Heartworms have been found in animals worldwide, and in all 50 US States, posing a risk to all of our beloved pets. Because heartworms are transmitted by mosquitoes, it is important to consider the climate, the length and severity of "mosquito season," and the rate of heartworm incidence in your area when planning the best heartworm prevention plan for your pet. A good holistic veterinarian can help you determine what an appropriate heartworm prevention plan should include for your pet, and what role a natural herbal preventative like our HW Protect can play in helping to prevent heartworm disease in your companion.

Only Natural Pet HW Protect Herbal Formula offers an herbal alternative to the chemical heartworm prevention methods available, without the degree of side effects that have been documented with their use. Chemical heartworm preventatives work by continual administration of a low dose of insecticide to kill any developing microfilariae (microscopic sized baby worms). Herbal preventatives work in a similar fashion, using herbs instead of pesticides. NEITHER method kills adult heartworms, so regular testing for heartworm, at least every 6 months, is absolutely necessary regardless of what method you choose for prevention.

HW Protect Herbal Formula is intended for use as a preventative to be used during mosquito season as part of a comprehensive heartworm control program. The formula was designed with two objectives, using herbs that work together to reduce the likelihood of mosquito bites to lower your pet's risk of becoming infected, and to help eliminate existing larvae-stage parasites in the bloodstream. This tincture was developed to help prevent heartworm infestation using extracts of herbs well known for their mosquito repelling properties, and others well known for their anti-parasitic properties.

Heartworm disease (adult heartworm infestation in the heart and lungs) is a very serious health concern and treatment for heartworm disease should ALWAYS be guided by a veterinarian. If your pet already has heartworms, then we would suggest the Para-Gone Herbal Formula. If your pet has heartworm disease, then you should consult a veterinarian and follow a traditional heartworm disease treatment program, as elimination of heartworm can be complicated and carries additional risks to an animal's health.

Using an insect repellent like Only Natural Pet Herbal Defense Spray may also help prevent heartworms by keeping mosquitoes away from pets when they are outside.

As with all herbal remedies and treatments, the healthier the animal is overall, the more effective the treatment will be. Providing your companion with the best diet along with proper health-supportive products for optimal health will go a long way to preventing disease and making them less appealing and susceptible to parasites. Please see our articles, What You Need to Know About Your Pet’s Food, and The Importance of Daily Supplements for Your Companion for more information.

For additional information on heartworm and parasite infections, you will find our articles, Intestinal Worms and Heartworm, and Natural Worm Control, available in our Holistic Healthcare Library, or consult a holistic pet care reference book, such as Herbs for Pets, Dr. Pitcairn's Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats, or The Encyclopedia of Natural Pet Care.

Herbs and Properties for Which They Were Selected

  • Wormwood Aerial Parts (Artemisia absinthium) - May help eliminate microfilaria and developmental stage heartworm parasites in the bloodstream, and may help create an unfavorable environment for parasites.
  • Black Walnut Green Hulls (Juglans nigra) - Contains astringent tannins that may help kill and expel a variety of worms and other parasites.
  • Ginger Root (Zingiber officinalis) - May have specific activity against heartworms and supports a healthy inflammation response.
  • Oat Seed (Avena sativa) - A source of healthy fiber that helps maintain immune-supporting gut bacteria.
  • Andrographis (Andrographis paniculata) - is an adaptogenic herb that may offer support for parasitic infections.
  • Parsley Root (Petroselium crispum) - Has blood- and liver-purifying properties; supplies Vitamin K; and has strong antioxidant capability.

About Only Natural Pet Herbal Remedies

Our Only Natural Pet Herbal Remedies have evolved from the work of holistic veterinarians and experienced herbalists to bring you a wide selection of natural health care products for your animal companion. Herbal formulas are easy to administer and easy for your pet to assimilate, making these treatments both simple and effective. Herbs are also great natural sources of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, enzymes, and many other nourishing substances.

Only the finest herbs are used in our formulas, and the careful selection and blending of these herbs helps them interact synergistically for stronger, more beneficial effects. Nothing is more natural than harnessing the healing powers of the herbs and flowers around us. When ill or injured, animals in the wild have an uncanny ability to seek out and eat plants with properties that will help them heal.

Natural therapies like our herbal formulas do not just attack the symptoms of a disorder. Instead they rebuild your companion’s total health and facilitate their body’s innate ability to heal itself. When natural remedies are used in conjunction with a nutritious diet, your pet can enjoy a healthier life.

The effectiveness of HW Protect Herbal Formula, as with ANY herbal or natural remedy, varies with the health of the animal. An animal being fed a high quality diet with adequate vitamins and enzymes will respond better than an animal on a poor quality diet. Each animal’s system needs support in healing from within. Please see our article, "What You Need to Know About Your Pet’s Food," for information about feeding the best quality diet.

