Q. My dog had pancreatitis recently.He was treated and recovered wonderfully. I feed stella&chewy and ziwipeak. Should I continue or give limit ingredien

Answered By

A. I am not familiar with that particular diet. If he has been on that for a long time without any previous problems then it should be fine as long as it isn't particularly rich. If dogs have sensitive tummies then changing diets can trigger off problems so ideally you don't want to change it. If it does seem to be causing a problem you need to find a good quality bland diet.
