I don’t usually post these stories but this dog needs help… and his story made me cry… it is extremely well written, so if you can help Hunter, please do, whether through prayers or donations.
someone recently said to me that I should check whether Cici has heartworms, don’t know why they said this and perhaps I should. not everyone knows what they are talking about… they said that because Cici was itchy and scratching herself (not a symptom of heartworms, see below) but I will discuss heartworms here… let’s see what I come up with.
are there any natural treatments/holistic treatments of heartworms???
there is prevention, taking pills… but what about supplements?
Herbs such as Mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris), Clove Flower Buds (Eugenia caryophyllata), Garlic (Allium sativum), Spearmint Herb (Mentha spicata), Turmeric Root (Curcuma longa), Black Walnut (Juglans nigra), and Wormwood (Artemisia annua) are examples of what can be used to formulate an effective preventative and part of a treatment program.
Robin Sockness-Snelgrove’s dog was diagnosed with a severe case of heartworms. She had decided to do an herbal alternative to the chemical treatment since her veterinarian did not think her dog could survive it. She had seen herbs work effectively for many things with the people and pet members of the household, so she wanted to try the natural route.
It worked! Her dog has tested clear for four (4) checkups and she was interviewed by Whole Dog Journal for an article in the August 2002 issue.
We are now calling the program she used, “The Bandit Program,” after the name of her dog. She has a website to let others know about what she did and is willing to help others in any way she can to save their pets from the poisons of the typical heartworm prevention and treatment.
She used Nature’s Sunshine Products and will recommend only those because she knows the quality, purity and potency which are all required for success. She has worked with over a thousand pet owners since 2001 and has heard too many sad stories of other brands not working, so she will be very up-front with you about only working with Nature’s Sunshine Products.
does anyone know if this Nature’s Sunshine natural product works? please tell us. thanks.
here’s a myth vs fact article about heartworms…
this article seems like a very good overview about heartworm and treatments…
