Pets and Parasites: What you can do about them

Parasites and your pet

As pet parents, you deal with the good, the bad and the smelly parts of your pet. Not all parts of pet care are glamorous but your pet’s digestive health is an important indicator of their health. Sometimes there are obvious signs and symptoms you can look out for such as diarrhea, gas, constipation and vomiting. Other consequences of digestive health issues are often less obvious and take time to show up such as unexplained weight loss and nutrient deficiency. By the time these sorts of symptoms start to show up your pet is already experiencing serious health consequences. 

This is why we recommend supporting your pet’s digestive health on an ongoing basis. We created NaturPet Intesti Care to do just that. Intesti Care taken daily helps to support healthy digestion. The main ingredient contains diatomaceous earth which is toxic to worms and other digestive parasites but is harmless for pets. Its other ingredients also support digestive health and help the body to rid itself of parasites.

Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous earth rids the body of roundworms, whipworms, pinworms, and hookworms within 7 days of being fed daily. But to be most effective, food-grade diatomaceous earth must be fed long enough to catch all newly hatching eggs or cycling of the worms through the lungs and back to the stomach as diatomaceous earth does not kill the eggs. Once these parasites start dying off it’s important not to stop because the dead and dying parasites can release bacteria and toxins that can overload the system and make animals worse. The good news is the diatomaceous earth absorbs toxins to help them detox as well. Diatomaceous earth is also great because it is rich in silica.

Pumpkin Seed

Intesti Care also contains pumpkin seed, ginger, slippery elm and thyme. Pumpkin seeds have additional anti-parasitic properties that paralyze worms and prevent them from holding onto the digestive wall. Pumpkin seeds are also high in zinc, an important nutrient for digestive enzyme production to keep your digestive cells healthy. Pumpkin seeds also contain digestive health-supporting fiber to keep things flowing smoothly. 

Ginger

Ginger is a well known digestive support botanical. Ginger supports the digestive tract by helping to kill parasites before they reach the intestines. This makes ginger great for daily use to deal with worms and parasites before they colonize the intestines. It also has antiprotozoal properties to make it effective against Giardia, Coccidia and other protozoa. Ginger is also well known to reduce nausea, bloating, constipation and to reduce inflammation, 

Slippery Elm

The slippery elm in Intesti Care has a softening and bulking effect which helps to cleanse the bowels. Poop is one of the body’s main detox pathways, so it’s important for your pet to have regular well-formed stools to ensure things pass smoothly and nothing gets left behind. This includes helping parasites to pass.  This includes parasites as it helps to draw parasites and toxins from the digestive tract. Slippery elm is also high in mucilage and other nutrients that support your pet’s health. 

Thyme

Thyme also found in Intesti Care has natural antibacterial properties which are helpful when it comes to E.Coli.It is extremely effective at correcting conditions such as SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) and in turn promoting regular bowel movements. It’s also helpful in killing parasites.

One and Done Method

This is why we recommend the one and done method. The one and done method is the easiest way to keep your pets worm free and to support their digestive health overall. Simply count the number of servings as you place food into the bin, add the same number of Intesti Care doses, mix and you are done! Feeling lazy? Even if you don’t count there is no risk of overdose Simply ensure that the food is evenly coated with Intesti Care. Any excess will fall to the bottom. Intesti Care absorbs into the food, adopts the same taste of the food, and becomes noticeable. You can mix it into dry wet or raw food at the time of serving as well. 

Problems with parasites

Some people wonder why they would want to take Intesti Care daily if they don’t see any parasites in their pets’ feces. One of the problems is that many parasites are microscopic and aren’t visible to the naked eye. Often parasites won’t be visible or cause obvious symptoms until the effects have caused serious harm. By taking Intesti Care daily you prevent parasites from becoming a problem in the first place while supporting healthy digestion. 

Parasites can cause all sorts of health issues to your pet. Issues can include more obvious symptoms such as gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation and other digestive issues. Sometimes however parasites can occur without digestive symptoms but can still wreak havoc. Parasites use your pet as a host and eat up all their nutrients causing a serious nutrient deficiency. Nutrient deficiencies can cause many different issues including major weight loss, aches and pains, skin bumps or rashes, sleeping problems, anemia, aches, weakness, allergies fever and other diseases.
