Canine pancreatitis diet food

Common Questions and Answers about Canine pancreatitis diet food


Avatar n tn I will be honest, the Vet bill was $1400 in just five days and I could not afford to go any further with hospitalization. The Vet felt that if the dog could eat, take her home and feed her Science Diet ID dog food, slowly building her intake level each day. On 11/14/07 another blood panel was ran, Lipase level dropped to 3258, glucose 66, Albumin 2.5. I can clearly see that there is high risk for the dog to get diabetes and other major disorders.
1832268 tn?1326819610 She will eat people food in small portions but not her diet dog food. I have spent @ $1,000.00 so far on her treatment and not sure how much more I can spend. I feel awful. I love her but I don't want her to suffer. I don't know what to do.
Avatar m tn Thank you so much for you raw food suggestion. I am not quite sure what that type of diet entails but I am willing to listen to all ideas and/or explainations for a diabetic do diet. Like I said earlier, her vet doesn't have any ideas other then the Low Residue rx foods because Sweety has a very sensitive stomach. Or the old stand by of boiled white meat only chicken and veggies such as broccoli or green beans, she hates green beans!
Avatar f tn The vet might be able to suggest a prescription-diet basic dry food for him, which would help him get all the nutrients he needs, and help him on his way back to full recovery and strength. You could gradually introduce this to the food you are giving him right now. Other people on this forum are sure to have had experience of feeding a dog with pancreatitis, or recovering from it, and will have some good suggestions. Good luck. So glad he is much better!
793908 tn?1294708709 My vet went thru a lot of my money and a ton of tests. he came up with a low fat diet from a can food called Royal Canon. She still had bouts. I decided to try and get away from this can food with I call "Canned Road Kill." I decided to try the RAW Diet that I heard so much about. I found a RAW Food company called Excel K9. The lady Renee said they have a special diet for dogs that have pancretitis. It is call Clyde's Diet. Let me tell you, it is the best decision I ever made.
Avatar f tn 7 year old small 50 pound Lab with seasonal allergies - had annual exam in May- switched food from Weight Managament Purina One to senior food with no soy, wheat or corn. After a month on new food, dog started chewing spots on legs after its normal seasonal allergy timeframe was over. His fur also turned course and began to fall out in large quantities although he did not develop bald spots. It appeared to be breaking.
Avatar f tn He had an abcess on his prostate and also pancreatitis. His blood work showed high BUN and creatinine so was also diagnosed with renal failure. After leaving the vet, the doctor put him on Royal Canin LP dry food for renal failure. He is also on Epakitin. It has been almost 2 months and we took him back to be neutered and have blood work done. His blood work showed that his BUN and creatnine had not increased anymore so the food must be doing his kidneys good.
Avatar f tn I have postponed futher blood tests until this condition absolutely requires it I would like to know if there are any other things I can do to help her like diet I am on a very low income but would wish to improve her diet and give her supplements that might ease the onset of her symptoms. I have stopped putting cereal in her food (mixer) I use a good quality tinned food based on tripe and mix in Hills id.
1529419 tn?1291873205 Yes acute canine pancreatitis is easily resolved with a home-made bland diet fed in very small portions 3-4 times a day. Digestive enzymes and probiotics should be added to your dogs meals twice a day and fluids given as needed to promote proper hydration. Should you want to follow up with me, that is fine.
Avatar m tn Any time a dog is fed human food there is the risk of them developing pancreatitis, and even one meal can be enough to cause it. Keep in mind that human food is much higher in fat than foods designed for dogs, and dogs cannot process those fats. Pancreatitis is EXTREMELY painful, and if that is what is causing her problems, that's why she is shaking.
Avatar n tn She was given antibiotics and pain meds. We were only able to get them down her with people food, (vienna sausages) Two days ago she started vomiting and had become very weak, we took her back in this morning almost comatose and found out that she has pancreatitis....They have her at the hospital for 24/48 hour iv, antibiotics and glucose in hopes she will recover....I don't have alot of money and the surgery two weeks ago was 500.00, this new bill I have no idea what it will be.
Avatar f tn 8 (worse than original). Her diet started out as Hills diet G/D (not K/D because of her pancreatitis). She has lost ~4.5 pounds since she was diagnosed. I have tried a homecooked diet specialized for kidney failure while also considering her pancreatitis. Still struggling to get her to eat. Does anyone have any pointers on how to handle this?
1485641 tn?1287977898 Small multiple daily meals with digestive enzymes added to each, a balanced pet vitamin mineral supplement and probiotics should be very helpful to prevent recurrences and avoid Pancreatitis and Diabetes. Be sure your dog's food and treats are not on the FDA Pet Food recall List and remember fresh vegetables and lots of love are very healthy pet treats.
Avatar f tn The safest diet for dogs is regular, commercially available dog food. I have 3 large breed dogs, and almost never give them any people food. They don't "need" it, and people food often helps contribute to canine obesity, if overdone.
Avatar f tn Since being on this routine, only approx 5 days, he is drinking heavily, urinating constantly and he eats very little, leaving most of the food in his bowl, hating the prescription diet food. How can I know this is the best solution? I want to get a second opinion and see if another Vet will conclude that the specific diet plan and medications are the way too go. I really want to give him high quality salmon and chicken as has been mentioned in this blog to help him eat more.

