Yep...I said it...there it is. Don't be surprised if you take your puppy or dog to the vet and the vet comes back stating the dog has worms...
ALL, yes all puppies are born with worms, bestowed upon them by their mother. Worms are a part of life....how we deal with them can either suppress or boost the immune system.
The immune system is your dog's best defense against worms. The dog's immune system will keep them in check, but if a dog has a weakened immune system, the worms can proliferate and make the dog very sick.
Wormer's from the vet are going to be some type of pesticide that will kill the worms in the dog. That's great! but the downside is, it weakens the dog's immune system and destroys his intestinal flora which can make him vulnerable to more disease.
Watch a healthy immune system attack a worm.
Parasitic Drug resistance: Parasites fight to survive and can figure out how to prevent the drug from working. Parasites and pathogens rapidly acquire resistance to modern chemical drugs and the risk of this increases the more the drug is used. For example, they may turn the drug into an inactive form or keep it from binding to its target in the pathogen. Many drugs, including heartworm preventatives, are being made stronger and stronger because of this adaptation. These drugs are now causing serious problems, injuring and even killing pets today.
So, what do you do? What do you do when you are taking more risk giving your pet the monthly preventatives than if you didn't give the preventative?
Well, you can do what I have done over my 10 years of breeding. I give my dogs a formulation of different herbs that are known throughout history to kill and prevent worm infestation in people and animals alike. These herbs, along with the immune boosting raw diet has kept my dogs heartworm free, despite living in a swamp..(yes, The Green Swamp) in North Carolina.
I decided I would create my own internal parasite preventative and this is the result. 10 years in the testing grounds of real-life with over 20 dogs+. Not one with heartworm. I have named the formula "Para-Cleanse"
Para-Cleanse is a 100% herbal remedy
formulated for the healthy and effective expulsion of internal parasites such as roundworm, hookworm, tapeworm and heartworm. Para-Cleanse contains herbs known for their anti-parasitic, anti-septic, anti-biotic and healing properties. Para-Cleanse can help to rid your pet of unhealthy internal parasites and cleanse the blood, promoting digestive health and a strong immune system.
Para-Cleanse is an excellent companion to the Raw Diet, as it boosts resistance against diseases caused by parasites and improves immune system functioning. Each of the herbs I have chosen to use in my formula target specific parasites as well as have health-boosting properties.
Unlike modern chemical/pesticidal medicine, herbs have been used for centuries with the same effectiveness. They still work today and will continue to work into the future.
You can have confidence knowing that you are making the right choice for your pet.
(P.S. – I use these not only for my kennel, but on myself as well…yep.)

*Do not give to pregnant or breeding females. Be sure to de-worm before you plan on breeding your dog.
When dosing your dog with herbal wormers, it can be more effective to give them ten days on, five days off, and then ten days on. It takes ten days to kill the worms. When worms die off, however, they will lay eggs to propagate the next generation. It takes about five days for the eggs to hatch so the treatment needs to be repeated to kill the new offspring.
