CANINE VITALITY NATURAL FLEA POWDER
- L8ve100% natural food grade diatomaceous earth and 100% Australian grown pure neem powder blended. Diatomaceous earth, sometimes referred to as “DE,” is a natural substance that is actually created from the remains of diatoms, microscopic water plants that are like algae. It contains such minerals as silicon, calcium, sodium, and magnesium. It has a consistency similar to talcum powder. This is a remarkable substance that is a desiccant – it actually dries out the waxy outer layer of fleas so they dehydrate and eventually die. As an added benefit, diatomaceous earth can eliminate other insects.
Hailing from India, NEEM powder (from the bark and leaves of the Neem tree) is an effective method of killing and repelling fleas (and other insects). Modern research studies have discovered that it contains both alkaloids and liminoids, each with an array of medicinal properties. For instance, oneliminoid (azadirachitin) has been found to be 95% effective when used as a pesticide and insecticide. Neem helps repel fleas, ticks, flies, mites and lice. Neem also has many moisturizing properties and helps get rid of excess dryness and scaling. It helps soothe irritated skin. The anti-bacterial properties of neem prevent development of any further skin infection. Because Diatomaceous Earth can by very drying, Neem helps protect your pet from excess dry skin.
This powder can be applied daily, weekly or monthly depending on your situation. Rubbing or dusting through the coat is the best way. As the DE powder can be a little irritating to the lungs it is best not directly inhaled, but otherwise, is a safe natural alternative to chemical products and is suitable for dogs and cats- best to avoid the face area in general.
