Natural Treatments for a Puppy With Worms?

I have a 6-7 wk old Husky/Lab male puppy named Damian that is vomiting up 5-6 inch long worms. I'd prefer to do a natural treatment; is there anything you can suggest?

Your puppy has a severe problem that needs treatment immediately! I searched online and immediately found this site:

This informaton below is from this site-please take your puppy to your vet immediately! Note that you and other people can also become infected with the worms.

Roundworm infection can have numerous negative effects. It is a common cause of diarrhea in young animals and can cause vomiting as well. Sometimes the worms themselves are vomited up which can be alarming as they can be quite large with females reaching lengths of up to seven inches.

The worms consume the hosts food and can lead to unthriftiness and a classical pot-bellied appearance. Very heavy infections can lead to pneumonia as the worms migrate and, if there are enough worms, the intestine can actually become obstructed.

It should also be noted that human infection by this parasite is especially serious (see below). It is important to minimize the contamination of environmental soil with the feces of infected animals so as to reduce the exposure hazard to both humans and other animals.

Very cute puppy. Please do not attempt a home remedy for this serious problem. I understand you'd prefer natural medicine for your pet, and that's fine for more minor problems such as ticks, fleas, and mild rashes.

However, when your dog is vomiting 6-inch worms that is the time to take him to the vet and get medicine.

Think about it: If you were personally vomiting 6-inch worms, would you look on the internet for possible internet cures, or would you make an appointment to see your doctor?
