Creon vs powdered enzymes

Post by Pattib » 28 Oct 2019, 18:53

I was having so much luck with the powdered enzymes. In just 3 weeks Tinkerbell’s poop is perfect and she is gaining weight. However, now she has mouth sores and won’t eat the food. Should I try creon instead? Should I stop the enzymes for a few days? I’m just so frustrated and sad that I’ve caused her pain. She is only 10 pounds and can’t afford to lose any weight. She is 16 and has no teeth so only softish food will do. She hates green tripe and won’t eat it. She likes cottage cheese and pumpkin but won’t eat the I/D canned food w/ enzymes now. Please help!

You might try putting her dose of enzymes in a gel capsule for a few days and feed right before the meal. I bought a capsule machine and gel caps from Amazon. To discourage mouth sores once they heal, try washing the mouth area with water, giving ice cubes, anything that cleans the enzymes off. Letting the food incubate longer will help. Maybe 30 to 45 minutes.
