G'day Dog Lovers,

Last weekend, my Labrador Max was very unwell. He threw up in the morning and it soon became clear that he was not feeling too good at all.

Rather than feeling better straight away as he usually does, he seemed to start feeling worse and worse. He was sick again and seemed very uncomfortable - he was very listless and seemed to be in a lot of pain.

So off we went to the vet where he was diagnosed with a stomach bug, given some medication and sent home. However, the next morning he didn't seem any better - he wasn't even interested in his favourite snack, a piece of toast. When Max turns down food you know there's something wrong!

He was also straining to urinate so we went back to the vet the next two days but they still didn't know what was wrong with him. Eventually, tests revealed that he was suffering from pancreatitis (a common problem most probably caused by eating a fatty meal).

After spending several nights in hospital on a drip feeling very sad and sorry for himself, Max eventually recovered and returned home late last week. It's such a relief that he is better!

To find out more about pancreatitis, check out the next issue of Dogs Life (on-sale June 10).
