  • Gastrointestinal worm: (adult and larvae – L3 and L4 stages; liver, lung, intestinal forms)
  • Large roundworm: (Ascaris suum)
  • Nodular worms: (Oesophagostomum dentatum, Oesophagostomum quadrispinulatum)
  • Small stomach worm: (Hyostrongylus rubidus; adult and larvae – L2, L3 and L4 stages — intestinal mucosal forms)
  • Whipworm: (Trichuris suis)
  • Kidney worm: adult and larvae (Stephanurus dentatus)


No Need to Withhold Feed

There is no need to withhold feed prior to feeding the dewormer feed, so swine continue to grow.

Safe To Use
SAFE-GUARD 0.9% Swine Dewormer can be used for all swine, including growing pigs, pregnant sows and boars. And, because there is no withdrawal period, it can be fed right up to slaughter.

Feeding Directions

Mixing and Feeding Directions

Each pound of SAFE-GUARD® 0.9% Swine Dewormer treats 1,000 pounds of pork body weight in a 3-12 day treatment. Mix or top-dress and administer as the sole ration so swine receive 4.08 mg of Fenbendazole per pound of body weight within the three to 12 day period. For individual treatments, mix or top-dress 0.53 ounce of this product for each 100 pounds of body weight each day for 3 consecutive days (2.13 ounces per day for each 400 pound sow each day for three consecutive days).

Treat all sows within seven days of farrowing. Treat all pigs at 40.0 to 60.0 pounds. Re-treat all pigs at 90.0 to 100.0 pounds. (Re-treatment should be at four to six weeks from last treatment.) Pigs finished on dirt should be dewormed at 140.0 to 150.0 pounds. Purchased feeder pigs should be treated upon arrival.

Provide fresh, clean water at all times.
