    How much do you give each cat? We've got multiple cats and it says you can mix it with food but how do we give them the DE to make sure they get their dosage? We're afraid if we just mix it in with the food then one would get too much, not enough, etc. Thanks!!

    I have heard of doing this but I have never tried it.  You do need to make sure you have the food grade.  To be honest the only thing I have seen about this is that it isn't very effective but maybe the dosage wasn't right.

    I buy my food grade  DE from Wolfcreek Ranch .   It works very well .  I do not use as a duster  . I just add to wet food if needed .

    Here is some info from their website on use and dosage . You  can order here too ..
