When added into your pet’s feed on a daily basis, whether it’s your guinea pig, cat, kitten, pup, rabbit, sheep or goats, Diatomaceous Earth can help with digestive & gut issues. The high level of silica & the iron, calcium & magnesium in the Diatomaceous Earth assists with strong hair & fur growth, healthy teeth & strong bones.
How Does It work?
The purity of this product and the high percentage of mineral silica promotes the growth of strong hair, skin and nails. Silica can also help to support and maintain strong bones and teeth by playing a role in the metabolism of calcium in the bones. The mineral silica helps improve circulation, stimulating blood flow to the scalp and is an important component of your pet’s skin’s connective tissues helping skin become firm. Silica rich foods have diminished over the years in their natural levels due to our modern farming techniques. Our Ancient Earth DE can raise the silica levels naturally.
The Diatomaceous Earth tiny particles have microscopic sharp edges which sweep like a broom through the digestive tract & gut when consumed.
