This story is extra special to me personally as it is an exemplary example of how the wonderful members of epi4dogs reach out and help one another from all-around the world … and how even if someone does not have access to the “standard” EPI protocol medications…..you can STILL successfully and effectively manage EPI……. thank you Sachini for sharing your story with us… and thank you Devika for reaching out and helping Sachini !!!
Deena from Sri LankaNov 1,
2012 (4 mo)
When Deena was 5 months of age in December 20, 2012 I noticed that she was not growing up as her brother and sister.
March 3, 2013 (8 mo)
Little by little she started losing weight. I had no idea what was wrong with her because Deena ate more than the others. When she was 8 months old in March 2013 her weight was only 5 kgs. One day i saw her eating her own poop, newspapers, clothes and small pebbles.
With these details Denna’s vet Dr. Niranjala Paranamanna suspected that she was suffering from EPI.
The vet wanted me to give raw pancreas because in a country like Sri Lanka we have no medicine for EPI.

Raw pancreas did not help her well. In July 2013 Deena was 1 year old. She was just skins and bones. We lost hope for her. She hardly moved around. I started to search the internet to get some help for her. http://www.epi4dogs.com/ gave us hope and i was very happy about it.
Olesia Kennedy and Devika Pande replied with the correct way on how to overcome the situation.
CREON 10, Metronidazole and wheat free food gave Deena her life back. Within 3 months she gained 8kg and now she is 15kg in weight.
