Hi Just came on line and saw your post. I was allergic to the powder and was told by when I called for help to stay away from the powder totally. Why because I was having a problem with my tongue tingling and starting to swell. My alternative and it worked great for over 10 years was CREON capsules. You can get them from Chemist Wearhouse,. You can try one at a time at each meal with 2 cups of food. or what ever works for you. You will have to try it out. I was using (2 )10,000 units of Creon at each meal with 2 cups of food.
It worked great for me and for my dog. She was about 50 lbs. Collie. (I say was because she passed away this October at 10 1/2 years old.)

It worked great. I would either put it in her bowl with the food or just put them in my hand with a little water on them so they could slide down her throat. She would like them up from my hand. No messing with any powder and never have to open the capsules. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU .

:D

Creon looks like a good alternative. It seems this pill is only shipped from Australia. Is there something in the United States I can get maybe cheaper.

Hi Andrew - I think I saw on another thread you've been in touch with Olesia. Please let us know if the Creon works for you.

I originally was getting Creon here in the U.S. but it kept going up in price till I wasn't able to keep up the money required to purchase the Creon here. That is why I was getting Creon through Chemist Warehouse.
