Non-Toxic Worm Remedies
for Dogs and Cats

by Gary Le Mon

Non-toxic worm remedies are popular these days because worms are one of the most disgusting things a pet owner can encounter. And because natural, herbal pet remedies are surging in public appeal.

Most owners do not realize their pet has worms until the pet actually passes the worms to the outside. Signs are often present like thin, potbellied, ravenous appetite among others, although not all cases of worms present themselves the same.

Once you find your pet has intestinal worms, you need to rid your pet and home of them quickly. Numerous types of worms can be transferred from pets to humans rather easily, and children are often the victims of accidental worm transference.

There are several steps one should take to rid a pet of worm infestation and prevent future occurrences. Here are some of the steps to take:

1. If your pet has a severe case of worms already, even many holistic vets will recommend a de-wormer available at your vet’s office. While these are chemically based (not non-toxic worm remedies), many feel it is warranted to clear the pet’s intestinal tract quickly and then work to restore your pet’s gastrointestinal tract with friendly bacteria. (Zucker 1999, 216).

2. However, if you would rather steer clear of chemical de-wormers altogether, there are non-toxic worm remedies that are perfectly natural. Some of the most common herbal remedies include neem and/or clove. If the herb is too bitter tasting for your pet, you can wrap the powders into cheese balls or bacon “sandwiches” for easy administration. To avoid formulation errors when creating herbal de-wormers yourself, there are natural products available as well. Whatever method you select should be approved by your veterinarian or a Master Herbalist.

3. In addition to herbal, non-toxic worm remedies, there are other supplements available. Sandy Arora in her book titled Whole Health for Happy Cats suggests ground up pumpkin seeds or pureed carrots added to each meal. This method works to flush out tapeworms. She also suggests different kinds of digestive enzymes like bromelain and papain (Arora 2006, 137).

4. Most holistic veterinarians agree that a truly healthy pet is not a good host for parasites. Another suggestion some have for increasing the vitality of your pet is to add probiotics to its meal. During an interview with Pat Lazarus for her book titled Keep Your Cat Healthy the Natural Way, Dr. Neal K. Weiner touted the importance of probiotics to encourage friendly bacteria in the intestinal tract. “When you get the intestinal flora working properly, the worms just get flushed out—no matter what type of worms they are,” he said (Lazarus 1999, 223).

5. Good housekeeping is also necessary for prevention. Make sure to pick up all waste in the yard immediately. Scoop out litter boxes everyday. After a bout with worms, throw out all used litter and wash the box in hot, soapy water followed up with a bleach solution. Fill with new litter.

These are the most effective tips for ridding your pet of intestinal worms and parasites. An ounce of prevention works wonders, and you’ll be able to keep your dog or cat happy, healthy, and worm free.

I am so thankful I found your website!

"I have a 13 year old mixed Shepherd/Hound with 2 bulging disks, arthritis in his hips and cataracts that are starting to form. He has done a 180 since the first week of being on your products. He is playful and wagging his tail much more often than he has been over the past couple of years. I am so thankful that I found your website and I tell everyone that I know with pets here in NYC about your products. My dog hasn't limped since he started on the FlexaSure Dog Arthritis Cell Cleanse and Joint Hydration Formula and the Primalix Arthridia and Cataractin Formulas. I cannot thank you enough for making these products available. It has eased my best friends pain so he can participate in daily activities and given me more time with him. Thank you so much!"

My only regret is ...

"I am the kind of person who always speaks up when I think I'm not getting my money's worth for anything. I am also not hesitant to give praise where praise is due. With that said I bought some of your DentaSure teeth spray for my cat. I received it at the beginning of this week. After 3 DAYS of using this product her teeth have already gone from a scary looking brown and very unhealthy to a light shade of yellow. I am absolutely blown away by how fast this product has helped her teeth improve and the fact that it's all natural is huge to me (the vet has been pushing me to pay $720 for a cleaning including anesthesia!!). My only regret is not finding you guys sooner!! Keep up the great work!!!!" ~ Fred Brennan, Waymouth, MA

Vet Ophthlamologist confirmed Sonny blind. Thanks to Primalix Cataractin he can now see! Cheryl and Sonny from Wisconsin

"Sonny our 13 year old miniature poodle would brush along objects to find his way. March 2014 a Vet. Ophthalmologist confirmed completely formed cataracts. Risky surgery was not an option. March 28, 2014 Sonny started Cataractin and DailySure. May 2014 Sonny was seeing good enough to walk around on his own. August 2014 Sonny site is really good and he is running around enjoying his freedom and us. We are in AWE and so grateful for you helping others live a better life!"

Delighted it worked so fast
Carol and Max from Illinois

Carol C testimonial "I have to tell you how happy I am to have gotten the Cataractin. I received it in the mail a couple days after ordering it. I was very excited to try this on my girl Max. She is a 14 year old beagle. She is in great shape but has had trouble seeing. Her brown eyes were foggy blue with a whitish blue spot in both eyes. She couldn't see to jump up to sit with me. After just two days of taking Primalix Cataractin her eyes are looking way better.

"I was wanting this to work but am so delighted that it worked so fast. She is not completely better but she is well on her way. The best part is she can see to jump up in my chair now. My only regret is that I wish I would have purchased this 6 months ago when I first saw it on the web.
Thank you so much,"
Ms. Carol Camper and Max
