Hello I am Dr. Joey. Thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 16 years of experience. I look forward to working with you.

However, I need a bit more information in order to provide you with an answer to your question. I do need clarification if you are wondering the causes of this or treatment for pancreatitis or at-home therapy to try for diarrhea?

As well a few questions to help me clarify what is going on:

1) How long has she had the severe diarrhea (days, weeks, months)?

2) Any vomiting or appetite changes?

3) Is she on any medication(s) right now and if so what are these?

4) Has she already been in to see her vet for this current bout of diarrhea, and if so what testing was performed and what therapies were already tried?

Thanks for providing a bit more information.
