Additional Information


Here's how to use it against fleas for pets:

The massage should be strong enough for you to come into contact with the skin and repeated every 2 or 3 weeks, unless the the animal does not get wet - in that case you must reapply. Avoid powder to get into the eyes of the dog and of the person. It should also be applied in areas where the animal usually sleep, and after two days take it off with a cloth (so a minimum of residual remains, avoid the vacuum that could clog).

Or use TripleSure, which is perhaps the most convenient and practical.


For protection against insects and parasites, rub the powder into the animal's fur, sprinkle on their bedding, etc.

Add to wet food 1 teaspoon (5 grams) for cats and very small dogs. For kittens only 1 gram per day. For larger sizes of dogs use from 2 teaspoons to 2 tablespoons for large dogs. Not suitable for pets with kidney problems. Do not give it to animals with kidney problems.

Human Use:

Food grade diatomaceous earth is a great source of silica. Take 1 -2 teaspoons per day, mixed with liquid. Diatomaceous earth will not dissolve, stir well to prevent settling and best taken in the morning.
At home: Use against house insects (ants, cockroaches, silverfish, bed bugs, flies, fleas, ticks, etc.). Sprinkle the area which you suspect is infested.


Horses, cows, pigs, sheep, rabbits, chickens, etc., will benefit from the use of DE. Add DE to animal feed to expel parasites. DE acts as a natural mineral supplement. It will also reduce the odour in barns from excrement and prevent larvae from forming in the manure. For smaller farm animals (pigs, sheep, goats), add about 12g (0.5oz) to their feed. For larger animals (cows, horses), add 25-50g of DE to feed, once a day. For poultry and small animals kept in large numbers add 2% of DE to the food.


To counter this you may want to add the powder to water in a spray bottle. This damps the powder and as it dries out where it has been sprayed, it goes to work. For chickens, water seems to access more places than the dry powder.

Special Precautions for Polish Chickens. These have a dense 'helmet' of feathers on their heads which hold DE powder and systematically drop it into the eyes. IF DE does go directly into the eyes you may notice the chicken keeps its eyes closed and appears weak and unhappy; this works very quickly - wash the eyes by inserting drops of clean pre-boiled, cooled water or sterilised milk. (Pasteurised milk carries bacteria - sterilised doesn't). Chickens love to drink this too.

Excellent for red mite protection/eradication. Puff into the bedding/feathers but especially onto the perch ends above and below where red mite hide in the day and then come out at night to infest the chicken while asleep. Puff some into the egg box so that when they sit to lay, their vents come into contact with the DE. (I put two small pinches of DE in the food cup of each of my little bantam chickens and mix with their food alongside oyster shell grit for strong egg shells). Eggs and milk, meat, etc., is unaffected in taste by the animal consuming DE.

Plants & Vegetables:

Natural plant protection against insects: DE is the organic way of controlling insects in the garden, greenhouse, orchard, and other places. Use it for control of slugs, whitefly, beetles, mites, grasshoppers, etc. For use in the greenhouse or outdoors on fruits, vegetables, flowers, grains and grass - up to and including the day of harvest. Ensure coverage over the entire plant, including under the leaves.

For young plants, 2 lbs (0.75kg) per acre may be adequate.

For larger plants, 5 lbs (1.8kg) per acre may be enough. Add 7 lbs (2.6kg) of DE to each ton of grain and mix well to kill bugs in the grain. Always wear a protective mask over the face and ensure your eyes are covered to avoid irritation of the eyes and protect the lungs - as with all very fine powders/dust.

Cleaning method:

Transfer with a spoon the product in a container to avoid raising dust. If you intend to work with large amounts we suggest the use of protective masks. Shake the dust on the plants: the best time to do it is early in the morning or evening when the plants are wet with dew. The humidity helps the powder to stick on the plants, but the effect starts after the plant dries, leaving as a powder coating. The powder can be easily washed before consumption of vegetables.

Apply the dust on the ground around the plants so many types of insects can not even access the plant.
To keep away snails put a circle of product around the base of the plant.

