About Me

 my husband and I live in the state of Washington up the Hood Canal. We are lucky enough to live on 40acres bordered by the Olympic National Forest on two sides and a logging company on two sides. We have Mickey, our 13 year old jack russell who keeps us on our toes, and Kiya, an aussie/blue heeler who is my running partner. She is 6. Everyone loves it at our place but we usually have to have the dogs on a leash as we have coyotes, cougars, elk, deer, squirrels, bald eagles, bear, you name it.

i just learned that stress will affect my dog, i am full of stress am i causing him more to react in this horrible diarrhea reaction? i still do not know the results of last blood work, more stress. does he know this? The doctor has not recommended any enzymes or any type of cure, i guess it is hurry up and wait. But my stress level has made me feel less than a loving mother & more like a job i don't want to deal with. That is a horrible feeling. The love i read from especially Jill Holbert makes me question if i should have this beautiful animal or not. I am truly at a loss of feelings & responsibility to someone who truly deserves more than what i am giving. I want to save him, i do i just don't know if i have what it takes to do it. Seems like i bit off more than i can chew,, for sure. I feel awful, just awful, is my stress messing up my baby more than he already is? I think i know the answer, I am ill myself, i am more ill with my behavior as of late. I really am reaching out, just don't know for sure what i'm reaching for., no chicken that is all he knows wait for vet to recommend something else? My hands & heart are tied.I am a mess oh yes i am.

Jill, I am very interested in the idea of filling capsules with the enzymes because my Sadie too is refusing to eat the food mixed with the powdered enzymes. So if I could ask a few questions? Which size capsules did you buy from Amazon?, how much does your dog weigh? and how many capsules do you give Mickey before his meal?
I'd like to try the capsule idea but don't want to buy the wrong size. My Sadie should weigh around 72 pounds but is currently down to 67 so I need to get this figured out.
Thanks in advance for you reply.

I am new to this site but rather desperate for help for my little dog. He was recently diagnosed and placed on Pancrezyme Powder in his food but he won't eat it. He hates the consistency it makes the food and also seems to dislike the smell then of the food. I tried turkey roll-ups and this threw him into a stomach attack of the growlies. I know that capsules and tablets are not as effective as the powder but if he won't eat the food with the powder enzyme how can I get the much need pancreatic enzymes into him. Anyone who can help I would appreciate it. My vets are "researching" options for me and they told me to stop the pancreyzme for now but this is just going to set him back further.. Any suggestions to those more reasoned than I with this disease sure would be appreciated?

Hi Jill:
I tried to respond to your message sent via email but I got a message sayingthat it was undeliverable, so I'll see if this gets to you. My email address is lidawa@msn.com. I live in Elmira...which is just a few miles west of Eugene...sort of just beyond the outskirts off of 126 going to the coast. So, when you are in Philomath, you aren't that far away. As a matter of fact, when my grandkids wrestle, they wrestle Philomath and they also play baseball against them lol.
