    Hi. I have what probably amounts to a stupid question, but...

    Are these two wormers the same? They both have the same active ingredient, 10% Fenbendazole, 100mg/g, but are packaged differently. One says it's for 'beef cattle' and the other one says it's for 'equine'. I know that manufacturers will sometimes package the same product differently to appeal to a wider range of customers, but I just want to make sure before I dose my chickens with it. I can't seem to find the paste that specifically says it's for 'goats', so I thought I'd use one of these if I could.
    I have used Panacur in the past. Thanks for your help!

    P.S. I'll be worming silkies, so is the dose for the safe-guard paste still 1/4 ml ??? Or should I use less? I'd like to worm my turkeys and geese with it too if that's possible. If so, what would be the dose for each of them?

    Thanks again for your help!

    It will work fine and a pretty safe wormer so u should have to worry about any affects from overdose

    If somebody could find the time to help me out with these wormers for a second, I'd really appreciate it...
