Can I give my dog slippery elm? Slippery elm is a safe and non-toxic herb and does not have any direct side effects in canines. Because of its mucilage quality, however, it needs to be given separately from other medications your dog may be taking. Rarely, dogs may show an allergy to the herb.
How long can you give slippery elm to a dog? Keeps seven or eight days. Give a teaspoon of syrup (5 cc) per 10 pounds of body weight five minutes before a meal to minimize diarrhea, or to soothe and heal mouth ulcers.
Can you give dogs slippery elm every day? “Dosages of slippery elm for dogs vary,” says Dr. Osborne. “Some pet parents give 100 milligrams per 10 pounds, and many canine inflammatory conditions require giving slippery elm two to four times daily.” Of course, always consult with your veterinarian before giving any medication to your pet, she says.
