What Is Pancreatitis?
As a dog parent, your top priority is to make sure that your pup leads a happy and healthy lifestyle. And, while many other health conditions are easy to spot, it is easy to mistake the symptoms of pancreatitis for something less serious. But, they should not be. After all, the pancreas plays an important role in aiding digestion. However, when the enzymes secreted by the pancreas are activated before they make it to the small intestine, they begin to digest the pancreas itself. This ultimately leads to the inflammation of the pancreas.
Acute pancreatitis only lasts for a brief period but can still cause extreme discomfort for your pooch. Chronic pancreatitis, on the other hand, refers to ongoing inflammation and can eventually lead to an inability to digest foods properly. Whether your dog is dealing with short-term or long-term issues, it is important to take the steps to alleviate their discomfort and reoccurrence. Chief among these steps is to switch to an anti-inflammatory diet.
Signs Of Pancreatitis In Dogs
It is fair to say that it is not always easy to tell if your dog is suffering from pancreatitis as the symptoms can be mild or severe. But thankfully, there are a few tell-tale signs to look out for, including:
If your furry friend is displaying any of these symptoms, we advise you to visit the vet at the earliest opportunity. Your vet will help to rule out any other health problems before treating your pooch. As soon as your dog’s condition is stable, it is wise to keep them on a low-fat diet to reduce the risk of recurrence.

As your dog gets up there in years, the risk of pancreatitis increases. Not to mention, certain breeds, such as miniature schnauzers and cocker spaniels are more prone to develop this condition than others. The good news is that our food is suitable for all breeds that are 2 months and older.

I cannot praise this brand enough for how much this food has changed my dog’s way of life. She has always had tummy issues and has gone through pancreatic flare-ups a couple of times. Her energy, 💩 and overall health is phenomenal. I would highly recommend trying this as an alternative to vet-prescribed food as all the foods I’ve tried have not done her many favours. Customer service is lovely too!
Happy this food ticks the environmentally friendly box and that my dog loves it.
It also seems to be helping his anal gland problem as it makes his poo firmer!Happy the packaging is compostable - time will tell how compostable.
Took a while to consider swapping over to Bug Bakes, but it is well worth doing it... We tried Tess, our 7-year-old Collie, on the sample snacks first and she took to the new food really quickly. Her energy levels are higher and she seems brighter and more active. She has also been less prone to tummy upsets (none in fact!) so far and is more 'regular' since switching her. I would recommend anyone trying their furry friend on this
