The Best Dog Tapeworm Treatment Home Remedy
Although a commercial product like Bayer tapeworm dewormer is much more efficient at treating tapeworm in your dog, there are a number of home remedies that may be able to help you. These common household products have all shown anti-parasitic properties and may help you with things you already have in your house.
Adding Coconut to your dog’s diet may help with treating tapeworm due to its anti-parasitic properties. The fruit itself, both dried and fresh as well as the oil can all be tried. Add the coconut to your dog’s regular meals and reassess the situation after a week.
One thing that we would like to add about coconut is that is it not toxic to dogs but the medium chain triglycerides contained in it may cause bloating and gas in your dog.
Giving your dog fresh or cooked pumpkin or pumpkin seeds is another quick and easy way that you are able to treat tapeworm at home.
The cucurbitacin contained in pumpkin has a number of anti-parasitic properties that can end a tapeworm infestation in about a week if consumed every day. Just add the pumpkin, or its seeds to your dogs meal as usual and reassess the situation after a week.
The best thin about using pumpkin to treat tapeworm in your dogs is that most dogs love pumpkin anyway. The view below shows how much dogs enjoy pumpkin.
