Jas, can I get the raw pumpkin from a can? Would this be good or maybe a jar of baby food carrots. Miette is going through the same thing with worms. It's creeping me out. I didn't go through this with Teddy so I'm trying to figure out what I should do. This will be her 4th worming and she is still pooping out worms. The first week I got her she threw up three round worms. (The Horror!!!) and how often should I give her the pumpkin or the carrots? I was thinking I could give her a teaspoon a week of the baby food carrots

Hey there,
Yes only ever give a dog 100% pure pumpkin. Baby food veggies are good too because they are pure.

I read about carrots used for worming from this article - http://www.bullovedbulldogs.com/worms.htm first I need to state I have not followed this conclusively, they recommed carrots (or other vegs that contain carotenes) or to use garlic for round and tapeworms. Amounts will vary depending on the size of dog. Second, it is probably a good idea to have a vet check the dog to make sure you know what type of worm you are dealing with - since treatment may vary depending on the worm.

Many tradional allopathic vets do no follow alternatives, so if your own vet is open to options - look at meeting with a holistic or homeopathic vets. Perhaps you could email the people from the website I gave, since they sound like they have a lot of knowledge in this area.

Here is another article about worming- http://www.critterchat.net/worming.htm some other's opinions: http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/herbal/msg011901083445.html

good luck

thanks, The Vet said she had round worms. I went out and bought the evict liquid wormer and I gave that to her today. I'm going to go and get the carrots or pumpkin tomorrow. I think the eggs are just showing in her poo now, I feel like I'm becoming a wormologist (hehehe), but really I'm really getting good at figuring what phase the worms are in. She has another appointment with the vet in about 3 weeks so hopefully Miette will be all cleared up by then. Miette is finally 2.6lbs. I guess her system is not as strong as Teddy's he's fine, I hope he does not end up getting worms from Miette. I gave him a tiny bit of the worm medicine this evening when I gave Miette hers, just in case. I'm going to get on those sites now and see what else I can do to help her build up her system.
