Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I am familiar with using Slippery Elm Bark, so I can answer this question for Nala. Your question is if you should give it 4-5 times per day as recommended on the bottle or 2 times per day as per the veterinarian. Is that a correct summary?
There is a small deposit, but no extra fees to what you originally agreed. There is an option for a phone call, which is automatically offered by the website, but you do not have to accept it. I am able to answer your question without a phone call. Regarding Slippery Elm, this treatment is given as needed, but it is usually started at a low dose like twice daily. That is why you are seeing the discrepancy. Some cats are fussy about taking it in their food, and working up from the lower dose works better. Starting with twice daily and then working up to 4-5 times per day if necessary is recommended.
