Herbal treatments to help treat roundworm in dogs and cats.

The immune system is a complex collection of cells that are found throughout your pet’s body that align to form a fortified defense against unwanted invaders. It is an intricate system that keeps your pet healthy and protects them against allergens, viruses, bacteria, microbes, parasites and toxins.

The immune system is also tasked directed at facilitating normal function and is not intended to be suppressed or stimulated. In cases of dysfunction, an animal’s body requires whole body systemic support. If your pet’s immune system is weakened, every body system is at risk.

Roundworms are common intestinal parasites that affect both cats and dogs. In fact, most puppies and kittens are infected with roundworms at birth or within the first few months of life as the worms are often transmitted in the uterus or while nursing from their mothers.

These large, cylindrical and cream colored worms can grow as long as seven inches and can cause a number of unpleasant symptoms for your pet such as vomiting, diarrhea, poor nutrition and distended stomachs (often seen in puppies and kittens with a worm infestation) if they are left untreated.

To fully understand what causes infestations of roundworm, it is important to look at the life cycle of the actual worm. Female roundworms can produce up to 100,000 eggs in a single day! The larvae are then passed in the stool and the embryonic worm develops within this larva in the outside environment.

It takes approximately 1 month for the egg to become infected and can remain so for approximately a year. The infected egg is then picked up by your pet, usually in the course of normal grooming, and ingested. The second stage larvae is now in the intestine of your pet, from where it can migrate to other tissue areas of the body such as the lungs and liver where it can develop into a third stage larvae.

Next the developed larvae burrow into the airway and up towards the throat where they are coughed up and swallowed and once again find themselves back in the intestine where they can hatch into worms. In serious infestations, the presence of many larvae in the lungs and airways can cause a serious case of pneumonia. Once the mature worms are back in the intestines they can then start to mate and shed eggs, and the cycle begins again.

The larvae can also migrate to the uterus of pregnant animals and as a result many kittens and puppies are infected with worm larvae before being born. .

Other suggestions:

Because it is not always possible to know when your pets have been exposed to infected roundworm larvae it is important to have your pet regularly treated. Some pets are at higher risk than others. An indoor cat is low risk and may only need treatment once a year, where a dog that interacts with other dogs may need treatment every three months.

Roundworm larvae can be transmitted to humans and while the worms do not develop, the larvae can cause serious damage to body tissue. Washing your hands after handling pets and cleaning litter boxes and outdoor waste are good preventatives.

Prevent your pet from interacting with other animal’s feces and rodents to help avoid infection. If your cat or dog is an avid hunter it is at a much greater risk of contracting a number of unwanted parasites.
