My male pitbull (bama) has come down with heartworms I'm pretty sure. I am taking him to the vet to get him tested when I get paid this week.
Anyways, I contacted the vet and asked about treatment options and prices. They quoted me 625 dollars to pump some toxic shit into him that might kill him anyways. When it comes to my babies, it's not that I won't spend top dollar to get them treated. It's just that I won't put anything into their bodies that I wouldn't put into mine. This goes for everything from flea stuff to other treatments.
I never had to deal with heartworms before; so after a little bit of research (google) I ran across many people and places that encourage the use of wormwood extracts, black walnut extracts, and other herbs in combination to kill the worms. I was wondering if anyone else had any experience with natural alternatives to treating heartworms?
