Hi Scarlet - I'm so sorry your dog isn't doing well. First a few questions: what enzymes are you using? how much per cup of food? A few things stand out besides my question about enzymes. As Alex said B12 is critical to properly managing EPI. Low B12 can affect mood, energy, weight gain, appetite, e...
Hi! I'm not a pancreatitis expert but have asked Jill to pop on. What I found regarding the CPL test and your number is that it may indicate pancreatitis but Jill will be better able to speak to that. Hang in there.
Hi Mike - welcome to our EPI family. Don't worry, we will help guide you through the journey. One thing I do want to stress though is the B12 supplementing. Do you know what your dog's B12 level was when diagnosed with EPI? EPI dogs need their B12 on the high side of normal 600+ and supplementing is...
Glad Piper is doing okay. I get nervous every time I have to have hubby feed Doc. I pre-measure and label everything so there is no room for error LOL - despite my efforts he has forgotten to give the B12 pill and or Zyrtec.
Hi Alexis. Have you changed the food or are you still feeding the Hills chicken and rice? If so, it may be time to switch the food. Most EPI dogs can't handle rice and/or chicken. I doubt the Tylan is causing the diarrhea, although it's possible, my first suspicion is the food - especially since you...

Hi Bev - welcome to our EPI family! You're in excellent hands with Jean and Olesia so I won't muddy the waters - just wanted to say welcome
Hi Laura!! First if Gemma has perfect poop, the weight is good then I wouldn't change anything. However, if it's not the first thing I would do is get a fasted B12 blood test done to see where her levels are at. Then I would start using the correct dose of enzymes to food - what you're using may act...
I'm so sorry Blue is doing poorly. Olesia gave great advice as always so I don't want to muddy the waters but I noticed you were giving slippery elm only once a day - typically we recommend giving it twice a day am and pm so you might want to try adding it to the morning meal.
