Monday Pet Tip: Pancreatitis by Kristel Weaver, DVM
Whether you give your pooch leftover hotdogs or he snatches pulled pork that slipped from your friend's plate, eating barbequed, rich, greasy, or unusual items can lead to pancreatitis. Pancreatitis causes abdominal pain, vomiting, lethargy, poor appetite, and sometimes diarrhea. While some cases are mild, others require hospitalization and aggressive treatment. So ask your guests to keep their barbequed ribs to themselves!
