Life saving Review
By: Tash This genuinely saved my pointers life. She had chronic diahorrea for 6 months and was diagnosed with chromes / IBD. She was up 5 times a night we tried everything - steroids different foods etc and we nearly lost her when her weight went down to just 16 kilos. It was awful. This product was recommended by a friend and after using just a level teaspoon in every meal after just a day I noticed a difference. Used along with an amazing pro-biotic called VL3 she's now on amazing form.

I rang and the lady was very helpful so i ordered the Tree bark powder there and then. It was delivered the very next day. My cat can be a bit fussy but ate it mixed in with her usual wet food. The next day she was solid i was really impressed but has been a bit up and down since but it hasn't been a week yet so still seeing how it goes. My cat is now getting a bit more fussy about eating it. Date: 10/07/2014 09:59:43 Rating: 4 / 5 Ab Fab!

Within a week poo was becoming more normal and only twice a day. She became happier and healthier gaining twice her body weight. Continued for over one year now. Brilliant results healthy dog no drastic vet exploration. Date: 31/12/2013 22:23:17 Rating: 5 / 5 Tummy problems. Review By: Anon. I was told to get Tree Barks Powder for my cat that we got from a shelter. We had big problems with diarrhoea and also tummy problems. We spent a lot of money on vets fees and tests then we got Tree Barks Powder and after 1 week we had no diarrhoea and no rumbling tummy. I bless the day I was told about your selves. Many thanks from a grateful cat owner and cat. Date: 06/12/2013 11:28:14 Rating: 5 / 5 'A beacon of hope' Review By: zena Our boy Bodie was diagnosed with food intolerance some months ago. His condition seemed very difficult to control my local pet shop recommended 'Tree Bark Powder' but unsure I contacted Dorwest themselves. They have been a great source of reassurance! And Bodie has made it through the last 2 week without an episode. That's pretty amazing in our book we use it in a morning with fat free natural bio yogurt and a drizzle of honey he eats it up no problem. The change in him is fantastic! My boys back :-) Date: 26/09/2013 19:28:51 Rating: 5 / 5 Diarrhoea Review By: M Bowker I decided to try the Tree Barks Powder as I have been concerned about my dog Mac’s inability to gain weight and his digestive problems. In the 18 months that I have had him there has been no consistency with regard to his faeces. He could go up to 6 times a day and it was rarely firm ranging from medium soft to liquid on some occasions. I had begun tests at the vets and he was on an extremely expensive dog food. Since I have been giving him your Tree Barks Powder he now goes around 3 times a day and it is firm every time he has even gained half a kilo and people have commented on how he appears to be happier! I am really pleased with the product and will be ordering more and will recommend it to others.

I had been battling with Daisy’s tummy for weeks I kept getting her better and then back came the diarrhoea again there had been several dogs with this problem and Daisy just kept picking up the bug again. The Tree Barks Powder was wonderful and improvement was soon visible and at the end of 6 days she was completely better. Hooray! Thanks again.
