Tapeworms 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. 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 at vitamins, minerals, other nutrients 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.

You will also sometimes see tapeworms when your dog’s health is below par.

This homeopathic complex is made from several homeopathic remedies in a low potency that are useful in resolving an infestation of tapeworms in a cat.  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.

There are several different worms to target. The most common in an adult is tapeworm. Puppies can suffer with roundworm (which is vomited up), but rarely an adult. Ringworm is an infestation on contact, so doesn’t affect most dogs. Heartworm can be a problem in some areas of the world.

Just ask for the one that you are targeting.

Suggested dose is to add a couple of drops in the food or water, every day. Stop when you see improvement.
