    I have 3 does who have a heavy worm load with tapes. I dose 1cc / 25 lb yesterday with valbazen yesterday. Should dose again?

    It should be dosed at 1cc per 10 lbs. I would probably go ahead and dose them again tomorrow.

    You can use Safeguard at 3-5 times the dose on the bottle for 3 days in a row. You have to worm pretty heavy for tapes to make them detach and leave the body. When I worm with Valbazen, my vet has me give it at 1cc per 10 lbs 3 days in a row.
