yep.. we all do a whole lot of crossing paws and fingers here on Ei4Dogs :D
Seriously though, glad to hear that things are going well !!!
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.........

Hi! So glad Lucy is doing well! Ziska was so resilient re: EPI...she always responded well to enzymes, etc. But our epi GSD previously, Onza, was a different story. She was SO sensitive to enzymes, food, etc. From the time she was diagnosed with epi at 4 y/o until she passed at about 13 y/o, we had to give her 3 meals a day & grind her food in a blender so that every bit of food was covered/incubated with enzymes, etc. She was well worth all the effort---as all of our epi pups are! So glad Lucy is thriving. She is beautiful!
epi4dogs helped save our sweet Onza's life when she was 4 years old. We lost her in March 2017; she was almost 13. She was in the Chunky Monkey Club! We rescued precious Ziska shortly after losing Onza. She was 30 lbs and approx 7-8 yrs old - every bone in her body showed. We had her tested for EPI ...the rest is history. Who saved who?? We lost Ziska in February 2022. Both of our EPI dogs will be in our hearts forever -- they touched so many lives!

So glad Lucy is doing so well! It is so rewarding to see our pups put on weight and start to look like they did before EPI was diagnosed. We had several doctors look at Kolby for various reasons during his life and they would register total shock that he had EPI because he looked so robust. Of course, it was due to all the help I received here to keep it that way because he did not like the enzymes. LOL

Congrats again on Lucy's great update.
