Herbal Pet Parasite Control

worming_catsThere are herbal and natural parasite control products available to enhance the immune system of your pet which helps to repel worms.

Wormers Direct can help you in the transition from a chemical to a herbal and natural parasite control programme.




The pet’s immune system plays an important role in the level of worm infestation that he might have.  The pet will naturally repel a greater number of worms if he has a strong immune system.  Pets with a low immune system, such as the very young or the very old, are more at risk from large worm infestations and worm damage because they have low natural defences.

The herbal and natural products on the market today use natural plants, grasses, herbs and other organic material that assist the immune system in repelling parasites.  They are not licensed in the same way as the chemical wormers, and therefore not subject to the same testing, however the manufacturers have all conducted their own tests that show the effectiveness of the products.

They are very good products to use on organic farms and land.

You can purchase from the complete range of herbal and organic products available in our shop.

We have listed below answers to the questions that we get most frequently asked.
