Pet Grocer - French Green ClayRegular price $10.99
When hydrated with spring or purified water, montmorillonite binds to toxins and holds them safe so they can be excreted out of the body, making French green clay invaluable for removing blood toxins, bacteria and heavy metals. Another benefit of montmorillonite is that it has anti-inflammatory properties. It is high in silica and supports the production of fascia and connective tissue to help decongest arthritic and muscular conditions.
Never let clay come in contact with metal. Use glass or wooden containers and utensils
- Treat one issue at a time (this is important).
- Don’t feed your dog for at least two hours after an internal clay treatment.
- Wait at least two hours after your dog ingests clay to give any medications or herbs.
- Clay can be used daily until your dog is healed. If clay treatment doesn’t improve your dog’s condition, discontinue use.
Dry application can be used as a disinfectant in treating wounds. Clay can immediately stop bleeding wounds and prevent scab formation. This type of application has been successfully used in the treatment of hot spots, stings, bites, and severe itching. Mix clay powder and water together and make a dry paste. Apply to bleeding wounds and wounds that need to heal without scabbing. This method can help prevent abscesses and keep a healing wound from itching.
Internal uses for clay include parasites, deworming, digestive issues, and detoxification. It can also help remove radiation from the body after cancer treatments.

Give 1/4 tsp clay slurry for each 20 lbs of weight. This applies to both humans and dogs. Sometimes using clays internally can cause rapid detox, which can result in constipation or diarrhea.

When used as a poultice it aids in the drawing out of toxins from infected wounds whilst protecting from flies. Green clay, when taken internally has an adsorption action that facilitates the expulsion of toxins in the gut - the toxins bind onto the external surface of the clay and are expelled with the clay. Dogs with fungal infections often select it and allow it to be dusted onto the affected areas.
It is also rich with minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc, aluminum, silicon, copper, selenium, cobalt, and molybdenum. https://www.whitethornherbals.com/store/p27/Green_Clay_%28French%29.html June 30, 2020
