    DefaultPug with pancreatitis

    Iggy has had pancreatitis for about 6 months now, a chronic case. He has bouts anywhere from a week to two weeks apart. Sometimes mild, sometimes it'll last for two days. Even on a strict diet, it still gets to him. I'd like to try some kind of enzyme supplement but don't want to get just anything. Wondering if anyone has had a pug who has had pancreatitis and can recommend a good supplement that would at least ease his bouts?

    I am no help . Maybe probiotics? They got this powder you can sprinkle on the food.
    Someone will chime in . The vet has no idea what is causing the pancreatitis? Maybe a low fat food ?

    If you're on FB there are groups that use the holistic route. Maybe something from them???

    I don't have any recommendations (wish I did!), but I wanted to wish your pug a speedy recovery. I hope Iggy starts feeling better soon and doesn't have any more relapses.

    Hi, my Winston suffers with chronic bouts of sickness (not sure what causes it atm), so our vet recommended Protexin Veterinary Synbiotic D-C Daily probiotic and prebiotic capsules for dogs and cats capsules.

    They are quite pricey if you get them from the vets (36 I was charged), but they are about 18 on Amazon :)

    A couple days after I posted the first message, he came down as sick as he has ever been. We took him to the vet and he had to stay there for a night. We weren't sure what was up. It ended up being just another bout with this pancreatitis but they checked for other things such as tumors or anything like that. So that came back clear but now they think he may be diabetic as well. We have to take him in again in a few days to get his blood checked again to be sure but he's been put on a more restrictive diet. Home two days now and seems fine. He's not as active as he usually is and I can tell he's lost weight. He's down four pounds since this started.

    My friend's pug is diabetic. Diagnosed last year. I can put you in contact with her if your Iggy is. There's also a FB group that she says has been helpful!

    Thank you for updating us. Not the diagnosis you want but at least you will know what you are dealing with and it can be managed.

    Poor baby 4 lbs is a lot for a Pug .
    Hopefully they figure it out once and for all . This is very stressful . I would be a wreck .

    We have a pug puppy but also have a palmino. She would have terrible pancreatitis. Our vet suggested Royal Canin Low Fat Gastrointestinal dog food. It is a prescription dog food. We get it from Chewy. If we stick to the food, no more pancreatitis. For a treat we will boil some chicken breast and give her a little. We also use Purina Fortiflora (probiotic supplement you can get from Amazon).
