Gentian Root is found in the highest pastures of the Alps and the Himalayas. Because of the extreme cold temperatures, roots take from seven to ten growing seasons to mature. This herb has been used in European medicine for the 2200 years since its discovery by its namesake, Gentius, King of ancient Illyria (180-167 BC). Herbalists agree that this herb is one of the most powerful yet safe natural dog and cat dewormers known.
Black Walnut Hull has historically been used as an antiviral, antifungal, and anti-parasitic. Studies show this powerful ingredient can eliminate a wide range of internal parasites and symptoms of dog worms and cat worms without any harmful effects.
Cloves have been used for culinary and medicinal uses since antiquity. The distinctive aromatic oil is derived from the dried buds of this evergreen which is native to the tropics. Cloves are a favorite among medicinal herbalists when used as a drugless anthelmintic: defined as any medicine used to destroy parasitic worms. With parasitic worms gone, the symptoms of dog worms and cat worms will also be gone.
Papaya Leaf is taken from the small tropical tree that produces the large, delicious fruit. The leaves of papaya are used as a vermifuge; that is, to remove intestinal worms. The leaves of the papaya are invaluable because of their high content of tannins. These tannins protect the intestine from re-infestation as its proteins coat the lining of the intestinal wall so that worms can no longer attach themselves.
