A woman that works in rescue recommended purchase Pumpkin Seed Oil to kills worms in your pet. It takes awhile but, it works. My cat, Petie, was a stray and very thin. It took almost a full bottle (4 oz.) of the oil and two months. Dosage for him was 1/2 teaspoon once a day or, 1/4 teaspoon twice a day in wet yummy food. Don't mix it in the food as the cat may not like it and then won't eat the food. Use a dropper and drop droplets here and there on the food. I was busy during this time and mostly only gave Petie the morning dose so it took over two months, but I am telling you, he is worm free. You'd be wise to buy two bottles if you have more than one cat/dog.
In your research you are probably coming across tobacco. In fact, I tried tobacco first after reading the posts here on EC about worms and tobacco.
Here is my opinion about tobacco. Please don't use tobacco, especially standard tobacco because it contains pesticides and herbicides. I did (I used organic tobacco "American Spirit") and my cat turned into a mad cat for days and was attacking the other pets. I felt really bad for doing that to him.
Also, the tobacco will kill a bunch of worms at first and you'll think you got them all but, for whatever reason, the worms keep coming back. I even increased the amount of tobacco. Desperate, I went searching on the net as you are and a lady that runs a rescue told me about pumpkin seed oil. It is not over night but it is safe for your pet and I haven't seen a worm on Petie in months. (One bottle was just enough for Petie, but he was very thin. You might need two bottles if you have a heavier pet.) Make sure you order a 4 oz. dropper to go with the 4 oz. bottle. I ordered mine from Mountain Rose Herbs. They also have other natural items for pets.
Has anyone tried pumpkin seeds because they work to get rid of parasites in Humans.. but could pumpkin seeds be in any way harmful to dogs?

I completely rid six cats of giardia with a paste made of ground pumpkin seeds and aged garlic extract. Grind pumpkin seeds in a coffee grinder or processor then take about 1/4 tsp and add a couple of drops to the garlic extra. The extract is aged garlic and will not cause the same problems fresh garlic will. It's perfectly safe. I've never had any issues with any of my cats and I've used it fairly often for medicinal purposes.
My dogs have whip worms it is the same symptoms as parvo. There is no cure for whip worms but they are not caused by fleas, its by eating, smelling other dog poop that has been infected with them. They cannot be seen by the naked eye only by microscope. The vet told me to clean dog poop everyday and spray my yard with bleach to help keep them from getting infected that is they are in a fenced yard.
EC: Actually, you can get rid of whipworms with the correct medication.
"Whipworm infestation is detectable by stool examination, which can detect eggs and charcot-leyden crystals. Mebendazole is 90% effective in the first dose, and albendazole may also be offered as an anti-parasitic agent." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whipworm

Do you know any products that get rid of tapeworms in cats?
I tried the epsom salts, with 1 pint of h202 for the bath. The epsom salts had spearamint in them. It was the first time in 3 days my dog has been able to lay on her side, and sleep, without so much respiratory distress. The bath was hard, I feel buzzed from the oxygen on my arms, I can't believe what's it's done for my dog this evening. She hadn't eaten all day, and then ate, just now. We've been doing the castor packs for some time. I just tried the ACV tonite. I am also going to try POKE and American Mandrake Root tinctures, 1 drop each. She's also on Cat's Claw, Una da gato, only, and also Gravizon, and ning xa and essiac herbal remedy. Keep your thumbs up, if my dog wants to live, then I'm going to find a way to make it happen for her. She's only 8.
I used the tobacco method for six weeks. Tobacco killed the worms initially but, the worms kept coming back. Please do not use this method as it will turn your pet into a mad dog/cat. Also, standard tobacco is highly sprayed with poison. I used organic tobacco, "American Spirit" the yellow box which is a mild tobacco like a Marlboro. (Yes, I used to smoke it too but I have since quit.) Pumpkin Seed oil worked for my cat. Please see my detailed review for pumpkin seed oil that includes how much I used and where to buy it. Please do not be tempted to use tobacco on your pet.
One week ago, I saw worms in my dog's stool and found this site. I immediately got a few cigarrettes and gave him a little more than half with his food. He's a Cocker Spaniel weighing about 35 lbs.. The next day I saw worms but they seemed like they were dead. After that I saw no more.
Yesterday, I took him to th vet with a stool sample from a bowel movement he made very early yesterday morning. I saw nothing and the vet's office said the sample was totally clear.
My husband told the vet that I used tobacco, and of course he said he never, ever heard of this, and he said that there could be eggs remaining up in the intestinal tract.
Sure enough, this morning, I saw live worms again.
I'm feeling confident about the tobacco, though. My instinct was to follow the first dose with a second dose to kill anything that might have remained to be hatched. I don't want to overdose him on tobacco, but he showed no adverse effects at all to what I gave him before. I even gave it to my cats just in case they were infected, too.
In addition, my dog has never had worms in 13 years. My husband suspected that he may have gotten them from being at a friends home just a few weeks prior. This house has four dogs and a cat. When he is with them, he is outside much longer as they stay in their yard more. We don't leave our dog out very long. With our friend, all our dogs are exposed for a much longer time to each other's fecal matter that remains in the backyard and the other outdoor variables that contribute to parasites.
It's very, very possible that the tobacco did the job the first time, and that he was reinfected when we took him over there again just this past weekend.
I will add an update in a week or so, but I believe the tobacco is effective!

Yes I give to my dogs Gum Spirits (pine turp--not same as paint turpentine!)
Okay I am really into JENNIFER DANIELS MD . Her books are amazing. Her website has a free guide on taking turpentine for people. Its for "candida" but candida is fungus and what thrives on fungus???? Parasites. Thus why its great for those with parasites.
And if you have dogs/pets and garden, you have parasites. Jennifer Daniels says this whole parasites hysteria is overblown. That you just need to keep them under control and she has taken turpentine since 1994. She takes 1/2 tsp 2x a week.
So when I decided to try it for my dogs I wondered how to get it down quickly yet with sugar. So I wrapped up the dose of sugar and gum spirts in Black Forest ham. Which went down very quick with the dogs. I used a 1/2 tsp of sugar on a piece of Black Forest ham with 2 drops of turpentine on the sugar and gave to a 70lb Golden Retriever. Did the same for my Toto sized terrier of 40lbs. I gave her one drop. All went well, and so we up the dose every week one more drop . I plan to give the larger dog 1/4 tsp total after she has proven safely she can handle it. The other dog 3-4 drops.
Today my husband said the Golden had small worms so its working. I also give the dogs Dr. Goodpet vitamin C for dogs about 3x a week. Help their teeth and gums and their body. I also give them super silica (YouTube it) in their water.
I used the Dr. Goodpet.com Vitamin C PLUS I LOVE THEIR Flea Tincture which keeps the dogs mellow and less itchy with fleas. I give NO flea meds anymore. This tincture is incredible. I used it all last Summer. That along with lots of vacuuming -totally worked. I also give the dogs Ivermectin 1x a month 6 months out of the year. And I give them Goat Dewormer 2-3x a year.
I read the whole thing and started out with two drops of turpentine after starting Cell Cores Bowel mover. Then when I was getting used to it and found it to work, I started my dogs on it. They are getting older and need extra help.
Do you know how to get rid of whipworms?

thanks for any information you can provide.
