Pumpkin seeds to deworm dog?

    Hi all,
    Last year around this time we had a bout with worms with my mutt mix dog. She's two years old, and I think she's got them again. We got a dewormer from the vet. I've been researching, and I came across a site that said pumpkin seeds would take care of it. Anyone had experience using this? Thanks!

    Personally, I would stick with the dewormer the vet gave you. I did some research on the pumpkin seed thing when I was having trouble finding a wormer for my rabbits, but the research I read was not very promising.

    They don't do anything for worms. I would just get some dewormer from your vet.
