Tree Barks Powder was developed for acute intestinal absorptive disorders and having highly digestible ingredients and a low level of fat it can be given during periods of, and recovery from, acute diarrhoea as it will help the system get back to normal. Diarrhoea is nature’s way of cleansing the body and unless it is persistent, with vomiting or causing undue distress it should be allowed to run its course if possible. Fast for 24 hours and afterwards gradually introduce small quantities of plain food.
It is important, however, to consult your veterinary surgery if diarrhoea persists for more than a few days. The homoeopathic remedy Merc Viv 15C may also be useful.
Tree Barks Powder also helps to soothe the intestinal tract whilst slowing the passage of food to ensure maximum nutrients are absorbed while also firming the motions, so is very useful in other acute intestinal disorders such as pancreatic insufficiency.
For most digestive problems it is advisable to feed a low fat white protein diet and to give this in several small meals rather than one big meal per day. Digestive Tablets are ideal for those that suffer from 'grumbly' windy stomachs and also flatulence, the unique combination of ingredients really help to settle upset stomachs.
"I decided to try the Tree Barks Powder as I have been concerned about my dog Mac's inability to gain weight and his digestive problems. In the 18 months that I have had him there has been no consistency with regard to his faeces. He could go up to 6 times a day and it was rarely firm, ranging from medium soft to liquid on some occasions. I had begun tests at the vets and he was on an extremely expensive dog food. Since I have been giving him your Tree Barks Powder he now goes around 3 times a day and it is firm every time, he has even gained half a kilo and people have commented on how he appears to be happier! I am really pleased with the product and will be ordering more and will recommend it to others." Marie Bowker, Aston Under Lyne
