What can I use at home to get rid of my dog's worms? I have spent lots of money on different dewormers from the store and still he has worms. I would like to try something from home. Please help.

Go to a feedstore and get a bag of diatomaceous earth. Call first and find out if it's sold in small sizes. It cost me $2 for a 1 pound bag.

It can be mixed in the animal's food or applied to its coat. It works and it's cheap:

In case a bug decides to take up residence in their fur. You can protect them and yourself with Fossil Shell Flour (diatomaceous earth). When lightly rubbed into their coats it is very effective against fleas, ticks, lice, and other pests on pet dogs, cats, and their premises. You can puff it into the soft furniture in your house, the rug and all over the basement too.
Diatomaceous Earth Kills Pests Naturally - It is a mineral dust mined from quarries that kills the insects when they come in contact with it and it does vaporize or go away over time.


Once it's in place it works every time and it's nontoxic..

It can also be used as an organic wormer and will kill any worms or parasites the pets may have.

* Cows/Horses get 1-2 oz per day
* Sheep/Goats/Hogs get 1/2 oz per day
* Cats get 1/2 teaspoon per day
* Large Cats - 1 teaspoon
* Kittens - 1/4 teaspoon
* Dog 100 lbs + - 2 tablespoon
* 50 - 100lbs - 1 tablespoon
* Under 50 lbs - 1 teaspoons
* Mini dogs - 1/2 teaspoon ..." -

Is there a home remedy for worms in dogs?

Food grade diatomacious earth. Food grade ONLY. D E is sold for garden and other but it has poisons in it. D E is actually good for ailments. Inexpensive, natural, non-toxic and can be spread into carpet if you choose.


Google for lots of info. I give it to my animals all the time. It is for intestinal worms not heart worm. Suspect heart worm? Vet immediately. I used it for me as I heard 75% of or population has worms. I had no symptoms but after about 2 weeks I passed a rope of round worms.

How can I deworm a puppy without paying an expensive vet? Isn't there a place I can purchase the deworming solution? I am fostering a stray and already have two dogs that can get contaminated by the foster. I do not want this to happen, but cannot afford the vet bill right now. What do I do?

We have 8 dogs, most of them working dogs, and I do most of the medicating myself.
It depends on the type of worms they have. I use Pyrantel liquid wormer. It is available at Walmart in a small size, and at most feed stores in a larger bottle. Just follow the label directions. It doesn't work on all worms, so be sure that you are treating the correct kind.
Best of luck to you!
