Re: Sassy says HI and Thank You!!!

I give my girl a little every now and then on her meal. Typically if I don't have anything leftover from dinner I sprinkle grated cheese. If I don't put anything she looks at me and refuses to eat. Super picky and reluctant eater. Heavy sigh. If she ate his food so close to her meal she will probabl...

Re: Enzyme Donation

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. My heart is with you as I know it is devastating to lose your pup so suddenly. They certainly are not here long enough. Yes, Diane is a good resource. She works with many rescues and helps them get EPI pups stabilized, and often times sends them enzymes to get them...

Re: Poop color is gray

Yep, those don't look just right. But I would hesitate to blame it on the B12. I looked it up in our "poop chart" and here is what it says about great or greasy looking poop: "A greasy-looking gray stool can be a sign of too much fat in your dog’s diet, which can trigger pancreatitis, which is infla...

Re: Containers?

Richard People all have their favorite way of storing enzymes. I put mine in a jar with a screw top lid and store in the dark in my cabinet. I have a dedicated measuring spoon that just lives in there and has no other job. I do not like to stick my hand in the bag either, I knew pretty early on that...

Re: Newly Diagnosed Corgi w/EPI - Suggestions?

Sorry to hear she is struggling so. I agree with Jill, take a little stool sample in just to be on the safe side that she didn't get anything else. We tend to blame everything on EPI, but sometimes problems have other causes. If you changed nothing else, I would have to suspect the new food for sure...

Re: Sassy says HI and Thank You!!!

Richard My girl was free fed before EPI as well. As she was spiraling down with her EPI symptoms, she was eating more and more, but it took us a while before we figured it out. There were several people in the house topping off her bowl as needed. Before the onset, she never overate so we never had ...
