Pancreatitis in puppies

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis in puppies


Avatar f tn My puppy has been in and out of the vets office more times than I care to count since we got her in May. This little Chessie is just miserable. She will be great for a few days and then within a matter of a few hours she can be in pain and so sick. I am able to do IVs at home if I need to, but my question is what do you get them to eat? Pumpkin she loves...yogurt at times. She was eating ground turkey with rice and cottage cheese....but now she won't even look at the turkey...
Avatar n tn My MD was at a total loss as to what caused my original pain which returned as soon as my pancreatitis pain resolved. I was lucky in that the pancreatitis that was due to the ERCP resolved quickly. Still and all I was out of work for 3 weeks. Tracie, I hope you are feeling better. When did you first realize that something was wrong? You went home after your ERCP, right? Did you end up admitted through the ER?
15290316 tn?1447026708 To make a very long story short, I didn't feel comfortable to really post until I walked away 100% from the meds prescribed to me in pain management. I've always been one to explore other people's thoughts and feelings. I'm probably just nosey. Lol, but another post on here really got me thinking about addiction, dependence and pain management. I have strong feelings about pain meds after ten years of being prescribed them! But I was wondering how everyone else felt.
Avatar f tn Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
Avatar n tn I am so sorry to hear this. I hope your dog is alright in the end. I think that if you have hope everything will turn out fine, but I would consult a vet as soon as possible, and watch her carefully, don't let her out of your site, because you never know what could happen. Hope everything turns out well...
Avatar f tn He would appear to be fine and then suddenly he would leap up from sleeping or simply relaxing, yelping in terrible pain. Upon examination by the vet he was found to have pancreatitis, which is a very painful, potentially life-threatening condition. A trip to the vet is most definitely in order. Anything that is painful enough to make them yelp needs to be assessed medically. Please let us know how he is.
Avatar m tn For a couple of days he stayed in the hospital. the pancreatitis was healing but now he was diagnosed with pneumonia. More meds. And he was sent home. Now still with a fever, leaking diarrhea, and not eating. Again, he passed out and was rushed to the hospital. This time, they are saying its a brain tumor. It's just all so odd. This was a once healthy dog who ate better than us. He had a great diet, awesome energy, and thought he was a puppy. One episode of pancreatitis leads to this?!
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 Senior dogs may have joint pain or the pain may be abdominal such as in dogs suffering from pancreatitis after eating a fatty meal. A female dog may pant after hours and even days after giving birth to her puppies. This occurs because the uterus tends to contract for a few weeks after giving birth. Such contractions are stimulated by lactation.
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 f tn the male threw up and pooped all night the female did not and died this morning when i got up now the male puppy isnt drinking or wanting to move and is starting to get stiff in the mouth and thick spit i almost can't get water in please help what can i do....
Avatar f tn This is highly improbable because the behavior has also been observed in environments where caretakers never picked up the dog's (or other's) feces. 7. 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.
931217 tn?1283484935 The true incidence of pancreatitis is unknown, and although autopsy surveys have found evidence of inflammation in anywhere from less than 1% to more than 50% of dog pancreases, no study has yet examined how common clinical pancreatitis is.[139-141] In dogs, there is some evidence that neutered animals may be at higher risk than intact animals for sudden-onset form.[142,143] Obesity is a common and growing clinical problem in dogs and cats.
203342 tn?1328740807 It is for tummy issues. Like pancreatitis or IBS. Cats can have that too. It comes in wet and in dry. It helped my kitty quite a bit after he had pancreatitis so bad he almost died and had to be in the ER for a weekend. Hope something works for you and your kitty!!
Avatar f tn What finally brought her out of it was her daughter having puppies and she got in the box and helped nurse the puppies. Never having heard about false pregnancy in dogs (I had one myself) I really thought she was pregnant with a lot of puppies but it just went on too long. A dog of mine now has a swollen belly and I'd swear she's pregnant but she's spayed. That's what I'm researching now. No pain, no difference in behavior, eating fine.
769362 tn?1360792124 My husband was on saboxone and when we decided we had had enough, I took the saboxone in lower than normal doses to curb the morphine withdrwal, but only for a few days.... I'm taking all the vitamins I can stand and I'm sleeping ok. The problem is that I'm more addicted to control of a situation than anything else and my life has fallen apart. My house is upside down and there's so much laundry that I can't see the floor.
