Bug-K9 – The all-natural alternative to Flea and Worm Treatments
Are you concerned about the overuse of chemicals on your dog?
Do you ask yourself whether they really need those chemicals every single month to combat fleas and worms?
What if there was a natural alternative?
It’s a known fact that chemicals can cause harm. To us, the environment and our dogs. But protecting our dogs from parasites is a priority, so getting that balance can be so difficult - we get it! Our team of vet and nutritionists set to work on a solution that harnesses superpowers from natural ingredients to promote year-round protection from parasites including fleas and worms. Chemical control for fleas and worms comes in the form of spot ons, tablets & collars.
Now is the time for Superfood Control!
How does Bug-K9 work to get rid of parasites like fleas and worms?
Our unique blend contains the following superfoods that have been proven to combat fleas and worms:
In a study undertaken looking at the usefulness of pumpkin seeds on tapeworm it found that Pumpkin seeds had a 75% success rate in elimination and prevention of tapeworm.
Black Cumin Seeds
Used for centuries as a traditional remedy against all stages of intestinal parasites. Studies have shown that it seems to reduce the ability of the parasite to lay eggs and attach itself to the intestinal wall whilst damaging the adult worm, leaving it more susceptible to the dogs immune system.
Perennial herb, Fennel is rich in potassium, zinc and vitamin C. Fennel is also an excellent source of the essential oils anethole, limonene, anisic aldehyde, pinene, myrcene, fenchone and cineole. Anethole in particular has been found to have powerful antimicrobial properties but is also thought to be effective against worms and parasites due to the volatile oil. Anethole also gives fennel its characteristic anise flavour.
In animal research, both ginger powder and ginger extract had anthelmintic effects, meaning reductions of up to 66.6% in parasitic eggs per gram (EPG) of faeces on day 10 of post- treatment in sheep.
Studies have shown that Cinnamon works in conjunction with Ginger to reduce infection of Giardia.
A whole host of other natural superfoods, including Peppermint, Selenium, Vitamin A and Zinc. All of which having been clinically proven to have beneficial properties in the treatment and prevention of parasitic infections.
A Multi-Pronged Attack
We are aware that in some areas a chemical approach is simply unavoidable. These will be areas where there are high numbers of disease-carrying parasites or heart worm areas. In these areas you need to make sure you use multiple methods of control, incorporating Bug-K9 into your regime. However, this is not the case everywhere. In fact, in most geographical locations this is NOT necessary.
The anti-parasitic market has been dominated for many years by a blanket approach to treating worms, ticks and fleas - solely using potentially harmful chemicals and forgetting about other methods. Chemicals which we are warned to wash off our hands immediately and to wear gloves whilst applying. We are told to not let our dogs swim immediately after application as there is increasing evidence about the pollution caused to our homes, rivers and water courses.
We are Revolutionists!
We have made an alternative even more attainable (and way more affordable) by formulating superfood blends which are easy to feed, with as little as half a scoop a day mixed in with our dogs’ diets.
