I am working my kennel of GSDs. I'm using safe-guard

Customer Question

I am working my kennel of GSDs for hookworms.
I'm using safe-guard (Fenbendazol 10% oral suspension)
If I'm worming just for the hookworms do I need to treat 3 days in a row?
Or do I worm once now and once again in two weeks?

Hello!

Thank you for your question, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you.

If you are using this product as a preventative dewormer for just a few dogs then the three day course of treatment is all that is needed. If you have an established infection with more than just 2-3 dogs then treat with a 3 day course now and another three day course in 2 weeks. Finally, if there is a really problematic infestation that is difficult to clear it is recommended to do the three day course then repeat in 2 weeks and three months. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions, if it has please let me know by leaving a rating. Dr. Dan