675347 tn?1365464245 Is your bin in a place the dog cannot get at it? FOODS THAT ARE TOXIC Christmas pudding Mince pies Grapes Raisins Christmas cake Stollen (and any fruit cake as it will contain raisins/sultanas etc.) Turkey or meat fat/skin/crackling from pork etc. Turkey skin can also be too fatty and can cause acute pancreatitis. Avocadoes Macadamia nuts.
Avatar n tn I don’t recommend the traditional beef and rice. Beef is high in fat, which can exacerbate GI inflammation and pancreatitis. Rice is a complex carb which can be fermented in the GI tract, causing gas, which can lead to additional digestive upset. I recommend a grain-free, bland diet because in my experience it’s more suitable to pets with active symptoms of IBD.
2215501 tn?1339495927 Hi, I see that you give a lot of advice for people dealing with kidney failure in dogs. My 10 year old, Prince was diagnosed with kidney failure in February, the latest in a list of other medical problems. I have found some tips through these forums that have helped keep him stable since and was wondering about Pedialyte. Do you know if it would be beneficial? Thanks! Prince suffers from Pancreatitis, Cushing's Disease and SARDS (Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration).
12980073 tn?1429819661 I am not sure if that had anything to do with any of this, but I have had no experience with worms, puppy vaginitis, Lepto, or kidney issues in puppies, so maybe there is a correlation? Thank you and I am hopeful for her recovery and happy to be part of such a supportive and informative community!
Avatar n tn The law doesn't care about us addicts. In fact, it despises us. It will put you in a place more brutal and horrible than anything you can imagine in a thousand nightmares. (am I emphatic enough yet?
2152087 tn?1336526990 she doesn't seem to have any interest in drinking water so every 20 minutes I squeeze about 4 TBSP of water down her with a sirygne. I am so scared. There is no other vet to take her to. I live in the mountians in Montana.
903476 tn?1242240637 one more thing.... If there are no blankets in the room that I am sitting in, my Chihuahua will whine until I get him one...! Boy, has he got me trained!
Avatar f tn I have been a nurse for 14 years, 5 of those was in pain management and I have witnessed first hand so many patients come in for pain management treatment that say they wish the never would have done it. Multiple people that now can not get around without the use of a Cain, both young and middle aged. I just can't do it, not right now anyway and I feel that I am in a catch 22. I do " okay " not taking pain meds, however I just can't get out and do the things I enjoy doing.
82861 tn?1333457511 Med Help also has a licensed veterinarian on the “Ask a Vet” forum. Dr. Cheng graciously volunteers her time so participation on that board is free. In addition to practicing western veterinary medicine, Dr. Cheng also practices holistic, traditional Chinese medicine. She has a wealth of knowledge regarding herbal and alternative treatments. If you have an unusual or complicated medical issue, Dr. Cheng is a great resource for you.
Avatar m tn Between the 2 of them, I think they have had every possible yorkie weakness possible including Pancreatitis which Tasha had in the summer. I have been in touch with their breeder. She ``says`` that their mum died when she fell of the couch while sleeping and broke her neck, and their dad died of pneumonia. Both were very healthy. I find that really hard to believe. But, when I bought the dogs, I went to her house and all of her dogs and their puppies lived in the house with them.
6839387 tn?1385681693 The vet reminded me about giving Tasha anything fatty as she had Pancreatitis in the summer. We do not want that to happen again. That will be the end. I am doing my best to keep her comfortable. Running all suggestions I read here past my vet. I know you and all of the others are doing all you can too. Not much else we can do. It is so sad. Jane and Tasha.
Avatar f tn On Monday of last week she had bloody diarrhea and my vet tested her for pancreatitis, which came back positive. She didn't seem to be in any pain and was back to herself the next day. She was on Digoxin, Flagyl, Pro-Pectin, Torbutrol and Enalapril in the days prior to her death. I had decreased the Digoxin when they tested her levels. I brought her to a crematory on Sat and had her cremated. She was only 4lbs and always very tiny w a sensitive system.
Avatar m tn Recovered from that only to have to stay in kitty ER for a weekend due to pancreatitis in November. During that episode they also diagnosed him with kidney problems. And then I had to rush our older girl in one morning cause she was pawing and gagging at her mouth. Thankfully it was just a loose tooth and that's when we asked the vet about her lump and then we did that this month. Needless to say I have been a basket case!!
