Food-grade diatomaceous earth isn’t just safe for pets: you can safely ingest it as well! So if you like being extra careful about what you give your pet, there’s nothing wrong using Daisey Fresh DE with Calcium Bentinite.
If you’re feeding diatomaceous earth to your pet, then you should feed the animal for at least 30 days. This will destroy adult worms while also targeting hatchling eggs and smaller worms throughout the lungs and stomach.
In addition to targeting pests and critters, there’s also some evidence that diatomaceous earth can absorb methyl mercury, e-coli, endotoxins, viruses, organophosphate pesticide residues, drug residues, and the bacteria created by intestinal infections. This can make it an effective overall cleanser for your pet.
The smells that come from the litter box are not the nicest of scents to have wafting around the house. Luckily, you can also get rid of the kitty litter smell by adding diatomaceous earth to the litter box. DE will will absorb moisture in the box and eliminate the smell; it will also repel any worms, larvae, or parasites in the litter box.
Daisey Fresh DE carries a negative ionic charge. This study suggests it helps to reduce parasites in chickens, and many experts believe this is due to its negative charge and cylindrical shape. The thinking behind this is that positively charged bacteria and parasites (plus some viruses) may be attracted to it like magnets are attracted to one another. Because of its shape, the pathogens get trapped in the center and carried out of the body.
If you’re using Daisey Fresh DE externally to control parasites, simply rub the diatomaceous earth powder into your dog’s coat to control fleas while also sprinkling it on the bedding. You should not have to wear a dust mask when shaking the Daisey Fresh DE with Bentonite clay because our powder is heavier than those other brands and you will not need to use a mask to protect yourself.
