Damariscotta Veterinary Clinic Answers Questions About Animal's Diets
Date:1/14/2013

Damariscotta, ME (PRWEB) January 14, 2013

The holidays are finally over, and people everywhere are starting to work on making better food choices. Often thought of as one of the family, a beloved pets’ diet shouldn’t go overlooked. One question veterinarians get asked all the time is: Is it safe to feed my pet people food?

Although many dietary indiscretions work themselves out, there are those that develop into acute pancreatitis and need immediate medical attention. Acute pancreatitis is the sudden inflammation of the pancreas. Ingesting fatty food or too much food can cause the pancreas to become inflamed. Once this happens, the pancreas stops functioning which then causes pain and often vomiting. It is a serious condition that can also cause depression and occasionally shock and death.

As little as one piece of meat or fat can stimulate acute pancreatitis in some pets, especially if the pancreas has been previously irritated. What is considered a large amount for one pet is different for others, depending on the size, age and health of the pet.

Some other foods that can cause toxic reactions or gastrointestinal upset are: chocolate, raisins, grapes, nuts, milk or cream, mold covered foods, onions, garlic or any other food containing the previously mentioned foods. It is best not to feed table scraps at all, but if you must, do not give fatty foods.

Call a veterinarian immediately if a pet has any unusual behavior, vomiting, diarrhea, or lethargy. There is also a Pet Poison helpline: (800)213-6680. Damariscotta Veterinary Clinic encourages pet owners to avoid causing their pets any undue stress or pain, and just refraining from feeding pets any people food at all.
