    I've heard of people buying it at their local feed store. I can't buy DE at my feed store but I can buy Stall Dry which is a mixture of bentonite clay and DE that people use in horse stalls and it works really well. I want to say that a product called Red Lake Earth is the same thing as stall dry but I'm not sure. You may also be able to find a product called Sweet PDZ which does the same thing. There is a website for Sweet PDZ and I really wanted to try it but I can't get at any of our local stores.
