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!

Do you know how to get rid of whipworms?
my dog has whipworms. I am going to try blackwalnut with clove and wormwood. I am also going to give him a clove of garlic 3 times a day. Can anyone give me dosing for my dog. he is 120 pounds.
on an off note I had 3 dogs that got kennel cough all at once. Garlic 3 times a day and it was gone within a week. just wanted to share that garlic does cure kennel cough.
thanks for any information you can provide.
