4TH JULY CELEBRATIONS

Please enjoy

but our four footed friends do not fare well

the Thunder shirts are a good idea, but letting them hide is probably the best way

no chocolate

Thank you, Jean.

Here at our place, we've just given Trixie a tranquilizer and will soon put her in her safe little "den" (crate) for the night. She's been on high alert, patrolling the house constantly and going nuts with barking every time anyone within a half-mile radius sets off a firework.
Trixie is an Australian cattle dog or mix, likely born in the Fall of 2020. Picked up as a stray, she was already suffering undiagnosed EPI when we adopted her. Test later showed TLI <1 and cobalamin 189.

Her (non-standard) treatment is 1900 mcg of pure freeze-dried pork pancreas from Allergy Research Group per day. Also 1/4 teaspoon of slippery elm powder and one capsule a day of WonderLabs TrinFac-B, all mixed into her food and served immediately, without the usual 20-minute wait.

We're still working on finding the perfect food, but she's doing well and has "happy" normal poops. Her cobalamin level, after 3+ months of oral B12 supplementation, is 932.
