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 and in the bloodstream, and may help create an unfavorable environment for parasites.
  • Papaya Leaf (Carica papaya) - Contains enzymes (papain) that may digest parasite worms in the intestines.
  • Epazote / Wormseed Aerial Parts(Chenopodium anthelminticum) - Well known as an anti-parasite herb.
  • Male Fern Root (Aspidium filix mas) - May be effective in helping to control blood parasites.
  • Black Walnut Leaves (Juglans nigra) - May help support the body's defenses against parasites and help eliminate larvae stage parasites. It is also popular for its cleansing properties.
  • Ginger Root (Zingiber officinalis) - May work against blood flukes and may help relieve inflammation.
  • Oat Seed (Avena sativa) - A source of vegetable fiber.
  • Parsley Root (Petroselium crispum) - May help to remove waste materials and act as an insect repellent.

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.

Please Note

An herbal approach to heartworm prevention is not like a traditional heartworm pharmaceutical preventative, which chemically kills all heartworm larvae, but it may be an effective and more natural method to prevent heartworm infection.

Consistent dosing is essential for proper protection along with heartworm testing at least every 6 months.

          Comments about Only Natural Pet HW Protect Herbal Formula:

          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.

          Comments about Only Natural Pet HW Protect Herbal Formula:

          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.

            dosage help needed

            Help needed for dosage. Instructions give dosage by "drops." The provided dropper is marked by ml. The bottle is 4 ounces or 119 ml per the label.

            My dogs are 60 and 75 pounds, lots of "drops" to count three times a day at 1 drop for every two pounds. Trying to convert drops to ml, I find on the internet that 20 drops per ml is the rule.

            Instructions say that the 4 oz bottle has "approximately" 2110 drops, but I do the math per the rule of thumb and come up with 2380 drops per 4 oz bottle. I guess I don't appreciate the dosage instructions with respect to the dropper measurements. Suggest the mfg make a dosage chart by weight and ml not "drops."

                    We've only been using this product for about a month, so we will have to wait until Maggie is ready for a heartworm checkup. I mix the drops in with her dry dog food. She ate her food without any reservation and has not experienced any side effects. I do appreciate any effective, all natural products that are preventative. It is a better alternative to the medicines and toxins that dogs take. Thank you for making products such as this one available to pet owners.

I only use natural products on my dog, even though the vet is totally against it... of course!! how else is he gonna make money, right? I love my dog to death and want the best for him, so I do not listen to the vet when it comes to this!! thank you only natural pet store for giving us alternatives for a healthy and long life for our beloved companions!!

                        Comments about Only Natural Pet HW Protect Herbal Formula:

                        10 years ago, a Miniature Schnauzer "rescued me." Like I thought I needed to do in order to be a "responsible pet owner" I let my Vet put her on Heartworm Meds. Right away I started noticing bumps all along her spine. The Vet called them "Schnauzer Bumps" and said there was nothing to worry about. Two years ago, the same Vet diagnosed her with Chronic Renal Failure (CRF). I was heart broken and felt sick inside as I did research and found that one of the most common causes of CRF in dogs and cats is toxins caused by internal consumption of pesticides, such as in Heartworm Meds and Flea and Tick Meds. I stopped the poison immediately and started using HW Protect. One week after I stopped the poison, the "Schnauzer Bumps" disappeared and have not returned. My dog became even more alert and active than before and her appetite improved noticibly. After one year of using this all natural product, I took her to the Vet for a Heartworm check. He was very pleased with himself as he reported to me that she was Heartworm free and that I should keep using the prescription Heartworm Prevention Meds. I wish I had a picture of his face when I told him that she had been on an all natural prevention for an entire year and that the "Schnauzer Bumps" had disappeared as soon as the poison was out of her system. I warn you that your Vet will not approve of all natural treatments of any kind....after all, their business livlihood depends upon us taking our pets in for every little thing and to get vaccinated against every little thing, and to buy prescription meds from them. They do not want people to find out that all natural products work just as well and without side effects. One last note; without the poison in her system, her CRF has not only slowed down, but is reversing. Need I say more?
