You all remember a few weeks ago I took a urine sample in to the vet as Pooh Bear was drinking water a lot and peeing often. The urine sample showed some blood in it and then blood work showed his pancreas levels up. The vet questioned what we were feeding him and found that we had been feeding him ham recently. Vet said no ham or pork, that that could have been the problem. I have been watching him like a hawk and feeding only dog food and Milk Bone Dog Bisquits and boiled chicken for treat. He acts ok, just somewhat lethargic. Still drinks lots of water. He is a laid back fella anyway, but he is more wanting to just lay around. I took another urine sample in today to be rechecked. He still has blood in his urine. But no white blood cells which would indicate an infection. The vet is sending the urine off to be cultured to look for cancers. That scares me to death! She wants to rule out any cancers. If cancers are ruled out, she is going to put him on an antibiotic and try to get rid of whatever this problem is. I am praying for no cancers!!

Our vet said not to feed pork or ham to dogs. I'm not sure exactly what it does. But in some dogs it can cause Pancreatitis. And I think you can get Pancreatitis from eating fatty foods.

Here is something from an Internet site:

"In a large number of cases, according to Dr. XXXX, the cause of pancreatitis remains unknown. During holiday seasons, especially Christmas and Thanksgiving, Dr. XXX says he sees many more cases of pancreatitis at the clinic due to high fatty meals."
