    A while ago someone posted an interesting and informative article on food quality DE. It even listed quantities to give to pets and people. I can't find it anywhere. Does anyone know where I can find it on this site - or do you have link ? thank you!![​IMG]

    Mapa, I looked back and in my posts I found this. The website lists all the good things about DE for humans and animals. Take a look.....

    Roosmom checkout Greyfields opinion not withstanding, I have posted articles of controlled groups in zoos in the United States that indicate it does control internal paracites.

    I recently purchased DE food grade for my chickens because a friend recommended it for parasites. Did not know much about it. Read the info on the links..Thank you so much for posting. Did not know it was good for fleas too.
    My dog has brought fleas into my multiple cat household. (indoor cats). Was using Frontline, but ran out. It is so expensive, (was online comparing prices to order more) and I would rather use a natural method.
    There will be a major dusting party tomorrow.
    Again, thank you! [​IMG]
