Slippery Elm (Ulmus fulva) is an excellent treatment for diarrhea, colitis and inflammation of the intestinal tract. It soothes the mucous membranes of the intestines, as well as the respiratory and urinary tracts. This is a good herb to use for dogs with sensitive stomachs, who have bad responses to even the slightest fluctuation in diet.
Slippery Elm is recognized for its bark, which is a first-class digestive herb, rich in trace minerals such as manganese, iodine, protein and soothing mucilage. It is an illustrious herb in naturopathic groups and is regularly used by holistic veterinarians to improve the health of the digestive tract in dogs.
While slippery elm assists in easing pain and irritation in the stomach, intestines, kidneys and the urinary tract, it is also of value in addressing problems associated with the reproductive system and the respiratory system. The inner bark of slippery elm is used to treat gastritis, peptic ulcers, colitis and enteritis. The herb also has properties of alleviating cystitis and an inflammatory bladder.
