Yes, you can and it's recommended. We use Dectomax

You sure can but if your herd is negative for mange Safeguard EZ scoop or one of the other 1.8% Safeguard products is probably a better choice for de-worming sows before farrowing. Many producers just do it when they load sows into their maternity stalls.
