Re: Stomach rumbles

Hello Angela. A warm welcome to you and Lola. You have been given excellent advice....especially Olesia's excellent explanation of SID. Getting the correct diagnosis is the most important part, so you are on your way to helping Lola to good health. What form of B12 supplementation are you giving, in...

Re: Recently Diagnosed

Hi Ali, A warm welcome to you and Nova. I love her name. I am sorry she has been going through all this. But the worst part is over, because now you have a correct diagnosis and are beginning treatment so that she can be healthy again. Once you get everything balanced she will improve......as she al...

Re: Any Tips on Enzyme Dosage?

I agree with Jill because I, too, had a dog who always got diarrhea whenever I tried a probiotic.

Re: Newly Diagnoised

What worked with Kolby for treats was taking bits of his enzymed food and putting them in empty ice cube tray compartments and freezing them, then offering them...one or two at a time... when he needed rewards or some training. You just need to watch the poos while using these frozen treats. If they...

Re: Left over Pancreatin 8x

Thank you for your generosity in Kara's name. We also lost a German Shepherd(Kip) to Degenerative Myelopathy at almost 13 years old. It was heart breaking to watch him decline but he was so noble during his ordeal. He gave us so much love that we decided when he passed to adopt another German Shephe...

Re: Any Tips on Enzyme Dosage?

A warm welcome to you and Hana, Andy. She is certainly a lucky girl to have landed in your care. I am glad you are going to look at the amount of enzymes you are using with the canned food. We used Royal Canin for many years with Kolby, but at one point he started refusing, so we tried the canned ve...

Re: Kimberly with Jake

A warm welcome to you and Jake. Our Kolby had ulcers at the beginning from the enzymes and sometimes some blood.....not quite as bad as Jake's. We found that increasing the amount of water mixed with the enzymes before incubating helped. We also increased the incubation time by quite a bit until he ...

Re: Optimal Incubation Time

Glad to hear the good report! Sounds great. If you are seeing good results from your 20 minute incubation time, then keep it up. We always had to go a bit longer with Kolby because he would get mouth sores......especially at the beginning. Eventually, we got down to 20 minutes, but it took us quite ...

Re: New EPI diagnosis

Hi, Nicole, I agree with Jill about the B12. It can drop quickly, so having Cali on a daily supplement will avoid any drastic drops. Let us know if you solve the enzyme puzzle. We never had any issues with Diane's enzymes all the years we had Kolby on them, but that isn't to say it can't happen. Ole...
