    2. The only way to confirm Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) is with a TLI (Trypsin-Like Immunoreactivity) blood test. If your dog is newly diagnosed with Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI), once the dog appears to be stabling out (after starting treatment with enzymes) Not necessary, but if possible, talk to your vet about re-testing with another TLI test to eliminate any rare false-positive reads and confirm EPI.

    15. The unfortunate thing about vaccinosis is that people don't get involved in learning about it until after there is a problem, and by then it's often too late. Vaccinosis is the term used for "reactions our pets have to being vaccinated." It is far more common than we are lead to believe. In fact, most veterinarians refuse to talk about it because they are the ones who give the shots that cause Vaccinosis

    4. Finding out your dog has EPi can take a long time and expense; Unfortunately it is a very misunderstood disease and many vets are not up on handling it. If your in crisis, post here and know that EPI is not a death sentence, sure a few EPI dogs will not recover, but most live long healthy lives
