Did he/she has a long recovery? How long in the hospital? Any recurrence? I'm so worried about my girl .
Remy was in the hospital overnight. Luckily she didn't have any recurrence and once all the blood levels went back to normal, she lived the rest of her life on regular dog food.
Dixie, one of my pups, got into the garbage and was in the ER for a couple of days. Once all of her labs came back normal, they tried putting her back on regular dog food, but she had another flare up. So she's on a special diet for it and has been on it for a couple of years.
I think it all depends on the dog. With Emma's age, I'd prolly be a bit leery and keep her on a special diet.

Thanks Laura. Yes that's what the vets told me, a strict diet. I'm just so worried about her. The picture of her unconscious will be etched into my memory forever.
I know it will Veronica. Hopefully she'll recover from this and give you many more years. Keep hope.

Veronica, my friends Beagle(age 12) had acute pancreatitis last year. She was REALLY sick like Emma. She was in intensive care for about a week and was sent home on special food/treats. She has not had a relapse since but unfortunately just got diagnosed with bladder cancer this summer. Fortunately she has been tolerating the treatment well.
Casey was in the hospital about 5 days, when she came home she was still weak for sometime. She was on a special dog food...and strict orders to stay away from fatty foods. We never had any recurrence but we stayed on the special food for a long time. She did go back on her reg dog food (pinnacle) about 3 years later and did fine, but again we watched her fat intake...boiled carrots or green beans helped keep her weight down and kept her full. You and Emma will continue to be in my prayers. Take care
P>S> Casey went on to live to be 14
Thank you for your answers. It's helping reading other peoples surviving and success stories.
Megan: I'm sorry your friend's beagle got cancer. She had been through enough with the pancreatitis Hope she'll continue to do well on the treatment and have a wonderful long life.
Oh, no, Veronica. I must have missed your other post. Poor Emma--lots and lots of good thoughts for her.
