I use it, the rescue uses it. It's good for all kinds of things, not just animals but we use it for the dogs and cats here when we can get it. (It IS pricey) When using it to de-worm it cuts up the worms into little tiny pieces making it easier for the animal to pass. It also helps with diarrhea. It will get soft poop solid fast. It does the same thing to fleas as it does to worms. Lightly dust your animals with it and fleas go bye bye lol. I love it...it works wonders...it's just not that cheap lol.

Where can you find it?

Is it bad for the animals to inhale? I never knew they could eat it....

Not good for you or them to inhale. I've been told it settles fast if you want to use it on carpeting and have it not be an inhalation hazard. I know people use it on their animals.. but I don't want it inhaled.

Only medical grade should really be ingested from what I've read. There's something like 4 grades to pick from... I'd assume it's pricier.
