any dewormer, and has been reported for most classes of dewormers. Treatment with a dewormer used in conjunction with parasite management practices appropriate to the geographic area and the animal(s) to be treated may slow the development of parasite resistance. Fecal examinations or other diagnostic tests and parasite management history should be used to determine if the product is appropriate for the herd, prior to the use of any dewormer. Following the use of any dewormer, effectiveness of treatment should be monitored (for example, with the use of a fecal egg count reduction test or another appropriate method). A decrease in a drug’s effectiveness over time as calculated by fecal egg count reduction tests may indicate the development of resistance to the dewormer administered. Your parasite management plan should be adjusted accordingly based on regular monitoring.

Withdrawal Periods and Residue Warnings: Milk taken during treatment and for 60 hours after the last treatment must not be used for human consumption. Cattle must not be slaughtered for human consumption within 13 days following last treatment with this drug product. Not for use in beef calves less than 2 months of age, dairy calves, and veal calves. A withdrawal period has not been established for this product in pre-ruminating calves.
