Pumpkin Seeds

Include pumpkin seeds in your Scotties diet and say goodbye to worms without having to use any toxic dewormers or chemical pesticides.

If your Scottie shows any sign of worms, reach for the Pumpkin Seeds, they can rid your Scottie of worms without the adverse effects on their health that veterinary dewormers deliver.

Pumpkin Seeds Fight Worms

Raw, organic pumpkin seeds have long been used to treat a variety of parasitic and other ailments.

The flesh and seeds of the pumpkin were used by the Native American tribes to:

  • heal wounds

  • cure kidney ailments and urinary problems

  • as a parasitic treatment on humans.

In recent times, herbalists have discovered that the seeds of the pumpkin also work as an effective deworming agent against tapeworms and other intestinal parasites in dogs and humans.

Pumpkin seeds contain the amino acid called cucurbitin, which paralyzes and eliminates the worms from the digestive tract. Pumpkin seeds have other health benefits too – they are loaded with protein, amino acids, fiber, iron, copper, phosphorus and magnesium, calcium, zinc, potassium, folic acid and niacin; all important nutrients to your Scottie’s overall good health.

Feeding Directions

Pumpkin seeds can be fed whole as a treat for your Scottie. Try not to feed the salted seeds from the grocery store; find some raw, organic seeds instead. If they don't enjoy them as a treat, you can grind them in a coffee grinder or Magic Bullet and add them to their meals. For Scotties I recommend to give up to 2 teaspoons once or twice a day until they are rid of the parasites.

I add ground pumpkin seeds to my BARF (Bone And Raw Food) mix. That way my Scotties are getting the nutritional benefits of the seeds as well as protection from worms and other parasites, every day!
