Thanks so much for the info Jo iíll Look into it further.

So far so good with the pancreatitis. Pep hasnít had anymore spews since the day of her diagnosis. We are still just having half size daily meals and no supplements. Just taking things slowly.

That is very good news.  Pancreatitis is a fickle problem. Just keep your fingers crossed!

This is not intended to point a finger but it is interesting that when I was treated with Chinese herbs it gave me really dreadful heartburn to the extent that I had to stop using them.  I tried it for three months but I just had to give up the treatment.

 Once pancreatitis has been diagnosed you have to be careful with all that you give to Pepper to avoid another episode.  I hope things continue to improve.

Yes I remembered you telling me about the heartburn that you got from the Chinese herbs and that was the first thing I brought up with my vet. I also rang the specialist vet that had prescribed them. They claimed that the herbs could in no way cause pancreatitis or make things worse, but recommended to stop using them until she is better. You just never know with Pepper though.

I have given away to rescue doggies all Peppers dried sheeps ear treats and do not think she will be eating carob drops again either. Itís looking like the sweet potato crisps that I make in the oven (with no ingredients other than slow baked sweet potato) will be her only treats moving forward. She is not happy about it at all. She keeps scratching at the pantry door at night. As that is when she would get a sheepís ear.

Iím still worried about her relapsing with the dropped steroid dose (lower than we have ever been). But keeping fingers crossed.
