Benefits of Diatomaceous Earth for Cats
Cats, can be just as playful as dogs which why we want to make sure they stay healthy and happy and our Fine Grade Diatomaceous Earth can help with that!
Mix Fine Diatomaceous Earth into your Cat’s food
Mixing Fine Diatomaceous Earth or DE for short, into your cat’s food is a natural way to help prevent fleas from making themselves at home in your cat's coat. Diatomaceous Earth helps support their immune system, digestion and because Diatomaceous Earth is a form of silica it supports strong nails, skin and coat. The best results are when your cat is consistently eating the DE feed mixture.
DE is also known to help with worm issues in cats as well as providing them a boost of minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
The recommended ratio for mixing Fine Diatomaceous Earth into your pets feed:
We recommend adding 2% of the weight of your cat's food. For example, your dog might eat 100 grams dry food and 50 grams wet food, the Diatomaceous Earth to be added would be 2% of 150 grams which is 3 grams. We recommend only feed DE to kittens that are eating solid foods. Please be careful not to breath in the power as like most minerals they can be potentially harmful once inhaled.
If you feed your cat wet food:
In a dish, simply mix the measured amount of DE into the portion of wet food.
If you feed your cat dry food:
Either in a dish, simply mix the measured amount of Diatomaceous Earth into the portion of dry food or alternatively you can when you buy a new bag of dry food calculate 2% of the bags weight and add the correct amount of DE to the entire bag. Be sure to shake the bag well to ensure the Diatomaceous Earth is evenly spread. Repeat this with every new food bag. By adding DE to the bag, you get the added bonus that insects like ants and weevils that can get into the food are deterred.
Every time you go to feed your cat be sure to shake the bag as the DE will settle at the bottom of the bag with time. Please be careful not to inhale the powder as like most minerals they can be potentially harmful once inhaled.
When using DE we recommend wearing a protective mask for your own safety and well being.
