As Slippery elm is a mucilage, it could potentially decrease how much medicine your dogs body can absorb and marginally decrease its effectiveness, please speak with your Vet if your dog is currently on medication and you would like to give this product. Your Vet may recommend to give slippery elm bark at least two hours after taking another medication by mouth. Slippery Elm should be avoided in dogs with an active infection that has an elevated urinary pH, where struvite crystal formation may be a risk. No to be used in pregnant dogs.
