Q. My g.shphrd has just been diagnosed with e.p.i.. Trying to find the prescription enzyme was grueling. Any non script enzymes available?

A. There are a few different ones available but all with a prescription such as lypex and pancreatic enzyme powder. Unfortunately it is an expensive condition to treat for.
