Alfalfa based wormer
Makes a good rotational wormer along with Ivermectin.
April 25, 2017
Easiest product to administer!
Being disabled, I no longer have the speed or agility required to worm my smart, finicky horses. They can smell the syringe wormers long before I make my appearance! I just mix this product in with a little of their supplements or sweet feed. I have happy, healthy, parasite free critters!

Safe-Guard 0.5% Alfalfa Multi-Species Pellets
We run a horse rescue, & Sanctuary. (Bounds Horse Haven Sanctuary)So we have all kinds of horses come through here. I have never had ANY horse curl their lip up at this de-wormer. It is easy, and simple to use. Just mix it with their grain, you are done! They eat it up! They ALL seem to love it! It is a lot cheaper than the equi-bits specifically for horses. This is a multi-species, de-wormer. When worming 30 plus horses, you can't beat the price. The tube wormers, are just a fight to try to use on some horses. But this is an all around excellent choice for keeping a horse healthy, and happy! I would recommend this product, to any horse owner.

how many mg in 1# of wormer?
A shopper on Mar 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 2.27 mg per pound body weight per 1000 pound horse which in turn would mean 2270 mg
I cannot clearly see the bag. This works for cattle and horses but does it work for goats?
A shopper on Apr 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I am pretty sure you can. I use for horses but i believe it it fine for goats as well.
Does it come with a measurement scooper? or do we need a scale to figure out the 2270mgs?
A shopper on Mar 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: There is no scoop - this product is fed by weight. A scale would be a good idea for accuracy. This dewormer is fed on a single day in place of the animal's grain ration. A pound contains 0.5% Fenbendazole and is designed to treat a 1000 lb animal. If the animal's weight is 500 lbs then half a pound should be fed; likewise, if the animal's weight is 1200 lbs then 1.2 lbs should be fed.
how much do i feed a 1000 lb animal?
gladyb on Feb 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Feed 5 mg fenbendazole per kg body weight in a one (1) day treatment (2.27 mg fenbendazole per pound of body weight).
can this be used for horses?
jan w on Dec 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I give it to my ornery, picky ole mule and he eats it just fine. Horses are listed first on the back of the package.
So i have been looking at this product for a while now, bought it at my local feed store a few yrs back for beef steers had just got to raise up. The cattle guy i got my steers from was not to trust worthy on health care so as a precaution i would de lice and worm them just for safe measure and used this product on them and they ate it up without taking a second glance. Want to really invest in this product as i run a small livestock farm. and have done as much research as i can to find either this multi species or something more specific. So my question is if this a multi species and works for cattle, goats and horses, would it be safe for sheep as well or can sheep be wormed with a feed through wormer ? have been racking my brain on this for sometime and don't really want take the leap and be the first to experiment if has not been tested on them yet, as if the risk is to great. This yr hasnt been a good one for my flock.
ashley s on Mar 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This product is rated for cattle only. To find out about use on other species, we would have to refer you directly to the Manufacturer: www.merck.com or phone 1-800-521-5767.
Is this safe for rabbits? How often, what's the dosage if necessary. Thank you
Gadiza A on Jan 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: ive never used it on rabbits, actually ive never heard of anyone worming rabbits, you might need to ask a vet for a better answer, i would think that if you adjust the dose for the weight of the rabbit , then there shouldnt be a problem, 1 bag is meant for a 1250 lb horse, so i would go from there, maybe a few pellets at most
Is this safe for weanlings?
A shopper on Oct 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sorry I honestly do not know if it is safe for weanlings. I'd advise you to ask your vet. Great product however, I have used on full size horses as well as a mini.
does it work on bots?
sherry t on Jun 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. Fenbendazole doesnt work on bots. Something with ivermectin is your best bet. If your horse is hard to worm, you might try giving them treats like applesauce or jelly in a big syringe. Once they get used to that, sneak in the wormer. I learned that trick from Clinton Anderson.
Is this safe to give a mare who is l0 months pregnant?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Ask your Vet. Normally the mare should have fecal tests to determine parasite burden.
can you feed it to sheep ?
peggy h on Dec 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It basically says most animals can take this product and there is a picture of a big horned sheep on there and the big horned sheep is mentioned in the directions for dose.
