Did Safeguard for capillary worms 5 days, do I repeat in 10 days?

    I just used Safeguard to worm the flocks for capillary worms, doing the 5 days in a row. Do I need to repeat this in 10 days? And if I do need to repeat it, do I do it for another 5 days in a row?

    I would repeat it once. I'm not an expert on worming, but once should take care of the worm eggs.

    Some vets will suggest that, but I cannot find any references that say to do it. Did they have capillary worms?
