    My 4.5yr old Keeshond, Loki, is sick. He's been having problems since last

    April with what I believe is pancreatitis. He gets all pukey every 3 months

    or so, so we have to watch his diet very closely, supplement his digestive

    enzymes etc. Anyway, with careful management and a watchful eye as to when

    symptoms are returning he's been doing well and been his old happy self.

    Until now.



    As soon as he started with what we call his rigid "tummy-ache" stand (very

    stiff, head down in line with his body instead up etc), we blanded out his

    diet, added the tummy-ache meds to his water etc. And he never did puke. But

    he's lethargic, doesn't even want to be with us (doesn't want up in bed,

    hangs in the other room instead of the family room etc). He's just not

    right.



    My problem is that my hubby hasn't been working, we're behind on bills and I

    only have about $50 I can scrape up for a vet bill - xrays and blood work

    plus the vet evaluation is going to run near $300. I have called every vet

    in the area and offered to let them debit my checking account monthly for

    any cost of evaluation and treatment but no one will take a payment plan. I

    really thought if they had control of putting the charge through to my

    account each month SOMEONE would work with me and see my poor sick dog. But

    I've gotten no where.



    Do you have ANY idea how or where I can get help for my dog? He's just

    barely past being a puppy and I am SO afraid there is something seriously

    wrong with him.



    Thanks for brainstorming with me.

    I would try Keeshond rescue groups. I know that an online Scottie

    group helps with Scottish terriers whose families can't afford needed

    veterinary care; Keeshond lovers probably do the same. Good luck!

    Check with your local humane society. There are somebenefactors that donate for such causes.Otherwise, it may be time to adopt your doggie out until your financial situation improves.

    Hello,
    What are you feeding him? This is what I highly recommend you do. Go to Walmart and buy a 10 lb. bag of chicken quarters for $4.35. Give him one raw quarter a day. Nothing else. No treats, meds for stomach aches. Give it 2 weeks and see what happens. I can make a fair bet these problems will dissapear. Raw bones are not the problem, it's cooked ones that are very dangerous. You should supervise your dog when he eats. If you want to learn more I urge you to join rawfeeding@yahoogroups.com. Read the miraculous stories there whose dogs and cats health have changed after feeding this way. I learned about it a month ago in another frugal group I'm in. I never in a million years thought I would feed raw until I tried it with my dog.

    as someone who has fed raw for close to 2 years, I will NEVER go back to crap in a bag. The difference in my dogs is amazing.

    We raise pure-bred dogs and the raw chicken is AWSOME for them! It is good for their digestion and gives them a beautiful shiny coat as well.

    1) Ask your local animal shelter, SPCA for help. 2) Do you have a college locally that trains future veterinarians? Contact them. They may take on treating your puppy as a teaching assignment for the experience and charge you very little. Hope your pup is feeling better soon. Herlean

    I second the raw diet, it has done wonders for my 5 cats. I only

    caution one thing, one of mine has IBD and is allergic to chicken. If

    it were me I would take a look at the bag/can of food you are feeding

    and see what the protein source is. If it is chicken and you don't see

    improvement on a raw diet in a week then maybe switch up the protein

    source. My cats eat rabbit, duck, and the four that don't have IBD get

    chicken. Raw has helped my brood in so many ways. The rawfed yahoo

    group was great in answering questions and helping me get started.



    Good Luck,

    Cindy

    for your dog getting pancreatitis? I have a sheltie that has had it three times in two months...he has a blood disease called hyperlipidemia and has to eat low fat food...I had my dogs all on raw but his body cant process fats and so I had to take him off till I get the cholesterol level down and then find a way to maintain it. One thing is in order to find out if he had this disease, we had to rule out everything else. Which we finally did ( took months)...please have your vet check that out if you are worried. If you have any questions, email me personally with your number and I will call you and explain it better. Have a great day. tab

    I agree. Pancreatitis is very painful to humans as

    well as to pets. Your doggie may need antibiotics or

    some kind of fluids to ease his little tummy while it

    heals. SInce you really don't know why he is

    vomiting, he really should be seen by some one before

    the situation becomes worst. At some of the larger

    vets that are associated with vet schools, they often

    have social workers that may know of low cost

    services, plus you may also want to try local humane

    society. They have low cost vet service.
