    Pancreatitis/epic in breed

    Hi
    I’m a new member to this site , I thought I would pop my experience with this breed on just incase any other owners minipin”s are going through any symptoms like mine have

    Ravenous appetite but loosing weight
    Being sick and bringing undigested foot back up / bile
    Lethargic / very quiet / not usual self /refusing food

    Noisey stomach ..gurgling etc
    Abdominal pain ... dog in praying position
    These are the symptoms my boy had
    And was diagnosed with a condition called
    EPI / PANCREATITIS
    Also know as a big breed illness
    But not the case , it effects all sizes as my research found out
    My second minpin (girl) has also nowbeen diagnosed with same condition and both dogs are not related
    Please just be aware of these symptoms in this breed and have your babies checked if they have similar symptoms
    The treatment for this disease is pancreatic enzymes and steroids
    It was a horrible time going through this and I just want to raise awareness to other minpin owners
    Thanks for reading xx

    Hello Elizabeth, welcome to the forum, and thank you for adding your experience. An unfortunate coincidence to have EPI in two unrelated Min. Pins.
