The pancreas significantly impacts food digestion and regulates blood sugar levels. This small organ is present at the left side of the upper abdomen and is surrounded by some other organs including the small intestine. The pancreas can be divided into two parts that differ in their function. One is the larger section called the exocrine pancreas which plays an important part in the metabolism of sugar, fats, and proteins. The other section called the endocrine pancreas release hormones that control the blood sugar levels. When inflamed, the pancreas releases digestive enzymes in an unregulated fashion that begin to digest the tissues adjacent to the pancreas which increases inflammation.  Dogs having pancreatitis can experience the symptoms like lethargy, anorexia, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Consuming meals having high-fat content, medications, and abdominal trauma or tumor can result in pancreatitis.  Initially, Diagnosis is made by physically examining the pet and by doing blood work. Abdominal ultrasound can help in evaluating the abdominal area thoroughly.  Intravenous fluid therapy is required for treatment along with medication to control vomiting, pain management, and withholding of food or water orally for 24-48n hours to rest the pancreas.
