What are Anthelmintics?
There are natural substances that rid the body of unwanted parasites that have been used for centuries provided by Mother Nature! These substances are referred to as Anthelmintics and are rich in volatile oils, tannins and alkaloids that are responsible for their action. They should be used with caution and for short periods of time and are contraindicated during pregnancy and lactation, intestinal disorders and liver and kidney disease. Even with their precautions, we feel they make a healthier Holistic approach to the overuse of chemical dewormers.
