Indeed, people here are extremely helpful, taking time and attention out of their lives to help new people, it is no easy task! thank you very much everyone!

Dear Jean, may I ask you about the TLI test values range in the UK? our test result was done in the Netherlands lab, and their normal range is 15-50 ng/l not the same as US reference range cited on this page or TAMU cite. I was wondering if it's the same in the UK?
I am Anna, my German Shepherd Thor is 2 y.o. we live in Eastern Europe. The TLI result came back from the Netherland laboratory as 14.0 but their normal range is 15-50. I still give Creon 25000 with every meal, started Pet Factor B-12. He has diarrhea often and started Tylosin 1/4 tsp.
