What is Slippery Elm, and what is it good for?

Best Natural Pets is proud to carry Slippery Elm tincture (by Golden Lotus Herbs). Slippery Elm (Ulmus rubra) is derived from the dried, inner bark (or pith) of the Slippery Elm tree (aka Red elm or Soft elm) and is taken orally to form a protective coating for the entire digestive tract (from the mouth all the way down to large intestines). It is taken orally to provide temporary relief for pets having difficulties with digestion and elimination that involve inflammation, irritation of the stomach lining and/or intestinal mucosa, and GI pain.

So for example, perhaps your pet suddenly loses their appetite, or eats just little then vomits it up soon after (this may indicate ulcers or some other irritating factor in the stomach); or, perhaps when you take your dog out for a walk, she poops a little bit and then keeps stopping and trying to poop again, straining, with very little "production" to show for it (this may indicate heat and inflammation in the large intestines-- especially if the discharge is runny and extra-smelly). It's hard to tell for sure, because your pat cannot just tell you what hurts or what's wrong; but Slippery Elm can be a nice, soothing thing to give your animal while you work with a vet to figure out the root causes of what's going on.

Dosing guidelines: Slippery Elm is not a pharmaceutical medication, so the ideal is to use the information below as a guide to start off with. You should observe your pet's symptoms and recalibrate the dosage accordingly. Note that if Slippery Elm does not help with your pet's symptoms, that is valuable info for your vet as well...

Dogs:

Under 30 lbs: .25 - .5 ml, 1-3x daily; 30 - 60 lbs: .5 - 1 ml,1-3x daily; Over 60 lbs: 1 - 2 ml, 1-3x daily

Cats:

.25 - .5 ml 1-3x daily

Contraindications:

Do not use if your pet is pregnant;

Slippery Elm coats the stomach and may interfere with the body's ability to absorb medications (give meds 2-3 hours after last dose of Slippery Elm).
