    I have just had my bulldog pathology results back today and they said that she had died of acute pancreatitis. What i want to know is would have she had this in the kennel because she was in there for 2 weeks, i only had her back for 24 hours and then she died. Could have the kennel neglected the signs that my dog was ill and could this have contributed to her death.
    My bulldog was healthy and had a healthy weight and only ate dried food so it puzzles me why she had this condition. Could it be caused by trauma. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    i just googled it as i wasnt sure what it was and what symptoms it has but i wouldve thought your dog wouldve showed some of the signs if not all if she/he died from it. The kennels shouldve noticed it and taken her/him to the vets

    Pancreatitis in the dog just looked here about the symptoms e.t.c

    Have you told the kennel the dog died? x

    Yes i told the kennel as soon as she died and they are trying to say that she was fine in there but i find that hard to believe considering i had her back 24 hours later and then she died showing me no symptoms

    If she died showing you no symptoms then is it possible that she did not have any symptoms while in the kennels?

    She should have shown some of those or nearly all of those symptoms while in kennels I'd certainly look into negligence on the kennels part where your dog was concerned, I'm so sorry :(

    Contact Trevor Cooper see what he thinks, he specialises in all areas of Dog Law and may beable to assist you :)

    Thanks for advice. I have emailed the kennel today with the results of the pathology tests and informed them that i think she was bound to be showing symptoms, whether these symptoms were overlooked by negligence, i think they must have been because I WILL not accept that a healthy dog will die of such a condition as pancriatitis and not show any symptoms of poor health before hand. I am just a bit puzzled about what my rights as a dog owner are and where i stand legally on this matter.

    Give Trevor Cooper a ring so he can advise you of where you may stand legally :)

    I don't know, but would presume most of his work is done over the phone and via post :)

    I've never had to deal with him, but I wouldn't hesitate in ringing him if I did have a problem as I've heard he is very good and deals with all aspects of dog law :)

    I feel for you i nearlly lost my dog to pancritis he went down hill in a matter of hours he walked hunched over as his tummy was so sore he had acute sickness and runs there was green bile in his sick. He ended up in the vets for 3 days and was on pain killers fluid drip and anti flam tablets and anti sickness injection. I find it hard to believe that your kennels say they had no sighs i knew within 2 hours there was something seriously wrong with my dog. It can be caused through stress, infection and to higher fat content in the diet. so sorry to here you lost your doggie with it. Mine has had 3 lots now and hes on a strick diet and we know the sighs straight away and hes on treatment with no hestation to get it to kick in before it gets bad. Have been told my vet that it can be fatal our selfs so its always a worring time. hope you have luck trying to get a response form the doglaw and that you find out why the kennels missed all the sighs.
