Consult your veterinarian for assistance in the diagnosis, treatment and control of parasitism. Specific diagnoses require laboratory testing. Dogs can become infected with several different kinds of tape-worms. Safe-Guard® 4 Canine only kills Taenia species of tapeworms. If you continue to see tapeworm segments in your dog's stool after treatment with Safe-Guard® 4 Canine, consult your veterinarian.
Roundworms and hookworms may pose serious human health risks; regular deworming may help reduce those risks.
