Safe-Guard® Products Give You More Than One Way to Solve Deworming Problems

If your idea of convenience is more than choosing between a big bottle and a small bottle, then Safe-Guard is for you. Safe-Guard gives you more options for effective deworming to fit your specific operation, including blocks and non-handling formulations. Fact is, it can cost up to $2.00/head in labor to gather cattle, so deworming with a Safe-Guard non-handling formulation really makes sense.
Safe-Guard is indicated for use in dairy and beef cattle for the removal and control of:
• Lungworms.
• Stomach worms: Barberpole worms, brown stomach worms, small stomach worms.
• Intestinal worms: Hookworms, thread-necked intestinal worms, small intestinal worms. Bankrupt worms. Nodular worms.

HANDLING AND NON-HANDLING:
IT PAYS TO HAVE A CHOICE OF FORMULATIONS.

Safe-Guard®/ Panacur®: Fenbendazole-based cattle dewormers

When livestock producers use anthelmintic
parasite-control products in their herd and fail to see a response, there are a number of factors to consider. Was the timing of use appropriate to minimize re-infection? Did the dosage match the weight of the animals? Or did the product fail to achieve a response because the parasite population has become resistant to the dewormer of choice?

To address this information void, Merck Animal Health, a leading global animal-health company, brought together the top experts in the field of parasitology for an in-depth, roundtable discussion on anthelmintic resistance in the United States.

    Anthelmintic Resistance: An Examination of its Growing Prevalence in the U.S. Cattle Herd

New Value in an old proven test!

Sub-clinical disease caused by parasite infection has a costly effect on cattle health and performance, including reproductive losses, hampered immune development, reduced appetite and lower weight gain. During the past decade, safe and inexpensive products have been available to minimize parasite infection. But what would happen if those tools stopped working? Though the body of research on anthelmintic resistance in U.S. cattle herds is a small but growing area, the threat of diminished efficacy in deworming treatments has caused concern among the industry’s leading veterinary parasitologists.
