Maya, 7 yr old GSD, diagnosed with EPI (TLi 1.5) 10/26/10. She has always been thin and I've been worried for a while about the sheer volume of her waste. IBD was the (original, incorrect) diagnosis. Suspecting a food intolerance, Maya was already on Natural Balance Fish and Sweet Potato, but also on W/D - which is super high fiber (45%?). The fiber worked for a while, tightening up her stool, but then just stopped. When I took her to the vet, found that she had lost 10 pounds over a couple of weeks.That's when she had the TLI test. Her B12 levels were fine (over 600). After the vet mentioned EPI, I started researching and found this site. I immediately took her off the W/D. Huge improvement, but still far from perfect.
Received the enzymes (Pancrezyme) on Fri 10/29. Right away her poops got darker and firmer.
I am so happy to have found this site. What a great resource!
