Acute or chronic canine pancreatitis can be a serious condition in dogs and should first be diagnosed and addressed by a veterinarian.
Pancreatitis is also possible in other animals, including cats. Symptoms in these animals include an unwillingness to eat, vomiting, and an uncharacteristic arching of the back. Inflammation of the pancreas (an organ at the back of the stomach that produces insulin and pancreatic enzymes) can be very painful, so your pet is liable to make its discomfort more clear than usual.
Pancreatitis can eventually result in decomposition of the pancreas and even in death, so any signs of abdominal pain in your dog accompanied by vomiting should be taken very seriously.
Natural Cures: For mild cases of pancreatitis, all that may be required is a period of fasting (no food or water) for 24-48 hours at most to allow the pet's digestive system reset and the pancreas to recover.
My dog recently underwent abdominal surgery for a mass in his liver. His recovery was slow, and come to find out through an abdominal ultrasound 10 days post surgery that he has developed a mild case of pancreatitis. I just wanted to post what was working for my dog but didn't find the heading of pancreatitis. Can I add it? Thanks. Jill

Need Help - Critically Sick Dog!
My mother-in-law's Yacht (Yadt?) Terrier, a German Terrier, has fever and won't eat. She's about 11 or 12 years old.
She thinks it's her liver, maybe leptospirosis. This dog survived a pancreatic infection about 6-8 weeks ago, after iv's and injections round the clock. We thought she was doing well after that, until this weekend. In fact, 3 weeks ago, I saw her and she looked terrific, had lots of energy and was eating well.
Do any of you happen to know what could help that my mil could try? Tonight, she said the dog is about gone. This is her deceased husband's dog that became her close companion after his death.
Thanks for any suggestions.
