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.
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.
