    I didn't realize it was a four day withholding period for safeguard. We drank the milk at 24 hours. Two of us have a belly ache. Not sure if related. What is the risk for drinking the milk? I can't find any answers.

    you will probably be fine. I've drunk milk after giving quest horse paste (the strongest form of Cydectin) Your mind is just messing with you. But if you start vomiting/diarrhea, seek medical attention

    I agree. Im betting you will be fine. We have drank milk the day after giving ivomec with no ill effect many times. Like Nigerian dwarf goat said..if you get worse, seek medical attention.

    Fenbendazole is a pretty safe dewormer, I wouldn't worry.

    I bet we unknowingly ingest much more toxic things from industrially made food/cookware :)
    Not that I recommend frequent deworming for humans.

    Safegaurd should not be an issue unless someone in the family has a sensitivity to it. Heh you basically just dewormed yourselves lol. Seriously high margin of Safety with it. <wink> I would expect a bit of poop issues for a lil bit but otherwise no problems.

    Thanks! I feel a lot better today. I took a mega dose of probiotic, and felt fine this morning. we are going to hold off on the milk another two days.
