Parasites & toxins: Cathy's tips!

Are you worried about exposing your pet to the dangerous chemicals in the dewormers and tick and flea remedies on the market? How do animals in the wild cope? What do they do to get rid of internal and external parasites? The SURPRISING ANSWERS are here! Read what Pet Consultant Cathy Samuel has to say….

Deworming and de-flea programs' chemical dangers: Cathy's Tips!

1. Firstly, how often should a domestic dog or cat be de-wormed and de-fleaed?  
Cathy says: "Make no mistake that worms, ticks and fleas are very dangerous for your animal. Fleas if left untreated can lead to an animal becoming severely anaemic and dangerously sick. Ticks can carry disease like Biliary and worms can leave your animal poorly malnourished and unwell. For that reason I do recommend the use of a proper flea eradication program for fleas and ticks. If you are in an area where your dog gets ticks, make sure you follow the instructions to the letter so that your dog has continuous protection. Biliary can quickly become fatal. Your pets should be dewormed every 3 - 6 months."

2. What do animals in the wild do?  
Cathy says: "Animals in the wild will often instinctively eat many herbs, bark, flowers or leaves that have natural properties to repel parasites and these herbs then get released through the skin and pores to deter parasites (almost the way garlic seeps out of our pores if we eat too much of it). For de-worming pets, there are natural alternatives and I choose the natural remedy Worm Dr Pets for Holly and Silky and as the name suggests, it's marvellous for helping to eliminate parasites from the digestive tract of animals."

3. How are conventional flea and de-worming programs harmful to animals?  
Cathy says: "The problem with conventional programs for fleas and parasites is that chemicals are needed to kill the fleas and worms. Unfortunately in some of the preparations, a percentage of the chemicals used also gets absorbed through the skin into your pet and can upset the delicate balance in the body - so although I strongly recommend a flea and de-worming program to kill the parasites properly, I always try to pick a Flea & Tick eradication product which does not cross the blood barrier. I also suggest that every pet owner give their pet Immunity and Liver Support (to cleanse the Liver after exposure to chemicals) and will help to cleanse the system and flush out any remaining toxins or remnants of the medications."

4. What other complications can arise?
Cathy says: "If a pet develops an allergy to flea saliva, a terrible itchiness and allergic reaction usually results, leaving your poor animal scratching till he is raw. Silky often has just one flea that sparks this reaction and then scratches till the skin bleeds and her coat falls out! For this I grab the homeopathic remedy, Allergy Itch Ease immediately and give her a few doses to stop the itching. Using AllergiClear Pets regularly will reduce the effects of the allergic reaction too. Conventional treatment for allergies, such as cortisone can put an enormous strain on an animal's adrenal glands, so I would strongly suggest nipping fleas in the bud by using a conventional program and then supplementing with natural remedies as mentioned above."

5. What else can be done?

Cathy says: "Clean all bedding, carpets, toys and blankets regularly so that animals are not re-infected with fleas. Make sure that you also de-worm your animals as the two parasites go hand-in-hand - remember that dogs get Tapeworm from fleas.  Always keep your garden clean - make sure you clean up after your dog, as this is also where worms can originate. Make VERY sure that the de-flea products you use for your cat are specifically for cats - NEVER use a product for dogs on your cat. Many de-flea remedies are safe for use on dogs only."
