Kanex – To Assist in Natural Worm Preventative in Dogs


Kanex comprises of 50% Dulse and 50% crushed, organic Stryian pumpkin seeds. It is expected to be an effective worm preventative.

Dulse (Palamaria palmata) is a red seaweed common in Irish waters. Traditionally, it has been used as an anti-helminthic due to its high levels of kainic acid which studies show is a potent antihelminthic (shuts down egg growth).

Pumpkin seeds are an effective anti-helminthic too, proven in studies to be as effective as Panacur (contains Fenbendazole), the most common chemical anti-helminthic used in pets. It works by reducing adult worm motility.

Kanex comes with a money-back guarantee. If your dog registers positive for any gut worm whilst on their correct dose of Kanex (verified by proof of purchase) via ANY FAECAL WORM EGG COUNT PROVIDER, we will instantly and without quibble refund the cost of your Kanex purchase (value 150g pouch only, €22) to cover the cost of your failed worm count. That’s how confident we are.

We recommend you get two worm counts a year for your dog.

A NOTE ON LUNGWORM: Kanex is expected to be very effective at gut worm prevention. Lung worm is another matter. As this worm must be ingested first, passing through the intestinal tract, it is expected regular use of Kanex will help to impede infection while they are in the gut. However, once in the lungs, we have no evidence that kainic acid or cucurbitacin actually works to impede their presence. Hence, a biannual faecal check is important. However, unlike gut worms where they check for eggs, it’s the larva of the lungworm they check for. This is a specialised test, called a Modified Baernann test. You must ask if they perform these.

A forever product!

4th month using this product, I will never be without it. Clear testing all the way, it had opened my eyes to the unnecessary monthly chemical worming treatments pushed on us by the vets which consistently made my girl sick and cost so much! Thank you Dog's First

Have been using Kanex for a few months (the dogs love it, which is a bonus). Just got the worm count back from Feclab (Gut worm & Lungworm) on our 2 labradors today - completely clear on both dogs! Great product!!!

On my second pack of kanex now, so much easier than grinding my own pumpkin seeds, have to do worm count on my pack, but suspect that all will be clear, great product, will definitely be continuing with it.
