Slippery Elm

How much do I give? She's 68 lbs. I have 400 mg capsules. Can this be used daily long term or is short term dosing recommended?

Thank you! I saw the Dogs Naturally article and wasn't sure if 68 lbs. was considered a med or large dog. The second article clarified that for me.
Now lets hope I can get her to consume the the tea/soup. She is the fussiest eater I have ever had.

She is like the little kid who doesn't like peas and won't eat anything on the plate the peas touched...literally.

Slippery Elm for Better Pet Digestion This article has the soup/tea recipe and does not mention adding honey.

Yes the Dogs Naturally syrup recipe says to add honey. Is there an issue with that? I wouldn't see a need to add honey unless it was to make it palitable for the dog.

No, no issue. Raw organic is good thing

Wouldn't you know now that I have the slippery elm, the dosage and recipes She is having good poops today and eating again (albeit home cooked vs. raw) and hasn't vomited since early am. Her usual playful self.
I will be ready for next time, which should be in about a week and a half based on the last 6 weeks.

Syrup
Recipe: Mix 1 rounded teaspoon of slippery elm powder in 1 cup cold water, bring to boil while stirring, turn down heat, stir and simmer 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, add 1 tablespoon of honey and let it cool.
Dosage: For dogs under 25 lbs, give 1 to 2 tbsp; 25-50 lbs, 2 to 4 tbsp; 50 lbs and over, give ¼ to ½ cup. Dose 4 times a day.

It was in Mary Beth's first link

I think there's slippery elm in Carmen's Feedsentials. That's very palatable to dogs, so it might be a way to get it into a picky eater.
