My 9 year old maltese
-pom cross is hospitalized again this week, the 3rd time in 6 weeks for pancreatitis
. The vets here cannot find a cause. They've done ultrasounds and blood work and even consulted with specialist in internal medicine who concluded that it might be food allergy. He's been on the same vet medicated gastro food for 7 years due to esrly bouts with colitis
. He does not get people food, other than few carrots or plain chicken
every now and again. We need to find cause but we aren't getting answers from our vet. If we can't stop these bouts of pancreatitis, he could die.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the Maltese's name?
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Milo?
Customer: He's 9 years old, had bouts of colitis in his early years, is on Royal Canin Gastro Formula kibble
, he weighs 12 pounds, he has a disc slipped in his back, he is currently on his 4th flare up of pancreatitis.
