Previous threads concerning Valbazen had some posters say that it would cause infertility in dogs. I know I used it on a couple dogs before I heard that and it did a great job but havenít used it since.

I will share a horror story about Valbazen. I used it for several years. I had several beagles years ago. Wormed one of them that was bred by accident when I was worming all my dogs. This female had pups that were severely deformed. I went back and read the bottle. "do not give to bred ewes" which it is labeled as a cattle, sheep, and goat wormer. I have never used it since. The safeguard wormer works good for me. I like the liquid goat form....easier to get the correct dosage.
Because a withdrawal time in milk has not been established, do not use in female dairy cattle of breeding age. Do not use in lactating does.(substitute your female dogs here)
Do not administer to female cattle during first 45 days of pregnancy or for 45 days after removal of bulls. (In other words possibly pregnant or bred animal) Do not administer to ewes or does during the first 30 days of pregnancy or for 30 days after removal of rams or bucks.( Again possibly pregnant or bred animal )
Albendazole(VALBAZEN ) may harm an unborn baby
You may need to have a negative pregnancy test before starting this treatment.
It may not be safe to breastfeed while using this medicine
(Substitute in your dog)
Albendazole can increase your risk of bleeding or infection. You will need frequent medical tests.
Your liver function may also need to be checked every 2 weeks.
Common side effects may include:
headache, neck stiffness, increased sensitivity to light, confusion;
nausea, vomiting, stomach pain;
abnormal liver function tests;
dizziness, spinning sensation; or
temporary hair loss.
Watch this video of a kid goat... pitiful
Never been a fan of safeguard,Valbazen,Fenbendazole.
Think I will stick with PRAZIQUANTEL FOR TAPES
ONE AND DONE.
IT SEEMS THAT EVERYTIME A BREED OR LINE OF DOGS GET POPULAR IT EVENTUALLY LEADS TO ITS RUINATION BY UNINFORMED PEOPLE BREEDING WITHOUT DOING THEIR RESEARCH FIRST.
