Slippery Elm Bark: Superfood For Dogs
9 oz in a recyclable glass jar
A whole food product for your dog. Made with 100% natural, organic Slippery Elm Bark. Lubricating and coating the protective layers of the bowel, it acts as the first defence against inflammation by keeping foods, grass, or things your dog shouldn’t be eating, from causing further irritation. To treat sudden cases of diarrhea, you can also fast your dog, feed bland food and give probiotics along with slippery elm to ease symptoms.
