Dosing help

Post by Michele » 21 Jan 2022, 15:46

I just received an order of Pantenex. According to the company they are a 10x product. Compared to my last label of enzyme Diane 6x, the values are higher on the 6x from Diane. Considerably higher. In your valued opinion, how would you dose the Pantenex? The way my brain is calculating, I would need to actually increase the Pantenex. We use 3/4 tsp per cup of food of enzyme Diane. I’ve had an EPI boy for 8 years and this has me questioning my purchase. 😬

Nikki was on Viokase before we switched to Pan-Tenex.

We just use 1 tsp per meal, like we did with the Viokase and no issues at all.
Nikki was diagnosed with EPI in 2010
Royal Canin Gastrointestinal Low Fat canned
Slippery Elm syrup for stomach issues
1 tsp Pan-Tenex enzymes with each meal
Weekly B12 shots, pills didn't work for her
Tylan for life

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.........
