I have had dogs a very long time and I am tired of fighting them to deworm them with the goat Safe-Guard. It is 1cc for 5 lbs of body weight and I have Labs, so I am administering anywhere from 12cc - 17cc at one time.
I can't put it on their food because when ever I use the product I have to use it for at least three days in a row. My dogs either won't touch their food or flip the bowl and so it is just a waste of food.
I can't put it in their mouths as it doesn't matter how far back I get it (blow on their nose, stroke their throat) they all hold it in their mouths for a very long time until I let go and then shake flinging it all over the place or they push it out the sides of their mouth and it goes running down their necks and that is a waste.
I need to find a better way of giving fenbendazole. I have used the horse paste on them. Dogs need 22% and horse fenben is 10% and so I more than double the weight dosage on that per cc. It is sticky and hard for them to get off of the roof of their mouth when I give it so that is an OK alternative...I think?
Does anyone know of anything better that is possibly palatable or easy go give that won't cost me an arm and a leg to deworm 20+ dogs for 5 days in a row? Any thoughts appreciated. I need it to cover rounds and hooks primarily in this area.
If I missed this I'm sorry but what breed of dogs are these? Why do you worm for 5 days?
I use Ivomec on the 1st of every month but it cannot (or should not) be used in certain herding breeds. It is very easy and goes right on their food with no problems and only once a month. Heartworm prevention, round worms and hook worms. If your dogs get tapeworms or whipworms, you will need a different medication from your vet for those.
Ivomec for Cattle and Swine is available at any TSC or Co-Op and it is calculated 1/10 cc per 10 pounds of weight. (Example here is my Rocky weighs 65 pounds, so he receives 0.6 cc on the 1st of the month.)
