Small Dog Makes Full Recovery After Acute Pancreatitis!

Posted by Michael Peterson on

This is Harry. He had an awful attack of acute pancreatitis after some bad salmon and we nearly lost him. We strongly believe GastroElm was integral to his recovery. We are almost three years post-attack and he still gets his GastroElm every day. If we think he’s a bit “off” on any given day, we just double up. Thank you for helping us save Harry! Heather D.

A Dog with Diabetes & Pancreatitis Regains His Appetite!

Posted by Michael Peterson on

Wow! I don’t know why I waited so long to try this on my pancreatic corgi! Loki just turned 11 on August 6, 2019. He was diagnosed with Diabetes and Pancreatitis on December 26, 2017. It was rough in the beginning, but things smoothed over a little after getting him on some prescribed Rx diet. But he was never really into it after all this time. And recently it had gotten much worse. Getting him to eat was like pulling teeth.     A few times since his diagnosis, he had rough days where I thought for sure he was...
