    I have Safeguard Equine Dewormer (25 gram paste 10%) (100 mg/g)

    I need to treat birds that are 5lbs and 15lbs

    Anyone know what the dosage might be or how I can figure it out?
    Thanks!

    Quote:Safeguard paste (fenbendazole), an excellent wormer. Dosage is a "pea" size amount for for the large ones and a "small pea" size amount for the small ones. It might be easiest to put it on a small piece of bread and give a piece to each bird.

    Is there an egg withdrawal period after using Safeguard?

    Normally 14 days after last dosing.

    Do you just give one dose?
    Or the everyday for 5 days dosage?
