Garlic keeps some things away

You are getting garlic confused with giving your dog garlic to keep fleas away. Some say this works and others find they still have to go to their vets for "Program" to control fleas. The odor of the garlic, as it leaves the dog's skin, can help repel fleas, but it will not kill them.

Garlic is very good for lots of ailments. It "cleans" your body, and that of animals, of many harmful things and keeps one healthy. Apple cider vinegar is good also. I give my dogs garlic tablets that I bought especially for this purpose...just keeps them healthier all around. Try it on your food as well.

Garlic is not for cats!

Garlic contains sulfoxides and disulfides, which can damage red blood cells and cause anemia. Cats are more susceptible than dogs. Also, some dogs may be sensitive to garlic. It can cause vomiting and diarrhea

Pumpkin Seeds - not just for Halloween

That's one I've never heard before... I can't imagine it's more than an old wives tale. However, there is a natural dewormer that's just as easy. It's crushed white pumpkin seeds. Don't crush them to the point that they're powder, but fairly close. Give a small dog a teaspoon full with their meals, a large dog a tablespoon, and a giant breed two tablespoons. After a few days (4 or 5) any worms should be cleared up.

A Good Dewormer for All Worms

Pumpkin seed are good (for people too) but you usually won't have to crush them. I put them in my dogs food or just in a bowl and they go crazy over them, but that is more for maintenance, I believe.

Aloe leaves (with spines cut off) ground in food processor with Diatomaceous Earth is good for most worm species.

Freshly ground cloves, Wormwood, and cayenne pepper ground small enough to put in capsules and give 2 a day for 3 days then will take care of the worms, repeat in a week for three weeks to make sure all eggs/worms are destroyed. This will take care of all worms.

It is very unappealing to see little squirmy creatures in your pet's stools or bottom. Not only is it not pleasing but also it means your pet is sick. Unfortunately, most puppies and kittens, if not all, will get worms so it is very important to check your puppies and kittens stools often. Some adult dogs can still get worms. The worms you can see usually cause your pet to vomit or have diarrhea. However, there are worms you can't see like hookworms that can cause more severe problems, including heart worms that attack your pet's heart. There are a number of things you can do to rid and prevent worms from taking up residence in your pet.

The first and most important thing to do to rid and even prevent recurring worms is to make sure you get your puppy or kitten all the necessary shots. Getting pets de-wormed when they are young is very important. Puppies and kittens are either born with worms or they get them from their mother while nursing. You should get your pets de-wormed as young as six weeks. The next thing you can do to help get rid of worms is to keep fleas away from your pets. Fleas carry tapeworms. You can purchase a variety of flea sprays and powders at pet stores or from your vet. Again, check with your vet when purchasing a flea product for dogs or cats what is safe for dogs may be dangerous for cats.

Hookworms are smaller than roundworms. They are called hookworms because they feed by hooking onto the wall of the intestine. Hookworms have pretty sharp teeth and cause the dog's intestine to bleed. Since hookworms eat blood, they like this situation, but too many of them can be very bad for the dog. Dogs can get hookworms from the ground where other dogs have passed eggs before, or from the milk of their mother if she was infected.
