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.
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.
