Find out how to cure your cat’s worms naturally
Having worms is a danger to your cat’s health, but you may be worried about using medication for them. This article will teach you how to get rid of them in a natural way.
What You’ll Need:
1 lb. fresh ground turkey, 1 cup uncooked white rice, freezer-safe storage container(s)
Cook your rice according to package instructions. One cup uncooked should yield 2 cups cooked. Once your rice is cooked, allow it to cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, mix the rice and the raw turkey. Try not to handle it any more than necessary, work with it just enough to combine the ingredients. Once the rice and turkey are mixed, divide the mix into 16 equal-sized balls. Place the balls into freezer-safe storage containers, making sure to leave some space so they don’t stick together when they freeze.
Each morning, remove one ball from the freezer and allow it to thaw. Break the ball up in a dish (not your cat’s normal food dish) and allow them to eat it. If they are reluctant to eat it, take away their regular food until they have eaten the meat ball.
By the time you get to the last meat ball, your cat’s worms should be gone. It’s a good idea to check their backside and litter box and monitor the worms leaving the cat’s body. You should notice fewer and fewer as the 16 days go by. It’s worth noting that if the worms are gone before the end of the 16 days, the cat may stop eating the meat. That’s fine, as long as the worms are gone.
There’s a lot of debate on the internet about feeding cats raw meat. Some people believe that a raw diet is the way to go, others insist it is dangerous. I suggest that you do your own research and make an informed decision on your own. I don’t feed my cat a full raw diet, but I found that this method worked wonderfully for getting rid of her worms. After using this treatment, my vet gave Jynx a clean bill of health.
How you treat any condition in your pet is a personal decision, but I suggest that you make an informed decision by doing research first. When I chose this treatment I looked for people who had used the method, and vets who supported its use. I also looked into the benefits and dangers of traditional medicated treatment. I chose to go with a natural method, and I’m glad I did.
