About Pancreatitis: Canine Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas that can occur in two very different forms: acute pancreatitis which occurs suddenly, and chronic pancreatitis which is characterized by recurring or persistent form of pancreatic inflammation. It is more common in overweight dogs, and in specific breeds, such as Miniature Schnauzers, Miniature Poodles, Cocker Spaniels and Siamese cats. In dogs it is often happens after consumption of a high fat meal (i.e. bacon - saturated fats); the pancreas gets overworked in production of the enzymes to digest all the fat and becomes inflamed.

Although saturated fats should be avoided, Omega 3 fats can help. Although efficacy on chronic pancreatitis is unknown, research has shown that Omega 3s given to dogs can help with lowering blood lipids and assisting with pancreatitis in dogs.

Choosing dog food with added enzymes and a healthy balance of Omega-3s and -6s is a good idea, but adding additional Omega 3 supplements to a dog’s diet may increase the chance of faster recovery or prevention. So yes, you can safely give Ultimate Canine to your dog with pancreatitis.
