Persistence Pays

Owners must strongly advocate for their dogs’ health.

We were just about to let our subscription expire when we received the March issue and noticed the article, “Starving, Not Starved.” We couldn’t believe our eyes! Our black Lab-mix fit all of the descriptions of this horrible disease, endocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI). Despite many trips to, and many treatments at, different vets, this condition was never mentioned. We are sending a copy of the article to our vets with the hope that it will prevent suffering by pets thus afflicted. We’ll never know for sure if our dog had EPI, but if she had, and had been diagnosed, what a different life she would have had. Thank you for your excellent publication. We’re enclosing a renewal card and a picture of our late dog, Nala.
