Pancreatitis canine

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis canine


Avatar n tn We have wonderful success with the canine Pancreatitis patients in our veterinary clinic using a few natural therapies with a home made natural diet. Take the burden off your dogs pancreas with full spectrum digestive enzymes. Re-balance your dogs digestive system with probiotics. Consider a bland home made diet such as chicken, rice and peas. If you would like to follow up on this in detail with me, that would be fine.

Avatar f tn My 9 month old puppy was diagnosed with pancreatitis today, they kept him at the vet all day giving him IV fluids. They let us take him home tonight so he was only admitted for about 12 hours.
Avatar m tn Yes, like you I found out the hard way. My vet told us that every time a summer holiday rolls around that involves picnicking, BBQing etc., he can count on having several pancreatitis patients at his door. It's such a serious and sometimes fatal condition, and most people have never heard of it.
793908 tn?1294708709 This is a report on PANCREATITIS for those who need to know about it. Julie took a turn for the worst..out of nowhere. Yesterday/last night & this morning, I thought we'd lose her, but for now, she is better. She started vomiting 3x in the afternoon. She was visably sick. (of course this happens on the holiday weekend) I called her Vet at 6 pm & he was on his way to the Jersey Shore.
793908 tn?1294708709 My 10 yr old mini Poodle Julie was now diagnosed with a heart murmur when she went to ER Vet again.. for another Pancreatitis attack..which is better now. My Vet told me that the Trilostane (22.5 mg) is NOT working for her Cushings disease. Yet, 2 months ago her numbers came way down to normal. He now wants her on LYSODREN. I am scared to death of that drug. I read too much negative reports about it. Thats why I put her on Trilostane.
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 I agree 100% with Ginger, it sounds like an attack of pancreatitis to me. The normal treatment for pancreatitis is one week of hospitalization on NOTHING but IV fluids, not even water to drink, to give the pancreas TOTAL REST. After the week is up, they start slowly introducing very bland food. 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.
Avatar f tn We found this was a big no with him developing Pancreatitis and he also became jaundice and liver counts in the 1000s on blood work. He had an ultrasound to make sure he did not have any blockage, it was negative. He was sick and would not eat which is not normal for him. He eventually started eating and we were able to feed him with vet approval boiled ground turkey and rice. He is now on Royal Canin HE GI food - 1 - 2 cups a day and last blood test about 6 weeks ago was normal.
1485641 tn?1287977898 Our theory is that it could be pesticide poisoning from our neighborhood lawn maintenance. When we researched canine poisoning types and symptoms, arsenic poisoning seems to match his symptoms. If anyone has experienced pesticide poisoning or may know what else could be causing his episodes please let us know. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn 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 Fish body oil, such as salmon oil (not cod liver oil), and antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, beta carotene, and selenium, may help reduce the risk of acute pancreatitis. Dogs with chronic pancreatitis can be deficient in B vitamins, so a B-complex supplement is also recommended. -------- Hoping that helps a little. I'll be back with more later.
1644524 tn?1301005892 But stop. Right now. Pedigree is basically canine junk food, and hotdogs are much too laden with salt and fat to be the right thing to eat (much as he wants these things!) Drinking milk is better than drinking nothing I guess. But dogs are lactose-intolerant, by their very natures! Milk is not a good idea, even if it does contain Vitamin D.
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 Dogs, like humans, need a certain amount of fat for good nutrition, but sudden spikes in fat can bring on an acute case of pancreatitis - particularly in a dog who has already had it. Chronic pancreatitis is darned difficult to manage in humans as well as dogs. Please post back and let us know what your vet has to say about the urine sample and your dog's general condition.
Avatar m tn I hope that whatever is ailing your dog, is easily fixed. I have to say, it does sound like it could be pancreatitis. I think you made a good choice to have her treated for it. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Please let us know how things go with her.
Avatar f tn Most of what peekawho had listed is correct. Fatty foods should not be given in excess because they can cause pancreatitis. Onions cause Heinz body anemia, Yeast dough can expand in the stomach and cause a kind of bloat. Xylitol, Macadamia Nuts, Coffee, Chocolate, Raisins grapes can be deadly. Salt, garlic and alcohol are only bad in excess.
Avatar f tn I have stopped putting cereal in her food (mixer) I use a good quality tinned food based on tripe and mix in Hills id. I have found supply of canine nettle which I have heard would be good to add can you advise?
Avatar m tn My 13 yr old Cardigan Corgi died 08/20/17 after a bout with pancreatitis, kidney failure and a enlarged prostate. About 2.5 weeks in total start to finish. Vet said he had small kidneys from xrays. Prostate was restricting urine a little. I noticed little changes before he was sick lost a little weight slow down a little . But he could go all day no excessive urination or frequent peeing or accidents.
793908 tn?1294708709 I POSTED THIS IN THE FORUM TOO... Hi all..I have not been in here in awhile. Life has been hard for Julie (my 10 yr old mini poodle). As some of you know, she is on Trilostane. It WAS working great till she had many Pancreatitis attacks..every month for 6 mos..& she had to go off & on Trilostane alot & that threw her body way off. Reluctantly, my Vet upped her to 34 mg. & said she can not go any higher for her weight..13.5 lbs.. I read differently...
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.
931217 tn?1283484935 [13,17] There is no apparent protective effect of having a litter for dogs or cats. [17,20] About half of canine mammary tumors are malignant, whereas 85-90% of feline mammary tumors are malignant.[17,18] Mammary cancer is usually treated with surgery and often chemotherapy, and it is often fatal despite treatment, with 59% of dogs with malignant tumors in one study eventually dying of causes related to their. [21] Spaying dramatically reduces the risk of mammary cancer in both dogs and cats.
82861 tn?1333457511 -D While it's a funny story (and true!) King was darned lucky he didn't develop pancreatitis from his gluttony. Pancreatitis can be fatal. Enjoy the feast but make sure your dogs can't help themselves. Also make sure any guests are aware that they shouldn't give any treats to your canine family members. Sometimes worse things can happen than a bout of vomiting or diarrhea. Keep your holidays healthy and happy!
Avatar f tn She spent 2 nights in the ER hospital. She had pancreatitis. This infection settled in her kidneys causing off the chart high kidney values. She had to go on an IV drip but because of her mitral valve heart condition, she could not receive fluids too quickly. Flushed her kidneys and praise the Lord! Her values have stayed normal since returning home! Downside, the cough is back...She is on Sucrafate, Pepcid AC, Batril, Amoxil, Pimobenden, Anopril, mirtaximide and lasix.
Avatar f tn Just started looking online this past week about canine kidney failure after I was told my dog, a 4 year old american eskimo had the disease. I would like to get some information to help him lower his numbers and also be as happy and healthy as he can be for the time he has, which of course I hope is toward the longer time estimates that I have read. He had no symptoms of this prior to his recent routine check-up. I hoped he had some other problem like Addisons or Lepto which could be treated.
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 n tn I have the greatest dog-ter (daughter of the canine persuasion). She is an Old English Mastiff that I rescued from the pound in August of 2000 when she was about 18 to 24 months old, so she's approximately 10 1/2 or 11 years old now. She was prolapsed when I got her, but had no other health issues until November of 2007, when she was diagnosed with Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia.
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 Hi All, I had a diabetic baby (he's passed on now), but I had found a great canine diabetic/cushing's site when he was diagnosed. I can't remember what forum it was , I'll check to see if I still have it listed in my favorites, and if it's even still around, and I'll post that. Anyway, there is a great book that I found out about from that site on all these diseases, Diabetes/Cushing's/Pancreatitis/Thyroid as they are all related and when you have one chances are greater to have another.
