I am glad you are seeing an improvement. Keep up the good work.

I've never used it so I'm no help. I changed my pups to Victors recently and I'm pretty happy with that,

I'm so very sorry for your loss. She was a great dog and a wonderful friend that will be missed. I think if a Vet tech had said that to me I would have slugged them....sorry, just saying. I'm sorry she made you feel worse as such a difficult time to begin with,

Good dog Abbey!

It's hard for the humans. It's hard to watch the decline. I wish the news were better, I wish more of them lived to be pain free in their old age. May Abbey be joyful, may her pain be managed, may you have many more years with her.

Thank you. I am going to go through my pics and get a print made for each of the GSD's. Then I am going to get the key chain and hang under each picture.

I'm sorry. She was beautiful. Sometimes I gather pictures of their life and remember them at different stages, and the different things we did together. Sometimes it helps me. We all grieve differently. It is so difficult to lose them because having them was so very good. She was loved, and had a good life with you.

Yep. Abbey likes having her meal at the same time every night. We've recently started feeding her a little bit at breakfast time so now soon as we're up... she's waiting to be fed her breakfast-snack.

Every time I put on my tennis shoes, even if I just walked her, she thinks it's time for the walk. Girl loves her walks!

I would probably argue higher allergens to meat proteins, but from observations on the forums, higher intolerances/food sensitivities to grains. I've never had a dog that could tolerate grains. (But I've only had three dogs.)

ETA: Hi Lori, good to see you wink

I'm so very sorry to hear this sad news, Rosa. Eli was such a sweet, lovable handsome dog and he was so lucky to have you as his mom. He had the best life that any dog could ever have and he loved his life, and you. Take care of yourself and know that a lot of people are thinking of you and sending loving, healing thoughts your way.

Rest in peace, Eli. angel

Are you stilll looking for food options?

I home cooked for my GSD for several years when he had chronic moderate pancreatitis. When we had to do surgery (for something else) the surgeon snagged a biopsy of his pancreas. It was finally healthy again.

With my dog, I boiled beef (which I know he wasnít allergic to) until it was dead, strained and rinsed it;, stirred in 33% brown rice, 33% non fat plain Greek yogurt (watch for thickeners and artificial sweeteners. Chobani, Fage, Safeway Organics and Walmart brand were safe). Iíd switch up the rice with baked/ nuked sweet or regular potatoes ((skins left on), quinoa, sometimes barley.

You can use chicken if your dog isnít allergic to it.

The important thing is to get Balance It at

Iíve had two veteraninary internists in two different states prescribe it for my dog. Itís not technically a prescription item, but I always recommend reviewing the diet with your veterinarian.

You can just order it online. Balance It Plus has almost no flavor and is easier to stir into food than regular Balance it. It can also be reheated. Both are good products. My dog just preferred Plus more. They ship nearly instantly.

Treats were non fat cottage cheese, reduced fat string cheese (which is already low fat) and merrick beef lung. My goal was to reduce his fat intake level as low as possible

Anyhow, my dog did well so well, his pancreas healed completely. Now he eats Royal Canin HP rx diet which is a lower fat hypoallergenic diet, but I donít have to obsess about his fat intake level. He gets to eat ice cream!
