In dogs, pancreatitis typically presents with vomiting and diarrhea, fever, a hunched posture, as well as anorexia and fatigue due to the pain and suffering caused by the inflamed pancreas. Additionally, an acute attack of pancreatitis can lead to inflammation of nearby arteries and veins, and even trigger renal failure.
Unfortunately there is no specific treatment for canine pancreatitis, though supportive treatment in the form of antibiotics for any present infections, as well as fluids and pain medication, can go a long way in helping the dog to hopefully recover. Fluids and pain medication are especially important components for treating pancreatitis in dogs, as dehydration and fatigue from pain can both be fatal to dogs with distressed pancreases.

Dog owners in Michigan who cannot take their dogs with them on a vacation will be thrilled to find a boarding facility where their dogs will be pampered while they stay in luxurious suites. People can use the facility's online web cam to see how much their dogs are enjoying themselves.
Dogs in Club Suites will sleep comfortably on raised orthopedic cots with sheepskin bedding. Club Suites measure between 24 and 72 square feet. The Signature Suites measure between 36 and 60 square feet. Dogs in these suites will rest comfortably on luxury daybeds with blankets. These suites have soundproof walls and television sets. Dogs in both types of suites have two complementary play sessions daily. They receive gourmet biscuits for bedtime treats.
Dogs are served premium dog food with lamb and rice. Gourmet meals of chicken pot pie or beef stew are available for an additional charge.
Extra pampering is available for a small fee. Dog owners who want their pets to receive extra attention will be delighted to find out that the dogs can be tucked in with a bedtime story. Dogs who want a lot of affection can receive extra cuddling and petting. People who want their dogs to get exercise can pay for private play sessions. Those who want pictures of their dogs enjoying themselves can have photos emailed to them.
Interested parties can visit the facility's website to learn more.
