Rain Rot Gone!

"Amazing rainrot solution! After Southern Oregon's first long rain storm, my 13 year old Tobiano mare ended up with a horrible case of rainrot on her entire body, legs and face. I bought Earthworks Health food grade Diatomaceous earth and applied it (using an old nylon stocking) all over the horse on a Sunday and again on Weds. All but one scab had cleared up in about 10 days!!! Hooray!!!! Could it be that the diatomaceous earth is the secret ingredient in a thrush solution too ;-) "

Rash Gone!

Our dog was wandering through some brush and came up with a red rash on her tummy. It looked to be poison ivy. So I mixed some DE with some organic apple cider vinegar and made a mud mask for her skin. She behaved very well and let the mud mask dry. She was then bathed in a lukewarm bath and in two days the rash was totally healed! Such a wonderful product. I'll always use my Diatomaceous Earth (food grade).

Great for Horses and Dogs!

I've been giving DE to my horses, dogs, husband and myself for a couple of months now. We've had a very, very wet summer here in Florida and my farrier said my horse's hooves are in great shape, not soft or chipped from the constant wet conditions. My dogs coats look great, and my husband and I just feel better!

Beagle Healed!

I am one of those not so easily convienced individuals. Two years ago a friend of my had a very sick beagle. This dog was a great hunting dog and was special in his abilities. However, his dog had become very ill and he had over the period of one year spent $5,000. at Vets. office trying to find out what was wrong with his dog. He was intoduced to DE by a friend of ours who trains and handles beagles and has about 60 hounds in his kennels. He put his hound on DE and within 2 weeks noticed a difference. He no longer had bowl problems, his energy level increased, no more worms kidney's began working at a full level. This is not just a story. He took his dog back to the Vet. after a month and the Vet. couldn't believe the improvement in the dog. They took the dog off of all Vet. meds. and now two years later the dog is breeding, running, and he has been given a clean bill of health from the Vet. I had been told of this DE product by the same friend that told the above dog owner. I have been using a heaped up tea spoon on my hounds feed for over a year now and all are healthy, no worm problems, hair slick, eyes bright and clear, energy levels are above average even for the 10 year old that had teeth cleaning problems constantly. Like Jess said, "I will never be without DE as long as I raise dogs." Yes, I have taken it myself and I tested it. I do not have a lot of health problems but arthritis and a diabetic (adult type 2). I began using it and after about 6 weeks my sugar level was down about 20 points and my pain in my hands subsided. Thanks for advertising this great product.

No More Bald Spot!

I found out about DE accidentially at the feed store. They didn't sell food grade. Fortunately, I found Earthworks. My Beagle puppy had started getting bald patches on one side of her little body. I thought, perhaps, she had an allergy to her collar, so I removed it. The patches got larger, and reddened. After some investigation, I found that it was perhaps psoriasis. I don't like the chemicals that are always associated with salves and whatever the vet might prescribe, I ordered my first jug of DE. We started taking it on March 3, and as of today the patches have almost disappeared! Hair is growing back, and her coat seems to be thicker and shinier. My hip pain was virtually gone within a matter of days! I had a patch of grass that was browning, and the nursery told me that I may have parasites in the soil. Rather then spreading chemicals on the lawn that my birds & squirrels eat on, I tried DE. Grass is coming back! My mom is in a nursing home with all the aches and pains associated with being 90 years old. I am starting her on DE, and will pray it works as well for her as it did for me and Daisy the Beagle. THANKS DE......You will remain a staple in our happy, bug & pain free home. Can't even being to think of the money you saved me, and it's organic. Thanks, again! Cathi Florida

Several Dogs More Active!

This stuff is great!! It has helped me in so many ways, and my cat that for 6 years had a limp and a lot of pain. He could only walk 10 to 20 steps and then have to sit or lay down for a bit, then go again. Now he chases our little ferril cat arount the house! She also takes DE--they are both very healthy now. His name is Jake, hers is pepper. I also told my best friend about this wonderful stuff--she has a sheep dog named fancy. Fancy could hardly get up when she sits or lays down and was on meds that cost 100 dollars each month! Fancy has been on DE since the 1st of Oct. and now chases birds and runs through the house. After seeing how Fancy was not in pain anymore, her husband said to order more of that "dirt"--we never want to run out!! Thank you for this wonderful stuff!

Both Dogs Helped

After starting my entire family (dogs and all) on DE several months ago the results have been just amazing. Our 2 ? year old Mastiff has suffered from pancreatitis since she was six months old. When she went in for her latest checkup the vet was thrilled to see that her numbers are coming down and she is within 5 points of normal enzyme levels. I told him I had her on DE and he told me to keep doing what we are doing. Our ten year old arthritic German Shorthair takes it and has been able to get up and down with greater ease. I believe this is a true gift from God and I love to tell anyone who will listen to me all about it.

