Re: Diagnosis 72 hours ago - jack Russell X

Quick update - weight gain static . b12 levels have gone from 68 to 150 so will continue on weekly injections for now. Continues on the Tylan for another 45 days.
Continue to make his food which at 3 kg per week is rather labour intensive.

Thanks for everyone’s help..

Re: Diagnosis 72 hours ago - jack Russell X

Another update - a further 500gram weight gain (we have hit 8.0kg). Continues on 4 meals per day and medication regime appears to be working. Poo still remains yellow/ brown and low odour so will remain on tylan for now. Just had 6th vitamin B12 injection - for fasting B12 and folate levels next wee...

Re: Diagnosis 72 hours ago - jack Russell X

Tylan is 1/8 tsp twice per day with a plan to go to the 45 day and reasses ? Continue longer term. I was thinking to try sweet potato- will do a couple of ice cube trays worth and do a test run to see if it affects output in anyway. Once we have this under control and stable we need to look at havin...

Re: Diagnosis 72 hours ago - jack Russell X

Quick update- Weight up 400 grams in 16 days!!! Only 1 kg to go...I imagine that is a result of increasing the Creon dosage per meal (to the equivalent of one 10,000 capsule), B12 injections and the Tylon. Poo: still yellow/brown Food: 4 homemade meals per day - chicken, pumpkin and broccoli. 6 smal...

Home made food continues and s...

Re: Diagnosis 72 hours ago - jack Russell X

Sorry - 1 1/4 scoops (one that comes with the Creon for measuring). I am in Australia not the US so not using the powdered enzymes.

Re: Diagnosis 72 hours ago - jack Russell X

Quick update: Weight up 100 grams this week Poo was looking great so did a trial run of introducing appropriate dry food (15 grams in both of the morning feeds) - by midday yellow very loose poo so that’s obviously a failed challenge. Back to chicken, pumpkin and broccoli (home made) and 1/4 tsp coc...

Re: Diagnosis 72 hours ago - jack Russell X

Each scoop contains the following: Lipase 5,000bp units Amylase 3,600bp units Protease 200 oh. Euro units Each bottle (20grams) has 200 doses Currently on 4 meals per...
