Willow May Have Pancreatitis or Gastroenteritis

I've been dealing with an under the weather Willow all weekend. She threw up either Friday night or early Saturday morning in her crate. Threw up again in the morning. Then she refused her breakfast Saturday. Layed around and slept most of the day. Then she kind of came out of it and eventually ate her dinner, even though she turned her nose up at it when I first put it down. Was fine all night and ate breakfast on Sunday. Seemed fine during the morning and even went for walk. By afternoon she seemed sluggish and then refused to eat her dinner. Had really loose stools when I took her out in the early evening, but then after she did her business she wanted to play! Wouldn't eat the dinner that I left down though. Then she threw up sometime during the night and again refused her breakfast.

I was able to get her into the vet this morning. No fever but he said it felt like she was having some tenderness in the stomach area. He feels she has gastroenteritis or possibly mild pancreatitis. She was mildly dehydrated and he gave her subcutaneous fluids just under the skin between her shoulder blades. She wasn't dehydrated enough to warrant intravenous fluids, thankfully. She also got an antinausea medication shot and a stomach protectant shot and was sent home with canned food for sensitive stomachs and some probiotics. She was not a happy puppy! My poor baby. The vet is hopeful that we can get her stomach straightened out and wean her off the special dog food and back onto her normal food. I sure hope so.

There's been so many postings lately regarding pancreatitis and I was dreading receiving that as a possible diagnosis. She's gone off her feed and felt poorly once or twice in the past but it had only lasted a day and then she was back to her normal, devilish self. If she's not back to normal in a couple of days, we are to go back in for further testing. I'm just praying that she snaps out of this.

I hope this is nothing serious and that Willow is feeling better soon. I just went through this exact same thing with Molly about two weeks ago. We had exactly the same treatment except she also had Metronidizole for 10 days. Of course, Molly was difficult and would not eat the bland diet. I used a little baby food at first and then just had to put her back on her regular food. The vomiting stopped right after our vet visit and her stool slowly got back to normal. She is totally fine now. I hope Willow responds to this treatment she is on and is back to normal quickly.

Hope Willow feels better soon! My understanding is that dogs with pancreatitis are pretty sick, so hopefully, it's not that, and just a mild tummy upset!
