    DefaultSam has pancreatitis

    Just like Labby mentioned in my first post. I called this morning to check on him and they said that he's not eating and asked me to come visit and bring some food. He was SO happy to see me, and scarfed his food down. They showed me the barium x-rays, which all looked fine, and the vet said that his bloodwork showed pancreatitis. Luckily, it's pretty mild, so he's on four different pills for the next 10 days (Flagyl, Carafate, Reglan, and Tagamet). He sleeping in the sun now with the bunny he got for Christmas. I'm not sure what caused it. A high fat diet can cause it, but Sam eats Chicken Soup kibble and doesn't get table scraps.

    Bodie is so happy to have Sam home. He was looking everywhere, and every few minutes would let out a long, low cry.

    Brenda, Sam & Bodie

    Phew! I'm so glad he's home! Even gladder that you and Bodie have him home!

    I remember when the vet thought Tucker had pancreatitis, he said Tuck would have to come in for a couple of hours a couple of times a week for an IV. They don't do that anymore?

    Glad he's home. We're not sure what caused Dixie's but she is a garbage gut. She once ate a 5 pound pie from Costco and never suffered a bit. She's been put on a special food (prescription) for the rest of her life.

    Remy's started by eating grass. She was fine before that. Suddenly she started to vomit and we couldn't get it to stop. Finally when she vomitted blood I took her to the ER and her levels were off the chart. Thankfully, she recovered quickly and we just watch what she eats and she's doing very well.
