My older kitty suffers from IBD and I’m trying to slowly taper down and wean him off of steroids after a year, and so far Slippery Elm seems to be just the thing to soothe his gut.
Slippery elm contains a synergistic mix of plant mucilage, tannins and polysaccharides that help promote healthy digestive functions and support normal waste elimination. Useful for occasional; bouts of coughing too!
My senior Boxer has mild IBD and pants every night after dinner. I give this to her before her dinner and it soothes her tummy and she completely stopped panting. REALLY works!!!
This tincture saved my cat's life. My 15 1/2 year old cat has a severe case of IBD. It's chronic and only can be managed. We've been battling it for the past year with different type of products. The IBD got to a point where my cat didn't want to eat at all. We were ready to let him go. He was lethargic and as a last attempt I called my homeopathic vet. She said try Slippery Elm. I ordered the single herb Slipery Elm and after a couple of days my cat started eating again. Now we're about 5 weeks in and he's eating full meals again and has gained almost a pound of weight back. My cat also has asthma and we're hoping that this product will also support him and ease the coughing.
