Animals with symptoms of Intestinal conditions can be diagnosed with names of having:
Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBS, IBD)
Spastic Colon (spams of the stomach/colon) which are all or most often brought on or made worse from any type of stress or stressful events, overuse or sensitive to chemicals (i.e. vaccines, wormers, heartworm, etc) Some animals are more sensitive to others and are prone to digestive disorders and inflammations, due to a weakened immune system from prolonging stress - allowing intestinal parasites and bacteria like giardia and campylobacter. Colitis, IBS, and spastic colon or general inflammation of the colon (large intestine) cause diarrhea in dogs and cats.
Colitis is an inflammation or irritation of the colon or large intestine and, you guessed it: it commonly causes diarrhea in our furry friends. Colitis can be acute (meaning it comes on suddenly) or chronic (lasting several weeks or longer, or recurring). There are several potential causes of colitis.
Intestinal parasites such as roundworms, whipworms, hookworms, and Giardia
A secondary reaction to antibiotics and many other medications
Dietary intolerance or allergy
Dietary indiscretion, such as eating grass, garbage, or people food
Inflammatory and irritable bowel disease (IBD)
Bowel cancer in older dogs
Dogs with colitis often have fresh, red blood and/or mucus in their stools.
They may strain to defecate and go more often than normal. In some cases, your dog may seem constipated and strain without producing any feces. With acute colitis, your dog might show no other signs of being sick except diarrhea or straining to defecate.
With chronic colitis, you could notice poor appetite, weight loss, and general lethargy.
2. Mucus colitis
A common gastrointestinal disorder involving an abnormal condition of gut contractions (motility) and gut sensation (hypersensitivity) characterized by abdominal pain, bloating, mucous in stools, and irregular bowel habits with diarrhoea or constipation or alternating diarrhoea and constipation.
Important supplements to include in your dog's meals - in conjunction with herbs and homeopathic remedies are:
- Colostrum Powder and Probiotic Powder ( e.g ProBiotica 12 Powder by SeekingHealth - is one of the best and potent brand)
for repairing the flora in the gut. Since colostrum can decrease IBS (leaky gut syndrome) ulcerative colitis etc i.e. intestinal permeability and enhance the assimilation of nutrients, using colostrum as a foundation supplement can enhance the bioavailability of nutrients and protect the digestive tract from toxins and pathogenic invaders. This effect can also be increased when combined with probiotics powder from the health food store. (I buy my powders and capsules from New Zealand website).
Feline: 1/4 teaspoon in meals.
Small to Med to Large Canine: Mix in 1 teaspoon of goats milk or coconut milk - second best option is food.
- Magnesium (mineral)
While both "magnesium citrate" and "magnesium oxide" are useful as laxatives, magnesium citrate may have one advantage. According to University of Maryland Medical Center, magnesium citrate is better absorbed in the body than other forms of magnesium, suggesting that it may work more effectively.
If your pet has chronic or acute attacks or is elderly?
We would also suggest having on hand the HAMPL Gastric Distention (bloat) formula and HAMPL Fast Solution (136) formula and HAMPLCramp formula(code 267) for fast emergency action, especially needed for older pets that need extra help as body is more sluggish and you notice your pet has some cramping or spasms in stomach - colon area use in conjunction with the HAMPL Colitis formula set.
Complete repair of Colitis pain using the natural formula's which are an effective natural solution to internal colon conditions like Colitis which soothe, repair the mucous membrane of the bowel and large and small intestines.
Chronic or Acute state causing diarrhea, pain in the abdomen from chronic inflammation of the large intestine (colon). If your pet has been diagnosed with possible "Ulcerative" colitis (IBS). i.e. Boxers are known to acquire these conditions. Refer to: (099) HAMPL Ulcerative Colitis Set (which has the Slippery Elm powder included in set)

What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
(c)“NUTRITIONAL Mix ” Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) Note: always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix. Felines or small animals: make up 1 cup of mixture, adding approx. a pinch of some type of Green powder (alkaline powder) or Chlorella powder (cleansing of toxins) or 1/4 Teaspoons of Slippery elm powder (to mask the taste) with 1 teaspoon of herbs if you are having to also give herbal medicines (i.e. brown liquid) Med to large animals: add twice to three times the amount.
DOSING: Feline or small animal: using an oral syringe draw up 1ml and gently small sips. Or add a teaspoon to meals if they don’t mind eating it with meals (mix well into food) Do not put in Fridge. Room temp is best as too cold is dislike by felines.
DOSING: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat: try mixing well into food and hand piece before feeding main meals. Or dose same as suggested for felines, but add three times as much herbal medicines and vitamins to 1/2 cup of water or (unsweetened) apple sauce or apple juice.

CONVALESCING ..can been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids or not eating very well. ~ Add a small amount of powder to the mix to enough to make a runny liquid mix, if you put too much of the powder it will become thick and gluggy, if this happens you will need to add more liquid to it.
