Moxie is a 4.5 year old female PWD. She started having cow patty wheat colored elimination and started losing weight. She went from being a picky eater to being ravenous at all times. After visits to the vet and blood testing she was dx with PEI. The vet put her on pancreatic enzymes and we added probiotics. She started holding her wieght after being put on hypoallergic dog food. At this time she has gained back 2 of her 8 LB loss--Moxie started at 40lbs-- her elimination seems to be stabilizing with 1 cup of her old high protien dog food and 1tsp of pancreatic enzymes. She is still hungry and looking around after eating. We had her on 2 cups 2x a day of the hypoallergic food?? The high protien food seems to be better. WE soak it in water and the enzyme powder for 20 minutes. I haven't given her a b12 injection yet. My goal would be for Moxie not to be so hungry--be satisfied with her food--maybe it is too soon. I am also afraid to give her any other food ideas i.e., sweet potatoe raw food yet??
