There are Natural remedies for worms in dogs that are specially formulated and can safely and effectively prevent and extinguish roundworms, tapeworms, heartworms and other parasites from your dog.
A cheap, readily available herb that works well is fresh, raw garlic. Try integrating some into your dog's food each day. Garlic also offers protection against fleas. It offers many health benefits such as antiseptic properties and is beneficial for circulatory health. It may give your dog smelly breath though.
Another herb that acts as a vermifuge is elecampane root. The dried root can be boiled and added to your dog's diet. Alternatively, you may boil the root for 20 minutes and add the liquid to the dog's food. Elecampane is a very safe and nutritious herb. Unlike garlic, it does not have a strong odor. Elecampane roots benefit the respiratory system also.
If you don't like the smell of garlic, or your dog does not endure it well, and boiling elecampane root sounds like hard work, you may elect to use a natural commercial product. Pet Alive makes a plant-based herbal remedy called Parasite Dr.
