Turmeric contains several compounds that help fight and expel tapeworms. In addition, turmeric helps fight inflammation in the intestines caused by the presence of tapeworms.
Plus, it helps keep your dog’s immunity strong.
Add a ¼ teaspoon of fresh turmeric for every 10 pounds of weight to your dog’s food. Do it once daily for up to 2 weeks.
Caution: Do not feed turmeric to pregnant dogs.
Both coconut oil and dried coconut can be used to remove tapeworms from the body of your canine friend.
Both forms are rich in medium-chain triglycerides like lauric acid, capric acid, and caprylic acid, which help combat intestinal parasites like tapeworms. These saturated fatty acids make the body produce a substance that effectively kills parasites in the intestines.
- Sprinkle 1 to 3 teaspoons of dried coconut onto your dog’s food, depending upon his size. Repeat twice a day for up to 10 days.
- Alternatively, feed organic, virgin coconut oil to your dog. Start gradually and work up to 1 teaspoon per day per 10 pounds of body weight.
