    Baby is dx'd with chronic pancreatitis. Her spec fPL was 6.5. She doesn't exhibit any outward signs of pancreatitis, but should I be giving her Pancreas Booster or any other supplements or medications? She takes nothing right now, besides the Lantus.

    When the vet checked our flp levels she did a whole panel which I clicked b12 levels and something else. Flp was elevated as expected but the vitamin levels were normal indicating he did not need enzymes. You can ask your vet about those tests in order to determine whether or not she would benefit from them.

    B12 and folate? Those are good tests to get to see if she needs supplementation.

    Yeah, that! Lol. In humans, those vitamins don’t depend on pancreatic function so I forgot :D
