I am sorry to hear you are worried about Teddy. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

How long has he had pancreatitis? How is he being treated for it?

These symptoms fit with pancreatitis. Usually we treat pancreatitis with pain medication, injections for the vomiting, fluids, and sometimes antibiotics. Often a dog needs to be hospitalized until the vomiting stops, so they can be started on oral medication. If a dog is vomiting, you can't give medication by mouth; it just stimulates more vomiting.

Let me know how your vet is treating him for pancreatitis and what other questions you have.
