Changes in fingernail pigmentation called Mees lines normally don’t appear for several months after poisoning takes place. Plus, Mees lines can be an effect of lots of different heavy metals.
During a research study, out of 74 patients with acute and chronic arsenic poisoning Mees lines showed up in just 5% of the patients. My guess would be that the Diatomaceous Earth is causing the metals to be expelled and therefore showing up as Mees lines. Of course, I have no proof of this, so if you would be more comfortable, I would order from another source. To be honest, I wouldn’t order a vitamin or other supplement from eBay for my dog, let alone myself.
