If you are a dog owner, then you are probably concerned about your dog getting worms. Because worms such as heart worms can be deadly, making sure your dog doesn’t get worms is critical. Unfortunately, many of the chemical remedies provided by your veterinarian are also not good for your dog–in fact, they’re poisons. Here is how to make one type of homemade dog wormer.
Livestock owners know that a lot of thought and work goes into keeping animals healthy. One of the best actions to take is regular de-worming. Your veterinarian can prescribe chemical wormers for your goats, or you can take a more natural approach. Purchase an herbal preparation at the local co-op, or supplement your herd’s diet with a mixture of your own design. Depending on the type of parasites your goats tend to contract, there are several herbal remedies to choose from. Add a few herbs together to make a good overall de-wormer you can use on a regular basis.
Both chickens kept for egg production and broilers can develop intestinal parasites, known as worms. While worms do not necessary signal death for the flock of chickens, they can negatively affect both quality of life and egg production. Typically, chickens acquire parasitic worms through contaminated living areas, but they can also become infected through their food supply, particularly if they are free-rangers and eat earthworms, snails or other backyard creatures. Parasitic worms live in your chicken’s intestinal tract where they can interfere with food absorption. Ridding your chickens of worms can be accomplished by conventional chemical means such as commercial dewormers, but some chicken owners wish to use a more natural approach.
