Does anyone know of an organic (home remedy) for worms in dogs? I have tried several over the counter treatments and my Yorkie still has worms. I am disabled and can not afford to take him to the vet, and my vet will not let me make payments. It really hurts me to see my dog so uncomfortable. Please help!

Irrespective of the Dogs size ask your Veterinarian for Drontal Allwormer. You can give this to the animal yourself. There are several different kinds of worms. To be honest, for the amount of money you have spent buying "over the counter" products that have apparently proven useless, you could have bought the correct tablet and dosage for your Dog's size and weight. The situation will only get worse without correct treatment.
I have been using DE (food grade) for several years on my garden, my pets (I'm a dog breeder), myself and family for a number of things from high blood pressure, to aches and pains, to treatment and prevention of hook, round, whip, heart, and pin worms in my pets. It also helps with skin issues and a number of other things for animals and people. I swear by it too!
My dogs have these long skinny white worms in their poo. I was told that nicotine from cigarettes gets rid of worms. He said mix it in the can of food and the dogs will eat it and that it won't hurt them at all. Is that true?
All types of nicotine plants are poisonous.
Home remedies for worms in dogs
I have a 4 year old Pit Bull mix. She seems to have worms.
You can get canine dewormer from Amazon or pet stores. However, it is not prescription strength or meant for your specific type of worm. It's a general, all-purpose. That means it may not work the first time.
My Yorkie has tapeworms and the vet is charging too much. What are some remedies to kill tape worms?
By Martin from Houston, TX
If you value your dog's life, then she needs a doctor just like you do sometimes. In the summertime use something (Diatomacious earth or Frontline) to keep the fleas off of her so she doesn't get tapeworms in the first place. I hope you are aware that Tapeworms can and will kill a dog if not treated.
Lemon 1/2 teaspoon for every 4 day for a week it works on my chiuhaua and ive had her since she was born an now she is 16 years i use lemon on all my pups
My mom was given a puppy from our neighbor because it was either find someone or send it to the pound and my mom wouldn't let that happen. Recently, I've noticed, both in her feces and as she laying down, coming out of her rear end, some white larva looking worms (almost positive they're roundworms). I read on a separate site that you could try a home remedy and give her cloves to get rid of them, but it wasn't exactly specific on how much or how to feed them to her (whether to crush them up or whole), so what should I do?

Take this sweet puppy to your Veterinarian.
She is so cute, what kind of dog is she?
I just bought an 8 week old, 3/4 Husky, 1/4 Shepherd puppy from a lady. She told me she dewormed it, but no shots. Is there anyway of knowing if she actually did deworming, as well how often should deworming be done? What is the lowest cost place possible to get the wormer, as I am a single mom with sole custody and tight on funds.
What a beautiful puppy. Do not forget shots that she needs right away. Parvo is common and deadly without shots, and is a terrible and painful death for the dog. You cannot skip her puppy shots. A vet can worm your puppy when you go for shots. Remember that any pet will have Vet bills. You cannot avoid it.
You can buy do it yourself shots at most any feed store buy the 3-1,4-1 or if they only have 5 in 1 its okay. Very important do NOT get any vaccination that has "Lepto-Spira Bactrim" do Not ever get the vaccination that has Lepto-Spira at all this vaccination should be banned because it could cause respiratory or heart failure in ANY dog weighing less than 60++lbs even then the larger breed & size dogs have died from these vaccines w/Lepto-Spira. Have first-hand experience with pure-bred mini-snauzer going into cardiac arrest(after she pooped,shook violently then died because of this vaccine containing Lepto-Spira). Over the counter vaccine is usually around $6-$10 easy to administer if you can't give shot between folds of skin between shoulder blades ask around at store someone will help you for free I'm sure just please stay away from the higher number vaccination(6-1,7-1,8-1 these are the ones that contain Lepto-spiro) Feed store "apologized" for selling it to me saying clerk made mistake should of warned me of dangers with that vaccine but didnt know. Vet told me he knew of several thousand across country dying because of Lepto and to always go to him for shots as he only does 2-1 or 3-1, of course couldn't afford office visit of $85 and the shot fee of $65. Called other vets said same, and cost relative range of $45-85 visit plus shot cost $45-$65. Too much when I can buy 3--1 for $8 at my local feed store.
I have 2 dogs and I have bought the Dog Worms 3 gave the first dose and has not killed the worms. I need to know when is it safe to give the second dose. I have tried the diotanausousearth and had no affect. I am desperate . The vets here want full payment I can not pay the 85.00 that they want.
How do I manage my dog's worms without dog wormer?
