You should hear shortly from Lisa (Thurston and Kimchi's mom). She swears by it, too.

Oh yes!!! It works the best of anything I have tried! I haven't used Frontline or Advantage on MuShu in years. I found a product called "Flea Away" at Whole Foods and all it is is diatamaceous earth. It works well and it works FAST! Sprinkle it on carpet, vac up and leave the bag alone (don't empty right away) cause it kills the fleas and eggs by dehydrating them. Sprinkle more under the cushions of the pet's bed, sofa and chair cushions, anywhere fleas might hide and lay eggs. Do this frequently (I did it every day for a couple of weeks when the fleas were horrendous) and wash their bedding of course. You can also put it on their fur. Just be very careful that the doggie not inhale it. I think you can even sprinkle it on the lawn but I haven't tried that. Anyway, it is WONDERFUL stuff!

DE is pretty much all I've been using for my cats and house. I still give Revolution/Frountline Plus to the pugs because of the heartworm protection.

It takes a while to be completely effective, but with diligence, the fleas are dead dead dead! I also give it internally to all of my animals. It gets rid of any parasites internally too. I always try and go the organic route whenever possible and this seems to work well.
