Has anyone tried diatomatious earth (food grade) externally and internally on your greys? It's safe for animals (and people) and can be used for worms, fleas, digestive health and more. Greys are so sensitive, so i am concerned to try it, but i prefer holistic options like this.

I have used food grade diatomaceous earth on my greyhounds without any ill effects and know several other people who have as well. It's messy to apply so do it outside and it's a good idea to wear a mask if you're dusting in on your rugs inside so as not to inhale a lot of the dust.

Thanks! Have you tried feeding it to them also? They claim this very healthy for them.

 

I have not but I know people personally who have and swear by it.

I have used food grade diatomaceous earth for my dogs for years for parasite control. It works really well - it's natural and inexpensive. The adoption group I work with also uses it for all the new dogs and we have had excellent results. Just mix it in with feedings - easy to use.
