Pancreatitis diet dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis diet dogs


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 This is an acceptable route to take, unless he starts to show bad signs - then off you go! He is correct, it will reoccur more frequently in dogs with previous pancreatitis. Good luck.
82861 tn?1333457511 My own Public Service Announcement to anyone else reading this post - giving your dog "people food" and a diet with too much fat just might result in pancreatitis and kill your dog. I thought I was being generous allowing my dog to have a couple of half-gnawed pork ribs. Yeah, "generous" - I killed my dog. <stepping off soap box!
Avatar n tn The two most likely conditions to cause such a profound elevation are an obstruction of the bile flow from the liver (as with a gall bladder stone, pancreatitis, or tumor) or from a high level of systemic steroids (glucocorticoids), either from overdosing this medication or from a hormonal disorder called Cushing’s Disease. This finding is significant and should be pursued right away.
793908 tn?1294708709 Some people do give dogs garlic, and the dogs seem to be ok, but I always think it's best to avoid it. As I said, dogs' sense of taste and smell is something like a hundred times more powerful than ours, so they get the taste of their food very well, and don't need any added seasonings. If she's eating the Hills I/D (that's the prescription diet the vet recommended after her pancreatitis attack?) without any problems, then that's good. Stick to it.
1300834 tn?1273126954 Certainly you'll need nutrient supplements if you need to resort to a homemade diet. You may have to do quite a bit of experimentation with diet before you land on an effective solution. Chronic pancreatitis can be managed with strict attention to low fat intake, but it's always possible for an acute attack to rear its ugly head with no warning. That's simply the nature of a twitchy pancreas.
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.....
254215 tn?1195096984 We waited for over 3 weeks when our dog had panc, and finally had to euthanize him because he was just not getting any better. Chronic pancreatitis can be managed to a certain extent with diet. My aunt had a mini schnauzer (the breed is notorious for chronic panc) who lived to be 19 - most of those years with chronic pancreatitis, and occasional hospital stays for acute attacks. I doubt the paw-dragging is in any way related to the pancreatitis.
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.
10821430 tn?1439584483 after reading he sounds like he had a accute inflammation of the pancreatitis..he is taking 1-50mg.Metronidazole per day/ 1-Prednisolone 5mg.twice a day also on 1.25 mg`1/8 tablet twice a day of Vetmedin for enlarged heart. He weighs 3.2 pounds..his 2 -1/2 sisters are 8 and 9 his brother from the same litter is also 10 years..nine have symptoms of PLE although his mom did have Pancreatitis when she was around 4 years old,has not had since...diagnosis was by this same veterinarian.
Avatar n tn A lot. Saturday morning I called the vet and they wanted to see her right away for fear of pancreatitis. They drew some blood, gave her some IV antibiotics, and some fluids, though she was not dehydrated. They also gave me some prescription pills to give her at home along with some prescription dog food that we are to feed her a teaspoonfull at a time, a couple times per day.
Avatar f tn Probiotics are quite useful to promote proper and normal absorption of dietary nutrients once they are digested. When dogs have had issues of upset stomachs, such as occurs with Pancreatitis for example, suffered episodes of vomiting and/or diarrhea or have been on antibiotics, the normal bacterial flora, which are the bacteria that normally line the intestinal tract, and are responsible to absorb digested nutrients, become "upset.
Avatar n tn About a month ago, we put him on a short course of steroids after he was seeming painful. He developed pancreatitis and had a trip to the animal hospital for 2 nights. With his heart murmur they had to delicately balance fluids. He got pain meds, anti-nausea and fluids and was put on a low fat diet. He eats several small meals a day.
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.
793908 tn?1294708709 I think the problem with turkey may also be related to the dark meat which is fatty. I have had friends whose dogs have snatched "the turkey" and subsequently developed pancreatitis and died. What is so confusing to us as consumers is that some canned dog foods are turkey. I still think the dark meat is a big concern because of the fat content. Just my opinion!
