Parasite Support for Pets
Worms and parasites can live in all the lovely things that your curious furkiddo may stop to investigate on their daily walks like dead animals, soil, and poop, so we recommend deworming your pet at least twice a year. Deworm puppies, kittens, and outdoor cats at least three or more times a year. If left untreated, worms can cause severe health issues, including damage to the GI tract, blood loss, and malabsorption. Some worm infections can also affect humans, so deworming your pet regularly is a good habit to keep your pet happy and parasite-free!
Most common signs of worms and parasites in cats and dogs:
- Weight loss
- Pot-bellied appearance
- Diarrhea (worms may be present in stool)
- Dull looking coat
- Scooting (dragging hindquarters along the ground)
- Lack of appetite
How NHV Remedies Support Pets With Worms
To eliminate your furkiddo’s parasites, your veterinarian may recommend an oral deworming agent. For a natural approach, which may help with the gentle elimination of worms, we recommend NHV’s Natural Deworming Gold Kit. This bundle, which can be used in conjunction with traditional dewormers, contains Inulin-PK and Milk Thistle. Inulin-PK contains many herbal ingredients with antiparasitic and antimicrobial properties to help fight infection and gently eliminate parasites. The Milk Thistle in this kit may help improve liver function and help remove the toxins nasty worms may leave behind. Most worms are parasitic in nature and can release their own toxins to get what they need from your pet’s body. So the liver could become overworked to get rid of extra toxins, as well as trying to replenish dwindling nutrient levels, throughout the body.
The herbs in Inulin-PK have been used for fighting parasitic infections for thousands of years; it can be used twice a year as yearly care. If your little one has worms, continue on the product long term until the worms have passed. This gentle yet effective supplement kit can be used alone or alongside pharmaceuticals as additional support.

Types of Worms
Roundworms can infect both dogs and cats. They are commonly ingested through the soil and fecal matter that is contaminated with eggs and larvae as well as ingesting infected animals like rats, birds, and insects. The problem with Roundworms is that as adults, they can cause severe damage in the lungs. They live in the small intestine, where they grow and multiply exponentially that can lead to a severe intestinal blockage. Unfortunately, humans can get roundworms by walking barefoot on contaminated soil or grass.
Hookworms can also affect both kitties and pups. They can be swallowed but can also infect pets by penetrating the skin in their paws. Like Roundworms, hookworms can be passed on to their offspring through nursing and in utero. These parasites will attach themselves to the inner intestinal wall and survive by feeding on their host’s blood supply. Hookworms can cause severe blood loss and anemia and can be fatal if left untreated. Pets infected with hookworms will exhibit symptoms like weight loss, runny and bloody stools. They can also be transmitted to humans and have been known to cause a skin disease called cutaneous larval migrants.
Much larger and flatter than most worms, tapeworms are a lot easier to notice in poop. Both dogs and cats can get sick from tapeworms, typically transmitted by eating small rodents that are carrying infected flea larvae. Like hookworms, tapeworms also live inside the small intestine. These parasites generally do not cause serious issues for your furkiddo but can cause a bit of an upset tummy. They are often visible in feces (they look like grains of rice) and they can sometimes be seen poking out around your pet’s anus. These tapeworms cannot be transmitted to humans, due to the fact that the human and animal tapeworm species differ slightly.
