One of my babies has been diagnosed with a GI disease. They dont know for sure but the enzymes that are elevated in her bloodwork are the ones that would lead the vet to believe it could be pancreatitis or IBD, or a # of other GI dieases. So that being said, we KNOW there is something wrong, but we cant be sure what. So our first plan of action is to change her food to low fat, pronto. I am VERY hesitant to put her on the prescription foods, so does anyone have any good suggestions for lowfat foods? She is currently on Merrick, but i guess its too rich. I may post this in health/diet as well.
