Slippery Elm Bark for IBS?
I am new to the forum and joined to see if I could get information about Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I suspect my cat Kali has had it all of her life, but recently she has developed food allergies, and I am quite confident that it is to chicken. I won't go into the lengthy story of why I have come to this conclusion, but suffice to say since I've put her onto a new diet the symptoms have improved. She is now on Wysong Anergen "hard" food and Natural Balance Duck and Pea "wet" food.
I have read that Slippery Elm Bark is good for cats with IBS and I was wondering if any of you use it, and if so in what form? I have purchased some in liquid form but am unsure as to how much to give her, and how often. Does anyone else give their cat Slippery Elm in liquid form? I am also confused as to whether to give it only temporarily or as a continuing therapy.
Any help I could receive on this would be much appreciated. Thanks!