Available in 2 oz and 4 oz liquid. Each 2 oz bottle contains approximately 1,050 drops, and each 4 oz bottle contains approximately 2,100 drops of the formula.

This product was made in a FDA-approved facility using human-grade ingredients.

    I give my 2 mini schnauzers these drops for heartworm and they love it. I feel good knowing these drops are herbal and natural. I have seen no side effects and I've been using it for a year now. Not many people are aware that the "non-natural" products the vets sell contain harmful pesticides that can kill your pets! Going natural is always best!

        This product is an amazing natural alternative to harmful heartworm drugs. My dog has been on this product for over 5 years and have always tested negative for heartworm. We live in a very hot climate (Florida)so I use it almost all year round. I add the drops to my dog's food and water daily. I use this in combination with onlu natural pet herbal flea spray and that is the perfect combination to keep the mosquitos away! Highly recommend it!

        Caution!! Contains Wormwood & Black Walnut...TOXIC to dogs

        By Edie

        from Santa Fe, New Mexico

        About Me Long-time Pet Owner

        Comments about Only Natural Pet HW Protect Herbal Formula:

        I was excited when I first came across this website and found this product. I took my dog off harsh and toxic prescription heart worm prevention meds. He was only on it for a few months before I decided that I'd rather keep him protected with a natural product. We live in New Mexico where it's typically dry and mosquitos are more of a rarity here. Because of all the rain we received this year, ending our 7 year drought, the mosquitoes were heavy. I immediately ordered HW protect and gave him this everyday for the rainy summer months. I wish I would have done better research before treating my dog with this for several months of daily usage. I have recently come across numerous sites about the dangers of using Wormwood and Black Walnut (two ingredients in HW Protect). Wormwood has been known to depress the central nervous system and cause mind-altering changes leading to psychosis when used over long periods of time (usually months). Wormwood should ONLY be used, at most, for 3 consecutive days with vet supervision. Black Walnut has been found to be an allergen to too many dogs causing hives and other types of allergies. I'm disappointed to say the least that a company with trained holistic veterinarians would concoct a formula that uses potentially toxic ingredients. It's important to remember that our furry friends rely on us to keep them safe and healthy. I didn't experience any visible negative reactions with my dog after months of using this product, but that's not to say it didn't have a negative "silent" affect on him. Knowing what I know now about these two toxic ingredients, no dog owner should give their pets this formula. I suppose the lesson here, is to educate and get the word out. I have stopped using this product and will look for a safer and truly non-toxic formula elsewhere.

          Comments about Only Natural Pet HW Protect Herbal Formula:

          Using this as a PART of heartworm prevention for my immunosuppressed 2 year old. It tastes TERRIBLE so I hate to have to squirt it down her throat three times a day (I tasted it and it made my tongue go numb). It's SUPER bitter so if you can mix it with food it's better for sure. You can also add it to water but she wouldn't go near it. I haven't had her heartworm tested yet so FINGERS CROSSED it works, but to be clear, this is PART of a regimen. I use lemon essential oil on her collar to help prevent mosquitos from approaching her, spray her with a homemade lemon mosquito repellant, use Mosquito Beater in my yard, and administer ONP's Garlic and Brewers Yeast capsules daily. PLEASE do your research on heartworms if you really care about a holistic approach with your pets. That stuff the vets give you is pure poison. Give me holistic any day!

            I would love to use this for our 5 large dogs - they range in weight form 60# border Collie to a 100# Great Pyrenees. I did the math and we would go through a 4 oz. bottle every 4.5 days! I hate giving them the Rx meds. It would be nice if this came in an bigger economy size for those who own large and/or many dogs.

                    I've been using this stuff since around May. I live in humid Texas where there are plenty of mosquitos and fleas. After putting two and two together when my 7 year old shitzu/peke mix would vomit for a couple of days after each iverhart pill, I decided to get him off it immediately. I put about 7 drops on each of his three, 1/2 cup daily food servings. No fleas or heart worms after his first vet check up in September, but best of all, NO VOMITING post administration. I'll certainly keep using this along with a homemade essential oil spray to keep bugs off.

                    My two dogs are about 14 lbs each and have been on this product for approx one year now. They have tested negative for heart worm twice over the past year. Interestingly I have seen no fleas on them and when they were on Revolution I would find one or two fleas on them at times. We live in Houston, TX, so there is a healthy flea and mosquito population here. I have been happy with the product although are vet continually warns us against not using a pesticide. My only complaint is that the bottle with the dropper leaks at the top sometimes and can be a bit messy. It's not enough to keep me form buying it though. Having something that works naturally to repel parasites is worth it.
