Fleas are a result of toxins. They are 'canaries in the coal mine', alerting you to problems in the making in your dog. Fleas consume the toxins, so are doing a valuable job.
Toxins come from commercial dog food and from veterinary medications. This compounds over the years, causing major health issues.
Rather than use the highly toxic and neurotoxic veterinary solutions, it's healthier to get to the root cause of the problem.
The best way to control fleas is to feed your dog a healthy, quality raw meat and bones diet and to use holistic health care, such as homeopathy.
However, in the early stages of the dietary conversion, fleas may be abundant as the dog de-toxes - at last! Diatomacious earth (food grade NOT garden grade) VERY lightly rubbed into the fur can kill fleas. Just be careful to use it sparingly so the dog doesn't inhale it. It is safe and effective.
This homeopathic complex is made from several homeopathic remedies in a low potency that are useful in resolving an infestation of fleas in a dog. The vial size is 15ml. It comes with a dropper for ease of use. There is enough that will probably last the life of your dog, as long as you are feeding them appropriately.
The dose is two drops on food or in the water, daily until the issue is resolved. Then stop.
Worms are a normal part of a healthy being's digestive tract. We all have them. Without them, none of us would be here. But they do need to be in the right numbers.
The main reason these worms can explode in their population and create mischief is from the diet. Dogs are at the carnivore end of omnivores and thrive on a diet of quality raw meat and bones. This digests very fast in a healthy dog, never allowing the worm population to get out of hand.
Tapeworms are visible in the fresh stool as small white, moving objects about the size of a grain of rice. They turn yellow when they die.
Roundworm is either vomited up or passed in the stool. It looks not unlike spaghetti - thin and long!
So stool inspection is always a good idea!
Commercial dog food is cooked, is full of plant food (which is not suitable for dogs) and contains hazardous chemicals mascarading as vitamins, minerals, etc, as well as colours, flavours, preservatives. It digests very slowly, allowing the worms to proliferate out of natural balance.
In the early days of a dietary conversion, a dog may expel these excess worms. That's normal and natural. And generally just needs monitoring.
You will also sometimes see worms when your dog's health is below par.

Heartworm is transmitted by mosquitos. It can occur where there are a lot of dogs in the area..
As with the fleas and worms, the problem is less with the parasite and more to do with the health of your dog's immune system.
A healthy immune system will always be able to repel parasites.
The veterinary heartworm treatment is highly toxic and can make dogs very ill.
A homeopathic heartworm remedy is available.
