Wallace is a rescue dog being cared for by German Shepherd Rescue Scotland. He came into rescue at 10 months old being diagnosed with Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) at 6 months old. I was asked to be his foster carer, I knew before Wallace arrived that I was going to have to do my research and learn about EPI and fast.
I gave him a week to settle in before changing anything but it was veryclear the the food he was eating wasn't the right food. Most EPI dogs need a grain-free food. I searched on the web and found the Nutrix website, their Duck and Potato food sounded perfect so I ordered some up. The results were instant. When changing to a grain-free food EPI dogs can go 'cold turkey', so we went from runny cow-pat poos one day to formed poos the next day. I was delighted, I knew I had the right food for Wallace, now I needed to tweak the other factors and soon I would see him thrive.
Wallace has now been eating the Nutrix Duck and Potato food for a month, he is putting on weight and his coat is beginning to shine. He's such a loving little boy that we have decided to keep him. Wallace now has his forever
home with myself and my family.
Thanks to Maria at Nutrix for producing this very important grain-free food. I have recommended it to other owners with EPI dogs, and they too are thriving on it.

My GSD Kara was diagnosed with EPI Endocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency in September 2009. We started her on Lypex enzymes antibiotics and vitamin B12 injections but has always had cow pat motions which are consistant with EPI which is not stable. Kara had been given various prescription foods which did nothing for her and this cost a fortune. Then I was recommended Nutrix by another EPI dog owner and within a week her motions had gone from cow pats to almost normal and I have some pictures to show you the difference. Her coat is now fabulous as is my cat's who is also on Nuitrix cat food. Kara has put on weight on your food and now weight 30.6 kilos. Thank you!! We really thought we would lose her before we found you and I mean that.
I would recommend this food to anyone who has the misfortune to have this horrible illness, but it makes it easier when the food is priced reasonably too! The whole range of dog and cat food are also to be recommended if they are as good as the ones I have tried and Maria is brilliant to deal with.
Jean Smith and Kara, Oh, and Tich the cat.
