Benefits for Pets
First, let's begin by saying Diatomaceous Earth 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! 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. Some products can also be used directly on dogs and cats. Diatomaceous earth products are registered for use against bed bugs, cockroaches, crickets, fleas, ticks, spiders, and many other pests.
When using it daily as a pet food supplement or as a safe wormer. Mix Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth with pet food.

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.
