Dog owners are becoming more aware of the potential long-term effects of chemical drugs given to their dogs, so it comes as no surprise that we often have customers reaching out to us in search of a safe, natural solution for deworming their dogs. 

Formulated with a combination of herbs not liked by parasites, our Herbal Wormer is a natural alternative to traditional chemical-based products commonly found on the market. With properties beneficial to both the immune and digestive systems, our blend of herbs has been our long-standing effective in deworming your dog, while also supporting their immune and digestive systems.

You may be asking yourself, what herbs can possibly be used to combat worms? Wormwood is one of these herbs. Wormwood is an anti-parasitic. It helps oxygenate the blood. Slippery elm is another herb we use. Slippery elm is a mucilage that supports the dogs digestive system to evacuate these parasites out of their system as fast as possible. These herbs, combined with others, make it possible for you to deworm your dog naturally.

Natural Herbal Dewormer For Dogs vs Other Products

Why use a natural dewormer for your dog? Why not use other types of dewormer products? One of the key differences is that our wormer product is natural and healthy for dogs. Remember, whatever you put in a dog, must go throughout their entire digestive system. We would not want to put any dewormer in our dog’s system that could be potential harmful down the road. What our herbal dewormer does is it puts healthy herbs inside the dog’s system; which then creates an environment that the parasites and worms simply don’t like. In that type of an environment, the parasites will evacuate out of your dog’s system on their own. We’re not killing the parasite inside the dog. We are simply creating an environment that is forcing the parasite to leave.

Other dewormers will kill the worm or parasite while it’s still inside the dogs body. These dead parasites, still have to come out of the dog. They do not stay inside the dog. So the dewormer and parasite still have to go through the dog’s digestive system. They have to go though and be filtered by the liver and kidneys. All of the dog’s digestive organs have to deal with that dewormer that was placed in their system to kill the parasite. Our herbal wormer does not have any type of chemicals that could be harmful to a dog’s system. It creates a healthy environment. Parasites and worms can’t thrive in a healthy environment.
