Exactly what is Diatomaceous Earth for Pet Families and why do we need it? Let me introduce you to this simple and key ingredient sourced right here in Canada called Diatomaceous Earth.
While it may be hard to pronounce, DE is simple to use and incredibly effective. It kills fleas and ticks at any life stage from your pet and home without using harsh chemicals.
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is made from the fossilized shells of diatoms, an ancient kind of algae. As time passed, these microscopic shells, consisting mostly of the mineral silica, accumulated in freshwater lake beds and formed huge silica deposits. When mined and ground into powder, it becomes what we call diatomaceous earth. This chalk-like powder is microscopically very hard, coarse, and absorbent, which makes it useful for many things.DiatomaceousEarth.com
Diatomaceous Earth is organic, natural and safe for cats even with daily grooming and incidental ingestion from use on their coats or around your home. And because of this, it’s one of the key ingredients in my natural Dry Shampoo for Dogs and Cats.
DE in its purest form is organic and safe to ingest and use around your home, children, and pets. This kind of DE meets the Food Chemicals Codex requirements to be called food grade. Because of its high silica content and trace minerals, people often take food grade DE as a health supplement. Food grade DE also offers similar benefits for animals.DiatomaceousEarth.com
