Pet Deworming Naturally – using Pet Feed Grade Diatomaceous Earth!
For Pet Deworming, a large portion of people immediately turn to chemicals, under the assumption that something toxic is needed to kill parasites. Unfortunately, the chemicals are also somewhat toxic to the pets themselves, and should be avoided.
Using a natural substance, cats and dogs can be more effectively dewormed, at any age, and without risks. Diatomaceous Earth is a white powder made from fossilized diatoms, a type of algae. It is a fine, abrasive powder (like baking soda) that absorbs large amounts of water. When the powder touches parasites, its microscopic, razor-like edges grate against them and dehydrate them simultaneously. This means that it will likely destroy even blood-borne parasites.
We suggest following the pet deworming regimen for 10-15 days. During this time, animals will usually drink more, due to the dehydrating effect of the diatomaceous earth. Only purchase pet feed grade diatomaceous earth. Otherwise it may contain harmful chemical impurities.
Pet Feed Grade Diatomaceous Earth for Natural De-Worming and Prevention of Parasites in Pets is available with Urbanns. Feed grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE) has many uses and excellent health benefits for animals. DE particles have tiny, razor-sharp edges that produce invisible cuts on the exoskeleton of insects and parasites when they come into contact with them. Internal feeding of DE helps eliminate most internal worms, including round worms, pin worms, tapeworms, pinworms, hookworms, etc. It is also a good deodorizer; it helps reduce the fecal odor when fed daily and reduces fly loads.
