    We have used the cleansing on a rescue cat that had difficulty with his waterworks. Fantastic results.

    I came across this product and I am extremely impressed with what I have read so far. If we purchase this product for our dog and cats, does it come with dosing information? Also, can it be used for birds as well? We currently have cockatiels but we want to get chickens once we have moved. Does it come as a powder or in capsules? Additionally we live in Canada, a d I was wondering where we can purchase it, online or otherwise? Thanks!

      Diane, thank you. It can be used for birds. It comes as a powder which you add to the food.From Canada, you would need to order from this website. 🙂

    How do you know if your cat has worms or should you vet check? He does eat birds and mice. Is it save to use your product anyway without vet check?

      It is always best to get the vet to check. But it is also fine to give this product anyway. It will do no harm.

    PS, wanted to give you feedback on the deworming formula, thought you might find this interesting… I do regular fecal egg counts and before I tried the deworming formula (at an old yard) the count was average or just above necessary amount to deworm each time, when my horse was treated with your deworming formula her egg count went to absolutely 0 and stayed 0 for many, many months (longer than usual) – we even did multiple tests as we were worried it wasn’t accurate – but it stayed 0. Eventually it wore off and she had to be dewormed again, the new yard dewormed her with the vets suggested dewormer and within a short few months already I just did the fecal test again and the amount of EPG was shockingly high! Even though this yard is extremely clean and does totally new bedding each day and doesn’t cross contaminate any items… so I think it has been proven to me which dewormer is efficient/superior and will be using for certain in future. Your dewormer not only works fast but also works for longer than others…

    From a well known and respected herbalist “If you need to resort to Oregon grape, black walnut or wormwood, it’s important to understand that they can be harsh on the liver. Giving milk thistle seed at the same time can help protect the liver from their toxic effects.”

    Your product contains wormwood, so how is the potential liver toxicity mitigated in your formulation?

      Wormwood can be harsh on the liver if fed everyday. This is why we recommend using this product for four days every 3 months. Also, our dose is not high and well within safe limits.

    Hi, I am thinking of buying this formula for my 3 dogs but am a bit confused. In the info about it it says to use for 4 days and skip for 17. Then keep repeating. Is this just for if there is already an infestation, or as a maintenance like a conventional wormer that you’d give every six months. In other words, if I buy this, do I keep repeatedly feeding for 4 days and then skipping for 17, or do I do one cycle every six months as you would with a chemical wormer?

      Hi Donna. The life cycle of the parasite is 21 days. So the idea is to zap them for 3 days then do a final cleanup on the last day. Then to repeat every 3 or 6 months as you would a normal dewormer.

      Yes, Viana. You can use them all together if you like. They are very gentle.

    I saw this product in our local vet shop and it looks fantastic. Reading the comments above it is definitely worth a try. I am in the health industry myself and I am hoping to get a full ingredients listing as I am very particular about what goes into my cats’ bodies… are there fillers, flow agents, preservatives, added vitamins (what form), etc etc. If you could get back to me with this info soon I would be very grateful as I am keen to starting using this! : )

    I used the Cleanser on a horse the vet diagnosed with parasites in his eyes and WOW did it work, there was nothing left, but now we need to do our whole yard ASAP!!!!

    The vet said she had never seen a horse who struggled so much with parasites in his eyes! We were using these tiny tubes of eye ointment and nothing was working till she looked in his eyes and said there are parasite eggs and we need to get them out somehow. So I suggested your Cleansing Formula as I know how the ingredients work on humans, and we used 1 tub till it was finished and that was 6 months ago.

    I have used your Cleansing Formula before and it successfully irradicated parasite eggs which had been laid in the eyes of our horses – WONDERFUL PRODUCT, PLEASE DO NOT DISCONTINUE!!!!!!!

    I would like to purchase enough Cleansing Formula for 26 horses, would you be able to help me the products and the quantities to use?

    Cleansing Formula worked really well on our rescue puppies who had the worst worm burden I have ever seen. They had several different deworming formula’s and once they had a bit of sustenance and body condition, we incorporated the Cleansing Formula into their treatment with great results. It took us a total of 6 weeks to rid them of the worm infestation completely and get them to a point of health, with a few vet visits in between. They went to their new homes, healthy & robust!

    You need to add black walnut tincture to make this a perfect wormed. All three must be used in conjunction.

      Reese, I look at two things when doing my formulations:

      1. Efficacy (in terms of good, double blind scientific studies), and
      2. Safety concerns

      Black Walnut scored too low on 1 and too high on 2.
      That said, if you’ve got evidence to the contrary, please let me know – I’m always interested.
