RECOMMENDED VETS

 This page is dedicated to the many good vets that we, as EPI owners, have had the good fortune to come across who have been wonderful to work with and have done a great job helping us manage our dogs and their illness.

This page is by no means a conclusive list but will be a "work in progress" as more and more recommendations come
in from EPI owners.

ARIZONA

 Dr. Ed Cohen Anthem Pet Medical Center, 42105 N 41st Drive- Suite 148, Phoenix, AZ 85086 Phone: 623-889-7090 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting            623-889-7090      end_of_the_skype_highlighting http://www.anthempetcare.com/
Dr. Cohen immediately recognized the signs of Jade's disorder and ?diagnosed' her correctly at our fist visit.

Dr. Cohen?s quick and accurate diagnosis is just one reason I will continue going to Anthem Pet Medical Center.  It?s easy to put on a smile and be pleasant but the respect and genuine care I felt from the staff for both Jade and I is rare.  Also, when Dr. Cohen was going over EPI and other possibilities for what was causing this, not only did he explain everything in a way I easily make sense of, there was no doomsday scenario given to me or use of any scare tactics.
I?m a Certified Training and Canine Behavior Specialist and the only thing I dislike about what I do is that I?m forced to see the underbelly of the pet industry from time to time.  This might be cliche but the one and only bad thing about my experiences with Dr. Cohen and the Anthem Pet Medical Center is that I didn?t find them sooner.  (Troy Zimmerman,  Certified Training & Canine Behavior Specialist 1-632-201-9433)  http://www.atonewithdog.com/

Myah?s mom, Lori: "Dr. Wheaton immediately recognized Myah's EPI symptoms and was happy to send them to Texas A&M GI lab, at my request.  He spends a lot of time with us during the office visit and got Myah on the right track very quickly.  He even sent me EnzymeDiane information! Dr. Wheaton will work with you and your ideas, but what I love is that he doesn't stray from good clinical judgment.  This is key, as we can get pretty crazy about our fur babies! The office is lovely and they have their own pet rescue organization."

We just met with a Vet in Lakewood, CO (Outside of Denver) and she had knowledge of EPI and had treated dogs.  She was very happy to reommend the B12 shots ($26/shot) and her exam fee was about $50.   She said everything on this website aligned with what she knows about EPI and their textbook as well.  She actually took a picture of the Dianes Enzyme to offer other owners as a substiute to their perscription.  Anyway, she was worth the drive, knowledgable and said to continue on the Tylan, Probioitic, Enzymes, B12 etc...

Dr. Gotler, Bolton Veterinary Hospital, 222 Boston Turnpike, Bolton, CT  06043 Phone: (860) 646-6134 or (860) 456-4298  24/7 Emergency Care  http://www.boltonvet.com/

Dr. Gotler and the staff at Bolton Veterinary Hospital worked diligently to get my border collie Kaedence diagnosed (November 2007).   We were in the office at least once if not two times per week with blood work as I was literally watching her die right before my eyes.   Their initial diagnosis was that she was suffering from severe food allergies.   Thanks to Dr. Gotler we had the diagnosis of EPI AND food allergies (lo and behold chicken and rice).    Dr. Pikas at Bolton Vet had a GSD with EPI so he is extremely knowledgeable in the disease.   They answered all my concerns and questions regarding EPI with caring and patience.   Kaedence even donated blood for EPI research.  The staff at Bolton Vet was very excited to pull the blood and wants me to keep them informed as to any results with the study.  Today she is a happy, healthy 4 year old typical border collie who does agility, obedience, rally, goes camping, rving, swimming and just enjoys laying in mom?s lap upside down sleeping.   I purchase the EPI Calendar every year for Bolton Vet to show my gratitude for saving my little girls life.  

