Hello, I am Dr RB;) Pancreatitis is a very painful condition.. I would wager that her panting is due to abdominal pain. Did her veterinarian send her home with a pain medication? If so, she is probably due to a dose. If not, I would suggest you call your veterinarian and request one called in to a 24 hour pharmacy.. I hope this is helpful:)
