Antibiotics
Completed 1/4tsp Tylan twice a day. After a long battle with SIBO (17 weeks in all). The occasional imbalance redressed with Tylan for 7 days for a mild occurrance or 30-45 days (with gradual weening) for more severe episodes since stabilising.

Enzymes
Currently on Creon Forte (25 000). Enzyplex (ineffectual plant-based supplement only) discontinued. 

Diet
2 cups of Taste of the Wild High Prairie Canine Formula kibble per day over two meals (now she's stable); 1-2 meaty bones (beef spine) per month; small pieces of natural dehydrated beef or pork liver treats for training/agility/fun.

B12

Hi there,

I live in Adelaide and see you do also? Our girl Zara has been diagnosed with EPI a couple of weeks ago and I was hoping to get yiur opinion on a vet in Adelaide you'd recommend? As so few have dealt with EPI and its only thru this website I was able to get a quicker diagnosis and get her onto creon, as enzyplex was originally recommended with little effect.

Kind regards,
Rachel

Hi there Ruth and the beautiful Bella (our last almost 17 year old pup was a Bella too)

Thanks for the Lulu comps and yes she knows it [roll eyes]. Hope the B12 kicks in soon.

Good news on the poop front, bad on the corn chips :-(. Lightening is right!

Re meaty bones, yes we give Lulu meaty bones regularly. they're beef spine or neck, very little fat although enough to help not hinder. I posted a picture in a thread last month, thought you might be interested in it and the info therein...http://www.epi4dogs.com/apps/forums/topics/show/7146008

Lulu is a beautiful girl.
Once we get the B12 sorted I hope we can go onto the tablets.
Do you find bones o.k, I would love to give Bels a bone.
Bells poo is now like a proper formed dog poo, apart from when she pinched some doritos ! she is as quick as lightning and we are trying to train the children and their friends to watch where they leave food.
thanks,
Ruth

What can I say when she gets her own fan email from the other side of the world! Even when we're on the beach (which is quite often at the moment) I lose count of how many people come up to us spontaneously to say how pretty she is and what breed is she etc etc. I only tell them if they throw her frisbee for her which I'd send you a picture of but the comments section won't let me! Have to save it for the forums I guess as of course there aren't enough pictures of Lulu on there y'know ;-p

She actually doesn't look like this at the moment. This was Taya at 10 months before she lost all her weight. I am hoping to get my beautiful girl back. She has very little energy and is miserable. I have stopped walking her because she has not been managing. I have become poo obsessed trying to beat her to them. She was to have exploratory surgery today, but I talked to the vet 2 days ago and cancelled as we now will give Creon a go.
Thanks for your support.
