See that big P word up there? That’s what I have. Apparently it’s because I have something called a pane-cree-us. You probably have one too.
It made me puke lots. I’m not used to puking and I didn’t like it.
This was right on the tail end of recovery from my back thingie that made me have to stay still for 2 weeks! To help my back get better the vet gave me a pill to make me look like Arnold Schwarzenegger called a steroid.
I didn’t get big muscles, but I did get the pukes… Miniature schnauzers are 10-20% more likely to get pancreatitis than other breeds. I guess the steroids helped get the pane-cree-us sick.
(A tip to my friends, don’t search Google Images for dog pancreas…apparently my insides are not excessively handsome like my outer self.)
I’m on a special food from the vet and my mom person talked to her friends at Iams to help determine with my vet the best food for me going forward to keep my innard part from getting sick.
I haven’t been able to be groomed for months because of all this. Now you know how much I enjoy working up a big stink in my furs, but I’m getting a little too scuzzy even for me!
