Answered By

A. Two blood tests commonly used are cTLI and B12/Folate levels. Abnormal values may diagnose EPI. IN the States, these tests are performed at the GI Lab at Texas A&M University. Discuss these tests with your vet or a specialist. Enzyme additives for foods and diet are used to manage EPI. Discuss options with your vet. Use caution if ordering enzyme powders online. Always check with your veterinarian before starting any medications or supplements.
