WARNING

Diatomaceous earth is a siliceous-based shell material with strong abrasive properties and sharp edges, even when in powder form. Some pet owners started to feed it to their animals, including their rabbits, in attempts to deworm them, or kill fleas. Ingestion of diatomaceous earth has led to internal bleeding and ultimately death.
