Pancreatitis In Cats Can Be Life

Pancreatitis refers to the painful inflammation of the pancreas. The cause of pancreatitis in cats is unknown. Symptoms include abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea and anorexia. Pancreatitis can be life-threatening. Untreated chronic pancreatitis can lead to other diseases. Pancreatingitis can cause a variety of symptoms due to gastrointestinal disturbance. Symptoms associated with pancreatitis are often the same as other digestive problems. Vomiting and diarrhoea are common symptoms of Pancitis. Your cat may have difficulty getting comfortable when lying down. Cats with chronic pain usually lose weight in response to nausea, diarrhea, and anemia. You can quickly tell if your cat is dehydrated by gently pulling up the skin between its shoulder blades. If it stays "tented" and does not snap back into place, it may be dehydrated. Pancretitis is a relatively rare condition in cats. It can be difficult to diagnose a mild episode of Pancritis in a cat. Many cats with acute pancreatitis often go undiagnosed. This is because of the transient nature of the symptoms. During a severe pancreatitis attack, pancreatitis may be suspected by a veterinary doctor. Veterinary treatment is needed if a cat has pancreatitis. To allow the pancreatreas to rest and heal, your vet may recommend the following treatments: IV therapy to replenish lost fluids and nutrients. Antibiotics and pain medicine to treat possible infections. Slow reintroduction of food as a cat begins to feel better. Chronic pancreatitis flare-ups are often more manageable. If your cat has previously been diagnosed with Pancitis, they are often less manageable. You should watch for signs of future flare-up like reduced food intake. . . .
