2020 EPI Calendars-start taking pictures!!!!

2020 EPI CALENDARS
Image

If you are interested in your EPI companion being a participant in the 2020 EPI Calendar(s)..... start taking pictures- -many photo ops with summertime here and 4th of July Holiday fast approaching!!!!


1. Picture submission begins June 30, 2019 and ends August 31, 2019
2. Pictures need to be submitted to: Epipics0059@gmail.com
3. In October, Calendars will be available to order directly from the CreatePhotoCalendar website. As in the past, you can first view the calendars from links the on the Epi4Dogs website” EPI Products” page.

PHOTO’S
Photos that are funny shots, beautiful poses, action takes, photos with friends and family, or even just playing with other canine/feline buddies.. all photo's/multiple photos are welcome.

Photos need to be good resolution (minimum 300kb)... most modern digital cameras are already set to take high enough resolution pictures.

And as always, we will honor those EPI companions that we had to sadly say good bye to with one month in each calendar dedicated as the Memorial page.

When submitting your photos, please:

1. include your first & last name and your pet’s first name
2. for memorial pictures, please also include beginning and ending dates
3. email you photo's as attachments

CALENDARS
Due to a big price increase in the calendar production, we have increased the cost as follows:
Calendar donation inside USA (shipping & handling included) will be $28 per calendar.
Calendar donation outside USA (shipping & handling included) will be $32 per calendar.

All net donations from these calendars will go in their entirety to our 501c3 public charity organization, The Epi4Dogs Foundation, Inc.

Epi4Dogs Foundation Inc.’s mission is the advancement of science and education relating to EPI (Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency), yielding useful insights and positive outcomes in better managing EPI in dogs and cats. Our goals are to support and/or collaborate with veterinary EPI research and researchers, and to promote EPI awareness by educating the general public, pet owners, pet organizations, rescue and shelter organizations, veterinary schools and veterinarians.

A full accounting of calendar production & processing costs and donations will be posted on the Epi4Dogs website. In the past, we have allocated calendar donations completely to EPI Research and EPI Awareness and we will continue to distribute all donations in the same manner.
Zero dollars go to administration fees as Epi4Dogs is a 100% volunteer organization.

FYI.... I am also re-typing the email address with extra spaces so that you can read the full email address as some social networks won't display the full email address: Epipics0059 @ gmail . com

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.

Can I remind everyone to start snapping your EPI VIP'S for the 2020 calendar

the end date for submission is 31st August 2019

Also, if you would like to submit a memorial set of pictures, please do , its a lovely way to remember your loved ones

I loved a saying

"heaven is how people hold you in their heart when you are gone"

whatever religion you are, or are not , its a beautiful sentiment

and a calendar is a perfect place

Cheers everyone
