TREATMENT OF CANINE PANCREATITIS
The initial treatment of canine pancreatitis is hydration, pain management, and fasting which gives the pancreas an opportunity to rest and slow the production of enzymes. Depending on the severity of the case, there may need to be a hospital stay to allow for pain management and hydration through IV. For more severe cases with sustained symptoms, your vet may prescribe some different medicines to help return your pup to some form of normalcy. After this, a low-fat diet will likely be prescribed.
There are not any “at-home” remedies for pancreatitis. It can only be effectively treated by your vet. And even knowing this, the initial treatment isn’t a one-time miracle cure. As a matter of fact, most dogs who have suffered from acute pancreatitis end up on a specialized low-fat diet for the rest of their lives.
Some products that can be helpful in treatment are fatty acid supplements and an all-natural raw food diet. As always, consult with your vet before changing your dog’s diet or administering supplements.
