slippery elm bark (drops)

I ordered the drops and need to find out how many per cup of water for an 85lb dog. Darkves? Should I also order the powder? I also went to a site that pm'd to me and I think I will be cooking Eli's diet from now and will be working with the lady from that site. Thanks to you know who you are.

I have only ever heard of using the powder. I stole the recipe/directions for you off my raw list:

Slippery Elm recipe:
Thoroughly mix 1 slightly rounded teasp. of slippery elm powder in 1 cup of cold water. Bring to a boil while stirring constantly. Then turn down the heat to simmer and continue to stir for another 2 to 3 minutes while the mixture thickens slightly. Take it off the heat.
For dogs: add 1 tsp. honey. dosage: 1/2 to 1 tsp. for small dogs, 2 tsps to 2 tablespoons for medium dogs and 3-4 tablespoons for large dogs.

I just went back and found your Eli to the vet thread. You mentioned that you had had Eli on a raw diet, but not a 100% raw diet.

I have a friend who was going to euthanize her young GSD bitch. She would eat her food, and go lie in her bed to wait for the pain. Bloody, explosive diarrhea all night. Rack of bones. As a very last ditch thing, she tried raw. Hailey is now close to fine some years later. She cannot have anything with any grain or it sets her back to the beginning. Not ANYTHING! Not rice, not oats, not even a kibble-sized bit... she had to quit taking Hailey to work with her, because her boss kept slipping Hailey tiny morsels of this or that, not believing such a small bit could matter... for her, it does. Just sayin'... if you haven't tried it 100%, you haven't really tried it.

Eli got a rare strain of coccidia from raw, he can't have raw bones or anything like that as it immediately sets him off since that time. Eli has the same symptoms as your friends GSD when he eats raw.

He does okay on his Acana grain free unless something triggers this but once triggered can not eat his dry food for weeks. He does well on fresh cooked sweet potato/brown rice and cooked meat so I'm sticking with that and will make my own batches of home cooked from now on. The Acana was easy to feed but now I think he needs food I cook. My vet agrees since he does so well on the home cooked diet. Luckily he gains weight and if I am careful with his diet he does okay.

A few years ago when I was researching raw diets, I found this site on UC, Davis: https://www.petdiets.com/Consult/default.asp

I've never used this service but it might help with Eli's diet

Slippery Elm Bark Powder is the best.................1 tablespoon sprinkled on food, if they will eat it, or mix with something yummy and give it to them...............once every 24 hours for a couple of days or until you see improvement.

if you need to use the tincture form, 4 to 5 drops once daily, depending on strength of tincture.............................is it in alcohol or glycerin?

Well what an odd coincidence. You are not here anymore Sam&mack :/- yet yours is the 1st post i come across thru google+ dt on this site that was recommended to me today while @the vet's.

Curious what our situation is going to involve as we are trying to get ph levels into the normal range from alkaline.

I was unable to access this site. Googled "UC Davis pet diets" and didn't come up with anything that looked like it might be it. Oh, well...

Is it urinary pH that is high? Both dogs, or only one? How high is high?
