Hookworms

Herbal treatments to help address conditional needs of hookworms.

The immune system is a complex array of cells that are found throughout the body. Immune cells are designed to function with all other cells to provide a fortified defense against unwanted invaders, directed at facilitating normal function and is not intended to be suppressed or stimulated, but in cases of dysfunction, requires whole body systemic support to achieve balance.

The hookworm is a common intestinal parasite that lives in the digestive system of dogs and cats. Hookworm infestation can stress an animal's immune and digestive systems and cause serious disease.

Hookworms have teeth, which enable them to attach to the intestinal walls, causing anemia, blood loss,weight loss, diarrhea and even death. Severe hookworm infection in the lungs can cause your animal to cough and develop pneumonia, which can be fatal.

Symptoms of Hookworms:

Anemia

Pale mucous membranes

Pale gums

Fatigue

Lethargy

Black, tarry stools

Dull coat

Stunted growth in puppies and kittens

Diarrhea

Vomiting

Itching (particularly near anus)

Your dog or cat can become infected with hookworms in a number of ways:

Larvae may be ingested through contaminated food, water or soil. Once ingested, larvae migrate to the intestine where they mature into adults, however, larvae can also take up residency in muscles, fat, or other tissues.

Larvae can enter an animal's body through the skin, usually through the feet. If the foot pads have been penetrated by hookworms, the area may appear red, may bleed, may cause itching and can become infected. Once inside the body, the larvae travel to the lungs and trachea via the bloodstream. While in the respiratory system, they cause irritation and coughing. The larvae are coughed up and re-swallowed, and then migrate to the intestines where they attach to the intestinal wall and mature into adults. 

Hookworm larvae can live in a pregnant dog's or cat's uterus and infect unborn puppies or kittens through the placenta. The larvae enter the lungs and when the puppies or kittens are born, and the same process begins, as the larvae are coughed up, re-swallowed, enabling them to migrate and attach to the digestive system. 

Hookworm larvae can also migrate to the mammary gland of a mother and puppies and kittens can be infected by drinking the mother's milk.  

Important factors to remember about hookworm infestation:
Hookworms can remove large amounts of blood from your animal, causing anemia. To replenish iron that is lost in the blood, supplement with (The Daily Paws) or feed raw organic liver once daily for two to four weeks. 
To ensure that your pet is able to properly digest foods and absorb nutrients, supplement with digestive enzymes and probiotics, such as found in Baby Love Bits.
A majority of puppies and kittens are born with worm infestations. As their immune system matures, they are not strong enough to fend off worms and other parasites and are susceptible to infection. 
Environment can be a factor in the presentation of worms, commonly affecting animals that live in crowded area such as shelters or in less desirable conditions, such as rescued dogs and cats.
If you suspect that your dog or cat has hookworms, take your animal to your veterinarian.
