My dog is having a pancreatitis episode and I cannot get a vet to do a home visit. He cannot really walk or drop down, he just sits. What should I do?

Hello,

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

How do you know it is pancreatitis that is making him just sit? Is he vomiting? Will he eat?

If you look at his gums, are they pink in color?

Can you take his temperature with a thermometer?

Your answers to these questions will help me help you with Elvis.
