One of my dogs, Gem, had a nasty bout of pancreatitis awhile back. She presented with bloody stool and bloody vomit. She has recovered quite nicely but those first symptoms were really scary for me. Now she is dealing with anal gland problems. She is fed a pre-made raw diet which is low in fat and gets high quality training treats. My other cavaliers are fed exactly the same food as Gem and (so far) have had no problems. It would be interesting to see if there is a genetic factor. (She and Monty are from the same breeder and have the same sire). I hope she never has another bout of either of these problems. I will be watching Carol's site for more info. Thank you for the link. Her story about Bonnie is heart-breaking.
