Home Remedies for Dog Worms

What can I use at home to get rid of my dog's worms? I have spent lots of money on different dewormers from the store and still he has worms. I would like to try something from home. Please help.

Go to a feedstore and get a bag of diatomaceous earth. Call first and find out if it's sold in small sizes. It cost me $2 for a 1 pound bag.

It can be mixed in the animal's food or applied to its coat. It works and it's cheap:

In case a bug decides to take up residence in their fur. You can protect them and yourself with Fossil Shell Flour (diatomaceous earth). When lightly rubbed into their coats it is very effective against fleas, ticks, lice, and other pests on pet dogs, cats, and their premises. You can puff it into the soft furniture in your house, the rug and all over the basement too.
Diatomaceous Earth Kills Pests Naturally - It is a mineral dust mined from quarries that kills the insects when they come in contact with it and it does vaporize or go away over time.


Once it's in place it works every time and it's nontoxic..

It can also be used as an organic wormer and will kill any worms or parasites the pets may have.

* Cows/Horses get 1-2 oz per day
* Sheep/Goats/Hogs get 1/2 oz per day
* Cats get 1/2 teaspoon per day
* Large Cats - 1 teaspoon
* Kittens - 1/4 teaspoon
* Dog 100 lbs + - 2 tablespoon
* 50 - 100lbs - 1 tablespoon
* Under 50 lbs - 1 teaspoons
* Mini dogs - 1/2 teaspoon ..." -

I would try pumpkin seed oil. Buy the capsules and open one up and put on his food. I don't know how long you would do this but its a vegetable oil. I think that pumpkin seed iol is okay for dogs. It prevents parasites and tapeworms in people so why wouldn't it work for dogs. Dogs can have pumpkin can't they? use 1/2 capsule in am for puppy. Give it a try.

Intestinal worms, Diatomacious earth. Natural. Must be food grade. Even for humans. "They" say 75% of humans have worms. Vets hate me. It cuts down on their sales of poisons. Vaccine poison, worm poison, skin poison. My old fashioned vet loves me for it. Heart worm, you must see and treat via the vet. Very dangerous. If you suspect heart worm or live in an area that has heart worm you must test via the vet.

Hello Lora. I have to agree with "K9Cats". I've never heard of a safe and sure fire home remedy for worms in pets and I don' think it is worth the risk to experiment with store brands or home cures. Please work with your vet to solve this problem as it is not that costly and offers a high return of effectiveness. I am sure you will be glad you did! Good luck and best health wishes for all.

When it comes to parvo, I can tell first hand that you can save your dogs from parvo at home but it is still costly and you must take care of them every 2 hours or so and if you don't catch it in time you will lose them anyways. It is very important to run an IV into them for fluids and to administer a medication that I purchased called "Parvaid and Bactrum" as ordered on the instructions.


You can look this medication up on line and see the costs and providers for it. The only way you can get an IV runner and fluids is through your local vet or animal clinics. Some provided them at a recent cost and some will not. Then every 2-4 hours you run some fluid and administer the medication.

For further information lookup Parvo on the internet and home remedies, I know that you will also need malasses, tea and some other herbs in your house that helps fight the bacteria. The molasses goes on the tongue a few times a day. I have saved 3 of my dogs this way. But please don't forget that the best way to save these dogs is go to the closet Tractor Trailor Supply store and you can purchase a "7 in 1" shot for your puppies at six weeks before they even get sick and this will prevent the parvo.
