Hello and welcome. I apologize that no one has responded to you sooner. Different experts come online at various times. I just logged on and saw your question. I'm sorry to hear that your dog is having this problem. When dealing with worms, you need something more than detox. You need something that will destroy the worms. Most natural worm medicines contain black walnut. That may be natural, but is slightly toxic and can have as many side effects as the worm medication you would get from your vet. If you decide to go with the natural wormer, here is a reputable source:

If you also want to detox, here is a supplement that will do that:

You may also want to consider having your vet diagnose the type of worms, treat for them, then do the detox afterward. If you have more questions, let me know in a REPLY. I hope that whatever you decide to do your dog will be fine.
