    Wondering what would be the easiest way to worm my peafowls ?
    Someone from Tractor supply recommended me this horse Safeguard pallet 5%.
    Will this work ? And how much to serve?

    The best way is to treat each one orally with Valbazen or Safeguard for goats. The pellets don't have enough medication in them to be effective.

    how much liquid safeguard should you put in say a gallon of water for peafowl, or how much should you give orally with a syringe? which is better

    Safeguard in the water doesn't work, you need to give it orally several days in a row if you want to treat all worms.

    Can you have a vet test some poop for you?

    Hey I got the Safeguard today. They told me to put it in water. But I don’t know how much to use I have 2 peacocks and 1 peahen.
    Any suggestion on how to use this specific one in water?

    you can't put that in the water, you have to give it orally. If you want to treat all worms that easily get you have to give five days in a row.

    Large peacock (6 kg) - 3 ml
    Large peahen (4 kg) - 2 ml
    Small peacock (4 kg) - 2 ml
    Small peahen (3 kg) - 1.5 ml

    One day will treat large roundworms and cecal worms.
    Three days for gapeworms
    Five days are needed for capillary worms.
