Re: Diarrhea once again

Hi. If your pup has received a diagnosis of Epi, he needs enzymes on all food and treats for life. He needs it to digest his food.
Please continue SE along with enzymes.

Re: Unwell GSD

Thanks for the information Laura. The Metro can cause neurological issues among other things.. I was thinking a side effect of a drug Rosie might be on. So the new drugs, make aware of side effects of them in case new symptoms pop up.
Possible meningitis?
