Using HVE Parasite Formula to kill heartworms!

Heartworms are a major problem for a large percentage of the United States canine population. This is bad news for dog owners but there is even worse news:
the therapy for positive dogs can be as lethal as the disease itself! Read our guest article about Max and Immiticide poisoning. Did you know that Merial, the manufacturer of this drug, labels it ‘code black’. This means that it can kill your dog with one treatment. This compound is an arsenical chemotherapeutic agent.
The safety data sheet for this drug states that it has a low margin of safety. Dosing is very critical. A single dose of 7.5 mg/kg (3X the recommended dose) can result in pulmonary inflammation, edema, and death.
In some patients, ½ the dosage creates the same disastrous scene. They do not know how your dog will react until they administer it. Highly infested patients are of greater risk of throwing an embolism--a clot of dead worms--that puts the pet into pulmonary or cardiac arrest. The injection itself is very, very painful and debilitating. Many dogs, such as Max in the case history, have serious, often permanent neurological disorders.

There are other alternatives to these poisonous chemicals. Our parasite formula has been used for several years now to treat heart flukes successfully. Heart flukes are parasites as big as your thumb nail that invade the heart. We find many cases of these nasty parasites in the Pacific Northwest because of many months of moisture. The intermediate host of this parasite is the snail--hence your dog (or cat or horse) drinks from a puddle where a snail has laid an egg and is immediately infested with the heart fluke. In my holistic practice, I find flukes and a host of other rarely diagnosed parasites through radionic testing. Many dogs, cats, and horses have serious problems caused by undiagnosed parasites that can migrate anywhere in the body. For example, a horse that has a hard time focusing or concentrating may have roundworms that have migrated to the brain. A cat with chronic diarrhea may have a heavy infestation of intestinal flukes. A dog with chronic respiratory problems may have lungs full of pulmonary flukes.

Heartworms, on the other hand, are spread by mosquitoes and are very prevalent now in non-mountainous areas of the United States. Any dog that does not take a preventative for heartworms will develop that telltale cough which is the indicator that the nasty little worm is starting to grow in the dog’s heart. Keep in mind that the drugs used in heartworm preventative have their specific dangers too--ALL DRUGS HAVE SIDE EFFECTS. Heartworm preventatives are a huge income to both veterinary clinics and the big pharmaceutical companies that manufacture the drugs.
Actually heartworm ‘preventatives’ such as Heartguard, Revolution, Interceptor, Sentinel, Proheart 6 (a very lethal drug that was pulled from the shelf in 2004 for high fatalities but is back on the market), do not actually prevent heartworm infestations. They simply kill whatever microfilaria (baby heartworms) have entered the dog’s body in the past 30 days. Heartguard, which is just a form of the cattle wormer Ivermectim, is very lethal to specific breeds such as Australia Cattle Dogs and Collies.

We are now using our HVE Parasite Formula to treat all stages of heartworms. As with heart flukes, we have found that a slow killing of these heart parasites is much safer to the patient than the immediate kill-off with drugs such as Melarsomine (Immiticide). We are recommending a therapy (by weight) of daily treatment for seven days for a total of three rounds with two- four day breaks in between. In other words, treat the heartworm-positive dog once daily for seven days; stop for four days; repeat for seven days; stop for four days and repeat daily for a third round of seven days. In severe cases, we may have to go another round or two of therapy.

We are also doing some case studies with a group of foster dogs imported to Washington state from Texas. Seventy dogs were transported here and left in a neglected situation. None of them had evidently been on any heartworm preventative. We are using several of these positive (heartworm occult positive) canines to verify our HVE parasite formula protocol. We will keep updating you on this documentation as we proceed. So far, we have NO side effects in these positive cases--all dogs are doing very well. I also believe that HVE Parasite Formula can be used to prevent heartworm infections.

The infected canine patient should also be evaluated to see if extra supplementation is needed. One excellent addition to this regimine would be HVE Immune Pro to boost the dog’s immune system as we clear the parasites.

"Max the boxer has had quite a life. He was born in Texas on July 25, 2006 and for the first 2 ½ years of his life, he lived with a family who had too much going on to take proper care of him. They had too many kids and other dogs and so Max, being an energetic boxer puppy and too much to handle, got chained to a tree in the backyard. Finally the family decided to give Max up for adoption so that another family could offer him the life he deserved. Unfortunately, by the time they had decided to do that, Max had already been bitten by a mosquito that carried heartworms and it subsequently infected him...."
