Diarrhea Relief for dogs and cats contains the perfect blend of organic herbs, soluble fibers and probiotic organisms to help relieve symptoms of diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome and other similar conditions. Diarrhea can be caused by a number of different factors, however, they all produce the same results: a loose watery stool, irritation to the GI tract and the loss of beneficial organisms that inhabit the mucosal lining.
Our Diarrhea Relief formula is the most complete formula available for dogs and cats and the only one that contains a specialized species of bacteria, bacillus coagulans, that research indicates helps relieve symptoms more quickly. There is nothing else like it, or more effective, for your animal.
What to Look for in a Superior Diarrhea Remedy
✓ Natural Ingredients
Natural ingredients are going to be gentler on your animal's body when compared to synthetic chemical ingredients or medications. The proper natural constituents are able to provide the body with what it needs to heal and get better. This is in direct contrast to synthetic ingredients or medications that can be especially hard on the liver and kidneys. Medications are also designed to have a symptom suppressing action in line with the principles of allopathic medine which is to create a diagnoses and then use drugs to suppress symptoms. Using this course of action can never result in true healing and is not meant to.
✓ Organic Herbs
Our formula contains certified USDA organic herbs. Research shows organic herbs have higher amounts of important nutrients as opposed to conventionally raised plants. Organic farming methods are also better for the environment and of course do not have the levels of residual pesticides that conventionally grown herbs can have. We also do not use wild crafted herbs in our formulas as this practice can damage wild populations of herbs and you do not necessarily know where the herbs are coming from or have been grown. Instead, we prefer to be on the safe side and only obtain herbs from USDA certified organic farms.
✓ No Unhealthy Additives
Our formula is made with all-natural, whole food ingredients. Absent are the fillers that increase packaging bulk and "flow agents" that make manufacturing faster and easier. Ingredients we avoid, but many of our competitors do not, include lactose, magnesium stearate, maltodextrin, stearic acid, calcium stearate, scorbyl palmitate, silicon dioxide, and microcrystalline cellulose among others.
✓ Uses only Human Grade Ingredients
Our products are manufactured using human grade ingredients. In the pet industry this is far from the rule as many companies use pet quality ingredients, those considered "not fit for human consumption".
✓ Uses Fresh, High Quality Ingredients
We purchase our ingredients from some of the most highly regarded companies in their respective fields so you and your animals are ensured the finest quality supplements. In addition, we purchase in small quantities to make sure the products we provide to you are fresh and bursting with important nutrients. This is in direct contrast to many other products on the market that can spend a year or longer sitting in non-climate controlled warehouses before they even get to you.

About the Organic Ingredients in this Formula
Slippery Elm - The combination of astringent and mucilaginous qualities make this a revered medicinal herb for inflammation within the digestive tract.
Psyllium Seed Husks - One of the best sources of soluble fiber that helps to lubricate the digestive tract and provide bulk to stool by absorbing excess water in the colon.
Chia Seeds - A very nutritious food that is high in fiber and omega 3 fatty acids. This little superfood has the ability to absorb 10-12 times its weight in water and this is a good reason why they are included in this formula.
Rosemary Leaf - Antispasmodic, carminative and calming properties make this herb a perfect choice for irritable bowel issues.
Chamomile Flowers – Combines well with rosemary to ease spasms, expel gas and reduce inflammation in the digestive tract.
Fennel Seed - An herb generally enjoyed by dogs and cats. This respected digestive aid will help to gently, but effectively, expel gas in cases of colic and bloating.
Bacillus coagulans - A lactic acid producing bacteria that exhibits characteristics typical of both Lactobacillus and Bacillus. This bacteria helps to quickly replace beneficial organisms that are flushed out of the digestive tract due to diarrhea and also helps to outcompete pathogenic organisms that may be contributing to diarrhea symptoms.

Our miniature schnauzer (AJ) has inflammatory bowel disease as the result of an extended treatment of strong antibiotics for a very severe upper respiratory infection. As part of immediately changing his diet, we put him on diarrhea relief, and he gets it with his meals five days per week. The diet change could have been the sole benefit for him, but personally, we believe that the Diarrhea Relief is a significant contribution to his remission. After putting him on this product along with his new diet, seven months ago, he has not had ONE incident of diarrhea. I know all of the ingredients from personal use at one time or another, and it is an outstanding combination of herbal ingredients, which, when combined, act as a powerful remedy for diarrhea.
