Pancreatitis and Dog Food

    My mini schnauzer mix was in the vet hospital for 10 days with acute pancreatitis and kidney failure. The vet prescribed a VERY low fat Rx dog food, which he has been eating for about a month. Does anyone know if he will need to be on this food forever, or will I be able to wean him back safely onto regular dog food. Thanks. Carol

    Hi Carol,
    There are now many low fat diets on the market. What you need to do is ask the vet the fat content that he recommends than spend time at the store reading the back of the bag.
