Buy Non-GMO Organic Slippery Elm bark (Ulmus rubra) - Oregon's Wild Harvest

Yes, it's safe - I just sprinkle a little on Gracie's food once a day. I make sure to buy the powder or gel capsule form, so I can do that. I have never dealt with it in pill form - not even sure if it exists in pills...I have also found that probiotics (for cats and dogs) have been very helpful for Gracie overall. She is definitely on the sensitive side when it comes to digestion - when she experiences stress we always see it in the litter box (or not in the box, if you get what I mean ).

Homeopathy is fantastic and my vet prescribes homeopathic solutions more often than pharmaceuticals, but please remember that it can't take the place of an actual veterinary diagnosis.

Be sure your cat does have what your treating it for and that it's not something MORE serious that requires urgent care.

she already saw a vet 4 times this year he tried stuff but some doesn't work she probably has a senstive stomach so no worries on the vet so i'm hoping this would work though she may have ibs just can't afford a indepth one it would be about 1000-1500 thats why my vet gives me predisone but she ran out and she has priobiotics. but i think the trigger is wet food. she did well on rabbit today from natures variety but that is to expensive to feed her every single day

Traditional Native American medicine prescribes Slippery Elm BARK for digestive complaints and as a painkiller. Other remedies include Chicory,Goldenseal and myrhh,but these might not be safe for your cat- buddy!
