Re: Getting LYPEX in the US/CREON Dosing

There was a difference at the time between what was available in Canada versus what was available in America, but as for what the dose would have been, I haven't a clue. Too long ago, I'm afraid. He was also only barely six pounds at the time.

Re: Getting LYPEX in the US/CREON Dosing

I was e-mailed and asked to chime in, but I don't check my e-mail very often, so I'm late to the show, and it seems like you're making progress. I had asked the veterinarian about Creon for Montgomery a few years ago and was told she could not dose it small enough for him, so we never did try it. We...

Re: Symptoms started at 10-weeks, diagnosed at 4 months

Montgomery's symptoms began at eight days old. We got him at five days old. He didn't poop for three days. Didn't stop pooping for four years. Multiple veterinarians, wormed, wormed, wormed, all manner of dietary tweaks, finally a veterinarian who had seen EPI and that started us off on our road to ...

I'll make sure to dig the camera out. He never minds being photographed.
Thank you!

Re: Montgomery is ELEVEN!!???

Thank you. I'm still trying to figure out what to get him. I'm thinking five foot tall pink teddy bear. He'd love sinking his claws into that. He's the best person I've ever known.

Montgomery is ELEVEN!!???

Montgmery is eleven years young. Crazy. Amazing. Too fast. Healthy as a horse and strong as an ox, but, oh, little cat, don't get old too fast.

Re: EPI dog coughing

Mary does this. Montgomery gags, coughs, and reverse sneezes. Both cats have IBD. Montgomery has EPI, IBD and SID. No one can give me a good answer as to why they do this. Mary is on Pepcid, which stops the vomiting but does not stop the gagging. With Montgomery, it gets to a point where I have to s...

Re: EPI Diagnosed…diets and moods?

I can only speak from personal experience. It was a long haul getting Montgomery diagnosed in the first place, and getting him stable after the fact was a journey. I won't bore you with all the details, but I will tell you this. If there is a good naturopath in your area, go. I think it saved our li...

Re: Questions about Saving Jack

Yes, they can undergo surgery and recover just fine. Because of his age, your veterinarian will likely want to take blood, though.
