Answered By

A. A main culprit causing pancreatitis is fat. So a fat reduced diet would be beneficial. There is special food for dogs with gastrointestinal issues like pancreatitis, and it may be more convenient to feed your dog with that for the next few days. This food is available at your veterinarian's office. If you want to cook for your dog , there are many sites on the internet with recipes: put " home cooked diet for dog with pancreatitis" into your search engine.
