      I found that over time, all of Pepper's medications & supplements were
      upsetting her stomach. SEB soothes the stomach and helps relieve the
      discomfort. I mixed a small pinch in with her food and also added a bit of
      water since it tends to absorb a lot of water. That way, the food didn't
      get too "dry" in comparison to its normal moisture content.

      I can't say that it's recommended with specific medications - just that it
      helps with the stomach upset that some of them cause.

      Since SEB coats the digestive tract, you don't want to give it shortly
      before giving medication (about an hour) since it will lessen the amount of
      medication that gets absorbed.

      I bought mine in bulk from a local health food store. They have a bin of
      the Frontier brand and you just take what you want. You can also buy it in

      I was digging through some of the posts looking for what this is for
      specifically, since Cameron's appetite is way WAY down since he added
      diltiazem twice a day to his atenolol. I did get the vet to agree to
      keeping him on 7.5 mg 2x/day instead of ramping up to 15 mg - we are
      supposed to stay at this dose for a week and reevaluate - apparently
      there's another med that may sit better with him. But will Pepcid or
      SEB help bring back my guy's appetite?

      Thank you,
