Pancreatitis in Cats





Has your cat been diagnosed with pancreatitis? If so, there is so much you can do to help your cat feel better with a simple holistic approach. Pancreatitis in cats occurs when the pancreas becomes inflamed. Inflammation usually affects the digestive enzymes of the pancreas. There are two forms of pancreatitis – acute and chronic pancreatitis. Symptoms of pancreatitis in cats include loss of appetite, fever, weight loss, dehydration, fatigue, depression, tender abdomen and increased heart rate.

Chronic Pancreatitis in Cats

Of the two types of pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis in cats is more common. This is a long-term disease in which the pancreatitis can have flareups. One of the key causes of flareups is your cat's diet. Most pet foods contain fillers such as corn, wheat, rice, legumes that can cause inflammation over time. Dietary management and a few natural supplements can be lifechanging for your cat. The goal of the holistic treatment is to use digestive enzymes that break down the protein and fats making it easier for your cat to digest food. This takes the burden off the pancreas and helps your cat feel more comfortable. Avoiding chemicals, fillers, food allergens can also make a tremendous difference. Many pet owners are not aware that the "premium" food they are feeding is actually contributing to their cat's condition.

Cat Pancreatitis Treatment

Cats require both short-term and long-term treatment of pancreatitis. Short-term, fluid therapy will be needed for cats that are diagnosed with pancreatitis. Food may need to be withheld for up to 48 hours if the cat is vomiting. Your veterinarian may also prescribe corticosteroids and metronidazole for chronic pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis can lead to kidney failure, respiratory failure or death. Treatment of acute pancreatitis should include plasma administration.

For long-term management of pancreatitis, cats need to eat a reduced fat, anti-inflammatory diet free of grains. Also, using digestive enzymes specific for pancreatitis is essential.






Cats with pancreatitis can be finicky eaters so it's important to use supplements that are tasteless and easy to administer.

Lypozyme for Pets is a powerful yet small, easy to administer powdered natural enzyme that can be mixed into food. It is veterinary-approved and has a stronger potency and purity than digestive enzymes purchased at a pet store. Cats will generally eat it readily as it has minimal taste and odor. Why are digestive enzymes necessary? Pets with pancreatitis need an enzyme specially formulated to help them break down fats and protein. This takes the workload off the pancreas and digestive system. Safe, natural, made with NO FILLERS. Made in the USA

Power Probiotic - Lypozyme works best when used in conjunction with Power Probiotic. Power Probiotic is the best probiotic for pets. Backed by scientific research, this powerful multi-strain supplement promotes the growth of friendly bacteria which are essential to a healthy digestive system. Power Probiotic helps relieve discomfort associated with pancreatitis. Critical to use if your pet has taken antibiotics and steroids. Most cats love the taste too (please click on the link to view video of a cat scarfing down Power Probiotic).



Since the liver and intestinal tract are integrally related to the health of the pancreas, using the Liver/Gallbladder Support will help your kitty's pancreatic function and overall health. Power Probiotic and Lypozyme are included in the Kit along with the Liver/Gallbladder Support. The Liver/Gallbladder Support contains herbs and which will be more noticeable to your cat.

Oliver

“Our cat Oliver was diagnosed with pancreatitis and was hospitalized. He was very listless and didn't want to eat. We were so worried about him. It is very hard to give him medicine but I was SO glad the Lypozyme pills were so small and it was easy to give to him. I opened the capsules and mixed them with the Power Probiotic (which he liked the taste of) in his canned food. It really seemed to help his appetite and gave us our kitty back. He hasn't had another flareup since. Thank you!" Lynette, Los Angeles
