Re: I need help! GSD diagnosis

Rats no image came through.

You could forward the link I attached about cTli testing to your vet for their information if needed.

I know a lot of folks send the samples to TAMU. Mickeys was done through his vet through IDEXX and they did cTli, B12 and folate as a package.

Re: I need help! GSD diagnosis

Good morning Paul. I would schedule a cTli test for Epi, a B12 and folate test. Please food fast Axle 8-12 hours before the test. This way you will know for sure if it is Epi.

Re: Slippery elm not cuttin' it

Your ratio would be 2/3 t enzyme per 2/3c dry food. I would go to the correct dose of enzyme and see if that helps. Can you call the vet and get the result for the Tli? As Pam pointed out folks have good luck with the Sport dog food she linked. Most dogs have low B12 when diagnosed so I would either...

Re: Slippery elm not cuttin' it

Would you mind giving us some more information on Merle? At diagnosis, what were the lab results for the Tli test and were the B12 and folate results available also? It would help us. Grains can interfere with the efficacy of the enzymes so this could be contributing to the issue. Looking at the ing...

Re: Slippery elm not cuttin' it

What is the diet? Is it grain free?
Are you supplementing with B12 daily?

Thanks for answers. Sometimes a 45 day course of Tylan is needed.

Re: Weight loss

Ok just keep it in the back of your mind if the poop stays bad you might need a grain free, without peas or lentils. Good luck

Re: Weight loss

Hi Sherri, what food are you feeding?most dogs do better on a grain free diet as the grain can interfere with how the enzymes work. Are you incubating the enzymes with the food before serving? The start point is 1 level teaspoon enzyme per 1 cup kibble. Is there any way to feed a meal right after wo...

Ruhroh Lucy!
Next time that happens you can feed some enzymes in food after the fact and it might ease the tummy.
