Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous Earth

Care for your furry loved-ones organically with Big Guy, Littles World Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade Powder.  Diatomaceous earth, or DE for short, is one of nature's greatest solutions for overall pet health.

What is DE?
Diatomaceous Earth is a non-toxic, safe substance made up from crushed fossils of tiny freshwater organisms and marine life called diatoms, an ancient form of algae.  Crushed to a very fine powder and observed through a microscope, the particles resemble microscopic bits of broken glass. These sharp edges are abrasive and breakdown
the exoskeletons of the bugs and parasites it comes in contact with.  Essentially causing them to dry out and die while remaining completely harmless to animals.

In dogs, DE can be used as a preventative to lessen the parasite load to help control and kill internal parasites such as roundworms, whipworms, pinworms, and hookworms.  DE is said to be less effective on tapeworms. The use of DE is most effective when used over a long period of time when mixed with food.  Fed for 30 days to kill any new eggs that have hatched.

Like most powdered supplements, DE is easily added to food. Just add a sprinkle (no more than 1/2 teaspoon for under 50lbs) to your pet's food each day to see the benefits.  It can be incorporated into any type of diet but will be more palatable if it's added to wet food or broth. It has a somewhat chalky taste, so when added to kibble,
it might not be the most appetizing supplement.


Food grade diatomaceous earth is a fine powder. If you have a sensitivity to dust, use an approved respirator and goggles whenever you plan to apply large amounts.
