What to do for Dog Digestive Issues? - Silver Lining Herbs

Dog digestive issues can be a stinky situation. In our blog titled Slippery Elm Bark for Dogs, the article goes into detail about how a canine’s digestive system works, and the benefits of the herb, slippery elm. However, as great as slippery elm is, imagine what a blend of herbs specific to your dog’s digestive system would do! Let’s dive into Silver Lining Herbs #30 Digestive Support and how it works to support your dog’s digestive system, naturally.

How do you know if your canine is experiencing digestive issues?

The most common signs your dog is having digestive issues may include one or more of the following:

  • Loss of Appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Gas or bloating
  • Decrease in activity
  • Signs of pain in stomach area

Be aware that some canine breeds are more prone to digestive issues, for instance a Yorkie or Scottish Terrier, so make sure you research your dog’s breed.

What to do for Dog Digestive Issues?

Silver Lining Herbs’ #30 Digestive Support contains an array of beneficial herbs to support your dog’s digestive health for the above mentioned and more!

Among the herbs that are beneficial for dog’s digestive issues are:

Cascara, a mild laxative, that also helps stimulate normal liver function and flow.
Corn Silk, a mild diuretic that soothes the urinary tract and dissolves stones.
Myrrh, an antimicrobial and anti-parasitic herb.
Psyllium, which is soothing to the bowels- promoting their regular function, and removes toxins from the gut.
And of course, our mainstay, Slippery elm! A wonderful soother and healer of any tissue it contacts. Protecting and healing to the urinary and GI, and respiratory tract.

Just like humans, what a dog’s diet consists of is also important as food sensitivities are quite common. The most likely culprits for your dog’s digestive issues include lack of sufficient fiber, certain proteins, and too much fat. Sometimes, it may be reasonable to put your dog on a bland diet while supplementing with our #30 Digestive Support. Putting them on a diet of plain cooked chicken and rice, or even a little canned pumpkin, for a short time will help.

We know that you know your pet the best, and we are here to help you make the best choices for their well-being so that they can enjoy a happy and healthy life.
