Ok, so we have a one year old GSD, a female named Ziva. She was diagnoised a week and a half ago with Pancreatitis, and five days ago the vet started us on two teaspoons of PancrePlus with every meal. We feed her two cups of Royal Canine three times a day. Before that, the vet had us give her a packet of FortiFlora only with her dinner, and a 250mg tablet of Metronidazole in the morning and evening. She also gets B-12 injections, since she has a B-12 deficiency.
Since then, she we think she is starting to gain weight, which is good since she dropped a whopping TWENTY POUNDS. What worries us
she doesn't like finishing her meals now. We put water in her food so that she doesn't eat it too fast, and since she won't eat it we'll also throw in some pumpkin, which only encourages her a little bit.
Not only that, but she just sits around all day. We'll take her on a nice long walk once a day, and some basic training throughout the day. We used to have her run a whole lot by throwing sticks in the back yard, but our trainer recommended that we wait on doing that, since she is still developing her muscles, and she could hurt herself in the process.
So... does anyone have an explanation on why she won't finish eating, and that she's lethargic? Is it maybe because she dosen't like her food, and could ANY of this be linked to the Pancreatitis???
P.S. How long does it take for the dog to respond to the enzymes, and when should her bowl movements start looking normal again? And are there any other problems we should look out for?
