Therapeutic Class

0.5% Fenbendazole Deworming Pellets

Introducing Safe-Guard® Equi-bits® (fenbendazole), the alfalfa-based pellet that lets you feed and deworm in a single step. Armed with fenbendazole, the active ingredient in all Safe-Guard® products, Equi-bits® pellets control large strongyles, small strongyles, pinworms and ascarids. Safe-Guard Equi-bits is safe for horses, including foals and pregnant mares.

This single dose treatment makes rotational deworming a breeze!

Just combine these palatable pellets with your ration of choice. On deworming day, replace your usual daily ration with an amount equal to the pellets provided in the handy foil pouch. Safe-Guard Equi-bits does the rest. One pouch will treat 1,250 lbs. (body weight) horse in one meal.

Administration and Dosage
For a ONE (1) day treament, add Safe-Guard Equi-bits Top Dress Pellets to the daily ration at the rate of 1.0 pound for each 1,000 pounds body weight (5 mg/lb fenbendazole). A 1.25-pound container will treat 1,250 lbs. body weight.

Feed for ONE (1) day as mentioned above. All horses must be eating normally to ensure that each animal consumes an adequate amount of the medicated feed. Regular deworming at intervals of 6 to 8 weeks may be required due to the possibility of reinfection.

It is safe to deworm pregnant mares and foals with Safe-Guard Equi-bits. Ascarid infections are most common in young animals.

For the treatment of asarids, for a ONE (1) day treatment, add Safe-Guard Equi-bits Top Dress Pellets to the daily ration at the rate of 1.0 pound for each 500 pounds body weight. A 1.25-pound container will treat 625 pounds body weight.
