Ozz Organic Diatomaceous Earth DE 1kg, 3kg
Ozz Organic Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is a natural worming and parasite control for roundworms, pinworms, hookworms and threadworms. It is also a natural wormer for animals, including horses, dogs, cats and chickens.
Made from the fossilised remains of tiny aquatic organisms called diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae, DE is natural silica which accumulated millennia ago in river beds and streams. It is crushed to form a powder.
How do you actually use Diatomaceous Earth (DE) with pets?
A small amount can be sprinkled on bedding, or feed directly to your dog or can (mixed with raw coconut oil). If rubbing into your pet's fur or feathers, please be careful around the eyes and mouth as it can irritate mucosa. If using internally, to be most effective, use every day for 30 days.
Dosage for internal use:
Puppies, kittens, cats and small dogs: 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon per day added to food
Medium to large dogs: 1 teaspoon per day added to food
Note for chicken keepers:
If using for chickens, I like to make it into a paste using a small amount of water. smear onto perches and other hard surfaces. A small amount can be sprinkled into the nesting box litter, too.
As with all animal powders, please always use a mask when using DE. DE dust can irritate lungs and, even the organic food grade varieties.
