One Size Does Not Fit All


October 27, 2016 by The Dog Rules

If I had to chose a single thing or idea that stands out as a significant part of Drift’s recovery it is that one has to take a look at the needs of the individual. Yes, Drift had needs in common with other dogs with EPI. He also had a rather more sensitive response to the digestive enzyme than the veterinarians had anticipated.

When I took Drift to his next hospital appointment he was again gaining weight and the bleeding ulcers in his mouth and throat were healing well. My kitchen floor no longer looked like a small animal had been brutally murdered near his food bowl. He was back to playing with his toys and being a dog.The Stick Wrestler

The veterinarian wanted to know how he was doing and what exactly was I doing that was working so well for him. I took a deep breath and hoped she would really consider what I had to say and not dismiss it out of hand. I told her that I had completely reworked his diet and the amount of enzyme I was giving him.

Thankfully, she listened to the information I had to share and my reasoning for why I completely changed his diet. She had not previously know about the resource at and wanted to do some research there herself.

The best part of this experience is that the vet said: “Carry on with what you’re doing. It is clearly working for him.”

The Dog Rules

Once the proud guardian of a rather cheeky Border Collie/Aussie Cattle Dog mix, may she forever rest in peace, my favourite activities were those things that included my canine friend. Now I have a new canine buddy in my life. He's also a Border Collie and sassy like my girl was. We're in the middle of an adventure; teaching him how to be a good canine citizen I spend my spare time volunteering at the local animal shelter as a dog walker/trainer. You can read all about it @
