Worms are very common with pets, thankfully they can be treated -- easily and gentle -- with home remedies for worms in dogs. There are many chemical dewormers on the market, some of the newer chemical prescription de-wormers maybe quite safe, and most dogs will experience little or no negative side effects from a dose. But dogs are frequently re-infected within days of being de-wormed and it is one thing to give a chemical worm treatment for dogs once in a while or every two or three weeks.
While the mere idea of intestinal worms in dogs is quite repugnant to many of us, they are a common experience for our pets, and most puppies and kittens come into the world with a mild infestation of worms. Many adult pets may carry a small number of parasites without ever showing symptoms or having their health much compromised for their presence. Some intestinal parasites, however, can cause serious health issues if the animal is particularly weak or immune-compromised, or if the infestation becomes severe.
There are many signs of worms, for example: increased or ravenous appetite, lethargy, vomiting and diarrhoea, bloated stomach, bloody stool or excessive coughing and a poor coat. Worms are a dangerous condition, if left untreated they soak up all of the vital nutrients a dog needs to for life. However, as the signs of a worm infestation are similar to many other illnesses, some equally lethal, you better know what you’re dealing with before attempting to treat it. If you suspect that your companion may have worms, it is best to have a stool sample evaluated by your vet’s office to determine the type and severity of your pet’s parasite infestation.
