My dog has had a couple of bouts of pancrititis, including one that was almost fatal. He is on the low fat EN dog food that I get from the vet, yet he still is presenting with high levels when usuing the PLI test. He is scheduled to have an ultrasound done with a board certified Internist this coming week. He has been a patient of hers before. My vet wants her to evaluate him again. There is a possiblity that he may have to under go exploratory surgery and to have bx taken during this surgery. I don't mind the exspense....my concern is what are the complcations from this surgery? And if right now, he is acting fine and eating well, why the elavated PLI levels suggesting chronic pancrititis? Can anyone give me advice prior to seeing the internist or what questions other then the ones that I can think of that I may ask the internist. My dog is my little boy. He is 10 years old and he is a cockapoo. I love him very much.
