Default Buck Mountain Parasite Dust?

Wondering if anyone has ever used or knows someone who used this product?
It is a natural dust that you brush on to your pet that supposedly deals with fleas, ticks, mites etc.
Just looking for some input into if it works or not.

Does it have diatomaceous earth as the main ingredient? I've heard positive things about that but have never used it.

Yeah the ingredients are: Organic neem Organic yarrow and Diatom Flour (which I believe is diatomaceous earth although maybe it isn't the same thing)

hmmmm..... well if I had a flea infestation, I'd just use a topical drop from the vet and get rid of them. But if you want to go a totally natural route, then that powder would probably work fine. I've heard "miracle" stories about people using the d.earth and getting super results from it. However, it kills each and every bug so be careful if you scatter it outside. It will kill all insects it touches.

Well my hope is to never have an infestation hahaha. It was more a question in terms of a monthly "preventative." Probably more so for Halpert since he is the one who comes to the park/dog run etc etc. The chis are too good for other dogs
But I dunno. I just don't want to be pumping more chemicals in them than necessary, but at the same time the last thing I need is to bring home any fleas or things. So if it was effective why not use it every so often. But if its not I don't want to waste my money.

There are hazards with using dusts. Mostly from breathing it in. I am very conservative about chemicals... but, I do use Frontline Plus. Generally, I only apply it every 90 days and we have not had any issues. I read once that it was effective for 3 months with fleas and only one month for ticks.

yes, be very careful with the powder and use a mask while applying it. It has microscopic razor like edges in it that can slice through respiratory tracts, so that has kind of scared me away from using it. I don't know how I feel about sprinkling on a dog and having them sniff at it, etc. I'd probably stick with the topical flea drops from the vet and use very conservatively.

If it can slice a resp tract lining why would they sell it?! Urg.
I figured (stupidly) that it must be too microscopic to have issue with larger animals because why in the world would it be used if that wasn't the case?

Blah. I'd just really rather not have to use meds... oh well.
