We purchased 1K and a 250mg sample of 6x enxyme powder from enzymediane.com for our family boxer last month; however, a vet specialist has corrected the diagnosis to IBD rather than EPI. As a result, we are interested in selling the enzymes below cost ($100 for $183 value) as we pursue different treatments. Reply back if you're interested or email directly at reyes795665@sbcglobal.net. We can arrange transportation in San Antonio or Austin, TX. Thanks, EPI team, for all the great work you do!

Hi.  There is a Yahoo IBD group you may want to join.  http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/IBDogs/  I am glad you found out what is really going on.  EPI and IBD do seem to mimic ea other.

Karen and Dar, thank you for your good wishes and support. We are still awaiting more specific instructions from the specialist but finally hopeful that Louie can return to good health. :-)

Another thing  you might want to do is contact Diane directly with regards to the enzymes you purchased from her......

Also.... glad to hear that you have a positive diagnosis now.... that is usually half the battle!  Good Luck!

Olesia, owned by Izzy-35lb SWD, Diagnosed at 1.5 years old - TLI results 1.3, Stable almost 8 yrs! Once stable, was able to reduce enzymes to only 1/2 tsp of Enzymes with each meal, but after almost 4 years of stabilization... had to increase the amount of enzymes to 3/4 teaspoon with each meal. Feed various grain-free kibble+real meat, 6x pancreatin enzymes from EnzymeDiane. I give 1 tsp of coconut oil one day and 1 tsp salmon oil next day, and also give canned sardines packed without salt or canned herring for extra omega oils.

In Feb 2013, Izzy developed a very serious condition called IMHA which she (thankfully) beat and is now in remission. We also discovered that now, at 8+ years old, she not only has EPI, but also Diabetes, Low Thyroid and High Cholesterol.  Izzy was able to receive excellent care because of the kindness of so many here on epi4dogs and  is currently  doing extra-ordinarily well. If anyone could spend a day with Izzy, they would never guess that she has any health problems!  Because of Izzy's concurrent conditions of Diabetes and High Cholesterol we had to make changes to our daily EPI routine. We had to alter the fiber, type of fiber and the fat content her diet. She was getting Annamaet Lean kibble plus a lean meat and did well on it....... but we have since switched again because of her diabetes to an all home-made diet which she does even better on and has even been able to reduce the Vetsulin (por-based insulin) dose from 9 units to 6 units... because of the diet change to all home-made i no longer worry about hypoglycemia- -she is much more even keeled with a diet of sweet potato+ a lean meat+coconut oil/fish oil+vitamins and bone meal. We tried Novolin N a human synthetic RNA insulin.... but Izzy did not do well on it. aside from all of Izzy's health issues.... she continues to wake up every day full of joy and a great sense of humor!

Got the diagnosis and are beginning treatment (a combination of Lymphocytic-Plasmacytic Enterocolitis and Eosinophilic Enterocolitis). I've requested membership in the IBD support group mentioned here, and the unused enzymes are now on their way to the Austin Boxer Rescue for use. Thank you all!

So glad you joined the IBD group...... i am sure they will be able to give you lots of suggestions that will help you and your pup. 


Thank you for donating the enzymes to the Austin Boxer Rescue....  rescue organizations can really use help with acquiring enzymes as they are so expensive and these organizations are usually financially strapped....


And hey Karen.... thank you for suggesting the IBD group!
