EPI? What EPI? 😁

I know he's not stable yet, so I do wait for the other shoe to drop. But for now I am on cloud 9! Output from today. (In comments)

PERFECT! Isn't it grand when after all the trial and error.... you finally hit upon the magic EPI protocol that best suits your dog??! :)
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.........

AMAZING! Do you feed Herding Dogs?
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). Taste of the Wild High Prairie, 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.

Bet you did a double-take! Well done!
Montgomery was born 20 March 2012. He eats extra lean ground chicken and lean ground beef completed with Alnutrin and freeze-dried chicken liver, with hard-cooked egg. He gets two size zero capsules of Enzyme Diane's enzymes at each of his six meals, and Dr. Maggie at breakfast. He's a strong, fearless little Spitfire with a real Merlin engine.

What is Herding Dogs? Is it a brand of food?

I make his food (raw). It is a LOT of work though.

Sadly though the other shoe did drop and he's back on antibiotics yet again. Looks like I'm going to have to do some type of antibiotic long term; but hopefully at a reduced dose.

Yes Sport Dog herding elite is a food dogs do well on but is currently hard to find.
Some dogs are on reduced Tylan for life.
