Diatomaceaous Earth for Pets

DE is a natural pest control to use around your home, but you can also use it to treat your pets for fleas.

Fleas are blood-sucking parasites which live outside, in our homes, and on our pets. The good thing, though, is that fleas really don't like DE.

As with other insects and arachnids, DE is a natural insecticide that is safe to use around your pets and family members.

Always seek advice from a veterinarian when an animal is ill

For Cats and Dogs

While it's more common to use Diatomaceous Earth as a flea prevention, many people have added small amounts of DE to their pet's diet. There a numerous benefits a pet can receive from a consistent dosage of DE. 

DE is largely made up of amorphous silica, but it also contains calcium, magnesium, titanium dioxide, gallium, sodium and other trace minerals. Keep in mind that there are different grades of diatomaceous earth, so make sure you purchase food grade diatomaceous earth for your pet.

The instructions below are on how to feed your cat DE.

The type of food you are giving your cat will also affect the way to give it to them.

Wet Food:

Cats may be skeptical of their dry cat food if it has a white powder on it, that's why we  suggest this method for adding DE to your cat's food.
