We used 5x the recommended dose of Safe Gaurd for a couple does we suspected had tape worms. They cleared right up and started putting weight back on.



Synantic Bovine 22.5% wormer is very good also

Ben - I've just read the label on my Panacur, and as jeffreylee had suggested, Panacur is suppose to get rid of tapeworms.



I know that it comes in powder as well as liquid.

crocket - With the powder, I've always top dressed the feed, which is one big pain trying to make sure every one got their dose. Ya got to give just enough feed of course to where they will eat it all up at one ''go of it'', or else the dose just gets further out of your control.



The liquid I've used on fawns and I don't know why you couldn't use it on a tame adult doe by simply syringing it into their mouth...did I say ''simply''? Is anything ever simple with these guys?!

The liquid Panacur that I have is 100mg/ml and the dose for the removal of tapeworm in beef cattle is 4.6 ml per 100 lb.

So, the dose really isn't too awful big to give to a tame doe via syringe if ya had/wanted to.



As far as I know crocket, I don't think there is any particular sign for tapeworms as opposed for any other worm...just take a fecal in and have the vet check it out.

Actually crockett, I acquired this liquid Panacur I have here for the fawns. I've not actually used it on adults for years.

I typically used Ivomec and wormed them twice a year, and I can't remember the last time a fecal came back positive, but it's been 4, 5 maybe more years since we've had a worm here.



I think if Panacur is what you plan on using crockett, 2 or 3 times a year should be often enough, but periodically take a fecal in in-between those treatments to make sure you don't have to worm more often.

Best for you to stay ahead of them, instead of them ahead of you!

Hope you're well crockett.

I've used a dog and cat injectable tape wormer for years on very good animals that I wanted quick results on. The product name is Praziquantel made by TEVA. I've had no problem with the use of this product.. I had tape worms in the kids in the picture on my name information. Tape worms adults were gone after one dose with a follow up a few weeks later.

Then to make sure the herd was clean I top dressed with Panacure twice.

I've had tape worm twice in thirty years and have no idea where or how this pen was infected. I'm told mice carry them.

I read the labels on safe guard and ivomec and neither said they would get rid of tapeworms. My vet said the same thing. We werent actually looking for tapeworms when we took in a fecal sample... but ended up finding some eggs. Vet said tapeworms wont kill anything and theres not really any way of telling you have them other than under a microscope.

I found my tapeworm problem when we were looking at the poop. It had segments of the tape worm in it. They looked like grains of rice. I understand this is one of the ways how they spread from animal to animal as these things hatch and move into another animal. That is what I saw the first time we had tape worms from an animal we bought from a zoo. We wormed with dog injectable wormer and we got 40 inch tape worms out of that animal which filled a big coffee can half full. It was gross to say the least.
