Enzymes

Post by K Stott » 05 Jul 2019, 13:14

Good day all. I originally joined this forum about 8 years ago but haven't been on it for several years so I just re registered. Unfortunately we had to put our Phoenix down a few days ago and I have enzymes and medications specifically for EPI dogs so I thought this would be the best place to find someone who may be in need of them. I recently received a 1 kg bag of Enzyme Diane's Pancreatin 6X so there is quite a bit left. I have a couple of bottles of Wonderlab Pet Factor B12 w/instrinsic factor and some Metronidazole 250 mg pills.
I live in Mississauga, Ontario Canada and work in Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada, so if there is anyone in this area please let me know.
Thanks

Hello i am very sorry to read about Phoenix i lost my gal last year so i do know how you are feeling.Thank you so much for your generous offer of the enzymes if it is okay with you may we share this on our FB page as well?
Run free Phoenix .
Maddie DX April 2011 along with low B12 she was feed with a low fibre food below 3% , fat was not restricted ( she wasnt good on pea based foods ) She initially had a course of B12 shots weekly over a period of 6 months and then we used the B12 pills from Chemeyes in the UK . We used Panzym and slowly had to increase the dose as she aged when she was first DX she was 23kg but she gained weight quickly and got back to 33 kg .
Maddie gained her angel wings in Jan 2018 at the age of 10 to a condition unrelated to EPI.

I am so sorry to hear about Phoenix... it is never easy to say good bye to our 4 legged companions.....but hopefully the good memories will someday soon ease the loss.

Regarding the enzymes, B12 and metro.....first thank you for you generosity and for thinking of others during such a sad time for you. Let me check around... what would be great is if we can find an EPI parent that lives in Canada that can benefit from it.... as that will greatly save on shipping/custom charges.

I will let you know what i find out...
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.

Thank you Barb
It gets a little better every day but I know it will take a while. The house is so quite now and I miss that pretty face snuggling up to me every morning. Appreciate your thoughts.
