I have never liked the idea of the chemical products for de-worming my animals, but there did not seem to be much choice! Thanks for providing an effective alternative!- Cindy B.
What is Parasite Dr.?
Parasite Dr. is a 100% herbal remedy specially formulated for the healthy and effective expulsion of intestinal parasites such as roundworm, heartworm and tapeworm.
Containing herbs especially chosen for their known anti-parasitic, antiseptic and bactericidal properties, Parasite Dr. can help to rid your pet of unhealthy infestations of internal parasites and cleanse its blood, while promoting digestive health and balance – all without the unwanted side effects sometimes associated with synthetic parasite medication.

Parasites and your pet
For cats and dogs, a number of intestinal parasites will produce no visible symptoms at all – or at least not at first. Other parasites such as the tapeworm will usually be visible in the animal’s feces and in the hair or on the skin around the anus.
In some cases, apart from slight irritation, your pet may not be too concerned about a mild worm infestation. However, a number of internal parasites can be life-threatening, particularly heartworm. Some pets may even develop a hypersensitivity to worms, which can cause serious complications.
The natural way
When it comes to your pet's health, natural remedies are usually a good place to start. In the wild, animals will instinctively seek out therapeutic herbs to support their health and may roam far to find the herbs they need. However, domestic animals do not have access to a wide variety of therapeutic plants. In addition, pet lifestyles often resemble those of their owners, meaning that health is often compromised on a number of levels. It makes sense therefore that, as owners, we supplement the diets of our pets with herbs that will help to bring their systems into balance. Because domestic gardens usually cannot support the variety of plants our pets need, PetAlive has therefore formulated a range of easy to use and effective natural remedies for pet health.
Parasites are a fact of life and our bodies – and those of our pets – are host to a number of parasites and other organisms. This is quite normal. Given a healthy gut and immune system and access to certain plants, the animal body is designed to keep these parasites in check and ensure that they do not reach proportions that are harmful to health. However, domestication and modern diets have compromised the ability of our animals to maintain systemic balance in a number of areas and to sustain an environment which keeps parasites and other organisms in check.
Although a number of conventional de-worming treatments are very effective, most, if not all, are chemically-based and may be harmful to your pet in the long-term. Continual de-worming with conventional products may also weaken your pet’s immune system.
Holistic practitioners recognize that the whole animal should be treated to maximize health and support balance in the system. Maintaining balance and integrity in the gut and throughout the system and supporting the natural cleansing and purifying mechanisms of the body will go a long way to keep our pets free of parasites. This is where natural remedies can play an important role.
A combination of natural medicine, healthy diet and regular exercise is recommended to promote pet digestive health and integrity, keep immune systems functioning well and support the natural cleansing functions of the blood and digestive system.
Parasite Dr. is a herbal remedy based on a holistic approach to health, helping to address symptoms of and effectively expel intestinal parasites, promoting natural detoxification while supporting overall digestive health and balance. It can make all the difference without the risk of serious side effects.
What are the Ingredients?
Parasite Dr. is a 100% herbal formula and contains the following ingredients in therapeutic dosage: Cloves, Rue, Neem, Rice powder, Wormwood.
- Wormwood (Artemisia absinthinium) is a very well respected herb in both Eastern and Western herbal medicine. It is an excellent digestive tonic and helps to cleanse the blood and digestive tract. (Baumann, I. C., Glatzel, H., and Muth, H. W. “Studies on the effects of wormwood (Artemisia absinthium L.) on bile and pancreatic juice secretion in man”. Z.Allgemeinmed. 6-20-1975; 51(17):784-791.)
- Cloves (Eugenia caryophyllata) contain strong detoxifying agents. Studies have even investigated this herb for its ability to discourage pests. (Barnard, D. R. “Repellency of essential oils to mosquitoes (Diptera: Culicidae).” J Med Entomol. 1999; 36(5):625-629.)
- Neem (Azadirachta indica) is a tree highly prized for making furniture, as its wood is worm resistant. For the same reason, it is a highly prized Ayurvedic medicine. Studies have investigated the properties of this to act as a natural repellant. (Sharma, S. K., Dua, V. K., and Sharma, V. P. “Field studies on the mosquito repellent action of neem oil.” Southeast Asian J.Trop.Med.Public Health 1995; 26(1):180-182.)
- Herb of Grace (Ruta graveolens) has been used for centuries and is included in our Parasite protector capsules for its ability to promote digestive and systemic cleansing. Studies have also shown this herb to have a supportive action on cardiac health. (Chiu, K. W. and Fung, A. Y. The cardiovascular effects of green beans (Phaseolus aureus), common rue (Ruta graveolens), and kelp (Laminaria japonica) in rats. Gen.Pharmacol. 1997; 29(5):859-862.)
- Rice powder (inactive ingredient)
