'Tis the season for holidays...and pancreatitis

The holidays are almost here and veterinary practices are gearing up to treat some common seasonal complaints. One of these issues, pancreatitis, can stem from getting into the garbage or eating fatty table scraps—turkey skin, chocolates, and other rich foods—that pets get all too much of at this time of year.

So especially over the next few months, it’s a good idea to find out if it’s pancreatitis first when canine patients present with vomiting, abdominal pain, or anorexia.
