Re: Saying Goodbye

Oh my heart is aching for you. Know in your heart you did everything for Buzz, and I believe these special dogs know how much they mean to us.
I hope you have some tender treasured moments while you love on Buzz.....

Re: Mei - doubtful EPI diagnosis (?)

Welcome to the forum, glad you found us. She is super cute! Her B12 is low, even after the injections. Are you still giving them? Some dogs just aren't able to hold the B12 levels, so going with a daily capsule might work better for you, or a combination of pills and injections. Some find the pills ...

Re: Sassy says HI and Thank You!!!

Yes, some have B12 retested to see if what they are using to supplement is working. I looked back to see Sassy's TLI result, and she is definitely EPI, so don't re do the TLI test. Too expensive and unnecessary, once confirmed it won't change.

Re: Nova and me new to EPI and this forum

Yep, Jill is right about the chicken. Some but not all EPI dogs do not tolerate chicken in any form. But many do, for example my girl is fine with chicken. I would wait to add salmon oil or coconut oil for now. They both can be good things, but until things are stable, meaning good poops for a month...

Re: Sassy says HI and Thank You!!!

Richard, When you go back for bloodwork, what are you having tested? B12 is a good one to repeat, but don't pay for another TLI. There isn't a reason to repeat that unless the numbers were borderline at first testing and you are tracking to see if the trend is going down. Once confirmed EPI, no reas...

Re: Pup-date on Uma (and a question about calories)

Wow she's beautiful! Thank you for opening your home and heart to an older girl. How special <3 I don't know how to tell you to calculate, but maybe you could track her weight and make sure she isn't losing, if she maintains her goal weight even with all the running around then I would suspect you a...
