About Parasites in Dogs
Intestinal parasites, including roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and tapeworms, can damage your dog's digestive tract and interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients. Roundworms are the most common internal parasite affecting dogs, however, heartworms are the most serious and can lead to heart disease and early death. Heartworms are transmitted through mosquito bites and live in the major blood vessels of the lungs, causing inflammation of the blood vessels.
Preventative vet medications and dog parasites remedies are essential to protect against heartworms. These all-natural supplements work together with medication prescribed by a veterinarian to comprehensively support your pet’s health and well-being.

How Parasites Infect Dogs
Intestinal parasites are often passed through eggs in feces, directly to puppies in utero, or through their mother's milk. A secondary host may also be involved. For example, tapeworms can be passed through flea larvae or in the tissue of infected prey such as mice.
Dogs can also be infected by protozoa such as coccidian or toxoplasmosis — microscopic parasites that live inside the cells of the digestive tract. Toxoplasmosis is transmitted through eggs or indirectly through infected cysts in raw meat (usually prey), but causes only mild digestive upset. Other internal parasites include flukes (flatworms that can infect the intestine or liver) and lungworms. External parasites include fleas, ticks, mange mites, and ear mites. Monthly preventatives for external parasites are a well-known recommendation for pets, but using dog parasites remedies on a planned basis is also a good idea.
Intestinal parasites don't usually cause infection in people, however, hookworm infections can lead to abdominal pain and enteritis in people with a weakened immune system. Roundworm larvae also have the potential to infect people and ingested larvae can invade sensitive organs such as the eye or a developing fetus. Using dog parasites remedies will help keep any parasites from spreading to you or your loved ones.
Groom your dog regularly and look for parasites or the evidence they leave behind including skin sores, hair loss, and dry, flaky skin. To help prevent disease, reduce your dog's exposure to blood-sucking insects and examine their feces, looking for traces of worms. It's also important to wash your hands well after exposure to feces, vomit, or body fluids.
Herbal supplements can be used to support preventative measures or as a dog parasite remedy to support their recovery. Help keep your dog happy and healthy with NHV.
