Diatomaceous Earth for Pets and Animals

Animals.jpgPets - they come in all shapes and sizes. Protect them with DE. When lightly rubbed into their coats or dusted on their premises, it is very effective against fleas, ticks, lice, and other pests on pet dogs, cats, and birds. It can also be used as an organic wormer and will kill any worms or parasites the pets may have. When using as a de-wormer, mix the DE into their food as follows:

Large Cats - 1 teaspoon

Kittens - 1/4 teaspoon

Dogs 100 lbs + - 1-2 tablespoons

Dogs 50 - 100lbs - 1 tablespoon

Dogs Under 50 lbs - 1 teaspoon

Mini dogs - 1/2 teaspoon

As pets get older, they also get sore joints. With DE in their diet they will feel better. Apply to moist kennel areas to reduce odors, dry the area, and prevent pest breeding. Deodorizing and absorption are natural functions of DE, so add to kitty litter to absorb odors and keep the litter box drier.

All livestock such as Horses, Cows, Pigs, Sheep, Goats, Rabbits, Chickens and others will benefit from the use of DE. It is completely safe and nontoxic.

Some of the benefits that have been observed:

  • Control of fleas and ticks
