Carol Fowler got some interesting information from one of the researchers into canine pancreatitis for her website on cavalier health, www.cavaliercampaign.com. The researcher says that cavaliers are presenting at a higher rate than many other breeds generally with pancreatitis and there's concern that this is being misdiagnosed and therefore remains untreated. Dogs with chronic diarrhea and/or vomiting or tummy pain may have this problem. If left untreated and if diet isn't adjusted this can get worse and a severe crash of pancreatitis can even be fatal so if you have a cavalier with these signs it may be worthwhile having the possibility of pancreatitis thoroughly investigated.
Carol will be getting this new info on to her website shortly and I'll post a direct link then.
