    Default Pumpkin seed oil....anyone?

    I have a very dear friend from High School that has an organic Pumpkin seed farm. I have been talking to him about using for a supplement instead of salmon oil. Besides the obvious benefits, it is supposed to be good for worms and digestive problems.

    Anyone use it? I am ordering some and going to try it. He says that the customers that use it for their dogs love it.

    Always with me

    I guess after reading about it I have a few thoughts. There seems to be a wide variability in the amount on Omegas in different growers crops, reports of stomach upset and the most interesting is that it is a diuretic. I am thinking that you have come across a product to try for incontinent dogs that may be a great first choice over a prescription. Giving a healthy dog a diuretic especially a bully that generally has more heat problems than other dogs worries me.

    Please let me know how it goes!

    hm ive not heard this before but will ask bev @Twice about it or if she is here first and sees this she will answer. so this is an oil just like salmon oil? well every other oil is used such as flax, fish, salmon, cod, olive, and coconut so i guess this would be one more.

    Well I know its purported to work on parasites in humans as is black walnut hull and an array of others. But before you give on a daily basis or very frequently I would look at the method by which it eliminates worms. In other words by what chemical and what biological reaction it produces in the body. It may or may not then be something you want to give on a frequent basis

    I don't know about the oil but the seeds are a great, healthy treat that actually do kill intestinal parasites.
