With the new Parasite Assassin blend, you can use it for either people or pets. While the conventional medical establishment denies that parasites are a common problem for people, they are in favor of being regular with anti-parasitics for animals.
The pharma companies say every two weeks for puppies and monthly or every three months for adult dogs, depending on which meds you use. That’s a lot of drugs.
Obviously, being able to cut that down or eliminate them all together by using our new and natural Parasite Assassin would save money and be less toxic.
But the question remains. How often do you use it? You can’t overdose on Parasite Assassin, but I’m sure you’d still rather not use anymore than you have to. Let’s take a look at why and how dogs get infected so you can decide the level of risk for your dog.
Dogs pick up worms by eating worm eggs or larvae. If they eat grass, dirt or feces, even sniffing ground where eggs can survive long periods in harsh environmental conditions. They (and you) can pickup hookworms by contact with the ground, as in walking on it. You can also track eggs into your house, so having an indoor cat doesn’t mean they aren’t going to be affected as well. Keeping poop picked up in your yard helps. If your dog hunts or scavenges, they could catch it from prey. Roundworm eggs can attach to coats and they can ingest them during the grooming process. Fleas are common transmitters, and can be swallowed during grooming too.
Puppies are the most at risk because their immune systems are still developing and worms can really impact their development. That’s why the every two weeks until 8 weeks old recommendation is in place. Some vets think you need to do once a month up until 6 months old after that. Every three months is standard after that.
The idea is not that they stay magically worm free as they walk over infected ground and eat whatever when you’re not looking, it’s so that the infestation doesn’t build up to such a degree that it causes major problems. We’re always going to be living with some level of infection. The goal is not completely clear, but completely healthy. Some experts believe parasites have useful function in mitigating allergies and autoimmune problems. Everything has a purpose. But we also know that they can be very detrimental and need to be kept in check.
Additionally, this is new, so we don’t know how long it takes to eliminate the worms once you start dosing. I can say that I did a parasite scan on my dog before treating, and another one three weeks later, and based on that, would say it takes less than three weeks. However, we know eggs hatch later etc, so it’s not once and done. If you are local to me, c’mon over and we can do before and afters of either you or your dog.
I’m considering dosing one week a month, the week of the full moon, since I know the full moon to be an opportune time to cleanse, at least for people. That feels like a good and manageable rhythm for me. You feel this out for you and your household. Find some sort of regularity based on health levels, your dog's age, and lifestyle that will work for you, and set a reminder on your phone calendar. If you feel you need to be really diligent with this for a while, there's no harm in having them on it for an extended period. I did it for a solid month and now I feel like I can do that sporadic one week per month plan, which still may be more than is needed. I'm still learning.
I’ve also learned from doing these scans, that members of the same household and their pets have a lot of the same parasites, which is why we recommend everybody use the Parasite Assassin at the same time so you’re not just constantly passing it back and forth.
