Our best friends come in all shapes and sizes. Protect them with Diatomaceous Earth. When lightly rubbed into their coats or dusted on their premises, it is very effective against fleas, ticks, lice, and other pests on pet dogs, cats, and birds. It can also be used as an organic wormer and will kill any worms or parasites the pets may have. When using as a de-wormer, mix the Diatomaceous Earth into their food as follows:
  • Large Cats - 1 teaspoon
  • Kittens - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Dogs 100 lbs + - 1-2  tablespoons
  • Dogs 50 - 100lbs - 1 tablespoon
  • Dogs Under 50 lbs - 1 teaspoon
  • Mini dogs - 1/2 teaspoon
As pets get older, they also get sore joints. With Diatomaceous Earth in their diet they will feel better.  Apply to moist kennel areas to reduce odors, dry the area, and prevent pest breeding.  Deodorizing and absorption are natural functions of DE, so add to kitty litter to absorb odors and keep the litter box drier.
Veterinary naturopaths Drs. Kim Bloomer & Jeannie Thomason, hosts of the
online radio show, Animal Talk Naturally , have this to say about our Permaguard
Diatomaceous Earth:
"Our work is based on natural, preventive care for animals so of course we
are always on the lookout for good, quality NATURAL products to help our
clients and our listening audience that won't break the bank. We've long
been proponents of FOOD-grade diatomaceous earth as a natural pest control
for both external and internal use in animals. Earth Works Health has
provided both the high quality and affordability of DE in their Permaguard
product that we look for in our own personal use as well as for our clients."

All livestock:
Horses, Cows, Pigs, Sheep, Goats, Rabbits, Chickens and others will benefit from the use of Diatomaceous Earth. It is completely safe and nontoxic.
