Can't comment on Fenbendazole but I once injected my bitch with .6cc of 1% Ivermectin 10 days before whelping and again several days after whelping (because of mange) and had no ill effects. The puppies also showed no signs of worms and no effect from the Ivermectin. I did consult with the someone who had participated in trials using Ivermectin on various animal species. I add this only in case anyone's hunting dog comes down with mange during pregnancy but please follow the advice of your vet...don't send your lawyer my way :wink:

All the time. Safeguard is safe and effective.

Just double checked the formulary, yes fenbedazole is safe for pregnant and lactating bitches. Ivermectin is also safe but dosing of ivermectin from large animals product is tricky so always consult with your veterinarian.

Sorry I did not catch that part, although I do not think 20 days of fenbendazole would hurt the dog I think you would be wasting your time and money. To 5 day runs at breeding and just before whelping would be just as effective.

I also use the safeguard in the goat container at 1cc per 10 lbs of weight for 3 days in row.

Hi,
Just a FYI the dosing for Safeguard (fenbenz) is 1cc per 5 lbs that is for 10 % goat /cattle wormer. Give for 6 days to cover giarrdia.
