It’s an unfortunate fact that dogs get worms. There’s no stopping your dog from going outdoors in the park, backyard and for walks around the neighborhood, so it’s easy for him to pick up parasites from the soil.
Fortunately, there are many simple home remedies to treat your dog for worms if you prefer to eliminate additives, chemicals and artificial components from his diet.
Some of the remedies listed below are herbal, and others are homeopathic, so you can try as many as you like until you find one that works best for your dog.
The challenge with wormwood is that it also contains volatile oils along with tannins that might be harmful for your dog if you don’t use with care.
Overusing the herb can damage your dog’s nervous system, so use wormwood only if there’s an immediate need to eliminate parasites.
Finding the right balance is crucial: Add a quarter teaspoon of dried wormwood to the dog’s food. Do not use the treatment for more than three consecutive days.
