With spring just around the corner now is a great time to worm your dog. Rather than relying on chemical wormers why not try something natural? Did you know that Pumpkin Seeds can be used safely and effectively to deworm pets and eliminate parasites?
Pumpkin Seeds, also known as pepitas, have been used for centuries by the Native American Indians and greatly valued for their medicinal properties. The pumpkin seed is uniquely alkaline-forming creating an environment conducive to optimum health.
Pumpkin seeds contain Cucurbitin, an Amino Acid, which paralyzes and eliminates worms from the digestive tract. In fact, they are also a great source of nutrients and are loaded with protein, amino acids, fibre, iron, copper, phosphorus, magnesium, calcium, zinc, potassium, folic acid and niacin. All of which are very beneficial to the overall health and well being of your dog.
Simply add 1 teaspoon of ground fresh pumpkin seeds (per 4.5 kilos of body weight to your dog's main meal) for 1 week (once a month). This is a great way to ensure your dog is worm free.
Make sure to use fresh organic seeds, stay away from processed or salted.
