Some Treatment options
If diarrhoea has only just commenced and there is no smell associated
with it, I recommend a product called SB Pro: a biotherapeutic supplement featuring
Saccharomyces boulardii – a clinically proven agent that competitively inhibits Candida albicans and stimulates secretory IgA production. Saccharomyces boulardii is a non-colonising yeast specieswhich is not related to the Candida spp. SB quickly establishes itself in the gastrointestinal tract. On cessation of therapy it is no longer detectable after 2-4 days. SB produces lactic acid and B vitamins,
and as it becomes established, crowds out unfriendly strains of yeast. When given along with probiotic bacteria such as protexin, SB provides a symbiotic treatment regime for the gastrointestinal tract xix
Bentonite for treating diarrhoea in mammals
Bentonite is not a mineral but a commercial name for montmorillonite, the active mineral in many medicinal clays which come from weathered volcanic ash. This name derives from Montmorillon, France, where the medicinal mineral was first identified. Sometimes mineralogists also use the termsmectite.
A VOLCANIC DETOXIFIER – Bentonite, a medicinal powdered clay is one of the most effective natural intestinal detoxifying agents available and has been recognized as such for centuries by nativepeoples around the world. Liquid clay contains minerals that, once inside the gastrointestinal tract,are able to absorb toxins and deliver mineral nutrients to an impressive degree. Liquid clay is inertwhich means it passes through the body undigested.
A medicinal study by Frederic Damrau, M.D., in 1961 (Medical Annals of the District of Columbia)
established clearly that bentonite can end bouts of diarrhoea. When 35 individuals (average age 51)
suffering from diarrhoea took two tablespoons of bentonite in distilled water daily, the diarrhoea
was relieved in 97% of the patients in 3.8 days, regardless of the original cause of the problem (allergies, virus infection, spastic colitis, or food poisoning). According to Dr. Damrau, bentonite is “safe and highly effective” in treating acute diarrhoea.
Technically, the clay first adsorbs toxins (heavy metals, free radicals, pesticides), attracting them to its extensive surface area where they adhere like flies to sticky paper; it then absorbs the toxins, taking them in the way a sponge mops up a kitchen counter mess.
Instructions for use:
Mix 1 tsp in a cup of hot water and let steep for 5 minutes. The grey water on top is what you want
and you add 1 to 5ml per 100ml milk formula depending on severity of diarrhoea.
Can be added to milk formula just before feeding to calm the stomach and remove
Slippery elm powder
for inflammatory conditions of the digestive system, including diarrhoea. This herb
puts a soothing coat on inflamed mucous membranes from mouth to anus. It can also be made intoa paste and can also be used for bites, boils, abscesses, and ulcers.
Chamomile can be given as a tea for an inflamed digestive system. You can make an infusion and usethis water to make up milk formula.
For the past 15 years or so I have been formulating and prescribing herbal formulas for digestive upsets for wildlife in care.

What you will need
- Teat Moulds
- A wooden board to insert your moulds so they stand upright to dry
- Silicon. I buy my silicon from Dalchem here is the link to their website https://dalchem.com.au/
- Silicon dye if you want to add colour to the teats you make, also available from Dalchem

- chopstick for mixing silicon
- small containers such as medicine cups to use a drip cups, you could also use eggcups
Here is the link to my video which shows you how to make silicon teats.
This is the first video I have made so it is not perfect but will show you the steps involved in making the teats. My fantastic neighbour Bart Stenhouse, who is a talented musician filmed the video for me. If you want to listen to some great music then check out his site at the link below
I would love your feedback on this video. I will be posting it on my facebook page @WildlifeRehabSupplies. Feel free to share this video with your fellow wildlife carers.
I hope the video gives you the confidence to have a go at making the silicon teats and I am happy to answer any questions you may have

Stainless Steel Teat Moulds
We relocated from Queensland to #Northern Rivers at the end of May 2017 and our range of teat moulds have been unavailable for sale since then. I apologise once again for the very long delay. The building of our new shed has been completed and the electrician is almost finished wiring it up, so we will soon have power for a metal lathe and can get back into production.
Video on how to make latex teats coming soon …….
If you do not want to make your own teats or are not ready to make them at the moment, then you can order your teats from me in either silicon or latex.
Check out the teats page to see the wide range we have on offer wildlife teats
Orders are sent out promptly and we have many happy customers who are repeat buyers
if you are unsure of what to buy please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss your requirements
