Sounds like you're doing everything you can to get your dog back to good health, or at least manageable health.
I don't have any ideas to add to what you are doing, but write to let you know I have read your post and I am sure other have and will. Maybe someone has some experience they can share that will at least help you understand some of the variables/aid/help.
Thanks. Now for tonight hes acting like he has to pee but very little comes out. Not sure if its a side effect of the pepsid?
I am just now seeing this discussion.
Afraid I can't be of much help. I did see your other post on the peeing issue.
I did look up the medications and don't see any red flags other then Pepcid should be used with caution in dogs with kidney and liver problems. I doubt your Vet would prescribe this if he felt it was not appropriate. Myself and many people I know, my kids included, have often used this with no adverse effects.
My daughter's little dog, younger than yours, has chronic pancreatitis problems and has been at the Vet's at least 3 times with flare ups and whopping Vet bills. She too was put on IV's, fasted and sub-Q fluids at home. She was pretty sick for about a week. She has been strictly on Science Diet ID food, not much of anything else, and she has not had any more flare ups.
Due to the age of your dog, it may take a longer time to recover or something else may be going on.
Hope the Vet can give you some answers tomorrow.
My Maltese had pancreatitis, it also effected his liver. It was so bad that he was on IV for three weeks and Had to process chicken and vegetables.
Do NOT do a liver biopsy. The live enzymes are high because of his condition right now. He is on all of the right medications, except one. You need to have your vet write a script for pancreatic enzymes called, Pancreaze, 4200 unit caps. Give him one cap 20 mins. before each meal
It will help digest the food so the pancreas does not have to work that hard. Do not give dog food or ANY FOOD WITH OIL OR FAT! It will make the condition worse and even cause it. Dogs can not eat or digest fats! Boil chicken, brown rice and mix vegetables. Feed him very small meals. There is a vitamin called SAM-E. Give him that as well. My dog was near death. It;s painful, so he'll be resting for a month, depending how bad it got. You are doing your best, just don't let the vet drain you. The liver will repair itself when he feels better. But check it again in a few months.
