How to Deworm Your Dog Safely

This post is from Dogs Naturally magazine

Using these natural, organic foods can prevent your dog getting worms and assist in expelling them from your dogs body. They will maintain the probiotic equallebrium of your dogs gut and therefore assert a healthy lifestyle.

Fortunately, with modern eating habits and healthy lifestyles, it is not very often that our pets get worms, however every now and then I hear from dog owners who have rescued a dog or puppy that has worms and they are concerned that the harsh deworming drugs available can strip the good gut flora from their dogs intestine meaning their pup is unable to metabolize their food effectively. With this in mind I did some research and found this fantastic article from Dogs Naturally Magazine

Personally I recommend adding some of these foods and herbs to our dogs diet on a fairly regularly basis to maintain a healthy gut, I will also add them to our family's meals because they do look rather tasty. However, if your dog continues to have worm probablems I highly recommend seeking help from your local vetinarian.

Neither our dogs or family have ever had worms, maybe this demonstartes how well these foods work!

1. Fermented Vegetables

Improve your dog’s gut health to help expel worms. Start slowly and work up to 1 to 3 tsp per day per 20 lbs of body weight.

2. Pumpkin Seeds

Contain cucurbitin that paralyzes worms and eliminates them from your dog’s digestive tract.

3. Black Cumin Seed

Very safe and can work for most worms. Try to buy whole seeds.

4. Grated Fruits And Vegetables

Make your dog’s digestive tract less welcoming to worms. Try carrots, cucumber, watercress, greens, squash, and fennel, pineapple, papaya, pomegranate.

5. Vegetable Juice

Your final tip will lead into your post’s conclusion. For example, “Lastly, knowing just a little bit about SEO can go a long way in helping your blog succeed. You can learn more about SEO in our guide.” Then be sure to add a link to your guide here.

6. Garlic

Garlic in moderate amounts can fight worms as well as conventional dewormers. Use chopped raw organic garlic and let the garlic sit for 10 to 15 minutes before giving it to your dog.

7. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

ACV creates a more alkaline digestive system that’s less attractive to parasites.

8. Thyme

Thyme is especially useful for hookworms. Use fresh or dried herb, not essential oil.

9. Parsley

An easy natural dewormer for dogs. Cook fresh parsley down and strain out the solids, then freeze it into ice cubes.

10. Bone Broth

Promotes digestive health to help the immune system kill worms.

11. Diatomaceous Earth (DE)

Food-grade diatomaceous earth can reduce the number of worms, but may not work for tapeworms.

12. Chamomile

Can prevent and expel roundworms and whipworms. Can also reduce inflammation from the worms.
