This is a question that needs to be answered by a vet, not online. A mistake could be extremely hazardous to the dog, puppy or cat on the receiving end. (And I'm sure there is no one answer - it must be based on the size of the animal)

For the Safe-Guard Suspension 10%, 1000 ml Bottle (liquid, not paste):

Dog: 1cc (1ml) per 5 pounds of body weight for three days in a row.

Cat: Same as above.

Do not use this the same month you give Heartguard (or whatever you are using for heartworm prevention).

This is an extremely safe wormer and it is better to overdose slightly than underdose. We use it at our rescue and for our own pets - both cats and dogs.

If you only have one dog and/or one cat it may be more cost-effective for you to buy the 3-day Safeguard or Panacur packets over the counter, but for those of us in rescue or breeding, buying a $100 bottle of Safeguard that lasts a year and worms dozens of animals...
