    Has anyone ever used the safegaurd dewormer paste made for horses on their pigs? I read somewhere that you can use it but can't remember how much per so many pounds of body weight to give.

  3. Hi! I've never used the paste, but I use Safe-Guard Dewormer for Beef & Dairy Cattle, & Swine. It's pellets and you just topdress their food with it for 3 - 12 days depending on the infestation. I used it for 3 days, had a fecal done and my pigs are worm free. I paid $9.00 for a 1 pound box from the feed store. You use 1 Tablespoon per 50 pounds of body weight. Hope this helps! Cristi
