Exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) isn't the same as pancreatitis. Dogs with this condition aren't able to produce the pancreatic enzymes they need to digest food properly. It's most commonly seen in German Shepherds but any dog can be affected.
If your dog has EPI, they have difficulty digesting and absorbing many nutrients, particularly fats. This means their poop will often contain a lot of fat, and they might become very skinny.
While there's no cure for this illness, it's very manageable with daily pancreatic supplements. Your dog ideally needs a low-fat diet to put as little strain on the pancreas as possible, so our chicken and turkey recipes should be a great fit for them.
