Our pets are frequently the targets of many parasites, including parasitic worms, fleas, ticks, and various microscopic creatures. Fortunately, a variety of natural pet remedies can be safe and effective for treatment of parasites, if used properly.
Intestinal worms such as hookworms and tapeworms are particularly common, embedding themselves in your pet's intestinal walls and feeding off the blood supply found there. They can eventually cause intestinal blockages and ruptures. Any changes in eating or digestive health (including bloody stool) might be indicative of such parasitic worms.
Natural Pet Remedies: Tinctures of black walnut hull and doses of wormwood are frequently used against parasites in pets and readily available. Adding a tiny amount of ground cloves to your pet's diet may help to ward off parasites. Some pet owners report success in using chewing tobacco as a natural agent to kill parasites quickly.
