Pam,

Did you ever find out what fish oil it was?

Re: Vit B12

Hi Kim, Most EPI dogs will respond well to either the pills with intrinsic factor or injections to get their B12 up, so it's really your choice. Definitely take a look at our quick guide for Australia at the link Kodi's Mom posted. Pam gave great advice about tylan; unfortunately it seems that tylan...

Re: Won't Eat

Jill gave you a good suggestion about Pepcid to help with acid reflux, as that could be causing some of the vomiting. It could also be from SID (small intestinal dysbiosis) because that can cause an upset stomach. It does sound like SID is back, though, since it was a big change soon after stopping ...

Re: posting

Hi Pam, I have seen several posts from you lately. Thanks so much for chiming in with suggestions and support! I think sometimes people don't get notified of responses and/or don't always check or reply. I know when I was first starting and waiting very impatiently for some answers, every response w...

Re: Question about food

Hi Dani, Have you been having better luck getting Riley to eat? You can add just about any people food into her food as long as it is safe for dogs and you don't put too much in. Keep a close eye on the poop, and if you see any bad poops, you will know that you found something that she can't tolerat...

Re: Diabetes and EPI- What to Feed?

Hi Pam, Olesia has had a few things keeping her away from the forum for a few days, but I will try to answer at least some of your questions, and I'll ask her to take a look at your most recent post when she gets a chance. B12 - Is she getting any B12 supplements right now and do you know what her B...

Re: Dog treats

Hi Patricia! Sorry for the late reply. It's hard to put the enzymes on a pre-made treat like that, but there are other options. We don't recommend treats at all until your dog has been stable for a couple months, just to make sure they are doing well before starting something that could make them ba...

Re: New Diagnosis - Please help!

Andrea, What wonderful news that Blu is back to his normal self and has gained a good amount of weight! What is his goal weight? It sounds like you have a good plan in place, with some possible tweaks to the food as Olesia mentioned. The only other thing I can add is that when he's at his goal weigh...

Re: WE ARE A FAMILY

l am incredibly grateful to be a part of this amazing EPI family. I have had so much support from EPI members, both staff and non-staff members, since I first joined the forum 9 years ago. It's very comforting to know I have such a wonderful resource available to me, and that so many people are here...

Re: Red tongue

Some people have done other things to make sure the enzymes get rinsed out of the mouth after they eat, too. Some suggestions are to wipe her lips with a wet cloth after she eats; use a squirt bottle to rinse the inside of her mouth out after she eats; drop a few kibbles or treats into her water bow...
