Product Summary:

Safe-Guard® Equi-bits™

Safe-Guard® Equi-bits™ are alfalfa-based pellets that let 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 are safe for all 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 do the rest. One pouch will treat 1,250 lb. of body weight in one meal.

All horses must be eating normally to ensure that each animal consumes an adequate amount of the medicated feed.

For a one-day treatment, add Safe-Guard Equi-bits Top Dress Pellets to the daily ration at the rate of 1 lb. for each 1,000 lb. of body weight (5mg/kg fenbendazole). A 1.25-pound container will treat 1,250 lb. of body weight.

Feed for one day as above. No prior withdrawal of feed or water is necessary. Regular deworming at intervals of 6 to 8 weeks may be required due to the possibility of reinfection. Ascarid infections are most common in young animals.

For the treatment of ascarids, for a one-day treatment, add Safe-Guard Equi-bits Top Dress Pellets to the daily ration at the rate of 1 lb. for each 500 lb. of body weight (10mg/kg fenbendazole). A 1.25-pound container will treat 625 lb. of body weight.

Warning: Do not use in horses intended for food. Keep this and all medication out of the reach of children. Not for use in humans.

Store at or below 25 degrees C (77 degrees F). Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism.

How many horses does one bag deworm?
Linda on Mar 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: One entire bag (a little over a pound) will deworm one average sized horse (1000 - 1250 lbs). I guess you could divide it in half for a pony. Yes, using one bag per horse is a little pricey but for me it's a nice break to easily deworm in the feed for a horse that is difficult to paste worm!
Is it safe to use on a older horse that hasn't been de-wormed in a long time?
Virginia Lynn H on Nov 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is. What I normally recommend is to worm your older horse, wait 1 week then worm with an ivermectrim paste. If your old horse hasn't been wormed in quite a while, this will clean their worms out and you can move to a regular rotation wormer. In addition, you should consider putting your old horse on a sand clear program as you probably have sand build up in the gut. Your best plan for an older horse that is without regular care is to start a system of maintenance that will get & keep them on track. Good Luck.
should you split the ration throughout the day for horses who do not get other grain or feed in one feeding?
Kelly Q on Jul 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I always feed this in one feeding. I don't know if it would be as effective if it is fed in a split ration. If you are concerned about giving it all at once you might contact your vet or the manufacturer.
How much would you dose to. Mini ?
Carie G on Jul 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The dosage depends on weight:
For a one-day treatment, add Safe-Guard Equi-bits Top Dress Pellets to the daily ration at the rate of 1 lb. for each 1,000 lb. of body weight (5mg/kg fenbendazole). A 1.25-pound container will treat 1,250 lb. of body weight.

Feed for one day as above. No prior withdrawal of feed or water is necessary. Regular deworming at intervals of 6 to 8 weeks may be required due to the possibility of reinfection. Ascarid infections are most common in young animals.

For the treatment of ascarids, for a one-day treatment, add Safe-Guard Equi-bits Top Dress Pellets to the daily ration at the rate of 1 lb. for each 500 lb. of body weight (10mg/kg fenbendazole). A 1.25-pound container will treat 625 lb. of body weight.
With 12 horses, any larger quantities?
A shopper on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am sorry this is the only sized bag we carry for this item.
I've been told that it is best to rotate wormers every other time. Is there another pellet type that Equi-Bits can be rotated with?
A shopper on Mar 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Sooo wrong. Safeguard is good and very safe.the old way was to rotate not so now. They have found that in doing so it has caused resistance to the medication. I know this to be true with sheep goats and alpacas/llamas. I don't know about horse but would assume the same applies. Check the net and ask several vets.
