Dosage for Slippery Elm

Sorry if this is somewhere, I couldn't find it. What dosage is effective? Do I have to make up a paste, or can i just give her capsules? The dosage on the bottle for an adult is 3 capsules. Sound about right for a 93# dog?

Re: Dosage for Slippery Elm

I gave Chama 3 capsules 3 times a day, at least a half hour from food.

Re: Dosage for Slippery Elm

Same here. I usually did it closer to an hour before.

I break the capsules open and make a past with water and pumpkin--not give them whole.

Re: Dosage for Slippery Elm

Forgive me as I see no reference for what you're using this for. More info would be great to know how to help.

Re: Dosage for Slippery Elm

Onyx had a bout of nausea, she was throwing up all friday night and then several times yesterday. No diarrhea, though.
I have rested her gut and when I re-introduce a bland diet tomorrow am, I want to give S.E to aid in healing.
Here is the thread describing in more detail:

Re: Dosage for Slippery Elm

I use it as a paste for my CRF cat but just stick them down the throat with my dogs, when they have nauseau or digestive issues.

Aluna--you can search people's back posts by clicking on their name. Jane's dog has been vomiting. I am the slippery elm afficionado on this board.

Jane,

I would give it today if you've got it. It helps bring down inflammation which she clearly had yesterday. And I've switched over to the powder instead of the capsules. The powder is just slippery elm with nothing else and much cheaper to buy in bulk.

Re: Dosage for Slippery Elm

I haven't given her anything but a third cup of water today, should I give her it as you do, caps down the throat? Or with a bit of something? Vet said nothing today except small doses of water several hrs apart. She hasn't barfed since last nights bloody one.
