Bad Lucy getting into food

Post by wsantschi » 26 Jun 2022, 21:03

Our Lucy managed to get into our son's dog's food. Fortunately, there wasn't a whole lot left. And, we have photo evidence. Probably gonna be a bad gastro day or two. Bad girl, Lucy!😂

Ruhroh Lucy!
Next time that happens you can feed some enzymes in food after the fact and it might ease the tummy.

Thx, Jill. I think she'll be ok. There wasn't a lot left in Sadie's bin. And, I'll sprinkle a little more enzyme tomorrow morning.

oh dear... and that expression on Lucy's face... GUILT!!!!!

When they do naughty things like this,,, what we advise is like what Jill mentioned..... just give them a little food with enzymes in it as soon as you can after they eat something they shouldn't... this usually helps with the unwanted after affects.

Hope tomorrow goes well and that you don't see a lot of "soft-serve" poos......................

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.........

Must be a full moon or something. Saturday Harley took a full pound cake off the counter and got in the garbage for the roast chicken carcass. Her gut is paying the price. Thank God for the dog door!
Harley is a 3 year old GSD Diagnosis was confirmed 2/4/2022. PLI <30, TLI<1.0. She is currently managed with PancrePlus, B-12 supplement and probiotics. She has show great improvement with treatment already!

Oh, that's as awful as it is adorable. Those pix!

I've been wondering if others' EPI dogs were inveterate counter surfers and pantry raiders. I get that our pups experienced starvation and learned early to steal food if they got any chance, but I swear Trixie is worse about it now than when she was actually starving. It's getting harder and harder to find places for food that she can't climb onto, break into, or simply grab a snack the second our backs are turned.

And yes, she's been known to wear a "necklace" from a bin or a trash can. Lucy has joined the stylish EPI crowd, apparently. :D
Trixie is an Australian cattle dog or mix, likely born in the Fall of 2020. Picked up as a stray, she was already suffering undiagnosed EPI when we adopted her. Test later showed TLI <1 and cobalamin 189.

Her (non-standard) treatment is 1900 mcg of pure freeze-dried pork pancreas from Allergy Research Group per day. Also 1/4 teaspoon of slippery elm powder and one capsule a day of WonderLabs TrinFac-B, all mixed into her food and served immediately, without the usual 20-minute wait.

We're still working on finding the perfect food, but she's doing well and has "happy" normal poops. Her cobalamin level, after 3+ months of oral B12 supplementation, is 932.

oh my goodness..... over the years we have had lots of stories of naughty doggies eating things they shouldn't.... my favorite was one of an EPI dog that ate a box of crayons.... and for days afterwards pooped rainbow colored poo :lol:

Lucy got BUSTED!!! I hope she's OK, but that whoops! face is priceless.
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 80 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.

Omigosh! Don't let Lucy play cards.....she does NOT have a poker face. She is beautiful, though, and could charm the shirt off the players. Priceless.
