Do you have a new puppy or a kitten? One of the first things most new pet parents worry about is parasites.
Signs of worms in your puppy or kitty can include worms or “rice bodies” in his stool, a scruffy looking appearance, scooting and licking his rear, vomiting, and diarrhea. Luckily, you do not have to fear worms because there are foods, DE and herbs that can help keep intestinal populations in check and encourage their expulsion. Keeping your yard clean and free of rodents and fleas will also help.
There are many less invasive and more natural alternatives to conventional veterinary products that you might want to try.
“Most dog breeders and owners have been taught that the “responsible” way to deal with canine pests and parasites is to routinely de-worm and/or use toxic chemicals on and in them to repel fleas, ticks and mosquitoes. Indeed, one of the most common questions asked by a new puppy buyer is “when was it last wormed and has it been vaccinated?” The media has done a great job of keeping the veterinary industry in business by perpetuating the lies of the need for routine worming and vaccinating our dogs.
Routine de-worming is so ingrained in dog breeders, veterinarians and dog owners that most owners unthinkingly step right onto the relentless treadmill of chemical worming and using some form of toxic flea/tick product and give them a heartworm chew without ever even checking to see whether there is a problem with pests and parasites in the first place – it’s a precaution, just in case! This is the responsible thing to do, right?
To answer this question it’s important to understand where the thinking comes from for routine use of chemical products to keep our companion animals free of pests and parasites, “just in case”.
