Default Chronic pancreatitis

Does anyone have any experience with chronic pancreatitis? Tinkerbell has it, started about two years ago now. She eats a veterinary food 24/7 now, super low fat gastro stuff to help control it, but has flare ups now and then. She's at the vet right now - we had to rush her in this afternoon and she's having to stay the night to be on an IV, much worse than she's had so far before - and so I thought I'd check here to see if anyone had dealt with it before.

I don't know anything about it in dogs. I hope she recovers quickly.

I think there are a number of people on here who have some knowledge...I do not. Positive thoughts for Tinkerbell, we hope she is home soon!

Thank you. Vet opens in half an hour so I'm hoping to hear from them very soon with an update! I got the impression she will definitely be coming home today, but whether it's early in the morning or at the end of the day will depends on how well she responded to the IV treatment overnight.

I have an older dog who has had some digestive issues recently, though not pancreatitis. I found the prescription kibble hard on his system. If low fat is mostly what you need, I would look at raw goat. It is the lowest fat raw I have found. The best deal I found was at haretoday.com. They have a well balanced ground meat/bone/organ/tripe blend. Hope she can come home sooner rather than later!

I had an Irish Setter with a large bare patch on her back. After multiple attempts to find out what the matter was, I was sent to a Dermatologist. After looking at her, and looking at all the tests, he diagnosed her with chronic pancreatitis. She had no digestive problems at that time. (also had IBS during her life time) No treatment. Hair never grew back. Good luck with your pup.

Well she was able to come home earlier today, so we're pretty happy about that. She's not 100% back to full health, but she's eating again and hasn't vomited for a while, and nice and hydrated thanks to her IV overnight. She's definitely perked up compared to yesterday so that's nice to see, but still very tired and a bit off. Will have to be on a few different medications for a few days but should start to see some improvement quickly now that she's on antibiotics. And - the vet was able to get her a new food that she hasn't had before so she's pretty stoked about that!
