My dog Marshal who I train from a pup for duck hunting found it and gotten sick for 2 days he was vomiting> when i took him to the vet I found out he had pancreatitis and the bill was going to be $2000 witch i do not have my vet worked with me he let me take all the med's he would need home and for me to give them to him 3 different pills 3 I.V. Bags witch i had to give 1/2 in the morning and the other 1/2 in the evenings and also the pills he was good when i had to put the needle in him he sat for 25 minuets each time the hard part was and still is giving him the pills today was the first time in over a week he ate sold food and drank water he needs to take two pills in the am and 2 in the pm for the next four days looks like hes going to live he got this from some one trowing scraps of food in my yard. Any dog can get this from eating people food if you care for your dogs do not give them the food we eat they have there own food and should eat that only

Sorry to hear about your dog. I hope he makes a complete recovery. Thanks for posting your story. I try very hard not to give my dog people food. I do sometimes see her chewing on something in the yard. It usually turns out to be bread, possibly dropped by a bird.
Its almost impossible to monitor their every move, especially since we assume they are safe in their own yard. Lesson to be learned here guys.

Sorry to hear. My dogs always ate dog food and only dog food, save a burger that fell off the grill. There are many things that we consider innocuous that can harm or kill pets. Is there a chance that someone threw intentionally bad stuff to your dog?

I think about this as I'm making the rounds with my pup: what sicko leaves tainted food out for a dog to pick up? I always try to keep an eye on what he's rooting around for. Best wishes for both of you, and a tip 'o the hat to your vet for the "time-payment plan".

Food refusal is an important part of any training program. Glad to hear your pup will make it.

I went through pancreatitis with a Boston Terrier a number of years back. As she came out of it, I thought I was going to lose her, she just would not eat. Ironically, it was people food that saved her. She was very fussy about what she would eat. I would have to bring home a variety of stuff to see what appealed to her that day. one the way home, I would stop at fast food burger place, taco bell, deli, Pizza parlor, etc. I would take ONLY A VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF THESE FOODS, MASH IT UP WITH WATER AND ADD IT TO THE PRESCRIBED FOOD. The amount she actually got was more for aroma, to stimulate appetite, than actual substance. It worked(for her,... I put on some pounds with all the leftover human junk food I brought home each day! :)). Also, for pills, I had to use liverwurst, the ONLY way she would take them.

They purposely poisoned your dog, it's happened before to my wife before we got married. Maybe your dog barked too loud or pooped too close to their fence, who knows? Karma is a mother fudger though, they'll get theirs