David Lambert, Quinebaug Valley Veterinary Hospital, 616 Wauregan Road, Danielson, CT 06239, (phone: 860-774-7650)

I highly recommend Heron Lakes Animal Hospital.  They successfully diagnosed my Sheltie as having EPI and have been taking care of my dogs since.  Dr. Lera is very kind, understanding, and patient as well as knowledgeable and a good listener.  He will give you options and let you choose the treatment style you are most comfortable with (aggressive treatment, wait-and-see, holistic, etc.) knowing that each owner has their own comfort level with different approaches. I love the annual Wellness Plan whereby the wellness visit includes free office visits for the rest of the year.  If cost is an issue, Dr. Lera will be happy to explain costs and offer options.  When my dog needed regular B12 shots, his staff trained me to do it at home, saving me time and expense.  When a new symptom comes up, he contacts experts and does research.  He stays up-to-date with the latest information in the field.
The staff is very caring and efficient.  We never have to wait very long to be seen, yet Dr. Lera patiently answers all my questions (I have a lot).  My dogs are happy to go into the office.  I will be recommending Heron Lakes Animal Hospital to anyone who asks.

Dr. Weaver at the Animal Hospital of Towne Lake in Woodstock, Georgia
http://www.townelakevets.com/
Without her speedy diagnosis, my 4 year old dog would have not made it through. My Maltese, Barkley, went from 4 pounds to a now healthy 8. He's doing great thanks to his enzymes and prescription diet.
 
Dr.Mark Watson (owner) of Crossroads Animal Hospital in Newnan, GA. http://crossroadsanimalvet.com/ (a suburb of Atlanta that is 20 miles south of the airport). The phone number is  770-253-1020. I think so highly of him that when I took my 11 year old Westie for his check up as a new patient (we moved to Newnan from Houston last fall) yesterday with drop in only hours on Saturday, I waited for an hour and a half so that I could see Mark.

Dr. Fleming  is wonderful, after a week of unsuccessful treatment for diarreha, he immediately suspected EPI.he is a marvelous veterinarian, very skilled, and quite expert in his field. 
 

Dr. Adam Mordecai, Internal Medical Specialist in Buffalo Grove, IL, 1515 Busch Pkwy, Buffalo Grove, Il 60089,  http://www.vetspecialty.com/  

I recommend Dr. Mordecai as he has taken excellent care of Soleil and has ordered all appropriate testing.  He takes the time to discuss testing and treatment options.  He does not order unnecessary tests.  He also takes calls and returns calls promptly.  The staff at Vet Specialties is very accommodating and professional.   He is very knowledgeable about treating EPI and IBD.   He will also take the time to answer any and all questions you may have and will even research things for us if needed.

Dr. Mike Passarella at Antioch Animal Hospital in Antioch IL , 40949 N. Il State Rd #83 , Antioch Illinois 60002, Phone 847-395-0636, Fax 847-395-0638. http://antiochanimalhospitalinc.com/

Dr. Passarella is Soleil's local vet.  He was aware of EPI in cats and though he had never treated one he did send Soleil to her specialist for diagnosis.  Dr. Passarella is very knowledgable about EPI in Cats and has been extremely helpful.  He and his staff always take my calls or call back quickly.  They will fit Soleil in for appointments immediately if needed.  Dr. Passarella is the vet that created the recipe to compound pancreatic enzymes which ultimately saved Soleil's life.  He has also taken calls from other vets for people with EPI cats to offer help and suggestions.  He and his staff are wonderful people who are always there to help.  Dr. Passarella orders all appropriate tests and takes the time to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.  Dr. Passarella will also research things for us if needed. Carol

 Dr. Luke Stahlheber, Northgate Small Animal Hospital, 1497 Vandalia, Collinsville, Il 62234

Dr. Stahlheber was not the one who originally diagnosed CC, but when I brought her to him but he did research Epi thouroghly. He listened to me, asked questions, and respected what I told him about what worked for her.
When she became ill, he confered with several other vets, did everything he could to figure out what was wrong with her before referring us to the specialist in St. Louis. I have much respect for this young man.

