Dr. Phillip Schable, while heading the Dept. of Poultry Sciences at Michigan State University, made a study of the European Literature on adding Diatomaceous Eath to dairy cows and made the following report:
"DE contains 15 trace minerals important to an animal’s diet. DE mixes well with all feed while guarding against insect damage. It prevents worms and keeps virus epidemics from developing. Saves albumen, destroys harmfuls acids, safeguards the stomach, improves health and growth of young animals. Causes better digestions, allowing animals to absorb a higher percentage of protein from their regular diet". MORE ON LIVESTOCK!

o Lightly work the material into the hair of the animal to remove dirt and grime. Use brush or comb to work the material down to the skin. Pay strict attention to places where the animal cannot reach, such as the scalp. Dust the ears of the animal with care. Dust the animal's bedding and areas where the animal sleeps, as well as cracks and crevices adjacent to them. Repeat once a month or as necessary.
o For animals confined to a specific area, dust the entire area with Perma-Guard to clean it and make it a more enjoyable area for your pet.
