What is a home remedy for a dog with worms?

Answer

The primary options for removing worms in dogs is with a vet-prescribed de-wormer or one of the natural de-worming medicines on the market. Cloves are a common ingredient in natural remedies, but other ingredients are unlikely to be found in the average kitchen. The best home remedy for worms in dogs is preventing them from infesting dogs in the first place.

Preventing worms in dogs is easier than trying to get rid of them. Dogs generally end up with worms in one of two ways. The first is through consumption of something containing worms or worm eggs, and the second is being bitten by a carrier, such as fleas or mosquitoes. Dogs tend to consume the feces of other animals and pick up worms or their eggs that way. Another way for dogs to get worms through consumption is drinking water from lakes or ponds, which are often prime breeding grounds for these parasites.

Symptoms of worm infestations vary with the type of worm and the dog. General digestive symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea are common as is lethargy and weight loss. Sometimes the only sign of a worm infestation is shed segments of the parasite in the dog's stool.