Dog is Healed!

I have a two year old Boxer and Golden Retreiver mix that got really sick. She went from being really playful, jumping around, and a very happy dog, to being totally lifeless. For about two months she got to where she wasn't eating very good, started loosing weight, coughing all the time and had no energy. All she would do was just lay around the yard. She also got to where she didn't want to play with us or our three other dogs. Every time she did get up and move around, she would start coughing really bad. This really had us worried thinking that maybe she could have heartworms or some kind of parasites or maybe even valley fever. So I talked to a lady that I knew about my dog's problems and she told me about the DE and how it was really good for worms and parasites and humans and animals could take it. So I did some research about the DE on the internet and I came across your website. After reading all of the human and animal testimonials, I was just amazed at how good this stuff really was and how resonable the price was. So I ordered some from your website. I have been giving all of my dogs a tablespoon a day of the DE and my family and I have been taking a heaping tablespoon a day also. It has been about three months since our dogs and my family and I have been taking the DE. And just to let you know, after three months of taking the DE, our sick dog is healed!!! She isn't coughing anymore, has lots of energy again, eating a lot and is jumping like crazy. She is like a new dog again and back to her playful ways. I will continue to tell everyone I know about this wonderful stuff. I am a believer in the DE and its truly a miracle from God! I am really thankful for your company and getting my happy, healthy dog back. May God bless you and your familes. Lorie

For Myself and Pets

Just a few lines to add to the growing testimonials. I just placed another order to send to my daughter and ordered four jugs for my friends in Fl. that believe what I told them about the DE. I am a one of the believers in treating the body naturally all my life. I have been taking the DE for three weeks now and I can feel the difference already. My dog (a lab) has been suffering with itching and had a smell so bad you couldn't sit next to her. We spent tons on Vet bills to no avail. I mixed a batch with water and soaked her after her bath. Today she is free of the bad skin odor and the vet is now a believer. Keep spreading the word for a great product. PS. My BP has dropped 15 points in three weeks. I dumped the pills the Dr. gave me months ago.. One of the side affects was anemia and when I went for my blood test six months ago, I had it. Thanks doc. When I am ready to die it will be at my own hands not yours. Gino

Acting 10 Years Younger!

I came across your website when I was looking for help with my dog who had kidney disease. My other dog had been to the vet and had a injection for itching, loosing his hair, plus the other vaccines. He was falling down outside and having a very hard time being stable on his feet after that day. I started giving him diatomaceous earth ( 1 Teaspoon 2x's a day. ) He is like 10 years younger now. He dances in circles ready to go outside in the morning now. No more falling down. Then my husband and I started taking it. He lost 10 lbs, I have fingernails that grow over the tops of my fingers. It's great for constapation. I sent some to my sister and she now has great fingernails. Something so cheap and simple. And so natural. Nancy

No More Eating Poop!

I have tried every product for and everything recommended to stop dogs from eating their Poop. Nothing worked. Once I started to add D-Earth to my dog food on a daily basis, that problem has been taken care of. No more eating Poop. Thanks!! South Carolina

Itching Gone!

thank you and I have already dusted my dogs and the itching is gone in 20 minutes! Jackie

Joint Pain in Dogs

I feel great and so does my husband. But the story does not end there. I have tried it on my Boxer dog and on my cats. Boxers are known for joint pains and hip issues, needless to say our boy is running like a champ and looking awesome. I also apply it to his coat and he no longer itches and scratches. Thank you! I have recommended your product to many.

Like a puppy again!

My MinPin dog is over 7 years old and since eating the dirt is playing like a puppy again! It is a joy to see! Thanks so much.

10 Year believer!

I am so a believer now!! I am a breeder of Anatolian Shepherd Dogs and have been using Diatomaceous earth for at least 10 years to keep my home, my yard and my dogs free of insects and parasites. I have also been giving it to my dogs for internal parasites. I have a now 11 year old male who had been getting stiffer over the last few years and I was not looking forward to the time when I would have put him out of his pain. Right after I started giving him the DE for internal parasites, I noticed he was not having as much trouble getting up as he used to. Over time, he got better and better, and while he is not running around like a youngster, his quality of life has improved enormously. After running across your site and learning that humans can use DE also, I started using it for my arthritis ... not really expecting any difference for a few months. After taking DE for less than 3 months, I can now walk up stairs easily without dragging myself up by the railings. I am losing weight gradually and didn't even realize it until a friend asked me what kind of diet I was on because I was so much thinner than the last time she saw me. Since I had not been dieting, but had been eating the same as in the past, I was surprised when I got on the scales and saw I had lost 11 lbs in 3 months without changing my eating regimen in any way!! And, the one thing I really like is the texture of my skin has improved drastically ... used to itch all the time ... not anymore and it feels so much softer. I just cannot say enough about DE ... I tell all my friends and, of course, I am a walking advertisement since I have changed so much and they can see the difference in me. All I can say is ... thanks so much and God bless you for making something so good affordable for those like me (I just turned 65) who are on a fixed income and cannot afford expensive arthritis meds. I don't know what I would do without you.

