Don’t Treat Your Pet to Pancreatitis this Holiday Season

By: Jamie Jordan

   We unfortunately see many cases of Pancreatitis around the holiday season. With all the

treats available this time of year it’s important to know that what’s okay for you may not be good

for your pets. It is a common thought that preparing a holiday plate for your pet is a thoughtful way

to show your love, but it can have serious (and potentially expensive) health repercussions,

including pancreatitis. To help keep everyone safe we have put together a list of things for

your pet to avoid this holiday season: Xylitol (an artificial sweetener found in gum and some

peanut butter), chocolate, grapes, onions,  spoiled or fatty foods, turkey bones, raisins,

alcohol, coffee, tea leaves, garlic, and raw yeast dough are just to name a few. Some

signs of pancreatitis include (but are not limited to), lethargy, vomiting, fever, and diarrhea.

Symptoms may vary so if your pet ingests these items, please contact your local veterinarian


A Special Thank You

If we haven’t told you lately, we are truly grateful for all the love and support we have received

from our community. Our ACAH bake sale was a huge success, and we have all of you to

thank. So thank you to the clients and staff that baked, purchased, and donated to our

abandoned animal fund. We have been able to help a great and growing number of special case

abandoned animals, and it is because of all of your kind hearts that we can continue our mission.

-The ACAH Team
