    I wormed the older boys with Ivomec plus yesterday because their barber pole egg count was higher on fecals.......today I noticed when Jake happened to poop with me standing there, he had a few tapeworms segments.......so can I now worm safely with Safeguard tomorrow since worming with the Ivomec plus yesterday?
    Thanks, Denise

    ok.....I have been told that Ivermectin does not get adult worms, only the larva......so what do you worm with for adult worms?????????

    Did you give the wormer orally? I did a quick search and found no warnings on a drug interaction between Ivermectin and Febendazol(Safeguard).... Waiting a few days may be best, just to be cautious :wink: And just to be sure you get the eggs that aren't hit by it, worm again with the safeguard in 10 days.


    Hmmm...I did not know that about the adult worms, from what I understood, the initial worming killed adults then a repeat was neccesary to kill the hatched eggs. :shrug:
