Our German Shepherd Bailey - started with EPI aged 2 - he was originally started on a pill but we found that Panzym worked better - he is fed James Wellbeloved and mixed with a some tinned Butchers tripe mix - he is now eight years old and doing really well.
My German Shepherd developed EPI at 3 years old, having tried alternative products which were expensive and not that effective we tried Panzym with amazing results.She only needs 1/2 teaspoon per meal and for a 34Kg dog this means the 600g pot lasts over 4 months. we orginally started on a higher dose but once you have your dog stabilised you should reduce the dose to find the minimum dose they need, otherwise you will be wasting money and this product is not cheap. Make sure your dog is on a low fat diet and do not feed treats as this upsets them, we feed chappie complete moistened with water and mixed with a small amount of chappie tinned food, this makes it more interesting and tasty for them once you have mixed in the product. Hope this information helps someone.
Absolutely brilliant and cost effective solution for dealing with EPI in a German Shepherd. I used to have my dog on an alternative brand and he was still a bit up and down with his illness. I found this product on VetUK and decided to give it a try. He has been on it nearly a year now and no problems since or returns to the vet. He has put weight on and is now looking better than ever. Have also found I use less than the other brand and it is cheaper.
Maybe I should have emailed to ask what the specific ingredients were, maybe VetUK should start having detailed ingredients on all the products they sell as standard information provided on the website. This product contains yeast. I guess it's there to make it more palatable to sprinkle on the food (clearly designed with dogs in mind rather than cats). However, yeast? In a product that is there to combat digestive problems? Unfortunately, it made my cat's issue worse. I'll never know if the enzymes will help, but I am quite convinced the yeast increased her diarrhoea issues. Money wasted, I'm afraid.
My german shepherd developed epi when he was two years old, we thought we were going to lose him as he'd become emaciated,after being diagnosed with epi and put on panzym powder he is now back to his old self.after browsing the net and finding VetUK I am saving an incredible amount of money, as what i was paying the vet was treble the amount im paying vetuk.
I would highly recommend Panzym to anyone whose pet is suffering from EPI. The product supplied by my vet not only was very expensive it was very smelly and lingered about the house. I found this product on the internet and thought I would give it a try. Works a treat. No smell. I just mix in with my English Bull Terrier's dried food with a little water. No problem.
