Q. 3 tests for pancreatitis have been negative for our mini schnauzer. He has all the symptoms and is in vet hospital being treated for the disease.

Answered By
DAVID ELBEZE, DVM, MRCVS

A. I would like to help you with a second opinion, but i am going to ask you to describe the symptoms as pancreatitis can vary greatly as far as symptoms goes and some of those symptoms could help me point you to other possibilities as well (IBD, EPI, foreign body, tumor ect...).

if you want to have a more throughout consult with the option to share pictures and ask more question, feel free to click on my profile name and request a private consult.
