How To Do a Parasite Cleanse On Your Cat!

Updated: Nov 23, 2023



Just like humans, cats should do a parasite cleanse 2-4 times per year, as maintenance! There are so many natural options for cleansing your cat that won't be hard on his/her body, like prescription anti parasitics from the veterinarian.


Disclaimers:


*Use these for your cats during the full moon cycles ONLY (with the exception of diatomaceous earth and liver/kidney support, which can be used more often)! If you’re using tinctures with alcohol, put the drops into hot water first for 15-30 minutes, in order to burn off the alcohol, before mixing it into your cat’s food. If your cat is on ANY medications, or has serious health issues, please consult your veterinarian, before using any of these.


*Nothing in this document is to be taken as medical advice. Everything stated here is for educational purposes only. What you choose to incorporate from this educational document is done of your own free will.


*Herbs are notoriously contaminated with heavy metals & glyphosate, so be sure to purchase these as organic only. Almost all of these can be purchased on my Fullscript account (if you’re in the United States). On my Fullscript account, I’m able to give a 20% discount on anything you order, as well as free shipping on orders of $50 or more. If you have an HSA through your insurance, you can get reimbursed for most of the Fullscript orders you make, as well.





*DO NOT give your cat everything on this list at once! Chose ONE product to kill parasites/pathogens, ONE liver/kidney support, and ONE binder to use at a time, during the full moon cycles.


Killing Pathogens/Parasites in Cats:


*Wormwood - Don’t use on pregnant cats, lactating cats, or kittens. Dilute 1-2 drops in food per day.


*Black Walnut - Don’t use on pregnant cats, lactating cats, or kittens. Dilute 1-2 drops in food per day.


*Neem - Don’t use on pregnant cats, lactating cats, or kittens. Dilute 1-2 drops in food per day.


*Apple Cider Vinegar - Add ¼ to 1 tsp of raw organic ACV to your cat’s water bowl, or food every day, or during the full moon cycles.


*Goldenseal - This is very bitter, so you may need to disguise the flavor with a treat or mix it into your cat’s food. Do not use on pregnant cats, lactating cats, or kittens. Give 5 to 10 drops of tincture per 20 lbs daily.


*Diatomaceous Earth - It must be food grade! It can be added to wet food, or their water bowl. Start with a lower dosage than recommended and work up slowly/gently. Should be used for at least 30 days in a row to achieve full benefits.


Small cats - up to 1/2 teaspoon per day

Full grown cats - up to 1 teaspoon per day

Large cats - up to 1.5 teaspoons per day

Liver & Kidney Support For Cats:

Dried Root - Finely chop/grind the dried root & put 1 tsp of the root into 1 cup of water that was just boiled. Steep for 20 - 40 minutes & let the tea cool. Use up to 1/4 cup for cats. Add it to your cat’s food, or give it by syringe. Leftovers can be refrigerated.


Powder - The powder can be added to your cat's food. Use up to 1/8 teaspoon for cats up to 11 pounds, and up to 1/4 teaspoon for cats between 12-25 pounds.

*Dandelion - Start with a lower dosage than recommended and work up slowly/gently.


Tincture - Give 1 drop per 1 pound of body weight.


Fresh Leaves - The leaves can be cut & sprinkled into your pet's food (you can also steam them to soften them up first). Use up to 1/2 a leaf for small dogs, up to 1 whole leaf for larger dogs, and up to 1.5 leaves for extra large dogs.


Dried Root - Finely chop/grind the dried root & put 1 tsp of the root into 1 cup of water that was just boiled. Steep for 20 - 40 minutes & let the tea cool. Use up to 1/4 cup for cats. Add it to your cat’s food, or give it by syringe. Leftovers can be refrigerated.
