Natural Deworming for Dogs and Cats

Are you concerned that your dog may have worms? Intestinal worms in both dogs and cats are common.

These kind of infections are caused by some of our pets more questionable behaviour such as eating faeces, swallowing contaminated soil or ingesting fleas while grooming. Young pups can even get them when feeding on their infected mother.

These parasites can cause significant harm to your furry friends. They not only eat the nutrients from the dog’s food but also their body, which can lead to malnutrition and anaemia.

Keep an eye out for some obvious signs of worm infestation:

  • Diarrhoea

  • Vomiting

  • Weight loss

  • Bloated Belly

  • General unhealthy appearance

  • Dry, dull coat

  • A lot of scooting on their rear end

  • Visible signs that could look like grains of rice around their bottom or in their faeces

  • Lethargy

A worm infestation should never be left untreated; intestinal parasites can migrate to other organs which could exacerbate the situation. There are a wide range of different treatment options which you can consult with your vet about, but our favourite one is a more natural one, rabbit ears with fur.

The benefit of giving your dog or cat this tasty and nutritional treat to chew on is at least twofold:

  1. The fur is a source of fibre which aids digestive health

  2. The brushing action from the fur helps brush away worms and their eggs present in your dog’s intestines.

Ideally, you want to help your pets by preventing them getting worms to start off with. Giving your dog or cat furry rabbit ears weekly can help keep these parasites at bay.
