I try to treat/prevent things by natural means when possible. To that end, I've been giving Kacy 1 tsp of DE every day in an effort to rid him of tapeworm(s). It's been 3 weeks now, and there are still worm bits exiting his rear every day, not as many as in the beginning, but still. I do know that "natural" remedies are usually not as quick as commercial chemicals, but I was wondering if anyone might have experience treating tapeworms with DE, and if so, it is normal/usual for it to take this long? It's getting a bit tedious picking those things off every day, and he's not loving it so much either. Maybe he actually had more than 1 (?) and it's just taking longer than I had hoped?
Nothing to do with what I just said, but I'm oh so tired of that Science Diet ad at the top of the page that pops open every time cursor passes over!!!! Okay, I feel better now that I got that off my chest (sort of).
Tapeworms come from fleas. It is doubtful there is just one tapeworm. They also break into segments.

Well, it took almost 4 weeks, but not a single worm "segment" on the booty for the past 3 days. Ding dong, the wicked tapeworm(s) is dead!! I'm doing all that I can "non chemically" to keep fleas away but still see 1 every now and again. I'm going to give a "maintenance" of DE 2-3 days a week to hopefully keep any new critters from taking hold. Good luck to me
