Default Pancreatitis :(

So poor roxie is being hospitalized for severe pancreatitis and Im really concerned that the TOTW food is the issue. She had Pancreatitis at 1 year old and I was feeding TOTW then. Now almost three years old I decided bc of allergies to try TOTW again. Well a month later on the TOTW she gets off the charts bloodwork showing pancreas. I had her bloodwork done 3 months ago and it was normal. So the foods all I can think of being the cause. Now I have the issue of deciding what food to buy for her?
Thanks

Poor baby girl. Baylee has it and gets a flare up from time to time still. As a matter o fact she threw up several times and pooped in the house today while I was at work. She has never done that!! So I am thinking she is having a flaer up. We use BB Wilderness, Innova red meat (which I think may be too rich for her) and Wellness Core. Good luck.

My vet did recommend Wellness core or EVO weight management. Its lower fat but im concerned about her not gaining weight or being to skinny on a weight management diet.

I would home cook for her if its at all possible for you. I cooked for Gouda and its really not that hard.

Here are some sample diets for canine pancreatitis

BTW if you are looking to stick with kibble there are some fairly good kibbles out there and they dont have to be a prescription diet type stuff(Im not fond of those myself) that are low in fat.

California Natural makes a Low Fat Rice and Lamb Meal and Low Fat Rice and Chicken Meal kibble. They both contain 7% fat which is quite low.

TOTW is more then twice that in fat

Thanks for all the help I will look more into cooking. My only concern is when I go on Vacation for a while it may be hard to cook for her lol. But we will try! She is doing good got to bring her home last night she was a very tired girl!

Hello I am brand new to this Forum I am the proud papa of two Boxers, Jazzy 5yrs old male fawn color with white boots, and Laila 3.5yr old little female dark marble brindle.
Laila was having gastric issues and after a stay at the Animal Hospital the diagnosis was Pancreatitis, based on the blood work they did. She was not holding her food down, and was not eating much and suffered from what we thought was acute constipation as she had not gone and was in severe abdominal pain. After a 3 day stay we took her home and once home she did feel comfortable and did go number 2.
We talked to some friends who recommended a new Vet.
The new Vet seems very good he prescribed, Metronidazole, 500mg pills and "Hills" brand Prescription Diet, i/d Canine Gastrointestinal Health, canned food and kibble. After being on it she immediately, returned to normal, now one month later she is having a relapse. One thing I did observe is that when I re-supplied, I ordered the larger bag of the i/d kibble and it was different, it was slightly larger in diameter, then the first bag of kibble we were given and Laila did not like the larger kibble, clearly she likes the smaller one, well soon after she fell back into her vomiting bouts, and lack of appetite, I took her to the Vet on Wednesday to get more pills and to have him see her. She is not eating much, and continues to vomit bile. I hear that some of you are recommending home cooking, I will appreciate any and all feedback on your experience with this type of issue, I am very concerned about my Laila and could use your experience and help in this matter. I thank anyone in advance for the support and feedback, "Thank you"

The only thing that helped my boy with Colitis was Raw. Please check out our Raw feeding section for information.

I sure hope your girl is feeling better soon. I would fast her for 24 hrs and only offer her low sodium chicken broth, no water. You need to calm her pancreas down.
