If your dog (or cat) has an upset stomach, symptoms can vary from the occasional windy 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 expert advice. This will allow anything serious to be diagnosed, treated or even ruled out.
Dog supplements such as the Dorwest Herbs Tree Barks Powder work as a digestive aid for dogs to reduce acute intestinal absorptive disorders, compensate for maldigestion and chronic pancreatic insufficiency. Tree bark can also be used during periods of, and recovery from, acute diarrhoea. Here are 5 reasons why we recommend Tree Barks Powder for dogs when they have an upset tummy.
1. Pure slippery elm for dogs
The Dorwest Tree Barks Powder for dogs 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 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. Our Dorwest Tree Barks Powder coats and soothes the digestive tract and stomach (emollient 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 one of the many well-known natural supplements for dogs and has been used for years both as a digestive aid for dogs and for weaning puppies or kittens. Not only to ensure they get the very best out of any food they are eating but also because tree bark is incredibly nutritious in its own right.
4. Easy to give
Our Tree Barks 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 little ‘honey balls’ with it, great if your pet has a sweet tooth or is a little fussy!
Tree bark for dogs can help your pet whether their digestive issue is a one off (often due to something they shouldn’t have eaten!). It is also an ideal digestive aid for dogs if 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, Dorwest Tree Barks Powder is essential for the dog cupboard!

My 3 year old bitch has to have her anal glands done every 2 weeks,She has soft stools most of the time,Can tree Barks Powder help firm her stools,as I was told because of soft stools the anal glands can’t empty properly.
Great article! I didn’t know about this slippery elm or should I say it’s my first time to hear this. So, I researched this online and found some helpful articles, and I discovered that it’s good for the dog’s digestion, which is very useful for my canine. I am just wondering how much dosage do I need to serve for my canine? Is it safe for the dog who has an allergy? Can anyone enlighten me? Thank you anyway for such an informative post, I’d like to share this as well https://drmartypets.com/slippery-elm-for-dogs/ perhaps it might be helpful.
Hi Angel, yes Slippery Elm is in our Tree Barks Powder and helps with digestion and intestinal disorders in dogs. We would recommend giving 1tsp of our Tree Barks Powder per 10kg of your dog’s bodyweight and this dose can be split between morning and evening meals. Our herbal products are gentle and 100% natural so should not have any interaction but it would depend on what allergy your dog has. If you’d like to discuss things further you can always call our product advisor on 01308 897272- The Dorwest Team
May I know if Tree Bark Powder can be feed daily?
I have 2 dog that has following issue:
1. 12 Yr cocker who on and off have loose stool , digestive issue, easily gassy stomach
2. 7yr poodle which is on long term antibiotic due to some virus and we need some probiotic supplement to soothen his stomach.
Does Tree Bark Powder able to help them?
Hi Shianne, yes you can give Tree Barks Powder everyday for as long as necessary- It is perfect for one off occasions or on a long term basis. It will have your 12 yr old Cocker as it firms up stools and slows the passage of food down which increases absorption of nutrients. Tree Barks Powder is also a good product for your 7yr old poodle as it can be given long term and support the digestive system. If you’d like more advice, do give us a call on 01308 897272 or drop us an email at email@example.com- The Dorwest Team
I have s bitch that had guardia. I feel she is not getting the nutrients from her food. Eats a great meal but doesn’t seem to put on weight.
Hello Catherine, the Tree Barks Powder will help to slow down the passage of food therefore increasing the absorption of nutrients from her food. You may also want to look at the Keepers Mix with its abundance of minerals and vitamins! However, due to no weight gain we would recommend to seek advice from your vet in case there is anything underlying- The Dorwest Team
Is tree barks powder good for puppy with IBS
Hi Josie, Yest our Tree Barks Powder can be given from weaning 🙂
Hi I a couple of weeks ago purchased your tree bark powder. I had a very small female spyhnx cat that had diarrhoea so I was giving this to her. I end of last week she became very constipated and she had to have 2 sedated enemas. I am I bits because I am blaming myself that she never recovered and she was put to sleep this morning. I feel guilty that she was only 4 months old and that I have overdosed her on tree bark. Please could you relieve my mind that this doesn’t cause colon problems and I wouldn’t have been able to overdose her. She only weighed 700grams. Kind regards a blubbering wreck Lisa Restell
