Product Summary:

Safe-Guard® Equi-bits™

Safe-Guard® Equi-bits™ are alfalfa-based pellets that let you feed and deworm in a single step. Armed with fenbendazole, the active ingredient in all Safe-Guard products, Equi-bits pellets control large strongyles, small strongyles, pinworms and ascarids. Safe-Guard Equi-bits are safe for all horses, including foals and pregnant mares.

This single-dose treatment makes rotational deworming a breeze! Just combine these palatable pellets with your ration of choice. On deworming day, replace your usual daily ration with an amount equal to the pellets provided in the handy foil pouch. Safe-Guard Equi-bits do the rest. One pouch will treat 1,250 lb. of body weight in one meal.

All horses must be eating normally to ensure that each animal consumes an adequate amount of the medicated feed.

For a one-day treatment, add Safe-Guard Equi-bits Top Dress Pellets to the daily ration at the rate of 1 lb. for each 1,000 lb. of body weight (5mg/kg fenbendazole). A 1.25-pound container will treat 1,250 lb. of body weight.

Feed for one day as above. No prior withdrawal of feed or water is necessary. Regular deworming at intervals of 6 to 8 weeks may be required due to the possibility of reinfection. Ascarid infections are most common in young animals.

For the treatment of ascarids, for a one-day treatment, add Safe-Guard Equi-bits Top Dress Pellets to the daily ration at the rate of 1 lb. for each 500 lb. of body weight (10mg/kg fenbendazole). A 1.25-pound container will treat 625 lb. of body weight.

Warning: Do not use in horses intended for food. Keep this and all medication out of the reach of children. Not for use in humans.

Store at or below 25 degrees C (77 degrees F). Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism.

Great product
This is a good option when you need a feed thru dewormer. It is safe and palatable, and works well.

Super Stuff
These feed extremely well. Far better to use the feed-thru de-wormer than pastes, to my finding.

Great for hard to worm horses
Works great for my gelding who spits paste wormers out. Although, if you have a decent sized horse, you'll need at least two.

Horse Pellets or feed through pellets
I used the horse pellets because my horse is a little snot when it comes to worming. I had just used these pellets, and within two weeks of using it, I had to pull my mare off of the pasture and put her on a paste. She was so infested with worms, she is now on a three week rotational worming schedule and has to be checked again in three months. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

Worked Great!
I decided to try these as I have one horse that is not a fan of the paste. Used these for all 5 horses.- so easy just mixed it in with some grain. No problems....everyone ate it right down. Little bit pricier with 5 horses, but definitely a time saver for me, and no waste or spit out paste to deal with and no stressed out horse!

I have a horse who will not be caught when she sees anything that looks like it may be associated with wormer. I mix this with her food and she gobbles it up. No problem!
DARLENE T on Mar 10, 2016
Easy to use, my horses like the taste and I have one that you can not get a tube down his gullet so this works perfect. Great price too.

It makes de-worming a horse easy.. just put it in the feed.
Donna T on Feb 6, 2015
My mare will not take paste wormers. I have had her since she was 4 and she is now 21, never been able to give her any paste wormers without a big battle and a significant loss
of product. We have both been very "colorful" after attempting paste products.! But now it is so easy, she has no problem munching the pellets and they do a good job of deworming her.

The reviews were good and I needed wormer, but don't like paste as one horse won't eat is and it gets wasted on the other.
JULIA T on May 6, 2014
My mare thinks she is being poisoned when she is given pastewormers. You would not believe the drama worming causes. Throwing herself around, mouth gaping open. I should film it... Using the Equi-bits, she thinks that she is just getting alfalfa in some grain. No drama and it is quickly cleaned up.

how often do i need to feed my horse this?And how much do i need to feed y horse this?
Sydney W on Aug 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: For the treatment of large strongyles, small strongyles, and pinworms:
For a ONE (1) day treatment, add Safe-Guard Equi-bits Top Dress Pellets to the daily ration at the rate
of 1.0 pound for each 1,000 pounds body weight (5 mg/kg fenbendazole). A 1.25-pound container will treat
1,250 lbs. of body weight.

