Anyone else have experience with this?
My dog Boomer was diagnosed on Sunday with pancreatitis after some truly epic vomiting. He's been back and forth from the vet for the last 5 days, on an IV drip for fluids, and he seems to be improving, it's just that being a first-time dog owner, I don't know what to expect in terms of recovery. Every time I think he's surely on the road to recovery, he'll throw up again or some other step back. Boomer's about 2.5 years old and has been healthy as an ox up to this point, so to have an extended illness like this is crazy frustrating as there isn't a whole lot you can do on your own to turn it around (give him meds, give sips of water, but food won't stay down). I'm not worried about him starving. He could stand to lose a few pounds. Dehydration isn't looming as he's been receiving subcutaneous and IV fluids this week.
Just needed to sound off, see if anyone else out there has experienced what I'm going through. It's been a helluva week.
