DE as flea deterrent
My pug has picked up a few fleas at the dog park and other public places. He's on a monthly flea pill, but it doesn't seem to be helping kill the ones he has now, nor does the flea shampoo. I don't like the idea of adding yet another insecticide to my dog's body and have researched using diatomaceous earth (DE).
Does anyone have experience with it?
I know you're supposed to wear a mask when applying but once it settles there's not much harm. For some reason, my pug likes to bury his nose in the carpet to get a good smell. Would he be inhaling enough of it to cause him harm? He's buried maybe four times a day for three seconds or so each, but he's definately smooshed in there.
