Digestive issues in your dog (or cat) can vary from the occasional windy or gurgly tummy to diarrhoea, pancreatic insufficiency or something more serious.  The most important point is if you are at all concerned please visit a veterinary professional for their expert advice. This will allow anything serious to be diagnosed, treated or even ruled out.

Tree Barks Powder is specifically used to reduce acute intestinal absorptive disorders, compensate for maldigestion and chronic pancreatic insufficiency.  Also to be used during periods of, and recovery from, acute diarrhoea. Here are 5 reasons why Tree Barks Powder is perfect to help!

1. Pure Slippery Elm and White Poplar bark

Tree Barks powder consists of just 2 ingredients, 90% finely powdered Slippery Elm bark and 10% White Poplar bark. We use absolutely no fillers and the quality of these two ingredients meet the European Herbal Pharmacopoeia standards. We source both ingredients from their native home in North America.

2. The special way in which it works!

This fine fluffy powder is actually very mucilaginous or glutinous. This means that when you mix it in with a fluid such as water or becomes almost blancmange like, hence the name ‘Slippery’ elm. Tree Barks Powder coats and soothes the digestive tract and stomach (Emolient action)  as it moves through the system. This helps support the absorption of nutrients, firming stools and easing discomfort.

 3. Perfect for pups all the way to the veterans

Slippery Elm powder is very well known, and has been used for years both convalescing animals and also weaning puppies or kittens. Not only to ensure they get the very best out of any food they are eating but also because Tree Barks is incredibly nutritious in it’s own right.

4. Easy to give

This powder can easily be mixed into their normal food, or even mix it into some live yoghurt for a natural pro-biotic too.  We also have had a customer making some little ‘honey balls’ with it, great if your pet has a sweet tooth or is a little fussy!

5. Flexibility

Tree Barks Powder can help your pet whether their digestive issue is a one off (Often due to something they shouldn’t have eaten!), or they struggle intermittently with non-specific digestive issues.  Keep a tub in the house to have ready to use when it is necessary or give regularly to keep everything under control. Either way, this is an essential for the dog cupboard!
