Diatomaceous Earth for Pets
First, let's begin by saying DE Food Grade is Safe for Pets!
Silicon dioxide is diatomaceous earth, a naturally-occurring material
composed of the shells of minute, single-celled algae. Silica gel is an
amorphous form of silicon dioxide. Both employ a physical mode of action
to control insects. They are abrasive and act as desiccants, removing the
oily, protective film that covers insects' bodies, causing them to dry out and
It kills by physical action, not chemical. The tiny diatoms scratch off the insect's waxy coating, and dehydrate it. Which makes it great for fleas and ticks!
HI DEandMe...We are so happy that we tried this in our downstairs laundry room. Tried for ten years to rid ourselves of spiders with no avail until we sprinkled some DE around baseboards. NO more spiders!! If I even see one, it is a dead one. So grateful....Thank you

Veterinary Naturopaths Drs. Kim Bloomer & Jeannie Thomason,
hosts of the online radio show, Animal Talk Naturally. This what
they have to say about D E... "Our work is based on natural,
preventive care for animals, so of course we are always on the
lookout for good, quality NATURAL products to help our clients
and our listening audience that won't break the bank." "We have
long been proponents of FOOD-GRADE Diatomaceous Earth as a natural pest control for both external and
internal use in animals...the high quality and affordability of
DE in the Permaguard product that we look for in our own
personal use as well as for our clients."
Food Grade DE: the Natural Flea Control Powder, Ticks, Ear Mites and spiders! Plus.. it is also a natural organic wormer.
According to NPIC, Diatomaceous earth is not poisonous; it does not have to be eaten in order to be effective. Diatomaceous earth causes insects to dry out and die by absorbing the oils and fats from the cuticle of the insect's exoskeleton. Its sharp edges are abrasive, speeding up the process. It remains effective as long as it is kept dry and undisturbed.
DE is a health supplement for farm pets and animals. As pets get older, they often get sore hips and stiff, painful joints. Diatomaceous Earth in your pet's daily diet will reduce arthritic inflammation. Following is recommended daily doses for Dogs and Cats as an organic wormer - (complete worming can take up to a month to be safe).. Reported great results with sore and painful hips and joints, and even a fuller, healthier shiny coat as a regular daily supplement.

What Doctors are SayingAgencies have stated that diatomaceous earth is unlikely to affect birds, fish, or other wildlife in a harmful way.
Precautions - You should avoid allowing DE to spread through the air where it can be inhaled. It can cause lung irritation in those with asthma or lung disease. DE should always be stored in an airtight container to prevent moisture from degrading the material.
