Our Core Colitis Package for Dogs and Cats consists of the three supplements we consider to form the foundation of our Natural Colitis Protocol. This supplement package for dogs and cats with ulcerative colitis is a research-based protocol developed by a certified Master Herbalist working alongside a certified Canine Nutritionist. It is the most complete supplement protocol that supports dogs and cats with colitis* and from the feedback we receive we conclude the most successful available. It has taken more than a decade of experience working with animals to assemble.

This supplement package for colitis consists of Diarrhea Relief, our Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics Formula and Repair and Strengthen. You may follow the links to view the product pages for more information as well as individual colitis supplement ingredients. We have incorporated many years of research and experience working with animals to develop this colitis protocol for your dog or cat and we hope you are pleased with the results!

For further information on this condition please view our Natural Colitis Protocol. You may select from our list of other recommended supplements that can be found on our Colitis page to use in addition to our Core Colitis Package or rely on these three products alone. We are here to help so feel free to Contact Us if you need more assistance.

The Colitis Package is designed to get you started. After this initial purchase you may want to purchase products individually as they each will last varying lengths of time. After your animal's condition improves you may wish to upgrade the Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics to our Daily Multi Plus.

A complimentary Colitis Help Sheet is included with any package purchase!

1). Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics OR Daily Multi Plus

Either of these supplements will form an integral part of your animal’s long term nutrition plan. Often for animals with IBD/IBS/colitis we recommend to start with the Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics. This is because dogs and cats with this condition may be more sensitive to different ingredients in their diet. The Daily Multi Plus contains our digestive enzymes and probiotics blend as part of the formula along with many other ingredients. So, when your animal is feeling better you can move them up to the Daily Multi Plus or, if you feel your animal is not all that sensitive to new ingredients in their diet, you can just start with the Daily Multi Plus immediately.

How much should I give?

Digestive Enzymes and Probiotics:
Provide 1/8 teaspoon in each meal per 30 lbs. Mix with water so it is not dry. Serving size does not have to be exact. Err on the side of more rather that less.

Daily Multi Plus:
Provide 1/2 teaspoon in each meal per 30 lbs. Mix with water so it is not dry. Serving size does not have to be exact. Err on the side of more rather that less.

How long should I provide this supplement?
This supplement should be given with every meal for the life of your pet.

2). Diarrhea Relief

This is a very beneficial supplement for those animals with IBD/IBS/colitis. It features slippery elm bark that has astringent properties that will help to heal and tighten tissue reducing the amount of water being drawn into the intestines and thereby firming stool. Other herbs in this formula help to reduce inflammation and eliminate gas making your animal more comfortable.

How much should I give?
Provide 1/4 tsp in each meal per 15 lbs. Mix with a small amount of warm water prior to mixing with food or when in food dish. May safely use 2 - 3 times suggested serving for short periods when needed to eliminate diarrhea.

How long should I provide this supplement?
As stool firms, reduce dosage to suggested serving on container. Can safely use for the life of your animal taking one or two days off each week if this doesn’t result in a flare up. However, this shouldn’t be necessary as your animal heals and stool is normal. Keep Diarrhea Relief on hand so you have some available for flare ups.

3). Repair and Strengthen

While Diarrhea Relief primarily works to remedy loose stool, this supplement is the one formulated to repair the lining of the digestive tract. Because research shows that glutamine is very important to the repair and replication of the cells that line the GI tract we have included whey protein isolate that is a great natural source of this amino acid. The colostrum in this formula will help to speed healing while reducing inflammation and the addition of organic aloe vera provides additional healing and anti-inflammatory attributes. Many of our clients find that they need to continually use this supplement since when they try to remove it their animal relapses to some degree. See how it works with your dog or cat and use the minimum effective dosage as your animal’s condition improves.

How much should I give?
Provide 1/2 tsp per 20 lbs daily. Mix with a small amount of warm water and give to your animal 15 - 20 minutes before main meal either alone or in a small amount of favorite food. This allows the supplement to work on the digestive tract without competing with main meal.

How long should I provide this supplement?
Can safely use for the life of your animal taking one or two days off each week if this doesn’t result in a flare up.

