Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis diet canine

pancreatitis

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.
1832268 tn?1326819610 4 He was hospitalized for three days, flushed out all the toxins, and had IV’s. Since then he has been on the RS recovery kidney diet, and now is on the KD diet and drinks plenty of water. He has gained weight and is pretty active. Just had blood work done and his BUN is 23 and Creatine is 1.1 The vet said all is normal. He will continue to be on the KD Diet. My vet said she has never in all her years seen a dog especially a senior dog bounce back.
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 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! I know that she is getting very bored with this food day in and day out but.....
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.
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.
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 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 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 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 But the recipe must be given by a vet and made for a specifically for a patient. Many cancer diet recipes, and allergic diet recipes are better than any commercial diet out there. Commercial diets are improving though. Soon I will a post a list of best commercial foods. Please watch for it!
Avatar f tn Assuming it IS CKD, then it is at a very early stage and a restricted low-protein diet is certainly not necessary. Lowing phosphorus in the diet cannot do any harm, so this is worth pursuing - but do we know whether phosphorus is abnormally high in the blood? What do the blood results say? It is certainly not worth starting a binder at this early stage just yet. Frankly, any vet that advises a DRY DOG FOOD for dogs that have or may have kidney disease is very bad.
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 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 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 He was 14 pounds when we adopted him and has always fluctuated between 14 and 16 pounds no matter how many different diet dog foods we've tried. We used to be able to walk him but this last year he's really gone down hill and can't make it around the block. I wind up having to carry him. We suspected 2 years ago that he had the Cushings Disease but he was doing so well we thought the vet might have been mistaken.
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 Daily SubQs are worthwhile and help maintain the improvements already gained from IV fluids. In terms of diet, it is absolutely essential to keep to a low phosphorous and low sodium diet. As the kidneys cannot easily process protein, it is also important to offer ONLY high-quality (human grade) meat and poultry - and to give approximately 20% protein in every meal. More will cause stress on the kidneys, and less will cause malnutrition.
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 ...
19691093 tn?1488197669 13.4 Our vet has prescribed Royal Canin Renal Support F diet, and we give him the dry kibble. He completes his portion in about 3 or 4 times during the day. It's only been a week, but he likes this dog food. Often, we'll add a small apple which we chew up and share with him. 3 days ago our vet prescribed Levothyroxine to help his low thyroid, hypothyroid. The initial dose appears to be too strong (.1 mg per day) and he became very aggressive and wild, like on caffeine, and trembling started.
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 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 did read that certain breeds are more prone to this and I also read somewhere that it can be due to some sort of nutritional value missing from their diet. I am going to try the stuff they sell at Pet's Mart to see if this works. I do know that the only way i have found to keep my dog from doing this is to watch her at all times when she is outside and make sure she turns away as soon as she has done her business and reward her for that. May I ask what breed of dog you have and how old?
Avatar f tn I went brought him home.He has not ate anything she gave me a can of Prescription Diet food I/D Canine Gastrointestional Health.Siad he ate and like this ..he want even smell of it .He love's boiled chicken he would even taste it.I have paid out $500 in two day's.He's still no better want eat a bite of anything or drink.Vet said may have to bring him in for xray's another $300 plus whatever...Vet's gone for long Memorial weekend don't know what to do.Any advice would be appreciated.
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?
Avatar n tn A short-term regimen (a week or so) is usually tolerated fairly well, but longer than that puts you in a position where your dog is flirting with developing diabetes mellitus, Cushing's Disease, pancreatitis, or several other problems. By doing bloodwork at least twice during the two months he's being treated you can keep track of how his system is tolerating the steroids. Weaning him off at the earliest sign of problems would be possible if you're keeping track of how he's responding.
Avatar f tn This has naturally persisted, along with classical symptoms of increased water intake. To address his pancreatitis, he was placed on a low fat prescription GI diet (Royal Canin), which I have maintained, but I supplement with canned food (fat < 5%, protein 5-10%) and home cooked food (chicken/sweet potato/pumpkin/green beans/mixed vegetables/rice/flaxseed meal).
