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 guidance.
-Weaned pups (6-8 weeks of age) should be dewormed 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.  SafeGuard only kills Taenia species of tapeworms.  If you continue to see tapeworm segments in your dog's stool after treatment with SafeGuard, consult your veterinarian. 
Roundworms and hookworms may pose serious human health risks: regular deworming may help reduce those risks.

Product Use:
SafeGuard is safe for use in puppies 6 weeks or older and adult dogs, including pregnant females.  Do not deworm a dog or puppy that is sick.  Consult your veterinarian for diagnosis of the illness.

Is safe to keep them in house and after third dose should I see them still they are round worms and hire possible is it for humans to catch them and my dog is 4 to 5 pounds and I treated with safe guard canine dewormer 50mg/kg(22.7) what if I still see one after the third dose and when should they compete be done?

Best Answer: Yes, your dog should be kept in the house, especially with your dog being so small. Did you calculate the proper dosage for your dog with the wormer? Worms in the intestinal tract live and reproduce in cycles. People can see alive worms in the stool prior to worming if the worms are in the shedding cycle, as well as eggs. If you see worms in the poop, then the worming medicine is working - whether worms are dead or alive when they come out. Be sure to remove the poop/stool from the area and throw it away so as not to recontaminate the dog. You can repeat the worming approximately 3 weeks later if you are concerned that you did not get all the worms. In addition, if you haven't already done so, taking a stool sample to the vet so they can determine which intestinal worm is present and make sure you have the right deworming product. Not every product covers every worm type.
