Cobalamin deficiency is a prevalent condition in canine and feline chronic enteropathies (CE) and exocrine pancreatic ...

Abstract

Objective - To test the hypothesis that exchange of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) for long-chain triglycerides (LCTs) in the diet of dogs with well-managed exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) changes serum biochemical variables and to subjectively assess the well-being of dogs with EPI in...

Abstract

In this retrospective study 61 dogs suffering from exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) were analysed regarding signalement, therapy and therapeutic success as well as survival time. With the help of two veterinary diagnostic laboratories, dogs with a trypsin-like immunoreactivity <2.5 µg/l were selected if the result was at least 1.5 years old or older. The veterinarian who diagnosed EPI was contacted and interviewed on the basis of a questionnaire. There were 27 (44%) German Shepherd Dogs, 17 mixed ...
