I have read that pumpkin seeds dont actually kill parasites but actually just stuns them (in humans at least)

Do you think it would be a system over load if I gave them pumpkin seeds with wormer?

no, it's very hard to overload with natural dewormers. from what I've read, pumpkin seeds help expel the worms (i.e. scrape them out of the intenstines).

Different types of wormers work in different ways. I personally don't think that feeding them the pumpkin seeds when you worm them would be bad as long as the other parts of their feed routines stayed the same. It would be like giving them pine trees when you worm them (the pine is high in tannins that are supposed to help with the worms). However I have not done this before, so is there anyone with more experience with pumpkin seeds that could chime in?
