Re: New to EPI - Help with Enzyme-Where to buy

Welcome to the forum, did they ever retest for EPI? Or did y'all just go on symptoms? I would strongly encourage you to retest if you haven't. There have been cases where the pup had symptoms but tested negative....and when the test was repeated after about 6 months or so TLI was positive. The pancr...

Re: Kenzie update

I think Jean steered you away from Chicken because many EPI dogs don't do well with chicken. But some do just fine and if you have so many things she does not tolerate, chicken might be a good protein source for you to try.

Re: Getting newly diagnosed EPI under control- 11 m/o GSD mix

Hi and welcome to the forum. To answer your question about the dosage, it is based on the amount of food given at each meal. Which type of enzymes are you using? This info will help us help you better. Most of the prescription enzymes have the wrong dosage amounts on them. Heavy sigh.... It might be...

Re: TLI is LESS than 1

Hi and welcome to the forum Try not to get too hung up on the TLI result, once the TLI number reaches the level that it is positive for EPI, it really isn't significant that it's below 1, the treatment will be the same..... Jill and Jean have given you good info to start. Plan to retest the B12, ove...

Re: Sassy says HI and Thank You!!!

Personally I don't order that far in advance, she typically does not have a problem getting enzymes in. She did just have a spell where her supplier had some difficulties with getting 6x, but she always had 8x available. So I don't worry too much about that. I order again when I have about 2 weeks w...

Re: Sassy says HI and Thank You!!!

And don't forget, once she gains her weight back, you can cut the food back to normal amounts, not 150%, so that will reduce the amount of enzymes you use.

Re: Please advise! Newly diagnosed EPI Found Bloody Stool!

Welcome to the forum, so sorry you had this scare! My girl hasn't had bloody stool, so I can't advise, but I just wanted to offer support and welcome you. If your vet doesn't know much about EPI, that doesn't necessarily mean they aren't going to be a good one to stick with. If they are willing to l...
