I've heard its GREAT. Helps to heal and coat the gut and many dogs really like the taste. I've heard to just open a capsule and put in warm water or just sprinkle on a meatball. I've never had to use it as Brody has an iron tummy. But I would if he needed it.

We tried it for Bryco, I didn't feel it did much. He was on it for 2 months...But he was also still on a kibble at that time....so maybe it does work. I hope you find something to help her hun...I wish I could ship you a few bottles of the puppy diarrhea aid I used for him...it was incredible and I was SHOCKED & so very thankful with how well it worked :-/ its this stuff: NaturVet Anti-Diarrhea Aid for Pets at PETCO maybe you can find something similar?

Ingredients
Active ingredients per 2 tablespoons: Kaolin 5.8 grams, Pectin 0.26 grams.
Inactive ingredients: Citric Acid, Cranberry Powder, Glycerine, Natural Flavoring, Potassium Sorbate, Purified Water, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Carboxymethylcellulose and Sorbitol.


All I know is it worked wonders and really seemed to calm his tummy. I mixed about a teaspoon with a teaspoon of yogurt and a teaspoon of pure beef baby food and viola...better!

That diarrhea aid would be the same as people's Kaopectate. :) Not sure if they have that in the UK but just look for the active ingredients.... kaolin and pectin.

It's had really fab reviews from what I read! Hopefully it'll arrive soon!! Saoirse I'll let you know if it helps daisy as she's been bad for a while now on and off

Kristi I'll have a look is it like immodium fir dogs? I'm a firm believer of get it out your system lol but if it carries on I'll have a look

I'm so paranoid about putting anything not natural in their systems I'm the same with abi altho those ingredients don't have an actual medication so to speak?

I'm so over washing her pants on nye it was so bad it squirted up her back I wouldn't mind her bowl movement in the morning was normal!! Very annoying!!

Slippery Elm is excellent for upset tummies! Love to hear how it goes over for yours.

Our Faith has irritable bowel and we put her on Perfect Form which contains Slippery Elm in it and it was the answer to our prayers. It's worked like a charm and cleared up all her tummy troubles, and the best part is it's natural and safe for long term use which is a huge deal for dogs with chronic bowel problems like our girl. :)
