We did use slippery elm bark for Kessie, it seemed to give her some relief.  Unfortunately the lymphoma was too aggressive.

Do a search in this forum for the information, which was given me about it.

yes indeed SEB is very safe for cats/dogs/humans....it coats a soothes the mucosa of the intestinal track therefore its very good for constipation/diarrhea/IBD etc. also very good for stomach acid.
what problems is your kitty having?

You need to be careful what brand of products you use for cats though. the safest one I know of is from NOW FOODS (will give you a link) the products mustn't have any other ingredients, especially sugar/soy/salt/preservatives etc.
This is in powder form. boil some water and get a small jar. for every .5 teas of SEB add 2 Tbsps. hot water. stir and let sit for HALF AN HOUR than shake...it should be a thick gruel. by this time it should be cool enough to give kitty. use 3-5cc's(mls) 2-3x per day. via dropper.
Must give 1/2 hour before or after meals or medications so it doesn't interfere with absorption.

Thanks for the in-depth reply, I really appreciate it - I am just researching the stuff, so I thought to get some views from those who may have had hands on experience. slipperyelm dot biz was the first site I came across but need more info obviously. And thanks for the link you mentioned as well. Great reply.

good for you for doing research before ever taking anyones word on whats safe for our kitties....
I can't find a site with the info I'm looking for...other than a quote that I previously posted for someone else...and I'll add it on at the end.

I can tell you that all my info comes from a person that deals totally with cats and their health HOLISTICALLY...this person has saved many many cats over the years...her degree is in human research but that knowledge followed her to the healing of cats after loosing a very special pet of her own...she has researched everything to the smallest degree...and I assure you if she says its a great product than theres not the slightest doubt in my mind that it is. I have also use slippery elm bark (SEB) safely and continuously  for both my cats for a number of reasons...if I find an actual site I will send it along later....don't be afraid of this, ask your Vet even...most know of its healing qualities...although they prefer to write a prescription for an antibiotic or steroids...yuk.
heres the quote:

History:

Slippery Elm is a large, deciduous tree that is native to North America and grows in the moist, well-drained (but not waterlogged) woods of the eastern half of Canada and the United States. The tree may reach a height of sixty feet and may now also be found planted along streets, as well as in the forests throughout North America. Native American Indians were the first to discover the soothing qualities of the Slippery Elm and found that when the tree's inner bark comes in contact with water, the gummy substance (or mucilage) swells and produces a soothing, softening ointment and coating. Native Americans used it on skin wounds, and when it dried, it became a natural bandage, and they also wrapped Slippery Elm Bark around meat to prevent bacterial spoilage. The English settlers soon noticed its widespread use by Native Americans and included it into their medicinal applications for wounds and mouth. The Colonists also used the bark for the throat, urinary tract, bowel and gastric health. Slippery Elm Bark was even used during the American Revolution for gunshot wounds and in Valley Forge as a survival food. Mixed with water, Slippery Elm Bark makes a highly nutritious and soothing gruel for children and for sick people of any age, and the herb was once listed in the United States Pharmacopœia. Slippery Elm bark has a soothing and coating effect on any part of the body with which it comes into contact. The bark's exceptionally rich mucilage content is composed of easily digested, nontoxic, complex carbohydrates, and Slippery Elm Bark also contains alpha- and beta-sitosterol, campestrol, tannin, protein, phytosterol, polysaccharide, salicylic acid, selenium, silicon, calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, selenium, zinc, chromium, D-galactose, fat, fiber, fructose, glucose, beta-carotene and vitamins B-1, B-2, B-3 and C.