82861 tn?1333457511 As I learned from bitter experience years ago, after these events a parade of dogs end up at their vet clinics with pancreatitis. The sudden influx of fatty foods is a bad deal for our dogs, and can prove fatal. Please restrain yourself and your guests from feeding your dogs bones and meat not normally in their diet. It really can kill. OK, end of public service lecture. Have a great day! WOOF!

129961 tn?1189759434 Dogs can have just about any veggie. they love spinach, cooked carrots, and green beans. Some dogs like bananas. Dogs also love Pumpkin. However, never give a dog grapes or raisens as they are poisonous to dogs.
Avatar f tn Because puppies taste everything and discover that feces are edible and, perhaps, tasty, especially when fed a high fat content diet. 8. Because dogs are, by nature, scavengers, and this is within the range of scavenger behavior[citation needed]. 9. To prevent the scent from attracting predators, especially mother dogs eating their offspring's feces[citation needed]. 10.
793908 tn?1294708709 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. Since she has been on this diet, she has had no more bouts. And to top it off, she eats it as if it were candy! I recommend it and will tell wntone that if you dog has pancreatitus go for it. It works. If you would like more information, here is the the address and phone.. EXCELL K9 Diet. 12716 Kennedy Flat Road Jackson, Ca.
Avatar f tn My baby Sasha wasn’t acting her normal self since Christmas Eve. I noticed when i came home her bowl was still full like she hadn’t ate anything . She’s been moping around looking sad, not eating , throwing up & barely drinking water so she’s very dehydrated now. So on Tuesday i take her to the vet & she was diagnosed with pancreatitis. I spent $600 where she is hospitalized on 11/29-11/30 today under IV fluids, pain medications, meds to control her vomiting. But she’s still not eating..
82861 tn?1333457511 If you have one dog, multiple dogs, small dogs or large dogs, or are just thinking about bringing a dog into your life, this forum is the place for you. There is no such thing as a stupid question here, and there are many experienced and knowledgeable members ready to help and discuss doggy business of all kinds. All posts are welcome whether they are about veterinary care, diet, behavior, grief and loss, or a simple sharing of fun experiences with your dogs.
Avatar f tn Of course, if she has problems with regular food, we can just keep her on the special diet... or I might put both dogs back on their Nutro, which they ate that for years, it does wonders for their coats, but we finally switched to Iams because of cost and availability. The good thing about returning to regular food is, for a while there we couldn't give her any human treats, and that was hard for us to ignore "snack time." But we'll see.
1916673 tn?1420236870 I have now added a useful Vegetable Nutrition Data file to my own website which should help owners work out which are the best vegetables to add to a home cooked diet regime for their kd dogs. You can access this document under the Blog section of my website at This is a PDF file, so you can also download it or print it to read or reference at your convenience.
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 I give my dogs fruits and vegies..I also give them lean chicken breast and fish for snacks,I put them in the dehydrator.I make homemade dog bisciuts too.....I dont eat garbage and I dont want then to either.....My dogs eat Eagle Pack Holistic Select dog food and do fantastic on it...... It's pretty obvious that I dont have kids......
1916673 tn?1420236870 If overweight, then gaining weight is not a good thing, as it will adversely affect the pancreatitis. It's curious that he's got pancreatitis if he's been on a low-fat diet for 3yrs. The blood result that points directly to it is the amylase, which has been consistently high on both blood results. I would raise this with your vet and please let me know what he suggests (cause, diagnosis and treatment/management advice).
Avatar f tn Weekly organic oatmeal baths, distilled drinking water, a natural dog vitamin supplement to boost internal immunity and a product like chlorpheniramine maleate tablets to help stop itching work well to relieve and resolve this for many dogs similar to yours. Diet is a big issue and low carbohydrate home made diets can be wonderful for this. Properly made they will help to resolve this and will not upset your dogs pancreas.
