Re: Need Help-Dog having another setback

Update- She's been doing a lot better since we started the antibiotic. I've added a little more enzyme and give her ice after she eats. I haven't started giving her the Pepcid yet but have been giving her a spice mixture that people on here told me a few years ago helps with the acid reflux. I am th...

Re: Need Help-Dog having another setback

Thanks everyone-I will add the 1/8 tsp to her food and try this antibiotic and hopefully start seeing some results in the next couple of days. Rotating these different treatments seems to make sense and I hope that will be a solution for the long term if this works. I will keep you updated, thank yo...

Re: Need Help-Dog having another setback

Yep you’re right, it’s the folate that was high not the cobalamin. Sorry for the confusion! I didnt think to get the numbers from him today but I will find out what they were exactly.

Re: Need Help-Dog having another setback

Hey everyone, I finally have an update. The vet got her blood work back and everything looked fine except her cobalamin level was high. He said her B12 level was good and with the cobalamin being high it signals to him that she has SIBO. I told him she had been on Cholestrymine for about a year and ...

Re: Need Help-Dog having another setback

Hi Jean- I used Pepsid for an antacid for a long time and then when it stopped being effective I switched to Choleystrymine powder which has worked well until now. I never really have kept a journal although I know it is a big help, I will probably start doing that now. I got her to the vet this mor...

Re: Need Help-Dog having another setback

Thank you Jill. I will try the ice cube after her meals and maybe add a little more enzyme to the meals as well. I really would like to get her an extra meal because she's so hungry these days. Her B12 levels have always been great, for some reason that hasn't ever been a problem for her but I'll ha...

My GSD girl is now 8 years old and we've been treating her EPI for 7 years pretty successfully. We've had 2 big ...
