I recently took my cat for a check-up, to get an update on his kidney function. I had been giving him slippery elm for about a year at the time, and the benefits supposedly help with kidney function (and hairballs, among other things). Well, good news—for a cat of age 17—his numbers had improved! Not much, but enough that it was a wonder that a cat of his age could actually have improved at all.

There are also great benefits from slippery elm for us humans including GI issues, heart, inflammation, and of course kidney function. It is also loaded with important vitamins and minerals.
