Why Diatomaceous Earth for pets?
Parasites live in an animal’s intestinal tract, causing nutritional problems and physical irritation, affecting the health condition and attitude of your pet. Using natural pet remedies for worms and parasites is a great way to protect pets from such harmful organisms, without the negative side effects of chemical based pesticide worm medicines.
Diatomaceous earth is derived from a naturally-formed sedimentary mineral rock, containing the remains of diatoms, or oceanic unicellular algae in the form of a thick, white, siliceous powder. It has numerous health benefits and is often used to support body cleansing and to eliminate intestinal organisms like worms. Research also suggests that it helps to promote normal blood lipids and detox toxic metals from the body. In addition, diatomaceous earth is a very rich source of silica an important trace mineral required for healthy tendons, cartilage, blood vessels, and bones.

Helpful tips to keep your pets worm-free:
- Make sure you offer a healthy diet – (preferably organic) of high quality cat or dog food. (Try Vondi’s natural cooked food or DoggoBone Active Raw Food, both available from the Feelgood Health shop in Westlake, Cape Town)
- Because certain worms can be transmitted from animals to humans it is important that your pets are de-wormed regularly. Depending on your pet’s risk of infection; an indoor cat has less likelihood of getting a parasite infection than a dog that regularly walks in the park and interacts with other dogs, you will need to determine the best de-worming protocol. De-worm your low risk pet once a year but repeat de-worming every 3 months in high risk pets. It is always advisable to de-worm your pet after a stay at the kennels or cattery. use a natural de-worming medicine like Feelgood Pets Worm Dr and supplement with Vondi’s Diatomaceous Earth.
- Discourage your pets from licking you and your family, this is one way that worm segments and worm eggs can be transmitted to you.
- Clean up all dog poop everyday and keep your cat’s litter tray clean.
- Remember to take ‘poop packets’ with you when you take your dog out for a walk. Apart from the health risk that unpicked up poop poses, it’s also a real shame to get dog poop on your shoes!!
