Digestive Problems - Slippery Elm
L-R: Blu, Dusty and Rosie Having Fun at the Beach
Slippery Elm powder is always in my canine medicine box. I've got 5 dogs so running to the vet for simple tummy upsets could become very expensive!
Slippery Elm is an amazing remedy with many uses but for digestive/gastric upsets I just mix a teaspoon into a paste with boiling water and add it to a little food twice a day. If the situation hasn't resolved after 48 hours then it's time for expert advice, or if it worsens. It can also be used as a poultice.

Great addition, Caroline, and a definite "must-have" to include in building a survival kit of natural pet remedies. I'm so glad you suggested it as I had forgotten that a holistic vet in Atlanta had provided slippery elm many years ago for stomach upsets and digestive problems. Good for humans and dogs! Good prices and selection here. Thank you!
