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.

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!

How much per 150 lbs?
A shopper on May 13, 2015
Best Answer: For a 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. So for 150 lbs, feed approximately 0.12 lb of Safe-Guard. You will need a digital scale for accuracy.

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. So for 150 lbs, feed approximately 0.24 lb of Safe-Guard. You will need a digital scale for accuracy.

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.

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.

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.