Other Recommendations

Diet

We recommend a whole food diet for your dog or cat with this condition. This can be a commercial raw or cooked diet, involve a premix with your own raw or cooked meat or a home-prepared diet. If home-preparing please research how to do this properly and make sure to add a calcium source like our Seaweed Calcium. Read our article How to Feed Your Dog or How to Feed Your Cat in the Education Section of our website for more information.

Stomach Soother

This remedy is helpful for many animals, sparing them from a life of discomfort. The herbs in this formula help to relieve inflammation and alleviate gas making an animal much more comfortable when they have stomach upset. Initially, use this remedy 2 - 3 times per day by squirting the suggested dose directly in the mouth and your animal should start to feel better in a few minutes. In the future when your animal is better use Stomach Soother only when you notice signs of discomfort. Keep on hand so you have this remedy available when needed.

Herbal Digestive Tonic

Many animals with IBD/IBS/colitis have gastric insufficiency and this often contributes to their condition. This is because when there is not enough stomach acid (hypochlorhydria) food particles are not broken down properly and can then lead to inflammation in the digestive tract. The Herbal Digestive Tonic provides herbs extracted in organic apple cider vinegar that help to acidify the stomach to better break down food and stimulate the secretion of digestive juices and bile from the liver and gallbladder. Use in every meal for the life of your animal. Recommended for dogs only because cats may be opposed to the stronger smell and flavor of this formula.

Biopreparation F3

This is a highly regarded supplement that can greatly benefit those animals struggling with IBD/IBS/colitis. We recommend the F3+ Forte for this condition. Microalgae feed cells on a cellular level providing thousands of natural nutrients directly into cells without the need for digestion while helping cells detoxify and repair themselves. This can be placed in with meals, a little meatball made with a favorite food or in a little water used with a syringe. Follow the recommendations below for the life of your animal.

Under 15 lbs - 1/2 capsule 2x daily
15 - 30 lbs - 1/2 - 1 capsule 2x dail
30 - 50 lbs - 1 capsule 2x daily
Over 50 lbs - 1 capsule 2x daily and you may add a third capsule daily if you desire.

Antimicrobial Formula

Often a veterinarian will recommend an antibiotic “just in case”. This is because they are not sure what is causing your dog or cat’s condition. Because of the side effects that accompany these drugs and the unpleasant effect they can have on many animals we recommend you give the Antimicrobial Formula a try first. This supplement features herbs that support the immune system along with herbs that have strong antimicrobial activity. Very safe and effective without the potential damage to your animal that antibiotics can cause. Use this herbal remedy only if there is reason to believe there may be a pathogen present in the GI tract.

About Medications

While medications may have their time and place in an animal’s treatment, very often in the case of colitis we have seen them contribute to a worsening of the condition over time. This is because the short-term effect a steroid can have to make your animal feel better comes with the high cost of numerous side effects. In addition, drugs do not promote healing, they are designed to suppress symptoms. Suppressing symptoms may work in the short-term, but in the long-term the condition will progress and get worse and worse.

Other Concerns

Animals with colitis are usually more sensitive. This means that you should limit their exposure to chemicals in their food, water and environment. Limit or avoid unnecessary vaccinations, flea and tick products, heart worm medication and the use of household and lawn chemicals (like Roundup!) (see Education section).

Dog IBD Treatment Customer Testimonial

Hi there, my name is Friederich. I'm nine years young. My Mommy rescued me when I was two years old. I had been suffering with gastrointestinal issues for all my life until July of 2015 when I started taking supplements that my Mommy got from the Pet Health and Nutrition Center. I was also having back problems every Winter. I take the products in the Colitis Package plus BioPreparation micro algae and for my back, I take the amazing Elk Velvet Antler. Maria at the Pet Health and Nutrition Center also encouraged my Mommy to cook my food from scratch, which she has done for over a year now. I'm so much stronger now. I feel great, and I have a nice shiny coat for a nine year old red Doxie. The supplements my Mommy gets from the Pet Health and Nutrition Center are free of filler ingredients, so it's all pure goodness and fresh to boot!
I want to thank The Pet Health and Nutrition Center, and my Mommy for seeking out Maria to help me get healthy! I'm so grateful, and I am a very happy boy because of these two ladies!
