Marlo’s Pet Wellness

Homewares + Lifestyle, Pets Stuff

All natural, human grade grade herbal remedy for dogs and cats with tummy issues.

Marlo’s Pet Wellness flagship product is Marlo’s Gut Health Powder.

This powder is packaged in Australia and we have reached out to a leading Naturopath to formulate a recipe using a proprietary blend of high quality human grade Milk Thistle Seed Powder, Dandelion Root Powder and Marshmallow Root Powder blended with the finest Appalachian wildcrafted Slippery Elm Bark Powder.

Benefits of Marlo’s Gut Health Powder

Slippery elm soothes and lubricates the mucous membranes that line the digestive tract. It may also provide aid in treatment for ulcers, gastritis, colitis and other inflammatory bowel problems.

It’s high in fiber, which can help normalise intestinal action. It can be used to relieve both diarrhoea and constipation.

Milk Thistle provides support to the liver and other vital organs to aid in long term health.  Since it is a powerful liver cleanser, it helps rebuild liver cells while removing toxins from the body that are processed through the liver.

Milk thistle is effective at naturally reversing the harmful effects of pesticides in the environment and food supply, heavy metals in the water supply, pollution in the air that we breathe and even poisons!

Marshmallow Root helps restore integrity of the gut lining by forming a protective layer around small junctions (avoiding leaky gut).

It may also be beneficial for inflammatory bowel diseases, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

Dandelion Root has many nourishing and healing properties for the digestive tract. The antioxidants in dandelion root have been shown to be supportive to the liver as well.

It also possesses antimicrobial properties that can help stop the growth of disease-causing bacteria.

All four herbs work in conjunction with one another to aid and offer relief to our dogs and this can be beneficial to cats or horses suffering with digestive disorders.

Marlo’s Story

On the 15th of July 2020 my best friend passed away after a very challenging year suffering from Pancreatitis, IBD and other gut issues. His name was Marlo.



Marlo was a Golden Labrador who came to me when he was 5 from a pet Rescue Organisation.

He had a rough start to his life and he came to me when I was going through a very traumatic period in my life so together we moved away from Sydney in 2009 and started a new life in Coffs Harbour.

In late 2019, Marlo started to show signs of pain, discomfort and just “ not himself”. Many trips to the vets later, it always led back to him having Arthritis in his back legs and spine so we continued to treat him as though this was all due to his advancing arthritis.

In early 2020, he started to display symptoms that are not in my opinion attributed to arthritis such as; restlessness, especially at night, sometimes he would arch his back, vomiting, but the worst symptom was diarrhoea and blood everywhere.

 It was so upsetting and to see him in pain, I just felt so useless and unable to help him.Finally, Marlo was diagnosed with Chronic Pancreatitis and Irritable Bowel Disease.

On the 15th of July 2020, my best friend passed away.

 Community & Support for Australian Pet Owners

I started to join Facebook groups to gather information and support for other dog parents going through a similar experience. I noticed that all these groups were based in U.K or the U.S. I also noticed that they had access to so much more products and low fat food then here in Australia. I also wanted to make available to Australian dogs a holistic gut remedy that was not available here and I knew that this would be a huge benefit to our fur babies who have gastro intestinal issues. When Marlo passed away I wanted him to leave behind his Legacy. He was such a caring and loving dog – so what better way then to bring more awareness, support, information sharing to Australia and a Natural remedy available to the Australian market to help our pets with digestive issues. So, this is how Marlo’s Gut Health Powder became an idea and was developed as a tribute to my boy Marlo.
