Diatomaceous Earth for Dogs and Cats
We provide you with the finest food-grade Diatomaceous Earth Powder for your dog or cat. Diatomaceous earth is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one celled plants called diatoms. Our food grade diatomaceous earth comes from the finest fresh water deposits, to offer you the best quality diatomaceous earth. Food grade diatomaceous earth meets very strict regulations in terms of crystalline silica (must be less that 1%) and heavy metal content, making it safe for animals to consume.
Diatomaceous Earth kills insects by PHYSICAL action---not chemical. Its fine, fossilized structure scratches the waxy outer coating of fleas and other insects so they dehydrate and die. Because the DE particle is so small--it is not harmful to people and pets. It is a simple mineral---silica. As an added bonus Diatomaceous Earth has a negative charge. This allows it to act as an effective detoxifier since heavy metals, drug residues, and other pollutants, including radioactive ions, have a positive charge. The diatomaceous earth will attract those positively-charged toxic molecules like a magnet and allow them to be removed by the body efficiently through the colon. It also is an effective silica supplement as this important mineral will be absorbed and utilized by the body to support your pet's skin, nail and coat health.
Available in a 12 oz resealable pouch.
Diatomaceous Earth Benefits
Kills fleas, ticks and worms by physical action, making it an effective parasite control both externally and internally and a natural alternative to chemical products.
Helps remove drug residue for those animals that have been on medications for years.
Helps remove heavy metals left in the body from vaccinations.
Silica is absorbed into the blood stream leading to healthier skin, coat, nails, teeth and joints. It also helps to destroy bad fats helping to lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
Promotes regular bowel movements leading to a healthier colon. A clean healthy colon keeps away polyps, cancers, and ulcers.
Helps promote increased overall health and energy. This is most likely a result of all the food and nutrients that are being better absorbed into the blood stream due to a cleaner and more efficient digestive tract.
