Its effectiveness is due to its charge. This allows it to pull charged toxins from the body. And then together are eliminated through your dog's stool.
Using Bentonite Clay Topically In Dogs
- You can mix it with equal parts of filtered water in a glass container.
- Don’t allow the clay to touch metal or you’ll risk reducing its effectiveness.
- Apply it as a paste to itchy skin, bug bites or other skin maladies. Allow the clay to fully dry and then wash it off.
- This paste is also great as a pet-friendly toothpaste.
As a poultice:
- You can use it as a poultice also for a more potent application. Simply apply the paste to the area and wrap it carefully with wet gauze or cloth.
- Be very careful to monitor the wrap so it doesn’t shift or ‘cord’ around the area and tighten.
- Dampen and rewrap every two hours until the desired treatment has been achieved.
- For treating mastitis, apply a paste or mask to the affected area to help draw out the toxins in the body. Repeat hourly.
A soothing bath:
- Add a 1/2 -1 cup of Bentonite clay to a bathtub for general detoxification.
Let your dog soak for 20 minutes or so if he will allow it. This is a great option for dogs who have many areas of irritated skin.
Benefits Of Feeding Bentonite Clay To Your Dog
- You can add some bentonite clay to your pet's water. Or you can give it orally with a dropper when he develops vomiting, diarrhea or other illness.
Calcium bentonite clay is also effective at treating internal parasites.
- It supports detoxification of the liver and kidneys. Which is helpful as both are prone to becoming overloaded.
