Diatomaceous Earth for Pets
First, let's begin by saying DE Food Grade is Safe for Pets!
Silicon dioxide is diatomaceous earth, a
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 DEfoodgrade...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

When using it daily as a pet food supplement or as a safe wormer. Mix Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth with pet food.
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
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.

Get rid of Pests
Most asked question we get is..."will it kill ants"?
Answer, YES! And if you sprinkle some around the baseboard
in your home or outside it will also do away with dreaded
spiders! Works Great on both! According to NPIC
there are currently over 150 products registered for use
inside and outside of buildings, farms, gardens, and pet
kennels. Diatomaceous earth products are registered for use
against bed bugs, cockroaches, crickets, fleas, ticks,
spiders, and many other pests.
Diatomaceous earth has been used as a de-wormer for livestock for many years. It can cleanse and detoxify the digestive system when taken internally.

Flea and tick control
For your chickens or farm animals
Better egg production, stronger eggs, and reduces overall animal stress
When chickens were fed a diet that contained less silicon dioxide than normal, their bone formation was harmed. This suggests that silicon dioxide plays an important role in bone formation.
Diatomaceous earth is made of silicon dioxide!
Added to livestock waters, will prevent algae from growing
Stimulates basic metabolism
Converts feed better
Reduces the desire to lick soil Scouring or diarrhea: when fed it seems to act as a material that draws both virus and bacteria out of the body and solidifies the stool
Reduces odor and moisture in barns and stalls Better coat and hoof condition
Keeps fly larvae from developing in manure, noticeably reducing the fly population
Reduces annual vet bills--decreased mortality In cattle: decreased mastitis Dairy cattle: Increased milk production
Kills parasites without chemicals
DE is natural and MUCH cheaper!
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.
Said it before and will say it again,, use common sense. You wouldn't go around breathing in flour dust or baby powder dust!

The question we get asked most?
Great questions! And here are the answers.
Perma-Guard Fossil Shell Flour (what we sell) is Pure Freshwater Diatomaceous Earth. OMRI listed for organic use.
It is of the highest quality available, being greater than 89% amorphous silica and less than .5% crystalline silica.
For humans, start out with a teaspoon in water, juice or
morning shake. DE will start cleaning the toxins from your
body so drink plenty of water. It's like when you go get a
massage, they will tell you to drink lots of water to flush
the toxins that were released from the massage. After a
week start taking between 1 heaping teaspoon to 2
level tablespoons a day....every day!
