My favorite treatment for most worms (but not flukes) is male-fern root powdered and mixed with the stuff from the inside of a locust bean. It's a very old-time remedy. I've personally given it to humans, cats, dogs, cattle, and pigs with worms. It's quite safe, and effective against all types of worms. Tastes like banana, too.

For flukes I find wormseed tea to be much better. I haven't used it (for this condition) very much, though, so others' experience might differ.