Dr Jeff Epler, 2914 E State Road 44, Shelbyville, IN 46176-9287 (317) 398-9795

IOWA

Dr. Jonelle Hankner and she is at Edgewood Animal Hospital in Cedar Rapids. The number to her office is 319-396-7800 and she is also on Facebook.  Dr. Hankert is spectacular... she'd never dealt with EPI before my dog Hailey but she knew to look for it and what she was looking for. Once Hailey was diagnosed my vet went above and beyond researching multiple aspects of the disease. She knew right away to provide Hailey not only with enzymes, but also B12 shots. Although she prefers a dry kibble diet to the raw I feed, I'd recommend her to anyone in Iowa or near Cedar Rapids

Dr Brad Peterson at Peterson Pet Hospital , 420 Colton Circle NE ? Unit 3 ? Cedar Rapids ? 52402,  phone: (319) 743-0554
Dr Brad Peterson at Peterson Pet Hospital diagnosed Lou with EPI in April of 2009. He knew right away what the problem was and explained it thoroughly to us.  He was available
anytime to answer all the questions that I had and put Lou?s care as a top priority. He staff is wonderful and friendly and they treat our pets like little humans!


KANSAS

 Antioch Dog and Cat Hospital 5200 NE Vivion Road, Kansas City, Mo 64119, 816-453-7272.
Dr. Michael Hodgson, DVM and Dr. Lianne Carr DVM.
  I would like to say that Dr. Hodgson had seen one other EPI dog during his practice. Dr. Carr became involved in Dutch's case and did not know that much about EPI,  BUT started to research it going to TAMU site, epi4dogs site, and any other site she could find. She gathered so much information and did a lot of follow up. These doctors work together very closely and exchange information constantly so that each knows about as much as they can about your pet. Dr. Hodgson will come to the house when your pet needs to go to the Rainbow Bridge.

Dr. Kent Callicott, DVM
PetWorks, 9232 Metcalf Avenue, Overland Park, KS 66207, 913-381-3131
Dr. Callicott was the vet we saw for the laser treatments to see if it might help the ulcers/sores in Dutch's colon.  He knew about EPI and he worked very closely with Dr. Reigl in making sure that since this was an experimental treatment for this problem, that he had the correct settings and was using the laser in the best way to help Dutch. I know that when we took Dutch there we had to beg him to get up. After the laser treatments Dutch was able to play again.

Dr. Jeff Dennis, DVM, Veterinary Specialty Clinic, 11950 W. 110th St. #B, Overland Park KS 66210, 913-642-9563This is the specialty vet that did Dutch's colonoscopy and told us about the grain free food.  He kept in touch with the other vets we had working with us so that everyone knew what was going on.  He said he was not expecting Dutch to get megacolon.

Dr. Gordon diagnosed Onza with EPI in April 2009. He has provided exceptional care for Onza and is very caring and patient with us. His associate, Dr. Page Wages, has also given Onza excellent care and both she and Dr. Gordon were already informed and knowledgeable about EPI, but were very open to explore new information and research. They were very receptive about the 'epi4dogs' website soon after Onza was diagnosed when we discovered the website through friends who also had a dog with EPI.

I  appreciated that he suspected and tested for EPI and even though her values showed the opposite of EPI he called and gathered advise from colleges and decided to go ahead and test treat Susie with Enzymes for Chronic Pancreatitis, and it saved her life, she was absolutely wasting away with everything she ate going straight through her. She has made a complete recovery on the enzymes, And Mike never gave up until we found a solution.

Dr. Hagan's been so great ever since I started going to him in February. He stays in close contact with TAMU and doesn't hesitate to give them a call if I have a question that he can't answer.

Dr. Rodriguez at Schertz Animal Hospital in Schertz, TX http://www.schertzanimalhospital.com/
He is very easy to get along with, good sense of humor, gentle with the animals.  He doesn't give me any problems when I ask to go to a specialist or want this or that test run unless he just feels it's really unnecessary.  I would recommend him.

Sherri Youngblood ,Spring Creek Animal Hospital, 14837 Nacogdoches Rd.,San Antonio, Texas 78247
She's Butterbean's primary vet, and the one who got the ball rolling towards Butter's diagnosis and recovery.  I've been her patient since she graduated from TAMU and can attest to her caring, compassion and determination.  She's a super person and a heck of a vet!