Acts Like a Puppy Again!!

I heard about DE from good friends of mine. They give it to their dogs and horses. So I finally broke down and ordered some. I have been giving it to my 4 dogs for the past few months. They are 21 months, 10 yrs, 11 yrs, and 12 yrs old respectively. My senior dane had slowed down a bit due to arthritis. But with the DE, she has the energy of a puppy! She and my dane pup play rodeo and nascar in the living room every evening after dinner. My old coon hound is wide open, just like when I brought him home from the shelter. All of their fur is super soft and velvety, like rabbit fur. It's amazing. I am going to start taking it myself, too. Can't wait to see the results ! Thanks for offering such a great product ! Jill

Helped our cat!

Hello, Love your DE! I bought it for our cat who was a rescued cat at a shelter. The whole litter was found in the dumpster at 4 weeks old. On antibiotics from the start. Then when he was 3 he fell out of a third story window and had surgery to put him back together again. And another surgery. Lots of digestive difficulites and on special foods, sneezing and throwing up. And he had a mean streak to him. Now on DE no more digestive difficulties at all and he does not seem to have the mean streak at all any more. Used to hiss around other animals and sometimes people. No more. It seems to be very calming. Also he would get these raw sores by his ears. The vet would put him on antibiotics and a steroid cream. They would always come back. I put some DE in a healthy skin cream and put it on the sores and in 3 applications the sores were gone! He usually hates me to put stuff on him and hides and will hardly come around to eat. Would eat in the middle of the night to avoid me treating him. But with the DE he seemed to know immediately that it felt good and let me do it. Amazing. I give him about 1/2 tsp in his dry food and another 1/2 tsp in his canned food every day.

Less Odor

I have new young chickens that I've raised from baby chicks. While they were in the house in a cage in my office, I used DE on the shavings daily and it totally eliminated the odor, which was wonderful. Before I purchased DE, I had to totally clean out the cage every day or the odor would drive me out of my office! Since using DE, I only had to change the litter every four or five days. Now the chicks have moved to their new "home" in the backyard, and I use a sifter and ?sift? DE all over their coop and run, and I haven't yet smelled any odor. I also use it for my dogs and I take a tablespoon of it myself every day. I'm planning to discontinue my dog's heartworm medicine and go strictly with DE. Kathleen

16 Year Old Dog

I started taking diatomaceous earth 3 years ago for arthritis.My hands were so bad that I couldn't hold on to a coffee cup and could not sleep because my hips would hurt so bad and my friend told me about an article she read telling about DE. Within 2 weeks of taking it 2 times a day my pain was gone.I also gave some to my sister for her 16yr. old dog that could hardly walk and 2 weeks later she called and said that he was almost like a puppy again.I am sold on it .

Dog more energetic

My mom is disabled and no longer able to care for her aging Min Pin. I started him on 1 tsp. of DE per morning in his food. It has only been a week and he has switched from "hard to get off the porch for his walk" to yesterday HE WALKED ME!! to the neighbor's property 1/2 mile away!! He even ran part way across the neighbor's field. I don't do testimonials, but THIS IS CRAZY! I had to tell you. Mom is so happy the his health is no longer in decline. "Zeus" is very visibly happier and so much more energetic. I know he thanks you too. Paul in NV

Heart Murmur and energy returns to our dog!

