Rated 5 out of 5 by Cherokee517 Works great. Not to be used long term.
This is a great product for short term use. It works well and quickly.
Slippery elm has a ton of benefits. But can interact with some meds. If used long term can eventually cause malabsorption of some nutrients. It's best to discuss with a vet (preferably a holistic vet when it comes to "alternative" treatments) the risk/reward using products containing slippery elm for a long time. I had considered using it daily for a dog I have with IBD. Then I was told of the potential for the aforementioned issues.
I use it when I know my dogs have been fed something new/different or when they have random idiopathic bouts of soft stool/diarrhea. I have never had to use it more than 1 day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandy777 when you have lost all hope.....
Ever since I adopted my rescue baby a year and a half ago, he has never had a good, solid stool. Upon adoption he was empirically treated for worms and parasites even though his stool tests were negative. I switched his food from Science Diet (what he was on at the shelter) to a grain free quality food from Honest Kitchen with small improvements, supplementing his diet with organic pastured chicken. I even tried enzymes and probiotics with disastrous results- worsening diarrhea. He has been treated for recurrent colitis and IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease). Multiple cycles of Cerenia and metronidazole later, here I am. I was desperate for this to work. I recieved this from FedEx 2 days ago. Since last night, he had the first solid poo! I know it's only been 2 days but I seriously almost cried when I picked up his poop and it wasn't a watery, mucoid pile that I couldn't even scoop up with a bag. I'm hoping it will keep working. This product did what immodium and antibiotics couldn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pdme It Works
I have a puppy that was having an issue with diarrhea. I gave her this in her food twice a day. It definitely helped. It did take about 2 days to see the best results though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mel5 So far it works
Our new 1 yr old rescue had the runs bad. Thought we'd try this and either its doing the trick or her gut finally settled. She likes the taste, too, which is a big plus. She couldn't stand Pepto and shook it all over when we tried to get some down her throat.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GiaM Does it really work
Does this really correct the medical underlying issue and cause of IBD and diarrhea or does it simply work by coating the stool to make it more firm? If this is the case, it can make us feel like we are making our pets better but in reality, there is still something wrong with their GI tract. It's kind of like taking an aspirin to mask the pain of headaches. We should be correcting the issue, not masking it as we can only live so long with chronic illness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by schelly123 This product worked in two days.
I am so happy with this product. I have also had the same issues with my Meshu as others have reported in their reviews. I tried all the same types of remedies, medications and limited ingredient food. This is the only thing that worked and in just two days. it's been nearly a year and still no diarrhea. I had to mix the dose with enough water to syringe it into the side of his mouth. Being careful not to shoot it down his throat so not to choke or asphyxiate him. A miracle product!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 4rescuepits It's magic!
After 7 days of very bad diarrhea, vet visits, meds, labs (which all came back good), home cooking and then prescription diet, I found this. After one dose she was back to normal. I will always have this in the house!! I even gave a half dose to our other dog who is notorious for soft but formed stool and it bulked her up wonderfully. This is now one of my top 5 necessary dog items.
