When you leave the vet’s office with your dog newly diagnosed with EPI you are probably thinking about the costs that the vet has just thrown at you.  Perhaps it was a bag of prescription food at $80, and a 12 oz bottle of enzymes at $150, then there are the antibiotics and b12 shots and your mind is swimming.  Take a step back and look at the list below.  There are other enzyme options.  There are Prescription enzymes, over the counter enzymes and then the Pancreatin sold at EnzymeDiane.com.  These enzymes are all relatively the same.  They are porcine based and most dogs tolerate them well.  Check out the cost differences, the prices differ from 37 cents a teaspoon to almost $2 a teaspoon!  EPI dogs should have a low fat, low fiber diet.  There are dogs that can have a bit more fat or fiber and do fine.  Each EPI dog is different here is a possible list of foods to try.  While most do better on a grain free diet I fed my EPI dog a kibble that had grain in it for 2 years successfully (  I changed because of price). 

By doing some reading and talking to those that are dealing with an EPI dog you will be able to find more cost effective ways to treat EPI.




These are basic costs of treating EPI.  These are estimates and you may find things to be more or less expensive in your area 
You may also choose to use Probiotics, vitamins and other supplements.   
This is only a basic list of the minimum a dog with EPI may require.
