Diagnosis of Parasites:

Consult your veterinarian for help in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism. Specific diagnoses require laboratory testing. Dogs can become infected with several different kinds of tapeworms. Safe-Guard Canine only kills Taenia species of tapeworms. If you continue to see tapeworm segments in your dog’s stool after treatment with Safe-Guard Canine, consult your veterinarian.
Roundworms and hookworms may pose serious human health risks; regular deworming may help reduce those risks.

Product Use:

Safe-Guard Canine is safe for use in puppies 6 weeks or older and adult dogs, including pregnant bitches. Do not deworm a dog or puppy that is sick. Consult your veterinarian for diagnosis of the illness.

Adverse Reactions:

In US clinical studies 3 of 240 dogs (about 1% of the treated dogs) had vomiting associated with use of the product.
