    Like the last thread my Cavalier Lola had suspected Pancreatitis when I took her to the vets a few weeks ago as she cried everytime we touched her tummy. They did blood tests but nothing was conclusive. They suggested a low fat diet and suggested chappie. Not a problem as my 4 plus my daughters pup who is staying at he moment eat anything incase another eats it. Problem is Lola has always been fat, she only has short legs and she is as wide as she is high!! None of the others is remotely fat and she eats less than any of them, she doesnt gobble it down like them. I have often wondered if she may have thyroid problems although no other symptoms except I have never seen her actually run, only a fast trot!!

    Rabbit is a lean meat, so you could give her rabbit mince now and then.
    Don't really know about dry/wet foods though.

    I'd up her exercise ever so slightly though, maybe get her into some hydrotherapy? Haven't seen the other thread so not sure what's been suggested..
