Re: Advice please

I can empathise with both his conditions, but with two dogs. Marti had epi for eight years, no kidney problems. I’ve not heard of other springers with epi, is yours a show type or worker? I’m hoping they aren’t related! Bobby , a cocker, non-epi, had a a kidney condition. Has the vet put a name to w...

Re: New EPI diagnosis

Hello, and sorry to hear you’ve got so much to cope with. Olesia will guide you. I just wanted comment on the apparent bloat. What has the vet said? My dog had a similar look, and an x~ray revealed that it wasn’t gas, it was fluid in the abdomen and chest cavity! Which was almost pressing on her hea...

Re: New Diagnosis

Hi Mel, I am in the Uk, and am a ‘sleeper’ on here, my dog had Epi for eight years a while back, and once you have a dog or cat with this, you stay involved.

Re: Panzym problems uk

Jean’s right. Panzym have a discount at the moment as well. Do check the link she put. I don’t understand your Vet’s response. They know you can get it yourself online and should inform you. Otherwise you need to advise them! If you are happy with panzym, no problems. There are powders from Chemeyes...

Re: Long Haul Flight with EPI dog

Tranquillisers aren’t allowed by law. How can any animal starve so long without distress? Can’t she transit somewhere.? I’ve done the Australia journey a few times, nonstop is bad enough for a human who is being fed. If you have got to do it through a pet relocation company, I’d have thought they wo...
