    NATURAL DIET AND NATURAL MEDICINE FOR PETS
    by: Sharon Kopinak, DVM

    WORMS For tape worms in cats, use ground pumpkin seeds. Put a teaspoon of ground pumpkin seeds in his food every day. Actually cats like pumpkin seeds. If he's got a real pot belly, he may be full of round worms or he may have been eating garbage. If you're perfectly sure of the kind of worm, you can use the natural de-wormers like the wormwood and black walnut combinations. You just use a pinch of wormwood for a cat. It's such a small amount and it's very convenient. You would have to give it for about a month - it's going to take time. You can also use the chemical pyrantel, which is very safe. By the way, the natural de-worming combination is deadly for horses.

    might work for dogs as well. Call your vet to make sure that either of these rememdies is safe for dogs.

      Those poor babies!

      Call your vet. Maybe he'll want you to bring in stool samples by dropping them by the office. Let him know you cannot afford a vet bill and see what he suggests. Most vets are excellent at helping in harder times.

      I have not had a pet who has had worms. Are your dogs tummies real large and extended? Are their appetites enormous?

      Sorry to hear that. Hope you get help and soon.

        yep, then suddenly that visit to the vet costs around 80 bucks just for taking the time to look at the dog not to mention other stupid fee's they put on your bill

        seriously your better off going to petsmart and asking an employee about that, my sister bought one of those medicines for the worms when they belly get big at petsmart and it worked.

          I didn't suggest he takes the dogs to the vet. I suggested the vet might want him to drop the stool samples off to confirm the type of worm.

          Not only that, but I'd make sure you don't have to treat the yard or their bedding, etc. as well. I'd want to make sure I wasn't in this situation again any time soon.

                          I understand....I had to have my dog put to sleep on the 11th..
                          she was over 15 years old and we got her when she was 8 weeks old.
                          It broke my heart and I didnt want to let her go but it was her time.

                          Hope your doggies get better real soon and I know about them

                              KCL, I'm sorry to hear about your dog. It's such a hard thing to do.

                              Broncosinindy, hope your pups feel/get better and you find an inexpensive way to help them.

                              The largest vet bill I've ever had was $800+. Cat ate thread that got tangled throughout her intestines. My choices were to have her put down or surgery. I chose surgery and cried all the way home. People made fun of me (it's just a cat) but, 18 years later, she's still here.
