Thank you so much for the update! Since things have improved a little bit, I would just keep it up, for now. This process can take awhile.

Tucker's poop has never been as firm as my four other dogs', but it is very pick-up-able, so I've decided to be happy with the vast improvement. In the beginning, three years ago, we had yellow milkshake poop, and he wanted to eat it, so our current situation is very tolerable.

Stay in touch, and if things start going downhill someone here will have ideas. I love the sweet potato! ----Pam
Tucker is a shepherd/lab mix; he has tested positive on the ScheBo test for EPI, as well as the fasting TLI. Results--- TLI 1.3, Folate 9.7, Cobalamin 666, Lipase 38. Currently taking Diane's Enzymes 4 teaspoons/day, Wonderlabs B12 one capsule per day, two capsules slippery elm/evening, 1 Proviable capsule/day, and Tylan 1/32 teaspoon/ morning (to hold SID at bay). Sport Dog Elite, herding dogs 4 cups/day, with a couple tablespoons of Fresh Pet mixed in, because everybody else gets some. No more poop eating, has gone from 60 to 95!!! pounds, and he is a happy member of the family, though a bit of a stinker, if you ask the other dogs. Tucker is my boyfriend, and my husband is OK with that.

stay the course for a few more days and since this produced better looking stools.... after a few more days... try increasing the Lypex even further with another 1/2 capsule and see if that improves things or make things worse...........

Please keep us posted!
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.........
