I'm sorry to hear of this with Mollie, Vicki. The first order of business should be to have a specCPL blood test performed to see if pancreatitis is still present. While most dogs will remiss within the first week from the onset of symptoms, a chronic recrudescing (relapse without cure in between events) pancreatitis is all too common.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
