I tried an all natural medicine for my cats bladder problem years ago. She ended up with the worse case of Diarrhea . Took the bottle to my vet. She read the ingredients and said it was due to the slippery elm. Stopped it and the Diarrhea stopped.I really don't know if Feeby is nauseous or not, but she is so very picky about her food nowadays. For her 'breakfast', which if it is a food she likes, she will eat 3/4 of a 3oz can within a couple of hours. But, after that, she sits in front of her food bowl during the afternoon, I guess waiting for 'something different'. I have tried all kinds of different foods, as well as various toppers, and now even FortiFlora. None of it makes a significant difference.
So, my next step is slippery elm. For any of you who are using it for nausea, do you give it with food or not? I have a read a few articles that say it isn't as effective if not given at least 1/2 hour before a meal. And, others say not to give it with meds - but, no one says what meds. I have also read that giving it with food mostly works on diarrhea - which she does not have, so I don't want to 'mess with something that doesn't need to be messed with'. But, I have also read about many who have had success with curbing nausea even when given with foods.
What do you all do? Thanks.
