@dawg53 Maybe you are right. I truly hope so it is. But do keep in mind that some heavy smokers get very old too. Do not claim anything without research, and certainly not on one individual case. After many years of ‘fighting’ against the tobacco industry it is proven that smoking is very bad for youre health, and imo you should not recommend to use this medicine if there is no proof that this is safe.

Your claims that Fenbendazole has not been researched thoroughly, and there is no proof that it is safe is highly false, and if you are going disregard the accounts of its effectiveness and safeness against the many poultry owners, and certified avian veterinarians who use it regularly, you can refer to the several studies below, and the European Medicines Agency (EMA), who have approved it as an effective treatment for gastrointestinal nematodes in laying hens.

"—In the United Kingdom, fenbendazole oral suspension is approved for treatment of gastrointestinal nematodes in laying hens at a dose of 1 mg/kg (0.45 mg/lb), PO, for 5 days with a 0-day egg withdrawal and 6-day meat withdrawal'

The US Food and drug administration, have also approved Safe-Guard® AquaSol (fenbendazole oral suspension) for treatment of some worm species, in chickens. Which is not technically SafeGaurd Goat Dewormer, but contains the same ingredient "Fenbendazole".

It seems to me that the discussion of whether Fenbendazole is safe, or effective, is quite clear

Not to me. 1 England is not Europe. .
2 more important. In Europe (and other countries?) it is allowed to fabricate and sell lots of unhealthy stuf . Take PFAS (tefal pans, foam in fire extinguishers). This is very poisonous but they allow it to be used because the factory nows how to bent/ go around rules. Time after time. Same with Monsanto's roundup (now Bayer). They now its bad for the health of insects and insect eaters. But its so hard to stop them to sell these kind of products.
I just don’t believe companies who make big money selling medicines that are not properly tested.

If you knew anything about benzimidazoles, to include fenbendazole, they are very safe wormers.
If you dont want to use the product or a derivative, then dont use any. That's your choice.
Your point has been made. Let it go at that.
