My baby has Pancreatitis what can I do
My 7yr old baby has Pancreatitis and she is under care of her Vet. Her Vet is very good but me like a parent wants result quickly. Has any of you had a dog with pancreatitis. Please let me know how long did it take for them to get back to normal. Also if you all know of any recipes for that please let me know. thanks

You can do a search for Pancreatitis..as many members dogs have had it
You might ask the mod (hit the triangle under your avatar) to move this to health threads.

My older dog, Tahoe, was diagnosed with pancreatitis a long time ago. I simply put him on Dr. Hill's ID food and occassionally I would find a "easily digestible" dog food at Petsmart. I think it was Science Diet. This worked for him for several years. Just be cautious of the "crude fat" content in dog treats. Try to keep it down.
Anyway, I had him on that prescribed food for 4 years and then he began vomiting alot and was very lethargic. My new vet put him on IVD (Venison or Duck), suggesting that he had formed an allergy to chicken/beef and suddenly, at 15, he had the energy of a 10 year old. Worked for him! Not sure if it's related to the pancreatitis diagnosis or something altogether different.

There are (Sadly) TONS Of dogs on here with pancreatitis. your dog needs to be on a VERY low fat diet. Sometimes this is with a prescription diet, or a low fat kibble. If you are planning on home cooking you need to consult a dog nutritionist to make sure the diet is balanced. You cannot home cook on your own- your dog's health will suffer.
