Pancreatitis. Quite familiar with that malady. We have a 10 year old Schnoodle, rescue mutt. Great little dog! Gotta watch everything he eats or he'll get sick. Sad thing is our pets can't tell us their tummy hurts, this little guy acts like there's nothing wrong but he stops eating when he has flare-ups. His diet consists of prescription diet foods and chicken breast. 15lb dog costs more to feed than my 180lb self does.
Oh yeah, hadn't put this in yet. We have Geezer, Schnoodle and 2 cats, Kahuna and Kolohe. Geezer was ousted 'cause he couldn't adapt to a new born baby, and the cats were adopted from a sailcat parent.
