“In March of 2017 Ophelia, a standard poodle, discovered the very negative effects of eating baby squirrels…Yep, she contacted Giardia. After multiple treatment attempts her weight just kept dropping, she had massive diarrhea and would try to eat the stools. She was always ravenously hungry and no matter how much I fed her she just kept losing weight. Our amazing vet had said at first the symptoms didn’t fit with that disease, and wanted to test for EPI, or Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency. But I hesitated, because how could a genetic disorder pop up in a 3 year old? Anyway, so we ran the test and sure enough it came back positive. Here was the problem, the pancreatic enzymes from the vet were $130 for a one month supply, and Ophelia would need to stay on them for the rest of her life (she’s only 3, and poodles are usually long-lived). I love her but was devastated to think of this expense. Not to mention that the supply from the vet didn’t seem to be 100% effective, and they suggested adding more of the enzymes to her diet. Even more money?!?
I started looking around online and found many digestive supplements but none had the same enzyme concentration as the prescription from the vet. I was actually contemplating re-homing Ophelia, because I just couldn’t imagine how I could sustain the expense. But then I stumbled upon Pan-tenex. It was about 1/3 the price, for the same amount of enzyme (by weight). I tried it, and almost overnight Ophelia’s symptoms were controlled! Now when we go to training I give her a little enzyme cocktail so that the training treats don’t upset her digestive system, and she routinely gets the enzymes on her food each morning and night.
My girl, who started at 55 pounds had dropped to 43 pounds at her lowest point. Now she is holding steady at about 50, which is a great accomplishment! Thanks Pan-tenex, you’ve made a believer out of me. Keep making such a great product because my beautiful curly girl will need it for about 12 more years!”
