    What is the best dog food for a dog who has pancreatitis?

    My 10 year old terrier mix has pancreatitis. She is currently on medi-cal gastro and seems to be doing ok but my gut instinct is still not happy with it. Ive tried to find a low fat/low protein dog food with a better reputation but we live in a relatively small city and I haven't been able to come up with a better alternative. what do you suggest?

    My dog also had pancreatitis.  The dog food our vet suggested was Science Diet i/d dog food.  It required a prescription, but was available through the vet or PetSmart.  You might even be able to find it online.

    I agree with vettergt, Hill's Prescription I/D is an excellent choice.  It's bland, but still has the nutrional value needed for a dog to remain on it long term.  You can also talk to your vet about any options similar to I/D that may not be as expensive.  You can only purchase it from a vet or from the Hill's website.
