I Got Worms! We Have A Natural Solution!
Your pet may be telling you or presenting signs of parasites such as, bloated belly, lack of appetite, vomiting and sporadic diarrhea. Diatomaceous Earth is a safe natural option for you to combat an infestation of parasites in your dog or cat. DE is fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by aquatic plants called diatoms.
In plain terms, the mechanics behind this is pretty simple. Diatomaceous Earth sharp edges (that are microscopic) make contact with the parasite and is able to get thru their protective outer shell that will eventually dehydrate the parasite which will cause death. Eggs of the parasite or insect is effected the same way. Note: the type of Diatomaceous Earth you want to purchase must ALWAYS be food grade.

For those internal parasites you can treat your pet by spreading the powder over their food. This should be done for a week to 10 days and will eliminate most parasites if fed daily. However, to kill the eggs you must feed for an additional 30-60 days to destroy any new hatched parasites. This should rid the body completely.
