On Dr. dobias’s Natural Healing website, he recently posted a great article about pancreatitis, how animals get it and the natural approaches to healing it. He begins with implication dry food in causing the inflammation in some animals, and I definitely agree.
The additions to his treatment suggestions would be homeopathy. He is a great homeopath, so maybe I just missed it in the article. Most importantly, I encourage everyone to switch to feeding fresh food at least part of the time (and remember to have adequate calcium in the diet).
