We have a large pit bull that somehow got a bad case of Whipworms as diagnosed by our vet. Unfortunately, we can't afford to visit the vet 10x a year (as one reviewer boasted), especially since we run a dog & cat rescue. So, our vet recommended Safe-guard to kill the whipworms in case our dog got reinfected. Our vet said this is about the only OTC wormer out there for dogs to kill whipworms. Usually, we use Happy Jack (which is an excellent wormer) which kills only tape and hookworms.

Our pit bull Hutch isn't a picky eater at all, so adding this powder to a can of wet dog food worked great. He gobbled every last drop up. After giving him the doses over the 3 days I could tell he was feeling much better. After a month he is still doing great.

For Whipworms I'd definitely suggest this wormer. The only drawback to me is that you have to buy so many boxes for a very large dog. Though, I'm very glad that I am able to buy this without going back to the vet if any of our dogs ever got Whipworms again.

I've dinged them a star because of the "large dog" misnomer ; 2 boxes will be needed for dogs in the 80lb range (1 packet per 40lbs of dog x 3 days), more if you have giant dogs (I've personally never met a little German shepherd--as depicted on the box--who was 40lbs or less).

Our dog wouldn't eat it the powder tossed onto her food, so instead we poured it on our palms and drizzled blackstrap molasses on top, mixing with fingers. I don't think she ever enjoyed medicine as much as during those 3 days!

The worms disappeared, and there were no digestive issues with the medication.

We ordered 3 boxes, as our local store only had 1; at $10/box, it made sense to have an extra set on hand just in case.

After giving my puppy other dewormers time and time again with little to no results, I finally found and ordered this dewormer. I read reviews around the web concerning this product line, and though I was a bit skeptical that it'd work, I decided to feed it to my pup anyway, in the appropriate dosages/over a couple of days.

All I can say is WOW! After the first day's dosage he was worm-free, but I gave him the remaining dosages just to make sure he stayed worm-free.

It has been almost half a year since I used this dewormer with him and he still hasn't had a case of worms!! Should he get them in the future, I will definitely be using this product again!

very easy to use, I was able to get 5 doses out of just one packet because we only have a 5 lb puppy. We used it as soon as it came in the mail with wonderful results, did the 3 day treatment in canned food, she ate it with no problem. I just had to Re-worm her one month later, because I noticed new sign of re-infestation. but she is only 11 weeks, and goes outside all the time picking up leaves and grass, licking the dew off the grass, I would be surprised if she was not picking up things! Any way we got the first 3 doses I needed from the first packet, then 2 more out of that same packet, before I had to open a second packet. Well worth the money. Thanks!

I tried 4 different natural remedies to get rid of my dogs worm at pet smart and none of them worked. I tried this and after 3 days my dog was worm free and feeling better. The only thing was my dog did not like it. He wouldn't eat his food when I mixed it will his food. I tried hot dogs and cheese but he wouldn't eat it so in the end I had to hold his mouth shut until he took it down. That's the only bad thing I have to say and most dogs don't like any medication so that isn't too bad in my mind.

Warning to people who have self-diagnosed their dog - although Safe-guard claims to cure four types of worms, there are multiple types of Tapeworms, and safe-guard does not get rid of THE MOST COMMON TYPE OF TAPEWORM. So if you're dog has tapeworms (looks like small grains of white rice in stool) I suggest a tapeworm-specific product. I just wasted money because I didn't do my research, I guess that's my stupid-tax..

Other then that, I've heard only good things about Safe-guard and it comes highly recommended from many a people who strive not to take their dogs to the vet 10 times a year.

Safe-Guard is a fine product when used as directed. It's been around a long time. I hope the gentleman with the Yorkie didn't give this size dose to his Yorkie; it treats a 40lb dog. This wormer also requires 3 doses on successive days. So if the Yorkie's owner only dosed once, no wonder it didn't work. It comes in powdered form so it can be mixed with food; for dogs that don't like pills, that's a good idea. If you try to give it like a pill, well, yes, what a mess.

As far as I can tell, this product worked great. I'm so glad I decided to get it. My dog is happy and so am I! She has no problem with it when I mix it in wet food. I will definitely be getting it again when it comes time to de-worm her.

My golden would get horrible mucous tinged diarrhea that was incredibly foul smelling. It always started in the middle of the night, and would clear up before we went to the vet. It reappeared every 2-6 months. Giardia is a parasite that is difficult to treat, so be sure to follow up with another round a month later.

I can't tell you how grateful I am to not be awakened by that smell at 3 am, and 4 am....

This product is exactly the same as the ingredient in Panacur. It has been around forever, and works perfectly well for the worms it is intended to treat. Tapeworms require a different product. Obviously, your dog should be diagnosed at your vet's office. Then you will know WHAT type of worms your dog has, and what treatment is necessary. It goes without saying that you must READ the directions as well as get instructions from your vet. I find mixing the powder with canned food or a glob of yogurt is all you need to do to get your dog to gobble it up. Your dog should also be on a heartworm preventative, and most of these products will have the added benefit of preventing several other types of parasites.
