Lol early for once! Usually Im a night owl, but I've been ill and was in bed by 8 o'clock last night.
Tree Barks powder is mostly Slippery Elm, you can get it in health food shops, I get mine in pet shops, about £6 for a big tub it is made by Dorwest. Harley has a sensitive tummy, and it really makes a difference to his recovery.
I would fast Mylo for no longer than 12 hours as he is a puppy. possibly less, depends how severe the diarrhoea was.
I always feed bone in chicken without fat/skin after an upset tummy, but really tiny amounts. If it stays down and no more diarrhoea, he gets another tiny amount. 4 tiny meals, then 3 the next day, gradually upping the fat levels again, back to his regular 2 meals on the third day. I purposely keep the bone content high.
It has taken a while to perfect, but this is what works for Harley. .he used to get really thin after an upset tummy, with the Tree Bark he bounces back so much quicker.
