Another thing -- I think the slippery elm by itself is sketchy tasting. It tastes like it smells.

However, mine LOVE bovine colostrum (I think it reminds them of nursing as puppies--their reactions are kind of funny). I can mix a scoop of bovine colostrum powder, open up a capsule of slippery elm, add some probiotic, and maybe a half a cup of filtered water, and most dogs will slurp it down. Their love of the colostrum overrides the slippery elm taste.

I don't think there is enough slippery elm in feedsentials to make a difference for a specific application. Its one of the much lower ingredients on the list, so you'd have to give an enormous amount of feedsentials to reach a helpful dose of slippery elm.
I bought slippery elm and I actually thought it smelled and tasted good lol (like oatmeal with brown sugar ) so I tried it myself for my stomach issues. Didn't notice any difference at all. When I've given it in the recommended dosage to my dogs, I never noticed it helping them either (it may or may not have, I just didn't see any effects.)

You may already know this or maybe someone has mentioned it-don't give it right before or right after medication because it can interfere with it.