Spray the plants with water if the dew is not available and wait until the excess water drip from the plants and then shake the dust on the plants moist.

Wet method:

Add 16 grams of product per liter of water, close the container and shake until the powder dissolves. Fill a spray mixture and spray the plants until they are wet, but not dripping. Spray under the leaves and also if you want all parts of the plant. Allow the plant to dry until you see a thin coating of dust. This method also works well in windy conditions. In order to avoid clogging up the spray, after the application fill it with clean water and spray out the remaining dust.

Note: All the above is intended purely for your information and should not be treated as medical advice. Please do not resort to self-treatment. Consult a doctor if feeling unwell. We do not diagnose or prescribe any treatments. People are recorded as using DE to kill internal parasites in themselves and it seems to be quite popular among them, but we cannot advise this use.

Selection and Mission Statement

Fitopets Selection and Mission Statement:

We strive to offer only the best of the best products worldwide. Most online shops always state the same:”We have the best, most natural products!”, so what makes us different?

Please check our Beyond Natural Fitopets Selection Standard:

1) our selection of supplements are searched and verified by our Naturopaths, which are the most appassionate professionals in natural and organic ingredients. Naturopaths love herbs and whatever no side effect treatments Mother Nature has to offer. They study ingredients with passion. It’s connnected with their life mission, with their soul, therefore it’s effortless and not money driven.

2) We only choose brands that have high ethic values, which invest a lot in research and in sourcing the purest ingredients. We also have our ways of “verifying” the company owner or director – if he/she has whatever attitude we do not feel in alignment with our core values, we will not sell his products, even if they are very good. We believe that every aspect of a company is an extension of the people who own it and who manage it, therefore also the products.

3) we avoid as much as possible any synthetic ingredient that can be harmful or toxic to our bodies. We sell products free of GMOs, synthetic substances, gluten, dairy, conservatives, stimulants, additives, synthetics perfumes, and animal testing. 99% of our products are truly natural.

In very few cases we allow, for example, a flowing agent called magnesium stearate which is present in many supplements, and is considered generally safe, when it’s not. Magnesium stearate is frequently made with low quality vegetable oils (it’s cheaper) which can be loaded with heavy metals. When we do rarely accept such product in our Fitopets Selection, it is because at this moment, we cannot find worldwide a better alternative. Better for us doesn’t mean only more natural, but it also has to produce results.

When we sell a product with magnesium stearate, we ask the manufacturer the heavy metal lab analysis of the vegetable oils they use to produce magnesium stearate. If it is ok, we accept the product – this is how far we go to ensure safety to our clients.

4) we obviously cannot check personally the ingredients and the production processes of all facilities worldwide, but instead we do choose brands with GMP (Good Manufacturing Policy) certification or HACCP certification, which guarantees maximum safety and quality. Where GMP certification is not necessary, we request the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheets).

5) we always verify how does the manufacturer extract the ingredient, what is the technological process he uses, because it can downgrade the ingredient or considerably enhance it. The final result is the rate of cellular absorption of the ingredient. Everything depends on whether your cells can access and use the supplements you take, and at what percentage. If your absorption rate is low, you are literally throwing away your money through the window. We passionately focus on offering products with the highest possible absorption rate at a cellular level. 

6) we constantly verify the market in search of new products which could be superior than the ones we already sell. When we do, we frequently switch to the new product, letting go of the previous one, even if we were selling it well. That is how badly we want to offer only the best of the best, at the cost of even losing some clients, because not everyone likes changing to a new and better solution, even if vastly superior.

Another reason why we do this is because we want to minimize your “stress of choice”. Choosing between five liver cleanse products is more time consuming, than choosing the only one available. When you see that one and only product for a symptom or discomfort, you already know you’re choosing the best, and no extra search and evaluation is needed, even though we always encourage it. 

7) our Fitopets Selection is not based on trends, but on our experience we build through our free Naturopath Consultings Service. We only sell products we personally use and that we suggest to our clients, who are people. And people are not numbers.
