    So sorry you are going through this My brothers Boston had this same issue. They told them he has acute pancreitis something that wont go away but can be managed with a new diet. @Twice helped me figure out what he needed and shouldnt have. Bascially you would need to cut the fat and sodium out of his diet. He is now doing amazing with the new food (home cooking and now takes multi viatims (puppy). Hugs and kisses to you all! Please give Duke a huge hug and kiss from us!

    We've started putting all three of our dogs (Gracie and the two Yorkies) on the kibble recipe found in the recipe threads. They love it and I control exactly what goes into it. Prayers for a quick recovery.
    It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men that have died (in battle). Rather we should thank God that such men have lived.

    (genetically engineered salmon) this year...BAD for pets and us because this will most
    likely be used in the pet foods and in our food supply because it does not have to be on
    the label as such. If he's doing well on the NVI you have him on, stay w/it and cut it w/
    green beans. As someone else suggested, you might cook homemade, my friend gives
    boneless, skinless chicken breasts, green beans & a little rice & sometimes, boiled, drained
    ground round w/the same added. Again, I will PM the name of an emzyme to add.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    Ohhhh Karen! Not my sweet Duke. I'm so sorry..I'm late to all this! How worried you must be and just know I'm so thinking positive thoughts for my boy. I bet they will want him on one of their special diets. I would probably try to home cook for him and see if you could control what they want to control. He has been doing so well...if it is pancreatis his diet will matter. If you decide to use their food..don't stress too much over it. I had a cat with pancreas problems and he was on a Hills special kibble for years. All that matters..is that he is ok..and these foods are developed for a reason. Please let me know.

    How sad it must be really hard to have this pending on you and from what it seems may be a trial and error type of thing
    (breath in , aaand exhale) . :0
    youll find it , dont worry
    I wish your Duke a quick recovery and great responses to the new foods you try . Good luck !!!

    guys please pray.. vet just called Duke is " clinically " better but will not eat for them.. his heart rate is up and BP a little elevated.. BUT when he sleeps they are normal. Duke has never been away from us and I really believe I can get him to eat. They are letting us to a trial tonight and bring him home if he eats great if NOT I have to take him back in am and they will sedate him so he can rest. The vet agrees. he said he barrels over him to get out of the cage and he thinks he just doesn't want to be there..

    I am so upset and worried .. :crying:

    Sorry to hear this and hope when you get him home he will settle down and eat. You have some great advise above and I have nothing to add. Please keep us posted.

    I pray that all goes well and that Duke will eat and everything will be fine while he is home with his family. If he hasn't been away from you then that is probably why he isn't eating for them. I hope he feels better soon!!!
