My horse has just come off a 30 day UG treatment. He is on Smart Digest Ultra, and doing well. I was thinking about adding slippery bark elm to this. How much and where is the best place to get it from? I know someone uses this on COTH forums, but I couldn't find the info!
I use slippery elm bark. When my oldster got a little ulcery recently from a joint med I tried on him, a tablespoon of slippery elm bark in his breakfast every day for 2 weeks brought his manure back to looking great again.
I certainly don't use it in conjunction with any another product, and I would suggest not doing so. If he's on the Smart Digest Ultra and doing well, perhaps its better to leave well enough alone. You don't know how slippery elm will interact with anything else he's eating. Smart Pack seems to use slippery elm in some of their products, but not in Smart Digest Ultra, perhaps there is a reason.
