5. Carrots

Carrots are not only a healthy treat but also help eliminate worms. The fiber in carrots aids in pushing out parasites from the digestive tract.

6. Papaya Seeds

Papaya seeds contain an enzyme called papain, which can help eradicate worms. Crush the seeds and mix them with food.

7. Turmeric

Turmeric has antiparasitic and anti-inflammatory properties. Incorporate a small amount of turmeric in your dog's diet.

Use a natural de-worming remedy 

Use a natural deworming remedy for pets, like Feelgood Pets Worm Dr, to effectively expel intestinal worms such as roundworm, tapeworm, or hookworm, and to assist in cleansing your pet's system from potential infections. In addition, consider adding Diatomaceous Earth to their food. Diatomaceous Earth is a natural worm and parasite repellent that you can easily sprinkle over your pet's food. By incorporating these natural solutions into your pet's routine, you not only protect their well-being but also help keep your entire family worm-free. Choose Worm Dr from the Feelgood Pet range to eradicate intestinal worms and promote a healthy digestive system for your beloved pets.

Preventative Measures

To prevent future worm infestations, maintain good hygiene, regularly clean your dog's living space, and avoid contact with infected animals. Regularly check your dog's feces for evidence of worms - the quicker you catch them, the easier it is to treat!


Deworming your dog is a vital aspect of responsible pet ownership. By using these natural remedies and following preventative measures, you can keep your canine companion happy, healthy, and free from intestinal parasites.

I see that your information refers mainly to dogs.
Which non-chemical flea and which non-chemical worm remedies are safe, specifically for cats (as opposed to dogs). Do you sell these?
