Diatomaceous Earth Powder is made of tiny fossilized diatoms which are a healthy natural supplement for pets. Diatomaceous Earth can be used to aid in flea and worm control of dogs and cats and/or as a gut health supplement.
For managing fleas without pharmaceutical treatment, just distribute the powder in your home environment (carpet is a good place to start). When fleas come into contact with Diatomaceous Earth, the sharp points of the diatoms stick to the flea and abrasively rub into the epi-cuticle, ultimately killing them. We don't recommend rubbing this into your cat or dogs coat, the fine dust may be inhaled and cause irritation of the airways.
For managing worms without pharmaceutical treatment, feed daily as a small portion in their food. The hard and sharp honeycombs of the diatoms will lacerate the worms of the gut and cause them to release their grip on the intestinal walls so they can be passed out.
Additionally when ingested, Diatomaceous Earth can cleanse the colon and intestinal passages, removing excess mucous and bad bacterial build-ups. This will improve digestibility of nutrients in the gut, a good detox to consider if your animal is struggling with their digestion despite probiotic support.
We encourage you to chat with us about using this supplement if you aren't sure this is suitable for your animal, or refer to the Green Trading Website.