Dr. Jim Lamb, at River Road Animal Hospital, 1508  18th Street, NW, Puyallup, WA  (tel:  253-845-7525)
Auggie had an awesome Vet! He is now 60 miles from me,but,if Gretch got really sick,I would take her to him. When Auggie died (He was not involved,unfortunately.)I was feeling I should have done more for him,or have sensed something was wrong. I called Dr.Lamb,and he spoke with me for over 30 minutes about Auggie and assured me there was nothing more anyone could have done..Dr. Lamb,personally sent me a card and wrote a very kind note in it. I have never had a Vet go that far.  He works in a Animal Hospital with 4-5 other Vets. He is Very popular
 

Jackie Obando, Marta Nobrega at Mercy Vet, 2707 76th Avenue Southeast, Mercer Island, WA 98040-2735, tel: (206) 232-7667, http://www.mercyvet.com (has more vets but these two have treated EPI before).
Everyone at the clinic is great, but Dr Obando is the one who saved my dog?s life.  Dr. Obando and Dr. Nobrega both have experience treating dogs with EPI.  They also will do phone consults.  Dr Obando is very supportive of clients doing their own research and has referred other clients to me as a source of information on cheaper enzyme alternatives.  She is extremely ethical and kind.  The only vet my dog has ever really liked!  Only go to them if you are interested in alternative medicine.  They do both alternative and Western, but are really dedicated to alternative animal medicine.  They often have a relatively long waiting list for new clients, so don?t wait to call as you may have to wait up to a month for a first appointment.  Once you?re a client of record, getting appointments is easy.  Usually within a day or two.

 Dr. Clark, Barrington Animal Hospital, Hwy 3, Barrington Passage, NS B0W 1G0, Nova Scotia, Canada (902) 637-2555 - I live in Nova Scotia Canada and my Luca was diagnosed with EPI a few months ago and it was because of my amazing vet who went above and beyond to help him 

Dr. Derek Clark, Abbotsford Animal Hospital, 14958 Yonge St, Aurora, Ontario, Canada, L4G 1M7, 905-727-7379 or 416-801-9593.
All of the vets (there are 4) at Abbotsford are terrific and the tech and office staff are wonderful too.  We commute almost 40 minutes to get to them because we love them so much.  Dr. Derek Clark is Cedar's primary vet.  He suggested that we test Cedar for EPI after only 4 weeks of symptoms even though they don't have any other animals in the practice with EPI.  A nice call that really helped us help Cedar before she had lost too much weight!!  Derek is friendly, respectful, skilled and knowledgeable.  He really listens to us, gives us his honest opinion about treatment options and always is respectful of our decision.  He's very open to dialogue, to learning new approaches and is always willing to consult someone with more experience if this is needed.  We highly recommend Dr. Clark and his colleagues at Abbotsford Animal Hospital.

On our very first visit to our vet, Dr. Glavin, with Lucy he suggested we might be looking at a case of EPI.  He conducted all the appropriate tests and immediately prescribed antibiotics.  Within a week Lucy was being treated with enzymes for EPI and is doing very well.  Thanks to his careful questioning and diagnostic skills, we were spared a protracted period of worry and Lucy was spared further deterioration.  We are very grateful.

All the vets in this practice are very helpful especially Dr. Olender who diagnosed Buffalo.  Dr Olender went to a lot of trouble researching EPI and then recommending the enzymes and special diet that Buffalo has been on for quite a few years now with success.  A big thank you to the March Road team.

47 Holme Lane, Hillsborough , Sheffield S6 4JP. Tel 0114 2343013 . I recommend Hallam Veterinary Centre ?.. I transferred to this practice after my previous vet moved. They were immediately knowledgable and sympathetic to the costs involved. They have a reduced rate for long term patients, and B12 injections were offered at the cheaper agricultural rate after signing a disclaimer. My previous experience with Marti was followed up, my opinions treated with respect, and Marti treated with kindness to the end.  Their new website has factsheets including one on EPI.