For the treatment of ascarids:
for a ONE (1) day treatment, add Safe-Guard Equi-bits Top Dress Pellets to
the daily ration at the rate of 1 lb. for each 500 lbs. of body weight (10 mg/kg fenbendazole). A 1.25-pound
container will treat 625 lbs. of body weight.

Treatment is usually given twice a year or with a veterinarian's advice after a fecal egg count.
How much per 150 lbs?

A 1.25-pound container will treat 1,250 lbs. of body weight. So for 150 lbs, feed approximately 0.12 lb of Safe-Guard. You will need a digital scale for accuracy.

How often do you give Equi Bits? I rotate every 2 to 3 months. Is this a daily wormer??
Thanks
Sherry
sherry t on Feb 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Sherry,
I have three hungry mouths to feed and have found over several years with all three, Equibits was the easiest way to worm all three as equally as you can. It is not a daily wormer in the smaller baggies,one bag per 4 legged child mixed in with their regular complete feed pellets. One of my 4 legged children is sometimes a picky mare and eats them right up even though she may only get them like you feed,every two or three months.The time between depends on weather and hay quality.The cost of a large bucket of daily wormer was originally one of the reasons I tried the one shot Equibits packages. Hope this helps.
Can use use the Equibits like the Panacur powerpak feeding one bag per day for five days?
Colleen B on Jan 9, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. That would be an overdose and really not necessary. Just feed it all at once according to the package instructions. I use it on my wild pony rescues until they can tolerate oral paste. It also is limited in that it doesn't kill all types of worms, so in my opinion it should only be used as part of a more varied deworming program, or as a temporary measure for horses who won't tolerate paste deworming.
Will this work for bot fly eggs?
A shopper on Nov 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, this will not work for bot fly eggs. This works on the inside of the horse and bot fly eggs are found on the outside of the horse. Remove the eggs with a bot fly egg scraper.
The paste safeguard says 25g equals 1 dose. This bag only has 1.5g/lb and is 1.3 lbs, so has 2.95 grams total. So what is the actual dose needed per 1000 lb horse?
Docanderson on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: One bag (1.25 lbs) will treat one 1,250 pound horse for strongyles and pinworms. I know--the description is confusing.
Is it safe to give 6 months foal?
Shirley D on Apr 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Ask your Vet before giving a de-wormer to a young foal. My animals are all low shedders; I give this to the donkey and to the mini mule because they will eat it all.
Can you use this at this time of year n be effective?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I successfully used Equi-Bits in August last year to treat a horse who was very wormy when I bought her. I also use it every summer on all my horses. They eat it up - so much easier than paste! I use ivermectin or moxidectin paste in spring and fall for the bots.
I gave this to my 1 yr 5 months old filly but only gave her half the dose that you recommend. I gave this to hr on Monday can I give her another half dose to give her the recommended dose she needs. She has had small and large strongyles coming out and her belly is still bloated so I was wondering if I could do the other dose 4 days to a week apart?
SARAH G on Sep 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can do that. When I have rescued horses that had high worm loads per vet fecal test, I reworked every 10 days for 3 times per vet recommendation. Safeguard, ivermectin product, then safeguard again is what they had me do. Another alternative is safeguard sells a 5 day power dose. It is double strength given once a day for 5 days. Hope this gives you an idea what to do. And always consult vet if needed.
Does this product cover tapeworms?
A shopper on Apr 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Equi bits are not intended for tapeworm. It is great for a horse that is uncooperative to paste worm and a rotational schedule. If your horse has tapeworm, you will want a product that contains Praziquantel. Hope that helps.
I have the safeguard .5% pelleted dewomer, how much would I feed my malnourished 240 # filly?
A shopper on Nov 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The dosage varies depending on which parasites you want to target. Please see the full instructions in the product description. We would also recommend that you check with your veterinarian, who will be familiar with your horse's entire health picture.
Does it have a Apple taste?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't know. I never tried it. LOL! Teasing you but the only help I can give is to say that my horses eat it every time w/o question. Actually, I believe it is an Alfalfa flavor. I mix it with their normal grain and not one pellet remains. Hope that helps somewhat.
How many horses will this worm?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Depending on the size of your horses, this bag will treat 1,250 pounds of horses. The average horse weighs 1,000 pounds so you should be able to treat 1.25 horses.
