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.........

In Columbia.... here are some resources:

3. For SIBO you need Tylosina powder/200 mg capsules. Agrocampo sells it. Flagyl will also work. (Hopefully Agrocampo still sells Tylosin 200mg capsules!). Elanco does not import Tylan to Colombia .

4. There is a vet on Bogota, Columbia, Dr Diego Ordoñezf. He was at UNal Clinica para Animales Pequeños. He is a very good and knowledgeable vet. His email is cpadaordenezf@gmail.com

5. For B12 you can buy injectable from any pharmacy. I use hidroxicobalamina

Hi Olesia,

I read the brochure for Colombia and Agrocampo doesn't sell Tylon. I also try to email the vet and it is a wrong email :(. I will try to find him since I found the place where he works.

Thanks for your help

thanks for letting me know that the email is wrong.... if you do get the correct email or any contact information, please let me know so that i may update the information.
Also... if you do find where Tylan (Tylosin Tartrate soluble powder) might be available... again.... please let me know.

If you cannot get any Tylosin... then ask your vet if they can get Oxytetracycline antibiotic. IN the UK.... there is a product called Oxytet.... not sure if something similar is in Columbia.
