Natural Treatments For Pancreatitis In Dogs And Cats

What is Pancreatitis and What Causes It in Dogs and Cats?
Pancreatitis in dogs and cats is inflammation and swelling of the pancreas. Both cats and dogs can develop pancreatitis at any age and it can occur in mild or severe forms. Depending upon the severity of the attack, your pet may need IV fluid therapy and medications for pain and inflammation.  The goal of the treatment is to give your pet’s digestive system complete rest so even water intake may be restricted.  Acute pancreatitis is the more severe form that can be deadly and needs immediate medical attention.

Pancreatitis in dogs and cats can be triggered by eating table scraps, a fatty or rich meal, spicy foods or even foods that your cat or dog isn't used to eating.  Being mindful about what you feed your pet can help (avoid trigger foods such as spicy or fatty table scraps) but also be careful to keep trash tightly closed as pets can get pancreatitis from eating spoiled food.

Symptoms of Pancreatitis in Dogs and Cats

  • Loss of appetite
  • Vomiting
  • Pain or distention of the abdomen
  • Diarrhea
  • Dehydration
  • Weakness or Lethargy

Natural Remedies for Pancreatitis In Dogs And Cats

Three key components of the Pancreatitis Kit are all needed to work synergistically to help the pet digest and break down their food:

Lypozyme -a gentle digestive enzyme for dogs and cats that helps break down fats, protein and carbohydrates.  Lypozyme takes the workload off your pet’s pancreas by providing the enzymes readily available for digesting the incoming food. 

Power Probiotic-essential for all pets, but especially for those with a pancreatic condition.  Dogs and cats with pancreatitis need pet probiotics to maintain proper digestive health.  Power Probiotic repopulates good intestinal flora and supports your pet's bowel and immune health, reducing inflammation. Pure, safe and natural--absolutely no fillers!

Liver and Gallbladder Support Supplement for Pets -helps the liver break down fats and improves bile flow.  This helps the liver and pancreas work together to digest fats more easily and reduce inflammation.

Gastro ULC  -provides natural stomach acid relief, coating the stomach to relieve pain.  Many pets eat better after using Gastro ULC. 

Yorkie's Pancreatitis Improves Naturally!

"Layla is our Yorkshire Terrier who was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Our vet wanted Layla to be put on a canned prescription formula to manage this and I knew I couldn't do that because I didn't agree with the ingredients in these foods. I talked to a friend who had used Ask Ariel's products and diet suggestion in the past for her Yorkie with great success. Layla was put on Ask Ariel's Lypozyme and Power Probiotic along with the natural diet. Layla's Spec numbers went from 740 (under 400 is considered normal) in October, down to 164 in February...I recommend Ask Ariel to anyone I meet who is dealing with a dog with health issues."

How to Avoid Pancreatitis Flare-Ups

Although Pancreatitis can be a deadly disease, it can be prevented. The best way to prevent a pancreatitis flare-up is to avoid giving your pet table scraps, keep them on a low fat diet and keep the trash tightly closed.  Have healthy, low fat treats such as a few small pieces of lean meat or baked fish, cooked or raw vegetables or low fat freeze dried fish or venison treats. Avoid treats with sugars such as molasses as that creates more work for the pancreas!  Make sure all family members and house guests understand the ramifications of giving table scraps.  Be sure trash is properly sealed and place any greasy cooking pans away from pesky paws.

If your pet is diagnosed with pancreatitis, it is important to use a low fat, high fiber diet to avoid any future flare-ups.  Many of these pets may also have food allergies, irritable bowel or elevation of the liver enzymes (e.g. sluggish bile flow).   Please include your pet's diet and health issues on the order form at checkout.  Ask Ariel will provide a diet suggestion on the packing slip that comes with your product directions.

Husky Recovers From Pancreatitis with Use of Natural Supplements


"We got some great news today...our 13 year old diabetic Siberian Husky "daughter" Emma just got a positive report regarding her pancreatitis.  Her levels, which were almost 1,000 are now normal.  I have got to credit your LypoZyme capsules for contributing to this.   Emma is also a "new dog" as far as her activity level is concerned and we can tell that she is feeling good.  You have a customer as long as we are blessed with Emma as a family member. The picture was taken only last week."   Errol -  Arizona
