ANNOUNCEMENTS BOX ABOVE FORUM BOX

Post by Jean » 14 Nov 2018, 09:05

Hello all

As you know, we announce all sorts of things, and we make them "sticky", this means they stay where they are for generally a week, sometimes more, depending on the importance of the topic.

However, we are losing some valuable information as the thread/post, moves down the page

So from now on, I will move each one of these to the anouncements box, where they will stay until they are way out of date

I will also consider other topics for quick reference to save people searching when they haven't the time, or, are stressed out

I look forward to any ideas

Jean

This is an excellent idea Jean!!! Thanks so much for doing this.

It will be a lot easier for folks on the forum simply seeking EPI help to not be bogged down with "special" topics first..... and then knowing that these special topics won't get lost over time on the forum and instead will reside on the Announcement page :)
Olesia, owned by Izzy, a 35lb Spanish Water Dog (SWD), Diagnosed at 1.5 years old - TLI results 1.3, Doing great 12+ years later! Once stable at 3+ months, was able to reduce enzymes to only 1/2 tsp of Enzymes (use EnzymeDiane's 6x) with each cup of food, but as she aged- -had to go back 1 tsp enzymes per cup of food. Fed various grain-free kibble+real meat, 6x pancreatin enzymes from EnzymeDiane., gave 1 tsp of coconut oil / fish oil daily .... until she developed Diabetes and she now cannot tolerate higher fat foods. Currently feed an 80% home-made diet of sweet potato, a lean meat/fish, 1/3 of a raw egg, fat free cottage cheese, fish oil+vitamins and bone meal with 20% Annamaet Lean & Grain Free kibble. This combo has regulated her Diabetes (takes Vetsulin) and EPI and is very well managed. In Feb 2013, Izzy developed a very serious condition called IMHA which she (thankfully) beat and is now in remission. This is when we discovered that she also developed Diabetes & Low Thyroid. Izzy was able to receive excellent care because of the generosity of folks on Epi4dogs! Izzy continues to wake up every day full of joy. I am not a vet. All of my suggestions/recommendations are based on personal experiences, observations, information gleaned from EPI researchers & pet parents alike, and EPI research. Please share with your vet everything we suggest.
