Frequently asked questions

How does Verm-X work?

Verm-X works to create an environment in the gut and digestive system that is able to eradicate and expel intestinal challenges. Unlike some pharmaceutical products that act with a purging effect, Verm-X is very gentle. With the regular feeding of Verm-X this environment will stay maintained throughout the year providing constant protection. It is difficult to stop your animal from picking up challenges; the key is stopping them from settling and doing any damage.

Do herbal formulations work?

Verm-X consists of herbs that have been used for centuries as a natural way to control intestinal challenges. Prior to the 1930s there were no pharmaceuticals. There were just herbs. Verm-X has made available formulations that have stood the test of time. Naturally effective solutions that have been around for a much longer period of time than modern man-made products. Verm-X is therefore ideal for those wishing to find a natural way to address an important area of animal wellbeing.

Why can I not find any copies of your product trials on your website?

Frustratingly, we are unable to share any research or test results with you under current legislation.

For this reason we are unable to use certain information or phrases to promote Verm-X as a medicine.

What happens if my animal eats more than the recommended amount?

Animals are naturally curious with a healthy appetite, and we have heard stories of the contents of entire packets being eaten.  In these types of scenarios the animals are fine as the products are herbal and safe. Should accidents like this occur, ensure your animals have plenty of fresh water to drink and also don't be surprised if your animal has diarrhoea for a short period of time.

How do I feed Verm-X?

Verm-X comes in four different forms; a liquid, pellets, a powder and as daily treats for cats and dogs. Depending on which version you use, Verm-X can be added to food, water or, in the case of the daily treats, fed from your hand.
