How Diatomaceous Earth Works on your animals
First, the diatom is eaten by a dog, cat, horse, etc. As it travels through the stench in the bowels of these animals, it works of killing internal parasites and larvae. Then it passes through with the animal’s manure, where it continues to kill fly larvae and eventually, it gets dumped into mulch where once again, it continues to nourish the earth with its composition of trace minerals.
Resistance is not likely since it is the physical and not chemical properties of Diatomaceous Earth that make it an effective insecticide.
That’s the Parasite side of Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade Mineral, there is also the mineral side of it.
Adding Diatomaceous Earth to your animals diet will add essential minerals and vitamins to their diet, Diatomaceous Earth will replenish the silica in your animals bones, joints and in return prevent less damage to your animal’s body. Saving you time and money spent at the vet.
