    I think its time to do another safeguard worming since the loss of my 5mth pea.

    I used wazine a week ago, how soon can i safely use the the safeguard?..and jus to double check- is it recomended to use this for just 1 day, or longer?--thanks

    You can use it any time as it is a totally different chemical, and way better I might add.
    I beleive, 3 days is best on safeguard, doseage would depend on all birds age, orally is best, it's not water soulable.

    Quote:How are you giving it to make sure of the dosage ? The safeguard I bought is a big tube syringe. I have been pushing some into a 3cc syringe so I can measure it. I was just wondering if there is an easier way to do it.

    Safe Guard you can mix it with water, 3 cc per. gal. Dont use the paste.

    Melissa I only worm them three time a year. Never use the Wazine.

    Ivomec one tratment, last 30 days.
    then I use Safe guard for 3 days then 3 days again 10 to 14 days later.

    May, late Aug. and Early Nov.

    You maybe worming to much.

    Yes, I have the liquid Safeguard for goats. My peas waterer was constantly being knocked over by them, but since I opened up their pen, I have it in a much better place now. Im actually wondering if they may not have got enuf of the safeguard when i used it a couple of months ago- I used it for 1 day, it was 3cc in their gal waterer, but it was tipped over & I was afraid to OD them..so i didnt give them anymore.

    *Worming my birds is all new to me, I never knew it needed to be done until I started reading this forum.

    I gave my chixens the wazine & have always used the ivermec since it controlls mites & lice so well- SOme relatives of mine have several chixens in my barn since they got the fever..theirs have been dropping like flies, whenever I find one of theirs dead or dying its always the same thing- very thin, no meat on the breast- I wonder if its ok to give them the safeguard also?​

    It's good for most any type of fowl. By the way, the Wazine only treats large round worms, so not really effective as a broad spectrum wormer.
    And, yep SWHEAT, use the liquid form (drench for goats) . Paste would be fine orally I would think.

    I have a neighbor who is a veterinarian. He said to wait a couple weeks between treatments with different wormers and most important to follow directions for particular product for what that's worth
