About Piper

Piper is a long haired German shepherd dog who was born on September 24, 2004. She was brought home by my family on April 5, 2005. On June 12, 2009 she was diagnosed with Enzyme Pancreatic Insufficiency or E.P.I. Simply put her pancreas is no longer secreting the enzymes that are required for her to properly digest her food so she has been slowly starving to death. Now that she has been diagnosed she can begin treatment and live a full and active life.

While writing my last post I came across some photos that I had taken over the last few months and thought it would be interesting to compare them side by side.

YIKES! That is a skinny dog!

Wow! She has filled out.

A Fat E.P.I. Dog

After comparing these photos side by side I am shocked that she was ever that emaciated and amazed at the transformation she has made.
