When I inherited Pixie from my mother-in-law, I was very nervous about managing her EPI. She had already been diagnosed, but as my m-i-l’s health deteriorated, apparently Pixie’s did, too. She was a skinny minny 11.2 lbs. when we got her. I was really afraid she would die before we could figure this out. Then I found this site and started to feel better. It was nice to hear people say that yes, it’s tricky at first, but it’s doable! Between all the great advice I got on here and the expertise of Pixie’s vet (who was also receptive to learning more and trying new things – yeah!), she’s now a healthy, happy 18.6 lb. cutie pie! She’s also training in Rally-O and agility, and having a wonderful time! I feel extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful group of people to go to for advice and support.
