I just picked up a bag of food grade DE today... after many years (thank gods!) of not having a flea problem I saw ONE the other day and immediately went on a cleaning rampage...

I plan on dusting some on their beds and around the house a bit (I've read it can upset vacuums?)... I might even put a little on them... but I also read that it can be used as a wormer? what kind of dosage/duration should go in their food?

you can feed it to them, read the web site because too much can cause constipation.

I read the site but that was regarding a person taking it for a detox, I was looking for info on how much to give and for how long for it to work as a dewormer... I searched the board before I posted... but I just found Wolf Creek Ranch's website... so I guess I'll just go with that
