safegaurd: afalfa worming pellets for sheep?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi, I'm tring to find some de-worming "goods" for my sheep that I rescued and I believe they need worming.
At the feed store there is the Safeguard pellets to feed them, but it doesn't list sheep or goats in the label. It says its for cows, horses and pigs.
I looked at the label and there is no copper in it.
Is it a bad Idea to get that or is there something else I can get for them?
Thanks smile

I have nigerian dwarf goats.  When I worm my horses I worm them.  I get the tubes of wormer paste and put a drop about the size of a chocolate chip on my finger and stick it in their mouth.  It goes by weight.  I am sure your sheep are bigger.  Maybe the size of a kiss, lol. 
I was told by my vet that they can have issues with Ivermechtin resistant worms.  So switch rotate the type you use.

Here in the hot humid South, Safeguard (panecur) has become ineffective on our adult goats.  We use it on babies because it is a very safe wormer and we don't want to shock their innards when they are only a few weeks old.
We rotate between Cydectin, Valbazen, and IVermectin plus....no Valbazen for the pregnant does.
Don't know about sheep...but you could check Jeffers Livestock for Sheep specific wormers

Hi, I contacted a friend of mine, who raises sheep....I asked her about the pregnant Ewe needing wormed. She recommended PANACURE. She said this is the BEST, and safest wormer for your pregnant girl.
