Re: Early morning acid reflux mystery

Yes, the snack should be treated with enzymes, too. If it were me, I'd give a scoop of grain-free canned food, to ensure she will gobble it up. You are just trying to keep her tummy from getting too empty & producing bile. Personally, at her weight I think I'd be feeding her as much as she will ...

Re: New EPI Diagnosis

Alice, if you look at the bottom of posts, you will see the signature, where some members choose to share test results, meds, food choices, and outcomes. You will find that many of us feed Sport Dog Elite/herding dogs. Tucker gets the buffalo/sweet potato recipe. YES, there has been a problem with s...

Re: Early morning acid reflux mystery

Arlene, that is heartbreaking, and I'm sure you've tried everything, but just in case--- You should be feeding that sweet girl 150% of the amount you would feed her at her normal weight, So, if she should weigh 60, and the bag says 4 cups for that weight, you would feed her 6. Sorry, I'm sure you kn...

Re: Early morning acid reflux mystery

Hi Arlene, and welcome to the forum! I have definitely heard similar stories from other members, but have not experienced it myself (and, sadly, I can't remember the answer to the problem). Someone will come along & share their ideas, but in the meantime, I just wanted to say hi & we're glad...

Re: New EPI Diagnosis

Olesia, will the increase in recommended tylan dosage be updated on the antibiotics page? I wonder if this is why Tucker is passing gas after yet another 45 day round. Thanks!---Pam

Re: New EPI Diagnosis

Alice, dogs from 60-85 pounds should get 1/4 tsp Tylan twice a day. No need to increase, I think! Sorry she threw up, maybe just dealing with SID. Jean often suggests giving something like a scrambled egg at bedtime, to keep the morning queasies away. I hope that would be ok for a Cushings pup (enzy...

Re: New EPI Diagnosis

Hi Alice. Yes, that's what they say about B12. But, maybe finish up the enzymes you have, before giving the Wonderlabs. As I said before, enzyme diane has a wonderful product, for a fraction of the price your vet has to charge for enzymes. Occasionally, someone will say their dog doesn't do well on ...

Re: New EPI Diagnosis

Hi Alice. Thanks for posting. TLI---Bailey has EPI, as long as the number is below normal, that's all you need. 1.8 was Tucker's number, too. Cobalamin---B12 supplementation is needed, so if you're not already, you should order Wonderlabs Pet B12 with intrinsic factor. EPI dogs need a score of over ...

Re: Newly Diagnoised

Shawn, here's what I would do--- increase the SE, like Jill said. AND, I can't help but wonder if Piper may have some tenderness in her mouth, caused by the enzymes. Maybe she is trying to soothe herself after she eats. Poor Tucker has swelling around his lips in the back, and I try to remember to f...
