Optimal treatment for your dog requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical. Follow-up for acute pancreatitis often includes:

  • Administer as directed any medications prescribed by your veterinarian and contact your veterinarian promptly if you have difficulty treating your dog.

  • Follow dietary recommendations made by your veterinarian. Dogs with pancreatitis often are placed on a low-fat diet and should not be fed table scraps.

  • Consider a weight loss program for obese dogs since obesity may predispose to pancreatitis.

  • Keep your dog under close supervision so that it cannot get into and eat garbage.

  • Observe your dog's activity level, appetite and watch for vomiting or diarrhea. Also watch for signs of abdominal pain, vomiting, loss of appetite or other abnormalities.

  • Actual prescribed follow-up will depend on the severity of your dog's disease, response to therapy and your veterinarian's recommendations.
