Heartworm is treated with Paratox -$l8 (two bottles needed to complete the treatment) in conjunction with a Heartworm 1M Nosode - 2 oz. @ $18.00, 4 oz. @ $36 The results have been consistent, even in severe cases. The treatment is both gentle and simple, easy to administer and has NO side effects. The dog can be re-tested no sooner than 3 months AFTER the last dose of Paratox.

If any vaccines, Ivermectin, or other medication has been give within the past month, an initial clearing should be done to insure the effectiveness of the Paratox treatment. The particular clearing remedy would be determined by what medication had been previously given.

Heartworm Protocol Directions :
Step One :
Paratox - Give one capful orally, once daily. 
Be sure it is given at least 30 minutes away from food. 
This dose continues until both bottles are finished.

Heartworm 1M Nosode - 
Give one full dropper (two pulls/draws from the bottle) on the following schedule :
Week 1 and 2 - Give once daily.
Week 3 and 4 - Give 3 times per week.
Week 5 and 6 - Give twice per week.
Week 7 - Give once a week, continue until six months from beginning of treatment.

Be sure the liquids are given at least 30 minutes away from food. 
Both can be given at the same time, but it is preferable if they are given separately.

Step Two :
Heartworm 1M Nosode - Give once monthly as a preventative in diluted form.

Do NOT retest any earlier than 3 months after completing the last dosage of Paratox. 
On occasion, tests may come back low positive at 3 months. If rechecked in another 3 months, cases are usually clear.  Paratox can be repeated at the 3-month interval if needed.

The Paratox can be obtained from Dr.Wessner at 352-245-2025  Summerfield FL

........... from a post on the Internet
I found this product through a friend of mine who uses it. I called her one day in total frustration that nothing natural that I was using for my pup was taking away her worms. She then told me about this product. She uses it for her family and for her animals. I have used it twice, the fecal sample I had done after the 1st time we used it was clear. I don't plan on doing fecals in the future. I'll use this product 3 - 4 times a year. Our pup does quite well on this product. She hates the taste of it so I have to stick the capsules down her throat. 
I have purchased vitamins, herbs, and various other products from this nutritionist who is also a chemist. I have never had any reason to question him. I personally don't have any info at all other than having used it and my friend's experience with her immediate family, extended family, and her animals. In my previous post I gave his 800 number, I would recommend 
calling his office and getting the write up that he puts out on everything that he develops. Ask whoever answers the phone if there have been any studies done on it. Sorry that I can't help with more info. BTW he's on Pacific time.
