So we are thinking we are on the mend. Ate and drank with no vomiting so far. Last diarrhea was 5am, pulled cath so stopped fluids and iv meds.....god I hope this is it. I lost his brother 3 yrs ago to pancreatitis and acute liver failure and thats all I've been thinking about. I also have convinced myself his mast cell has gone to his pancreas...... Not a rational thought, I should know better, BUT doesnt help.
Extra Fat consumption is the usual suspect but a lot of times you have no idea. Bean hasnt had one thing out of the ordinary in his diet so that is not his deal. You can also get pancreatitis secondary to liver failure and I have seen it in dogs secondary to a splenic mass and liver masses.
I am sure dogs can get cancer in their pancreas thus causing pancreatitis but it is highly unlikely mct would cause it. I am one to jump to worst case scenario on my dogs and we just removed a mct off him in December so I Had convinced myself it had meted to his pancreas. Highly unlikely.
We are feeding a low fat diet right now and will switch back in a week or so.
