Diatomite is the fossilized skeletal remains of microscopic single-celled aquatic plants known as diatoms (algae). A crystal shell protects these tiny organisms. When the organisms die, the shells pile up on the bottom of oceans and lakes to form deposits. These deposits are then mined from underwater beds or from ancient, dried lake bottoms. Once they have been mined, they can be milled or processed for a variety of uses.
How can it help your dog?
It has microscopic razor-sharp edges, which are easily picked up by the tiny hairs on the bodies of most insects. It scratches through their protective wax layers and as they absorb it the insects lose water rapidly, dehydrate and die.
DE has no chemical toxicity and is safe for internal use. It is an extremely effective way to detox your dog’s internal system.
