Recently, the prices of both Hoegger’s and Molly’s Herbals dewormers went up. Because they are getting so expensive, I have done some research and have found some recipes for homemade herbal wormer. I am ordering the herbs in bulk from Mountain Rose Herbs. Because all the herbs are Organic and Red Lake Earth diatomaceous earth is OMRI listed, this dewormer is 100% Organic. Check back soon for updates! This is the recipe I finally chose:
Homemade Herbal Animal Dewormer/Tonic
Dosage: 1 teaspoon for every 30 pounds.
1 cup Black Walnut powder. (not for bred does or horses)
As a rule of thumb, use 1 cup of the powdered herbs to 2 cups of the cut herbs, except for the cloves and the diatomaceous earth.
Administer for 7 days, morning and evening, every 6-8 weeks and as needed. Do not use Wormwood or Black Walnut for bred animals; do not use Black Walnut for equines.
Worming Kids: Administer the three day dose starting at 3 weeks of age and repeating every 3-4 weeks until the kids/lambs/calves/etc, are 6 months of age, then then begin them on the 8 week cycle. If you see any diarrhea, immediately administer three days in a row. This also helps prevent coccidiosis.3 people like this
