Pancreatitis and your Pet The pancreas is an organ that produces hormones (like insulin) and secretes enzymes into the intestines to aid digestion. Nestled between the stomach and small intestine, it tends to swell (usually painfully and potentially fatally) when it’s egregiously insulted through a variety of different causes. This inflammation and its effects on the body are referred to as pancreatitis. Pancreatitis can occur after eating a fatty food such as pork, beef, and some other human foods. Dogs and cats that get into garbage are at a high risk of developing pancreatitis. When pancreatitis occurs, the pancreas releases enzymes and other substances into the surrounding area of the abdomen. These substances cause localized inflammation that damages the pancreas and nearby organs; and can lead to life-threatening complications. Diabetes can sometimes result from pancreatitis. The pancreas also secretes insulin, which regulates blood sugar. Signs and Identification Diagnosing pancreatitis can difficult because the symptoms tend be nonspecific. To make identification even more complex, and contribute to the disease’s ranking among the more commonly underdiagnosed diseases in small animal medicine, dogs and cats often suffer different symptoms. Clinical signs in dogs can include: • Anorexia/no appetite • Vomiting • Weakness • Abdominal pain • Dehydration • Diarrhoea Whereas in cats with pancreatitis, clinical signs are more likely to include: • Anorexia • Lethargy • Dehydration • Weight loss • Vomiting and hypothermia • Fever • Abdominal pain • Diarrhoea • Abdominal mass If you have any concerns for the health of your fur baby, please feel free to contact our #BestVetCrew via telephone at 4411-6151 and we will be happy to answer your questions.
