DE for Pets & Farm
Our Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is safe and suitable for a variety of Pets Health related needs. From dogs and cats, to lizards and birds; there are so many ways that DE can help to improve your pets health. Please read the following information to give you a head start on just some of the ways you can help your Pet using our natural and non-toxic Food grade Diatomaceous Earth. Just like people, your pets deserve to be healthy too!
DE for Dogs
Using Food Grade DE for your Dog is quite easy, as most dogs barely even notice when you add DE to their daily bowl of food. Our Diatomaceous Earth mixes very well in wet food, and can also be sprinkled over dry food, or even mixed into water. The immediate benefits for your dog will be improved digestion, reduction and elimination of internal parasites like worms and other digestive mites, improved shine in fur and coat with stronger nails and teeth (from amorphous silica), and an overall improved metabolism and immune system.
DE for Cats
There are several excellent ways to improve health for your cat using our DE. The most common way is to reduce and eliminate odour and excess moisture in your cats litter box. Diatomaceous Earth is an impressive deodourizer, especially when it is generously mixed into the cat litter before use. The DE will also help the used litter to clump and stick together for easier cleaning. Adding food grade DE to your cat's diet is also quite beneficial because it can reduce and eliminate internal parasites like worms and other digestive mites. And just like dogs, it will increase the strength of their claws and improve the natural shine in their fur.
DE for Rodents
Our DE can also be used as a deodourizer and absorbent in rodent bedding. It will dramatically reduce the odours created by urine and droppings, it will also impressively absorb moisture where it is applied, making cleaning and disposing waste easier and more efficient. DE can also be added to the diet of Rabbits or other livestock, including all rodent pets (hamsters, gerbils, rats, guinea pigs, ferrets, hedgehogs etc) which will reduce and eliminate internal parasites like worms or digestive mites, and improve the natural shine in fur and strength of nails and claws.
DE for Birds and Reptiles
Our DE is safe to use as an additional absorbent, mixed into the litter or bedding for your bird or reptile pets. Of course for Chickens this is a very popular product to control moisture and odour in the barn stalls and internal parasites in their digestion. Reptiles and tropical birds may be more sensitive to dry dust in the air (DE is a very fine dust that often is suspended in the air before settling) so we recommend using sparingly with tropical birds and reptiles.
Our Diatomaceous Earth is commonly used as a deordourizer and a feed additive, where it can be spread and applied in a livestock stall or barn surroundings to reduce molding and reduce moisture created from manure. Mixing our DE into your feed and silos also acts as an inert carrier, reducing mold and other mites that might live in grain silos or other food storage bins.
We recommend adding our Diatomaceous Earth to your feed and silos, to increase your animals health and reduce your feed costs, particularly reducing waste that can result from mold and other unwanted moisture. In general practice, adding our food grade DE to your livestock's diet in an amount that is 1-2% of the animals total diet will bring about the best possible results.
Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth has been recognized for a long time as a feed additive for livestock of all kinds. It acts as an anti-caking agent with it extremely high absorbency, and also acts as a de-wormer for many livestock. Because of it's high silica (amorphous) content, our Food Grade DE will bring out a healthy shine in your livestock's fur and coats, as well as giving them stronger hooves and nails/claws.
