I put this in the health forum but no one looked at it.

Our poodle Zack was diagnosed today with Pancreatitis. He is 1 years old. Could you tell me what causes this? Also is there any good places I can go to get some reading on it. They expect him to make a full recovery but I feel I should have caught this. I've felt something was wrong for awhile but everything was always okay. today he coughed up what I believe was blood so I took him in and they checked him out and turns out it was Pancreantitis.

Anyone who has been through this I'd love to hear from you and your support is greatly appreciated.

Also he doesn't get table scraps or any people food for that matter. He is currently fed Diamond Naturals Lamb and rice. He had been on Purina products most of his life but we switched him to Maxximum and for the last 2 months he has been on Diamond and has been doing well, so we thought.

Anyways I'm a wreck.

They say he will make a full recovery, but I feel I should have known something was wrong

Oh no! Many hugs to you and Zack. I am sending my prayers he makes a full recovery.

Pancreatitis is really kind of an unknown in some cases. Having small dogs myself - it is a concern.

More hugs and prayers!

Thank you so much for the links and support. He seems to be in better spirits now. Ofcourse he has a long few days of recovery ahead but he has that spark back in his eyes so hopefully the medicine is helping
