Safe-Guard vs Ivomec Plus

Safe-Guard Dewormer Paste vs Ivomec Plus Injectable Dewormer Comparison

Are the same thing Both are 10%Fenbendazole and only effective for treating tapeworms in goats:

See the little grooves in the plunger? These are marked for weight increments. You dial the little round dial to the weight of the animal and the plunger stops at the correct dosage- This is where you will see 500lbs (one 'click' as we call it)- one click or 500lbs will treat a 165 pound goat (3 times the recommended dosage per pound as for cattle or horses) NOTE: Look at the top image - see the white dial on the end of the plunger? Before you use this the first time you need to screw this all the way to the other end close to the actual tube of medication, Then you start screwing it up in increments according to weight
I have created this side by side comparison chart to show you why safeguard is not as effective against internal gastrointestinal parasites as Ivomec and Ivomec PLUS- Keep in mind when ever you use Safe-Guard you MUST use it at TRIPLE the recommended dose on the package when administering to goats! So when a click on the tube says it will treat a 500lb calf, this means it will treat a 165lb goat.
IN Addition: Safeguard and Panacur have been discovered that they really only work well on tapeworms in goats - they are barely effective against any of the gastrointestinal "killer" worms

Injection has been proved to effectively control infections and to protect cattle from re-infection with Dictyocaulus viviparus and Ostertagia ostertagi for 21 days after treatment; Oesophagostomum radiatum, Haemonchus placei, Trichostrongylus axei, Cooperia punctata, and Cooperia oncophora for 14 days after treatment.

Extend the period of persistent activity against Dictyocaulus viviparus (Lungworm) from 21 days to 28 days after treatment.
