Canine Pancreatitis

Canine pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas

The main function or the pancreas is the production of insulin and digestive hormones. Canine pancreatitis can be deadly in it’s most severe form and treatable in mild forms.

Is your dog at risk of canine pancreatitis?

Pancreatitis in dogs is not uncommon but little is known about it. Generally it affects overweight dogs and dogs that have a lot of fat in their diet. Older dogs and those with diabetes are also more at risk.

If your dog is not interested in food, is vomiting, has diarrhea and seems generally unwell then the cause may well be pancreatitis.

Unfortunately it is a difficult disease to diagnose. Blood tests and x-rays are used for diagnosis as well as observing the dog’s behavior and symptoms.. Early diagnosis can lead to a faster recovery.

Treatment of canine pancreatitis is expensive and can be complicated. The pancreas must first be rested and no food or drink is allowed. The dog has to be placed on IV fluids. Blood tests and maybe even blood transfusions will be needed. Surgery may be necessary in severe cases.

By now you will have realized that prevention is a whole lot better than cure and canine pancreatitis can be prevented quite easily.

The first thing to do is to prevent obesity in your dog. Some breeds tend to put on weight easier than others so attention to diet is paramount. Feed a good quality light dry dog food which contains no fat, fillers or sugar. A couple of smaller meals a day can work better for digestion than one large meal.

Exercise will keep your dog’s blood sugar levels under control and also prevent weight gain.

If you have an overweight or otherwise “at risk” dog, another option is to give him or her a herbal remedy which works to prevent and treat pancreatitis by maintaining the health of the pancreas, aiding production of insulin and digestive enzymes and helping good digestion. Pancreas Boosteris an all herbal remedy which does all of the above with no side effects.

Pancreas Booster will also prevent relapse which is common even after your dog has recovered from an attack of pancreatitis.

“My wife and I were so worried about our dog, Ginger. He was losing a lot of weight and had very loose, foul smelling stools. We suspected something wasn’t right and took him to our vet, who said that it was his digestive enzymes. Thanks to Pancreas Booster, we found this product, and he is doing great.”
