*Packet size is the daily dose. The dog must be treated with this dose for 3 days in a row. You should weigh your dog to make sure you are using the right size and number of packets. If your dog's weight is in-between the suggested dosing sizes, it is safe to use the next higher size. For example, a 15-pound dog should be treated with the 2-gram packet. Give Safe-GuardŽ Canine to your dog by mixing the daily dose with a small amount of the usual food. Make sure your dog eats all of the medicated food. You may need to moisten dry dog food to aid mixing. Repeat the daily dose for three days in a row.
Other Information: Diagnosis of Parasites: Specific diagnoses require laboratory testing. Consult your veterinarian for help in the diagnosis, treatment, and control of parasitism. Dogs can become infected with several different kinds of tapeworms. Safe-GuardŽ Canine only kills Taenia species of tapeworms. If you continue to see tapeworm segments in your dog's stool after treatment with Safe-GuardŽ Canine, consult your veterinarian.
Recommended Deworming Schedule: Deworming schedules may vary depending on the climate where you live and the activity of your dog. The following schedule should be used as general guidance. Newly weaned pups (6 to 8 weeks of age) should be dewormed at 6, 8, 10, and 12 weeks of age. Treat the dam at the same time as the puppies. Dogs over six months of age should be dewormed at least twice each year. Each deworming requires 3 daily treatments. (See Directions) Storage: Store at controlled room temperature (59-86°F).
