Scour-Aid Natural Pet Diarrhea Treatment
Scour-aid, an all natural dry product, can be either top-dressed, mixed into food/feed, or mixed in water or milk.
Scour-Aid’s main ingredient is bentonite, a finely ground clay that traps water, toxins, viruses, bacteria, radiation, heavy metals, and other small particles.
It does this by actually pulling them into its porous body and keeping them there even after it has left the animal body. Unlike pectin, which is another ingredient in Scour-aid, it isn’t broken down by microorganisms and is inert to the animal body.
Scour-aid can be used internally for the treatment of diarrhea and externally (as a thick paste) on cuts and abscesses.
Scour-aid works in both dogs and cats and controls diarrhea no matter whether it is viral, bacterial, or protozoan in origin.
It should be used in conjunction with MSE Natural Defense.
Like pectin, bentonite is a quick fix. It does not necessarily address the original problem, which is often stress. Together with MSE Natural Defense, it can stop the loss of valuable electrolytes and allow reestablishment of the indigenous microflora.
Like pectin, bentonite can only work while it is in the body. It has no residual effects. Feeding it more often promotes constant diarrhea control.
