Does anybody know any good natural dewormers? My 4 BC's seem to need deworming everytime they lay their teeth on raw meat. We slaughtered the annual cow last week and they of course got their share of the offcuts. The joys of being a farmdog, meat is never in short supply! ;) This afternoon I noticed my male dragging his hind end across the grass again. I know this can also be a sign of his anal glands needing cleaning, but it seems to clear up the moment I deworm him. I think it might in part be due to their habit of burying what they can't eat immediately and digging it out again a few days later.
I've been looking at Herbal pets' cleansing formula, but also saw diatomacueos earth being mentioned as a good natural dewormer. Anybody have any experience with this?

This is something natural and can be added to their food on a daily basis
I have used it for over a year on many things. It can be used to kill bacteria wherever it grows. I use it to clean my teeth and my dogs , heal cuts and scrapes.

While many herbs and homeopathic remedies are suggested for this condition, I believe clay offers one of the finest treatments for all types of parasites. First, its use will stimulate the gall bladder to increase the flow of bile according to Raymond Dextreit, a French naturopath. He writes that no parasite can live too long under any bilious condition.

Just my two cents, just because a substance is natural does not make it either better or safer. If your dog (or you) has an ailment, you need the best, most on target, safest remedy. That might take research, it might take vet (or doctor care) but it is worth getting the right medication for what you need.

Have you had a fecal checked? I would bet it isn't worms, but full anal glands. I know many raw feeders who never have an issue with worms. Are they on heartworm prevention?

^^ That.

Don't just deworm them. Make sure they have worms before you do it. Whether you go natural (which I consider a bunch of hokey to be honest) or with a vet product, deworming without knowing if there are parasites will cause resistance (which you'd know being a farm person since it runs rampant in large animals... )