Avatar f tn They sent her home and put her on the royal canine renal food and subcutaneous fluids twice a week. She has since had normal stool with a small amount of blood followed by diarrhea with more blood. I have given her plain yogurt the past two days but may stop that now. The vet wants to put her back on her old food Natural Balance-I got the can instead of the kibble and wants me to give her famotidine for the diarrhea. She is still drinking some water and peeing.
Avatar m tn When a dog is diagnosed with pancreatitis it is usually blamed on a high-fat diet but a diet that is high in fat will not cause pancreatitis in a dog with a healthy pancreas. A high-fat diet will, however, aggravate an already-diseased pancreas to the point where an attack of pancreatitis is the result. Some dogs are genetically predisposed to pancreatic disease. Dogs with parathyroid conditions are predisposed, as are dogs who get too much calcium in their diets.
Avatar f tn Pancreatitis is made much worse with fat in the diet, so that's something worth assessing. If any food has moderate to high fat, change it for something more appropriate (low fat).
Avatar f tn However, I noted earlier in your post that your dog has suffered from pancreatitis - and excessive fat in the diet can induce bouts of pancreatitis, so it's something to keep an eye on. Eggs "can" also be a good addition to the diet of kd dogs ... BUT ... while egg white is rich in omega-3, the yolk is very high in phosphorous and omega-6. The best balancing rule to follow therefore is one egg yolk for every 3 egg whites. Eggs are also extremely high in good protein ...
Avatar n tn I was just thumbing thru it and it said that cushing's is usually found in obese dogs, 6yrs of age and up, BUT it can be found in younger dogs also. Also suggests that diet MIGHT have something to do w/ it (people food too) along with genetics. And it suggests other diets to use for these type pups.
Avatar n tn Hiya, My mini poodle had Pancreatitis..she woke up in the AM & than went back to sleep all day...she wouldn't eat food. She got up at 5 pm...kept drinking water & kept vomiting a bile like substance...not food...kept repeating it for hours. I thought it was a cold or virus. Than out of nowhere she had a seizure. My little baby was thrashing on her side & knew no-one for 5 min.. I just about had a heart attack myself. We rushed her to the ER Vet & they kept her for 4 days.
Avatar f tn I have given her follow up Pepcid AC at home and Cerenia tablet (pulverized in water and syringe) but she still will not eat. I syringe fed her 2 ml of baby food ham. I made her bacon and she won't touch it. I cannot get her to stop shivering (indication of pain). I don't know what to do. Going out now for Pedilyte and Ensure. Not sure if I should run her to the ER or wait it out until morning when the vet reopens. Any advice? Her blood work was all normal a month ago when it was done.
19691093 tn?1488197669 An inflamed pancreas can be very painful and is made worse by fatty dog foods - so reduce all fat in food as much as possible until the pancreatitis is resolved. Antiemetic medication is useful to prevent vomiting - particularly important with kidney disease dogs, as that can lead to further dehydration. It would be useful to get lipase checked in a new blood test. WBC is within normal range, but at the higher end. This would be indicative of an infection being resolved - or one starting up.
Avatar f tn Because the texture and temperature of fresh feces approximates that of regurgitated food, which is how canine mothers in the wild would provide solid food to their pups 11. Because of the protein content of the feces (particularly cat feces), or over-feeding, leading to large concentrations of undigested matter in the feces[citation needed]. 12. Due to assorted health problems, including: - Pancreatitis - Intestinal infections - Food allergies, leading to mal-absorption 13.
Avatar n tn Hello & welcome....I personally think this is diet related......Do you mind me asking what food & treats he was eating before/when this all started to happen? How long has he eaten it? Thanks, Karla P.S. I think the Pred dose is too high, also......5 mg 2@day would be plenty for a 20lb. dog! This would be the initial dose for just a few days, then dropped down to 5mg once a day then every other day & so on........
Avatar f tn It is extremely important you completely cut all fat from the diet, as the pancreatitis will otherwise worsen quickly. Has your vet given your dog intravenous fluid therapy? At the current time, this is the priority, if you are to have any chance at all in bringing the levels down. It may not be possible, but it's worth trying. Her breath smells because of toxins and possibly due to infection.
Avatar f tn I have read raw food or making your dogs meals is better then prescription diet. What is your opinion/experience? I also usually work five days a week, so it would be hard but I read 3-4 small meals a day is better? What is your opinion/experience with azodyl and epakitin? What would you recommend? I thought about starting Oscar on the canine kidney health program by five leaf pet botanicals. Has anyone had a good experience with that?
1945970 tn?1324215554 Hi. Recently, I was reading an online community about feeding cats and dogs raw meat. I guess I was just kind of wondering about what other people's opinions on this was. I myself, am not sure if it is good for them. But, I haven't done a lot of research about it (considering I'm not planning on changing my pets diets to "human" food). I just know that my dog, he loves to try to eats things that *I* don't think he should be eating.
Avatar f tn Serve food twice daily, and feed at approximately 2% to3% of the dog’s body weight daily in food. For example, a 100 pound dog would get two to three pounds of food (one cup is approximately 8 ounces, or  pound). A 50 pound dog would get one to one and a half pounds of food daily. A 25 pound dog would get eight to twelve ounces daily. A ten pound dog would get three to seven ounces daily. Dogs can vary on these amounts, depending on their metabolism and activity levels.
