Yes, we use Valbazen every couple years as a 'just in case' for flukes.

I think I am going to have to do that. Had a Hfr pass a tape worm while being preg checked.
The Vet hadn't seen one that big. Something needs to be done.

Valbazen gets tapeworms, but there is a window of time to use it. Safeguard does also, at 1.5x normal dose (if I recall correctly).
I saw a picture of a tapeworm that was 18' long. No kidding. Yet we are told that tapeworms do no economic harm. We had them every time we ran a fecal so we finally treated them with Safeguard. It was pretty evident the better condition of the cows afterward; and didn't take long to see the difference.

I use the same lambda-cy I spray my cotton with.
It ai in ultra saber is the same thing.
I put a 25 gallon atv sprayer on the feed truck and spray out of the window or put someone on the back.
Also use it on back rubs.
Sorry though, it's not a once a year shot.
Oh, only cost about 35 dollars a gallon and only use a few ounces to 25 gallon of water. Real cheap.
Think 8 oz. maybe a little more.
