    I watch a program on TV called The Monsters Inside Us - it comes on down here every Thursday - it goes through true stories of people who end up with parasites - it scares the heck out of you when you see the problems people have from getting some kind of parasite - some people actually die - there was a story about this girl who was going blind in her one eye - finally a eye doctor checked and found a worm in the back of her eye - it showed the doctor operating on her eye and getting a hold of the worm - he slowly started pulling out the worm very carefully so it wouldn't break off - he kept pressure on the worm and it gradually slowly came out - 8 inches long - it was a heart worm that the girl got from a dog - I think that if you have a pet around the house it is a good bet to have a stool sample checked by a vet at least once a year - and if a dog to get some heart worm medicine
    I watched the same show , interesting and scary "what you can get and from where ".

    I can recommend you this way to get rid of worms. A veterinarian friend told me about a dog dewormer called fenbendazole. It’s branded as Fenben LAB and can be ordered online.

    I have also used pumpkin seeds, ground into a fine powder.

    My GSP had some intestinal worms a few months ago, and they were eliminated.

    "Pumpkin seeds contain the amino acid cucurbitin, which works to paralyze and eliminate parasites from your dog’s digestive tract. Feed the seeds whole, or grind and add to food. Give your dog one-quarter teaspoon per ten pounds of body weight once or twice daily until the worms are gone. Using pumpkin seeds instead of veterinary dewormer will allow you to avoid dosing concerns and side effects such as diarrhea, vomiting or allergic reaction. Pumpkin seeds are a safe dewormer and also provide quality protein, amino acids and many nutrients."
    "Camo" is perfectly acceptable as a favorite colour.
