Pancreatitis
Amount: $5,000.00
Posted by: Molloys in Upstate NY in Greenville, NY.Posted: May 11th, 2011 05:05AM
Breed: BassetTreatment: IV Fluids,Pain,Antibiotics
Vet: 3 Different Ones
1st time took him to Capital District Emergency,Latham,NY for $1300. for 15 hrs. 3p-8am of IV treatment/tests but would not keep him because they are only open off hours so they can get big bucks. Took him from there to internal specialist for a day then took him to opthamologist/internal specialist combo office for balance of treatment for the week to save his eyes as well. Turned out after healing they couldn't operate on his eyes afterall just wasn't a candidate and then 8 months later, now, 2nd bout of pancreatitis on a Sunday again, only lasted 1 day and killed him before I got him to the vet again on Monday morning. Died in my arms and I miss him so, regret that he had to suffer the pain of pancreatitis but the intense cost prohibited me from bringing him in to Emergency on Sunday, wanted to wait for less cost on Monday. Now I'm full of regrets for his suffering. Forgive me Elvis...

Breed: Queensland HeelerTreatment: xrays, iv fluids, antinausea, antibiotic
Vet: Pet Center, Atascadero, Ca.
My 44lb 13yr old Queensland Heeler has had a bout of pancreatitis. We think it was caused by a hearty dinner of bread and gravy. She had severe pain, vomiting,would not eat then finally diarea. She was jaundiced in her eyes and gums. No fever. The majority of the cost was for the 2 day hospitalization, xrays and ultrasound, iv fluids,pain meds and antinausea. My poor dog suffered for 4 long weeks. She has finally recovered but I don't think I would ever let my dog suffer with this same problem again. We are feeding her 1/4 cup rice and 1/4 cup boiled chicken and 1 spoon of low fat cottage cheese. My vet was very good but was unable to give us a time line as to how long it takes for a dog to recover as each dog is different so every day was very stressful for all involved.

Breed: Great PyreneesTreatment: IV, X-Rays, Fluids, Antibiotics, PainMed
Vet: Dr. Flynn Animal Care Center
My Great Pyrenees Samson is still in the Vet Hospital undergoing treatment. His Temp. was 106 and his white blood cell count was 1800. After 3 days his temp is now 103 and white blood cell count is 3300. Still not looking good still vomiting and direra. My younger Great Pyrenees Mollie Mae was the same but is now fine and home. They suspect Pancreatitis playing a part in it along with a Viral Infection. So right now I am at about 2,000 out and still going. I guess when you dont have kids and cant have kids your animals become your kids. I just keep my hopes up and pray.

Breed: Lab MixTreatment: X-rays, I.V. fluids pain meds
Vet: Dr. Teepke
Had to make a humane decision and put my dog down today. Was making no improvement, moaning in discomfort,unable to eat and the vet determined that it would be unlikely she could bounce back from this severe of a bout of pancreatitis without severe complications involving other organs. Given the fact that my dog was a 60 lb., 12 year old dog, and this was her second attack in a month and the prognosis was so poor after almost a week of efforts to save her, we put her down peacefully.

Suspected Pancreatitis
Amount: $650.00
Posted by: lissette in santa cruz, CA.Posted: June 10th, 2010 11:06AM
Breed: poodleTreatment: xray, painkiller,
Vet: S.C Pacific
I am not sure if its necessary to do the fluid flush for my pup, as he gets more stressed by being in the doctor's office, but of course the vets recommend it. Based on internet research it also suggests witholding food for a couple of days, which I am thiniking of doing instead of hospitalization. The majority of the bill was just for the exams, 200 for in house tests, 200 for x rays, 35 for pain killer, 140 for idexx cpl...hopsitalization would probably be thousands.

She is a 12 year old dog in good health. This seemed to develop after eating a rawhide chewie. Just started treatment and not sure yet of outcome but am questioning the cost and her pain and suffering given her age and possible complications that can arise.
