I can't use that spreadsheet thing for some reason, and I'm having a hard time understanding everything else..

I read a lot of different things on google about it..

I went and bought 600mg dose of calcium for humans, (without vit. D)
Should my dogs be getting half (300mg) or whole pills? 9and 10 lb dogs..

Ehh nevermind, I'm just going to start home cooking for her. And adding some fresh pet in. I've been reading a lot on the whole dog journal and a few other places about home cooked meals for dogs with pancrease problems.

Dog food is stressful stuff :/

Just thought of something, freshpet has the same ingredients as a homecooked pancreatitis diet, chicken, turkey, rice, eggs etc. how can it be too high in fat?

Sorry scruffy I didn't mean that to sound mean towards you at all. I just can't find one "wholesome" ingredient in that food. I'm sure it just passes right through them and that's why nothing gets stuck for the pancreas..

Moisture content in canned foods is suppose to help but idk anything about the fat being more fat?

I could but I don't see the point in mixing the WD unless it has some amazing pancrease healing ingredient that I'm missing (corn, corn, or corn?)

Oh and I also think she has allergies to a kind of grain, every time I feed her treats with grain she gets red and itchy... So great.

I'm not sure yet actually. Last week she got into gum and while getting that taken care of and running blood work the vet noticed her pancreas levels were off. She was hospitalized for a day, we took her to my regular vet (who wasn't open when we had the emergency) for follow up bloodwork and he gave me WD and said she may need to be on it for life. We are waiting for the results which ill get Monday but he was a lot more concerned than the previous vet (he said the levels were quite high)

I know I can home cook, and probably will when we move out of my in laws. But for now, can I have some help finding an alternative to W/D I just can't stand to feed this!!

Science diet WD-
Protein 18.7
Fat 8.7
Carbohydrate (NFE) 51.1
Crude Fiber 16.5
Soluble Fiber 1.1
Insoluble Fiber 28.4
Whole Grain Corn, Powdered Cellulose, Corn Gluten Meal, Chicken Liver Flavor, Chicken By-Product Meal,

^ this isn't nutrition for dogs!



Has anyone tried fresh pet selects? The ones with lower protein that aren't grain free? ( I guess she needs less protein and less red meat?)


Freshpet roll-
Crude Protein (min) 11.0%
Crude Fat (min) 7.0%
Crude Fiber (max) 2.0%
Moisture (max) 73.0%
Chicken, Turkey, Eggs, Poultry Liver, Chicken Broth, Carrots, Brown Rice, Peas, Rice Bran, Carrageenan, Salt, Natural Flavors.

I've always been big on high protiens lots of meats no grains etc but I was told some dogs can't handle it and the foods I've been feeding cause this in the ones that can't (they were on NV instinct)


Please help frown

My puppy (8 months old) is now staying in the hospital for a few days with pancreatitis. Lat night she ate 13 prices of stride gum... With xylitol, I gave her peroxide, a little too much peroxide, I panicked...
She threw up all of her stomach contents, we went to bed thinking everything was fine, This morning she threw up about 4 times especially after eating so I took her to the vet,

They ran blood work and instead of finding signs of liver failure an low blood sugar (what happens when dogs eat xylitol) they found high blood sugar and pancreatitis...

The vet thinks it could be from the peroxide, but said not to blame myself because she could have been in liver failure just 30 minutes after eating the gum..

I'm worried, does anyone have experience with this? Will she be okay? Is he damaged for the rest of her life? Will she even live? I know these are questions for my vet but I cry too much when I think about it I couldn't even ask...

I've kept her on the proin, it's 1/4 of a 50 mg pill.

I've done 1/4 of a 500mg vit. C pill and 1/8 tsp of solid gold's berry balance.

I'm gonna take her off the Vit. C this week. And have her ph checked next week. Then try to take her off proin if she is balanced..

But so far so good pees a lot less in the daytime and no accidents at night. I'm just not sure which method is helping her right now. Guess we will see next week.
