Re: Any Tips on Enzyme Dosage?

The highest dose was 25, but she was taking it for a year. She was also affected by blisters that rapidly emerged, burst and coalesced into raw patches, so steroids were to possibly help with that. She had ointment and wore a t- shirt for months. I haven’t any idea about causes and effects, and the ...

Re: Any Tips on Enzyme Dosage?

You’ve had lots of great advice, so I can just chime in to say that my dog Marti had MMM. She could still open her mouth wide, but the muscles on her head wasted rapidly and she had hollows that made her head gaunt. Luckily I could grow her hair to cover them, but everyone who stroked her commented ...

Re: smell

Re Lypex,, how much does she weigh? My large springer weighed 24kg at proper weight. She had 2 Lypex in each of her two daily meals. A sprocker will be lighter, so check the instructions. I used Chappie at first when she needed to disguise powdered enzymes, but within months her guts reacted to the ...

Re: Best food for EPI (in the uk)

https://www.allaboutdogfood.co.uk/ This website has everything on it. Hello from Yorkshire, this website, in its infancy, helped save my dogs life. I mostly used Millie’s Wolfheart, Many recipe blends available. I also used Eden., and Fish4dogs. A lot of our dogs can’t tolerate chicken or any grains...

Re: Thorin advice needed

Hello, are you able to get Creon (for humans)? If you can, check back here for how much to use. Otherwise, can you buy dog enzymes from abroad? They certainly have them, and as they are non- prescription should get through customs. In the UK, try Chemeyes.co.uk, though Brexit may slow delivery down....

Re: Tylan update

That’s good to know. Presumably you have a prescription from your own vet.

Re: Panzym - stopped working

What anti allergy injections is she having?
there are folks on here who who have used a Apoquel? Another is called cytopoint. Has any vet checked on the side effects of these ? I’m not a vet so I can’t comment on this!

Re: Panzym - stopped working

Another thought, I was puzzled by Betty being tubby, then realised Marti was the same. Wasted muscles , but solid , lethargic and had epi poo. Hungry and thirsty. This was a long time ago, when epi knowledge was even worse. I am mentioning this because you should be aware of the concurrent condition...

Re: Panzym - stopped working

https://www.vetuk.co.uk/dog-supplements-cat-supplements-pancreatic-supplements-c-5_9/panzym-concentrated-pancreatic-enzyme-powder-p-501 Your vet is wrong. I’m glad you’re not changing your panzym dose. Marti weighed 24 kegs. I tsp per meal three times a day. Betty is 11kgs so should be a tiny bit mo...
