“I took Emilia in to foster from a rescue at about 3 months old. She was pooping all the time and we didn’t know if it was just that puppy behavior. She eventually started pooping blood and got very sick. She was rushed to the E.R. where it was believed she had EPI. She is a very happy dog and I knew I couldn’t give up on her. EPI has definitely been a journey. It is one of the hardest things I’ve dealt with, as there is no one to provide the answers to this condition. When I first found out that Emilia had EPI and began to research the cost that pharmaceutical companies charged for 8 oz. of enzymes (average $89), I knew it would not be affordable for me as a foster and potential adopter (and owner of two other rescue dogs) nor would anyone want to take that on. I began to read all I could about this condition and began researching more affordable treatments when I found Pan-tenex.
I started her on the Pan-tenex on Friday evening of the 12th. There was a noticeable difference after the first three days. First, I noticed right away that the Pan-tenex had more of a pork/meat smell to it and it was not powdery or dusty at all. In the three days, I notice Emilia’s stool was a good medium brown as opposed to the darker browns I am used to seeing. I usually keep her on a low maintenance dose of the Tylosin, so I remove it some days just to see how she does. I have seen more of a consistent good medium brown color, so much so I can’t tell the difference with my other dog. Most people would think “poop talk” is crazy, but that’s a big deal in the EPI world! I’ve also noticed that the volume of stool is a lot less, which is fantastic! That alone is huge. She has also gone less frequently from an average of four-five times a day to an average of just three. I could swear she is already gaining weight as her ribs are not as prominent and I have already seen so much improvement with your product.
I can’t thank you enough for Pan-tenex, and wonder how she would have progressed had I found it sooner. I feel good about her improvement and am more confident I don’t have to worry about her losing weight again. Emilia truly has been an inspiration to me, and maybe she can inspire others.”
