What Causes Acute Pancreatitis In Dogs

by | Aug 31, 2021


Answered by Dr. Jeff Feinman

That would depend on a lot of factors starting with the two big causes. One is putative, which means that it’s hypothetical and that’s the underlying causes and internal energetic imbalance and the physiologic cause has been associated, but no one knows for sure. With fatty foods, especially animal fats, in my experience, infections, which is one of the reasons they use antibiotics to treat it, and there are breed predispositions that predispose certain dogs like miniature snappers to high fatty blood levels that predispose them to pancreatitis. Those are all physical causes. In my world I deal mainly with internal imbalance causes which I believe are energetic in nature. The cause is something that affects the energy balance with the homeostasis of the body reflected in the function of cells like the cells of the pancreas. The most important thing in treatment is to catch it early, which you can do with the behavior, energy, appetite, mood. Follow the theme and make your changes as quickly as possible. A couple of days vomiting is enough, you don’t know that your dog is off or even just a change in mood.
