Deworming your pet without meds
« on: July 04, 2013, 02:09:26 AM »
We use a mixture of garlic and mustard seed(all smashed up together) then rolled up in a small bread ball, and then roll the ball in mollasses(to disguise the smell) You can either put it in their food or directly in the mouth. I use this on the horses,non milking cows,goats and dogs.

Thank you Nobshere. A simple solution to a common problem that can do easily yourself even if the SHTF.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Here is a site that had open my eyes on a few thing about garlic and your dog. I had been under the belief that Garlic was poison to a dog, your choice on what to believe. :o

Thanks for the link Ranger. Good article explains both sides of the garlic debate. There are some other helpful articles for dog owners there too, I signed up for their newsletter.

I like the site. Here's another controversial item, clover. Supposedly causes liver damage in livestock. I know that it can cause compaction in horses, as well as sores around their mouths. Just throwing it out there.

Diotamacious Earth (hope I spelled it right) seems to be working well to control worms with our pups (Wife's method)

Was @ UFA yesterday, they have 50lb bags of dictomaceous earth for $34!

Also, I have been looking for copper powder. Supposedly if you give your goats 1lb of powder each spread out over a year they will never get worms. worth a try I figure.
One definitely would have to be careful about it.. don't want to cause liver toxicity. here is the link, very informative article.

http://www.dairygoatjournal.com/87-2/natural_goat_medicine/

shoppers drug mart can order in some, 500g for $8 , UFA 400g for $10, also ordered in. Local vet clinic said id kill my goats and to wait till they got sick and then give them dewormer, so needless to say they were very helpful lol...

the downside to using copper is its not sustainable... once I run out I wont be able to make anymore...I guess the upside is this leaves more herbs/honey/yogurt for us humans when we need it.


anyone have any experiences with copper sulfate powder for deworming? any horror stories?  ;)
suggestions?

DE is your better option.. Or just use trace mineral salt blocks, a sulfur salt block will help them with insects and have a limited effct on the worms. I hope youre not using vaccines. After I stopped my sheep herd went to almost 0 deaths among the older ewes and lambs. Penicillin is OK if used when all else fails as well as selenium boosters once every 2 years.

For the rest of us not in Alberta, can you tell us where or what UFA is please?
Is it like the TSA - USA or TSE - parts of Ontario, The Tractor Supply Store? Thanks

Hi,

Sorry about that.

UFA stands for United Farmers of Alberta, its a farm supply store and they also have fueling stations around alberta  :)

I have never been in a TSA store....but I imagine it is somewhat similar

Just an update on using Diatemaceous Earth on our wormy puppies....it is a 3 week dosage, Google for approximate dosage for different weights, ours only needed 11/2 tbsp per pup. Took approximately 9 days to start seeing a difference. They were badly infested. Now, 3 weeks later, pups are worm free and have healthier looking skin & coats. They will continue to get DE as a regular part of their diets since I am seeing the benefits for myself.

Thank you (*and Hi!  :)*) Nobswife,

I sprinkled some into my cats dishbowl...as a preventative measure.

Seems like DE is a great find!

Nice, I had known of this and am glad to read that it works.  I might start with it for my cats/kittens.  In the past, when I had four cats that all had worms, I put them on a completely raw diet, with organic ground food that included bones and organs for full nutrition.  They were worm-free within a month tops and were totally healthy eating that way.  Unfortunately, had to move away from it as I couldn't afford it anymore, but a natural diet does the job as well.  Now I have more cats because I have taken in rescues and wouldn't be able to afford to feed them strictly raw food so the DE is a great option.  Thanks!
