Good reminder!!!! and a VERY helpful tool too!
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.........

Thanks for the information.
Just wanted to give an update. Xieri, my Shepherd, is doing better. No diarrhea. I increased her enzyme to 1 tsp per cup of food. The vet had her on 1 tsp per meal. She was on metronidazole for 8 day’s. I also added Slippery Elm and oral B12 w/intrinsic factor. I’m hoping we’re done with diarrhea.
Thanks for all the great Information.

Nati has been using 1/2 of slippery elm per meal for two days now. Her poop before slippery elm was brown and I could pick It up easy. Now it is a weird yellow whitish green color and it’s very soft. Think she is having a reaction to slippery elm.also she is finally out of her royal canine gastrointestinal low fat. I bought her some victor professional formula and was thinking about switching her. Anyone tried that food? Also has anyone’s dog had a bad reaction to slippery elm. Felt like we were making progress until she started that