I wanted to tel you our story about out dog Toby and his experience with DE. Toby, is a Cavalier King Charles dog. He is 8 years old. Our vet informed us in October of 2013 that Toby had a grade 5 heart murmur. This was difficult news because Toby is a beloved member of our family as all out dogs are but especially Toby because he was the first King Charles puppy we bought and he was quite honestly sort of pathetic looking. We decided to choose buying him over his brother because we didn't think anyone would buy Toby because he was so scrawny and timid. We felt like we were supposed to get him. Anyway, a week before this past Christmas, Toby, started having breathing problems. It was not good; he was laboring to breathe, and constantly coughing. We were pretty certain we would lose him very soon. We made the decision to take him to the vet prepared for the fact they may recommend putting him to sleep. I said a heartfelt prayer to God asking that he please spare Toby's life. I told my wife to please ask the vet if there is anything we could do to keep him without him being in pain to please do so. The vet informed us that he has a very enlarged heart that takes up about 90% of his ribcage and he had water on his lungs. his heart was not circulating properly. But the vet said she wanted to give him a different heart medication Lasix. Two days after this Toby started feeling better but a week later is when I drove up to Norfolk, NE to pick up a 50 pound bag of DE. My wife decided to try making natural dog treats with DE in them to give to out dogs. We were giving them 3-4 treats per day and an amazing thing happened to Toby. Just one week after taking the treats, he began running around like he was a puppy! His tri-colored coat has NEVER looked as good as it does now! We are not exaggerating in the least about his turn around. We know God answered our prayer and that DE was a big part of that. We ourselves are benefiting from the DE too. I will share some other time about how I cam across your website. For now I'll just say, the Lord lead me here. Thank you for your part in all of this. Blessings! Don & Georgia L

Cloudy Eyes Gone

Hello, I have a miniature schnauzer of 11 years, her eyes turned a cloudy gray green and she bumped into everything, she was practically blind. At night she needed assistance to find her way outside to pee. I had some DE so I put her dog food that we keep in a 5 gallon bucket. I added several cups, put the lid on and shook it up till all the food was coated white. After about 3 months of feeding her the coated dog food the cloudy eyes cleared up and turned back to normal brown color. Other noticeable differences, nice fur coat, better mobility, moles fell off, and more vigor. I'm not sure exactly why this stuff works but it did for my pet and I am very happy to have my dog back to normal. Brad, Reno NV

DE helped my dog's spinal injury!

Just have to let you know, our 15 yr old toy poodle injured her spine. Our vet told us to just take her home & treat her as an injured senior citizen . She was too old for surgery. Started her on your pet product w/ vitamins. We build her a ramp to go out her doggie door. She couldn't & wouldn't climb the steps into our house. We had to pick her up & carry her inside. Within 2 wks, she started walking just around the house. It has been about 4 mos now, she is climbing the steps, walking daily w/us & we are thinking about taking down her ramp. She doesn't limp anymore at all. God bless you for this wonderful product. My husband & I both are taking it. Since God made DC, I am giving him all the glory & thanks.

Performance Horses love DE!

Divine Performance Horses is a training facility located here in Brady, TX. Our ranch has been located here for 5 generations and over time, gone from a strictly sheep industry, to cattle and sheep, to cattle only, but one of the things that has not changed in this family is, training horses. Training has been a side job in our family for multiple reasons, we need horses here as ranch hands, and to sell for extra side money at the end of the year. I am a 3rd generation horse trainer 5th generation rancher. We have horses coming in and out of training every month from all around. We put our horses through intense training, some more than others, depending on what the owner has them being prepped for. We specialize in race preparation, colt starting, ranching, barrel racing, and more. We host clinics and give riding lessons to McCullough county and surrounding counties. We are huge in the Barrel Futurities and travel with our client's horses as well as ours, to events across the states. We put banners in front of our stalls, advertising our DPH business as well as our sponsors. People ask us what we feed, saying our horses look great, and right now we are telling them about one of our sponsors and the supplement they supply us with: EQ Royal a blood builder, which is great, and does wonders for horses under intense stress and competition, but not all of the horses are on it. What all the horses are on in the DPH barn is DE! We have been using the DE powder for the last 8 months, and we love it! DE is easy, does not break the bank, and our horses have maintained the weight they need, even under intense training. Where our journey begins with DE: Part of being a training facility is making sure horses coming and going look great, the process of finding a non chemical supplement that was compatible for horses coming in and out, was a pain to have several different supplements for several different things, when DE does it all at once. While having to feed several different horses. I switched from several high dollar supplements. This resulted with some horses looking great, while others, well, feeding them endless scoops morning and night just to maintain their health and body fat while in training became very pricey. I was stressed but determined to find a supplement that my barn could manage on. I was not impressed with the higher brands nor did I like feeding chemicals and found it hard for horses under training to maintain weight. Needless to say, the horses started dropping weight fast, I was not happy with that product. Immediately dis continued the use of those supplements. After taking equine nutrition classes, for multiple reason so I can better inform my clients and students on proper feeding management with their horses, talking with my 1st cousin whom I have worked under several years and very close to is vet, we started pulling labels and comparing supplements We liked what We read with DE. Long story to short for the last 8 months Divine Performance Horses has been feeding DE. With no colic, weight problems, and horses who have seemed to have sensitive stomachs have also done great on the powder. Like previously stated, horses who are here for a short amount of time adjust to DE beautifully and maintain the weight without breaking the bank, this was just what we needed thank you so much! I have some students who I convinced to switch to it love the price as well as the results.
