Does slippery elm really help pets with liver disease?


Answer by  Beth5912 (14)

Yes, slippery elm can help pets with many ailments. Usually one of the symptoms of liver disease is an upset digestive tract. Cats will sometimes vomit and/or have diarrhea. Slippery elm helps to soothe and coat the digestive tract so that food can then be passed through more easily. Slippery elm also has been know to help firm up stools.

The jury is out on whether slippery elm will help with liver disease; any evidence for relief of liver disease is anecdotal.
