Oral dewormer for horses & cattle
Safe-Guard Paste is an oral dewormer for horses and cattle. It is used for the control of large and small strongyles, roundworms, and pinworms in horses and the removal and control of lungworms, stomach worms, and intestinal worms in beef and dairy cattle. It works on a wide variety of parasites, killing both larvae and adult parasites. The active ingredient is Fenbendazole: a highly effective anti-parasitic medication that kills parasites by interfering with their cells’ structure and transport, which inhibits the parasite’s ability to metabolize, therefore inhibiting its ability to maintain its energy production. Safe-Guard Paste is safe for any breed of horse, even foals and pregnant mares. This paste is safe for dairy and beef cattle and does not require a milk withdrawal period. It is also safe for the environment and around other farm animals and pets. This paste is easy to give to your horse or cattle: with its tasty apple cinnamon-flavor, it makes the de-worming treatment hassle-free and ensures less waste. Safe-Guard Paste 10% is available in three sizes: 25 gram, 92 gram, and 290 gram.
Each gram of Safe-Guard Paste 10% contains 100 mg of fenbendazole and is flavored with artificial apple-cinnamon liquid.
