I want to share a personal story of using Noni Fruit Leather against whip worms and other parasites in my dogs.
I have never used Heartguard or similar drugs and Noni Fruit Leather from Hawaiian Organic Noni has been a life and money saver for me. One of my German Shepherds must have eaten a rat or mouse in the yard—vet assumption—as he all of a sudden had a case of acute diarrhea with blood in his stool. I took a stool sample and went to my vet for an exam and the analysis showed that he had no parasites of any kind—the diarrhea and blood cleared up on its own in a few days. It was basically one bad poop incident that started improving right away with each subsequent stool—meaning a lot less blood. Given the otherwise normal behavior and instant improvement my vet recommended a wait-and-see-approach before spending lots of money on meds. I just added some organic pumpkin puree to firm the stool and provide additional vitamin K—a natural countermeasure to any rat poison that might have come with the rodent. But the key here is that the daily use of Noni Fruit Leather prevented the otherwise certain parasite infestation in this case. It gets even better.
I have a 3rd recent rescue—Max, who unnoticed until now apparently came from the shelter with a whip worm infestation. Not even the normal dewormers kill those—you need a special dewormer—these are nasty parasites. The other problem with whip worms is, that they are hard to kill and can survive in soil for up to seven years. So even with clearing them out of my dog, I could expect for him to re-infest himself by walking over the soil and licking his paws at some point later on. What added an additional challenge was that I have 3 dogs and need to prevent all of them from getting sick.
I had all my dogs on the regular doses of Noni Fruit Leather, but that was apparently not high enough to kill the whip worms in Max. His diagnosis was off the charts in the stool sample—at the maximum on the measurement scale, a '4'. He also needed a special dewormer to get them out—these are $100 a pop. However, I couldn’t be more thrilled that Noni Fruit Leather has protected my other two dogs from contracting it, which the vet had told me was pretty much inevitable. Both other dogs remained symptom free and for the time being I put all of them on a double dosage—2-square-inches of Noni Fruit Leather twice a day—during the whip worm treatment of Max. I never say symptoms in my other two dogs at all. Six weeks after the whip worm treatment—plus the double Noni Fruit Leather dosage—I took stool samples from all three dogs and the results showed not just that my other two dogs remained free of infestation, but also Max was 100% free of whip worms after one treatment. The vet was very surprised as normally three treatments are required—especially in such a off-the-charts investation. Now that all my dogs are healthy and Max is finally free of whip worms, I switched them all back to the regular Noni Fruit Leather regiment of 2-square-inches per dog per day and they are doing great.
So to sum this up, Noni Fruit Leather spared me dealing with two more sick dogs, which would have been an additional $600 on special dewormer treatments; helped Max get well faster, saving me an additional $200 in special dewormer treatments and spares me from buying the special monthly whip worm preventative, which would be about $300 per month for my three dogs for the rest of their lives. Noni Fruit Leather is literally saving me thousands of dollars and my dogs much pain and suffering.
