Pet and Livestock Feed Supplement*

DE on spoon


Food grade diatomite can be used for both animals and humans.

Our supplement product is made from raw, natural, fresh water diatoms and has food grade particles containing more than 94% Silica.  DE taken as a supplement has many reported health benefits and is widely used by naturopaths, health practitioners, vets and alike.  Please read our pages on supplement pages on how DE can help you and your animals achieve better health.

DE has many dietary uses for pets and livestock.  Added daily to your animals diet (at the feed rates recommended below) the hard and sharp honeycombs of the DE lacerate internal worms causing them to release their grip on intestinal walls and get passed.  This presence of DE in their stools will also discourage flies and insects around your property.

Made up from more than 94% amorphous silica DEBug contains 15 essential trace minerals including phosphorous, selenium, calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc and iron. Silica is crucial to bones, tendons, skin, cartilage and blood vessels and existss in the blood stream and vital organs.  Mixed with your pets and livestock feed it will help to:

  • Promotes better health, less stress and more vitality
  • Digestive aid, improving stool health and gut problems
  • Stimulates basic metabolism
  • Better feed conversion, improving weight gain, health and productivity
  • Promotes healthier coats, hair, skin, hooves, nails and feathers
  • Cost effective health supplement, helping to reduce vet bills.  
  • Negatively charged DE particles help to absorb heavy metals, bacteria, pesticides, drug residues and E-Coli (that are positively charged).

Unfortunately, the ACVM Act (Agricultural Compounds and Veterinary Medicines) has classified DEBug as a Veterinary Medicine.  However, the agricultural chemical use of diatomaceous earth has been proposed to be put forward as an exempt category at the next Regulation change. In the meantime, the ACVM Group will be working on a modified ACVM registration type for this kind of situation with very limited information requirements.  Pending registration we are required to remove meaningful applications and information from our website.
