Ultra-low fat diets for the management of chronic pancreatitis

Nutrition has become a mainstay of our approach to manage a variety of clinical issues. This is especially true when dealing with pancreatitis and many veterinarians have realized the potential of low-fat diets as part of their treatment plan.

This study aims at evaluating the benefits of an ultra low-fat diet specifically engineered to reduce the workload on the chronically inflamed pancreas.

Inclusion criteria:

  • cPLI (≥ 400 µg/L )
  • Triglycerides > 500 mg/dL
  • Absence of renal and/or liver/concurrent  disease


  • Complimentary GI panels, serum chemistries and complete blood counts
  • Free overnight shipping
  • Dog food
  • $ 250 owner compensation upon completion

Final enrollment is based on the outcome of a second GI panel, a complete blood count and serum chemistry. To patient owners considering enrollment we would like to show our appreciation by supplying our diagnostic tests complimentary.
