Default Epi?

Hi Everyone

My husband and I have just last week taken on a foster dog. She is a short coat GSD and the is severely emaciated. She weighs 21kgs. We took her to the rescue places vet last night and the vet has sent blood work off to test her for EPI - exocrine pancreas insufficiency. Has anyone dealt with this before? I really need some help as we have fallen in love with this girl and want to do the best for her. We should have blood results back over the weekend or early next week. He has begun treatment for her for EPI which is some tablets that we sprinkle on her food and also given a general antibiotic course for her.
