AMAZON SMILE USA

Just a heads up, if like me, you spend too much with Amazon. you can use EPI4DOGS as your charity of choice in Amazon USA, and we will get a donation from them, unfortunately, we can't in the UK choose EPI4DOGS as our charity of choice, so I donate to my friend's GSD rescue in Scotland

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/chpf/homepage?orig=%2F

We have just been awarded $400.00 ish, which adds up to over $4700.00 since it started which is wonderful, and it all goes to the website, and research.

The staff of EPI4DOGS are all volunteers , and some have been like me for over 10 years and loved every minute of it

My Kara was so ill when we started in 2010, and she was given a 50/50 chance of survival, she was 39 pounds at 14 months old and it broke my heart, my vet refused to give up on her, and we had her to 10 yrs old , or should I say she had us , and I thank this website, and Olesia our founder for all of the work and time she gives up for our animals all over the world

Take care everyone

My name is Jean we live in Liverpool in Uk

My Kara born 21 July 2009 diagnosed with EPI by cTLI test August 2010 TLI = <1...folate 14 Cobalamin 408, shot down to 94, b12 injections every other day

Lowest weight 39 pounds

We used Panzym enzymes, Tylan and Chemeyes b12 capsules

Using AMAZON SMILE has certainly given a big boost to Epi4Dogs Foundation finances.... it's amazing how it has all added up.
Thank you to ALL who do use Amazon Smile and lists Epi4Dogs Fdn Inc as their charity.
Olesia, was owned by Izzy, a 35lb Spanish Water Dog (SWD), Diagnosed at 1.5 years old - TLI results 1.. Izzy passed away on February 13, 2020 at 15 years old. She lived with EPI for 13+1/2 years. It was because of Izzy that Epi4Dogs was started... she was the inspiration. May her legacy of helping others with EPI continue for as long as needed.........

Such great news to hear. I get an e-mail every once in a while from Amazon saying how much they have donated to EPI. I, of course, have EPI listed as my charity for all of our purchases. Love that Amazon does this ---- every little bit helps!

Sadie is a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever ("Toller" for short). She eats Authority Grain Free Chicken & Pea kibble. To make sure she ingests the enzymes, we mix some No Sodium Chicken Broth and a small handful of meat - chicken, hamburger, pork - and stir it up with her dog food (she eats like a champ now!). With each meal she gets 5 scoops (1 1/4 tsp's) of Diane's Enzymes and a WonderLabs B-12 with Intrinsic factor. She gets 1 Proviable-DC probiotic per day. Diagnosed in September 2019 with EPI. She has some issues with dry skin we are dealing with now.
