Natural Dewormer For Dogs

Mar 21, 2022

There are options when looking for a natural dewormer for dogs.

The best natural dewormer for dogs is a balanced healthy diet. A good diet for dogs will help build a strong immune system. Your dog’s IgE antibodies can destroy parasitic worms on their own, so it is important to support your dog’s immune system with healthy foods that include good amounts of zinc, vitamin D, and other immune-boosting nutrients.

In addition to a good diet, you can deworm your dog with natural foods and herbs that help eliminate all types of intestinal worms in your dog. Prevention, regular testing, flea control, and good hygiene make the best course of action to prevent serious consequences to your dog caused by worms.

In all cases where your dog’s diet is concerned, talk to your vet and make sure your natural remedies to eliminate worms in dogs are made according to your dog’s weight, age and allergen tolerance, take extra caution with pregnant dogs and puppies.

Here are the top 3 natural foods that act as a natural dewormer for dogs:

  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
  • Diatomaceous Earth (DE)

Pumpkin Seeds:
Raw, organic pumpkin seeds are loaded with all important nutrients to your pet’s overall good health. Pumpkin contains the amino acid, cucurbitacin, which paralyzes and eliminates worms & parasites from the digestive tract.
You can feed your dog the seeds whole, or grind them up and add to your dog’s food. Using pumpkin seeds instead of prescription veterinary dewormer will help with concerns and side effects such as diarrhea, vomiting, or allergic reaction. Pumpkin seeds are a safe dog dewormer and also provide quality protein, amino acids, and nutrients.

Apple Cider Vinegar:
ACV increases alkaline levels in your dog’s intestinal tract making it inhospitable for worms and parasites.
Additionally, apple cider vinegar reduces itchy skin, detoxes the kidneys, reduces urinary tract infections, and helps reduce GI symptoms like gassiness and bloating.

Gut health is extremely important to your dog’s overall health. Nearly 90% of your dog’s immune system is in the gut. Probiotics are good bacteria that support your dog’s gut health, and prebiotics feed those good bacteria to help them work better.
The fermentation process used for raw apple cider vinegar makes it a useful prebiotic. ACV’s prebiotic properties support the good bacteria in the gut, helping with digestion and keeping your dog’s gut nice and healthy.

Diatomaceous Earth:
Food grade DE is effective against insects & parasites. It is deadly to any insects because microscopically sharp edges contact the insect or parasite, and pierce their protective coating, causing dehydration until elimination, while remaining completely harmless to animals.
Diatomaceous Earth is an efficient detox solution while acting as a digestive aid and colon cleanser too. DE can absorb harmful substances like methyl mercury, organophosphate pesticide residues, viruses, endotoxins, proteinaceous toxins from intestinal infections like E-coli, and harmful drug residues.

Other beneficial foods include:

  • Black Cumin Seed
  • Bone Broth
  • Chamomile
  • Cloves
  • Fermented Vegetables
  • Garlic
  • Grated Fruits And Vegetables & Vegetable Juice
  • Olive Leaf
  • Papaya Seeds
