Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Hilton Herbs Slippery Elm Powder, including answers from our team.
Is slippery elm any good for the treatment of arthritis in dogs
Treatment of arthritis is not one of the properties that Slippery Elm is known for. It tends to be used on the skin or for digestive upsets. However it will certainly not do any harm if you wanted to try it.
Hilton herbs slippery elm . Is this product made from the inner or outer part of the bark ?
Hilton Herbs Slippery Elm Powder is a fine powder made from the inner bark of the Red Elm tree, from the USA.
Hi our 9 year old male Rottweiler has recently been diagnosed with colitis. Our vet has advised us to give him 4-6 small meals of chicken & rice a day instead of 2 large ones to help his gut & also given us probiotics to sprinkle in his food but I'm wondering if slippery elm will help him as well.
I agree with your vet's advice primarily, though if this fails after a good trial then you might have to try different ingredients for the main diet. Slippery Elm might help as well and is unlikely to cause any trouble, so you could add that too. However it is better not to change lots of things at the same time, so I would go for a week as per your vet first, then if response is inadequate, I would add the Slippery Elm and see what effect it has. There is always some trial and error involved with this type of situation. If that fails, your vet might suggest a completely different diet to try.
Hi, I have a dog in stage 4 renal failure. Active still and bright but doesn't want to eat. Currently giving Cerenia and just started Omeprazole which seem to help. Know that Cerenia isn't licensed for long term use so wondering if slippery elm might be helpfull instead? Thanks.
You would have to try Slippery Elm to see if it helps, this is something which is difficult to predict. I fear that your dog is going to need all the help it can get. If the Cerenia is more effective than anything else, I would be wary of stopping it, despite the licensing issue. However if your dog can manage without it, then certainly that would seem better. Most herbal remedies very in how well individuals respond, so they do need to be tried to find out.
My young beardie suffers with acid reflux, would this be a suitable supplement to keep her on long term to help with this problem please?
This is a safe product to give to dogs with problems affecting the digestive system. How effective it proves to be in any particular case is difficult to predict, but it would be safe to try and judge the effect yourself. There is a quite a good chance that you will feel that it helps your dog and reduces the symptoms if you try it.
Hello, I have seen that pure slippery elm bark is used for gastro-intestinal problems of cats. Is there any othe ingredient in Hilton Herbs SEB which makes it unsuitable for cats? thank you very much, Maria
There are no other ingredients which could be a problem for cats, but you need to be sure that you give a suitable dose for cats. As a company we do not recommend it for cats and we have no experience of this use, so you will have to check this for yourself. Your vet might be able to help.
can humans use this brand?
All the Hilton Herbs products are human grade, however, it is advised that they are only used on the animals which they have been marketed for.
