Common Cause of Dog ER Visits – Pancreatitis

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, here’s an important reminder from your friends at VUCC.

Feeding your dog a fatty meal (sharing Thanksgiving leftovers anyone?) can cause a painful condition in your dog called pancreatitis. This is one of the most common Holiday veterinary emergencies.

Pancreatitis is a very painful condition. Dogs often will vomit, will have tummy pain and may have diarrhea. Pancreatitis can become severe and require hospitalization. Sometimes, it can be life threatening.

If your pet is vomiting, don’t wait and don’t check facebook or google for the answers. Get your pup checked out by a veterinarian. For more information about pancreatitis see the link below:
