Re: Ace Update

WOW!!! Ace is looking fabulous- -what a gorgeous pup! So glad to hear that his EPI is most of the time under good control ..... but yeah... diabetes in conjunction with EPI can be quite challenging to keep in good control at all times..... even when you do everything "right" ... been there/done that...
