What is Diatomaceous Earth?

Diatomaceous Earth is a Natural Form of Silica with many Amazing Benefits for your pets.

100% Organic Fresh Water Diamotaceous Earth is composed of the skeletal remains of millions of fossilised microscopic diatoms that once flourished as a form of golden brown aquatic algae or plankton that lived in fresh water lakes as a food source for all kinds of aquatic creatures.

As far back as the beginning of the Cenozoic Era some 65 million years ago, diatoms have existed and contributed to the build up of sediment on the ocean floor.

Fossilising over eons of time into soft powdery rock many feet thick, geological forces pushed these deposits up to the Earth’s surface.

Today, the deposits of Fossil Shell Flour that are mined and milled into a whitish powder are primarily from diatoms that lived in lakes which evolved mostly in the Miocene Epoch or younger time periods roughly 25 million years ago.

This ancient substance is truly a modern day natural treasure-a safer and simple solution to our everyday home, pet and garden needs.

Is Diatomaceous Earth harmful? No as Organic Food grade Diatomaceous Earth (Amorphous Silica) can be safely used in the home and garden around children and pets. (Unlike the Pool grade which is only suitable for filters.)

When it comes to the control of parasites on pets, diatomaceous earth move of action is mechanical. The powder is made up of particles with sharp edges which when they come into contact with the parasites pierce through their protective coat. This irritates them, dehydrates and eventually kills them. It is therefore effective on lice, ticks, fleas and mites.

When given orally to pets, it may help deworm your dog or cat. To eliminate all the life stages of the worms, you may need to feed diatomaceous earth to your dog or cat for about a month. This way even the hatching eggs will get eliminated. This remedy is however less effective in getting rid of tapeworms.

Mix diatomaceous earth powder with your pets food. Never feed it plain to your pet as this could lead to irritation in the lungs once breathed in.

You can even mix some diamotaceous earth into your cats kitty litter to help reduce the odour.

It is completely safe and nontoxic.

Some of the benefits are:

  • Natural worm control
  • Control of fleas and ticks
  • stimulates basic metabolism
  • better absorption of minerals
  • results in better coat
  • controls worms and internal parasites without chemicals
  • helps reduce overall animal stress
