Hello everyone,

Know this have been repeat million times in the forum.

Holistic prevention for Flea, Tick and Lungworm; tapeworm & roundworm

I aware of that for Flea + Tick are recommended to use following essential oil:
Rose Geranium
Tea Tree
Peppermint
Lemongrass
Lavender
Cedarwood

But how about lungworm?

Also those internal worms what should be use apart from Garlic powder for tapeworm? Or that isn't any as effective as wormer tablet?

Thank you for your time =)

You can feed diatomaceous earth. There is a scale of how much to feed per lb of your dog. It acts as a natural wormer. But I am pretty sure only those intestinal worms. I'm on my phone so I can't really add much more info.

Yep, DE is for intestinal worms or adult worms that are already in the GI tract. I don't believe it works for heartworm, though, so you should still be giving a heartworm pill each month.

He he, geology nerd time. Diatomaceous earth is a type of soft sedimentary "rock". It's actually made of diatoms, these little creatures that create silica shells. You could say that when you are ingesting this you are ingesting quartz crystals... it is pretty much the same thing, except it is amorphous, meaning it has water added to the molecular structure.

Thank you for all reply so far, so far my understanding is diatomaceous earth is for internal and external use for tapeworms, whipworm, hock worms; and external use for flea and tick.
Consume the designed dosage everyday over 30 days periods when takes internal, and would take 7 days to kick in it. But how long to repeat a cycle?


How about lungworm, and roundworms? What to use with that?

DE should work on roundworms. They're pretty common but after around a year of age or so dogs' bodies don't allow worms to mature to adulthood so the eggs just lie dormant in the dog's body and are sometimes eliminated in the dog's poop. That's how they're transmitted to young puppies oftentimes, when a puppy sniffs or ingests infested feces. Or, when a bitch becomes pregnant, the worm eggs are activated and can be transmitted to the pups. This is how newborn pups often end up with roundworms. Usually you give a puppy that young a dewormer such as Strongid.

Anyway, DE should work on adult worms in the dog's system. For the eggs lying dormant in the dog's body there is no way to get rid of them other than the dog naturally eliminating them.

This was cool to know, does anyone know why it gets rid of worms?

Basically the microscopic dead organisms are so tiny and sharp that they literally cut the worms (or fleas and ticks if applied externally) to pieces. They will cut anything with an exoskeleton or anything with a soft body like worms if ingested. Humans can even eat DE and use it around the home to treat for all kinds of pests with an exoskeleton.

The other cool thing is the organisms are also tiny enough that if you were to rub it on your fingers or if it went through your own GI tract it wouldn't cause you any harm.

Anyone can kindly tell me how to use DE, as in term of how many days? or is this treat like daily intakes?
