My Sadie, whose father is an American Staffordshire, has almost died from pancreatitis twice. These days I feed her lean chicken cooked with rice & vegetables. At times, when she looks like she’s putting on some weight, I substitute the rice with cauliflower rice. She’s doing great. She’s 13 years old now. Also, when triglycerides are normal, it was so high for a long time.
