Re: Mixed Emotion on Food/Poops

Hi Kelly, So glad to hear the tylan has helped so much and you're having success! Woo Hoo!! As for the tylan, we recommend 45 days of a full dose. We have found that many dogs do better if they are then weaned off it rather than just stopping it abruptly, so I would try that. To wean: After the 45th...

Sarah, I'm so sorry to hear that your sweet guy now has aspiration pneumonia! Wishing him a speedy recovery from that and some success with getting him to eat. Please keep us posted.

Re: EPI and Secondary Issues

Hi Molly, A couple days ago, we had a post on FaceBook asking what kind of flea and tick preventatives our members have used with their EPI dogs. Yesterday, someone posted about that and then added: "we are staying away from the Lyme vaccine per the recommendation of our dermatologist. Our GSD lost ...

Re: Enzyme Diane

Hi We started on Viokase V from the vet and I nearly choked at the price. Then I heard about Enzyme Diane and switched to her Pancreatin 6x. It worked exactly the same as the Viokase V and cost literally 1/3rd the price. Pixie has been using it successfully since then, 9 years ago. Thank God for Enz...

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...
