    Default Louie is ill

    Our bleinheim cavalier Louie (3) has just had a really bad weekend. He was diagnosed with Pancreatitis on Saturday and spent Saturday night in hospital in UCD in Dublin. We are really worried about him and so is his big half brother Sam. Has anybody else had an experience of this?

    I'm so sorry!! Poor little Louie! I hope he feels better soon. I don't know much about Panreatitis, but I have heard of small dogs getting it because they ate something that contained too much fat or grease and couldn't digest it.

    The wonderful guy that cuts my hair said that his shih tzu got it because he got into the garbage and ate a large portion of skin from fried chicken. I've read that giving digestive enzymes on a regular basis can help avoid Pancreatitis, but I would check with your vet to be sure. I hope he gets better soon.

    Vanessa, please keep us posted on Louie's progress. I only recently read about pancreatitis and fatty foods. I'm so sorry Louie is sick. Can you let us know what kind of treatment he gets, and also what to be on the look out for. What were his symptoms and what test had to be performed to diagnose the condition?

    My prayers and thoughts are with you.

    Turkey skin.fatty foods can cause this, as can being overweight or underexercised but sometimes it seems to happen for no apparent reason, too. Do they think it is a chronic state for him or came from something he might have eaten? Hope all will be well for him.
