Homemade dog food for pancreatitis

If your dog has pancreatitis, he needs to eat pumpkin. The fiber in pumpkin helps dogs stabilize the blood sugar levels that contribute to pancreatitis in dogs.

Nutrition  Pumpkin is a healthy dietary fiber. It contains many vitamins and minerals, especially A, B, and C. In addition, it has mild anti-inflammatory effects in dogs suffering from pancreatitis. It includes a variety of nutrients such as beta-carotene to help improve your dog’s energy level and immune system.

Homemade dog food for pancreatitis


Dogs love people food, and it’s commonly recommended to share your leftovers with Fido when he’s looking up at you with sad eyes. However, there are certain foods that should never be shared with dogs — including onions, garlic, avocado, and grapes — and some foods that aren’t toxic but better avoided due to their high fat content. While most dogs are fine eating a higher fat diet than humans (even one that contains small amounts of bacon grease), a dog suffering from pancreatitis should have a low-fat diet until his symptoms improve. Luckily, there are plenty of homemade dog food recipes for pancreatitis that will allow your furry friend to get the nutrients he needs while avoiding the fats that could irritate his pancreas. Here are three of my favorite options:

Pumpkin dog food

  • Pumpkin is a good source of fiber and beta carotene.
  • Pumpkin is also rich in vitamin A, potassium, and magnesium.

Egg and cottage cheese dog food

  • How to prepare the food:
  • Soft boiled egg yolk and cottage cheese are two ingredients that both have high levels of protein, which is important for pancreatitis patients. The dog should eat well as soon as possible. If you have a small dog and want to feed them in tiny portions every hour or so, you may need less than half an egg and just a tablespoon of cottage cheese per serving. If your dog is larger, you can use more—maybe 1/3 cup each. You should be able to feed these foods once or twice per day depending on how much they are eating.
  • What to feed dogs with pancreatitis: If you think your dog has pancreas disease, it’s best to make sure they get plenty of protein in their diet since this organ produces enzymes needed by other organs (like kidneys) for optimal function.* What kind of foods contain lots of protein? Eggs are one option but there are many others including chicken thighs or wings (which also contain good amounts of iron), beef heart (also rich in iron), wild salmon (which contains omega 3 fatty acids). If neither eggs nor meat products appeal then try tofu made from soybeans – it’s healthy too!

Apple, veggies, and chicken for dogs

Apple, veggies, and chicken for dogs

Apple cider vinegar is a great source of enzymes that aid in digestion. If you’re making homemade dog food for your furry friend with pancreatitis, mix up some applesauce using organic apples. The fiber from these fruits will help them digest their food more easily. You can also use it as a salad dressing!

Chicken is an excellent source of protein—especially if you’re concerned about your dog getting enough nutrition from their homemade diet (which often happens when switching to a fresh food regimen). Chicken contains B vitamins like niacin and thiamine that are important for metabolizing carbohydrates into energy while maintaining muscle mass. Chicken also contains choline which helps convert fat into amino acids so they can be used by cells throughout the body including brain tissue.[3]

There are some good low fat recipes you can try.

There are many low fat recipes you can try. Here are some:

  • Cottage cheese and pumpkin – 1/4 cup of cottage cheese and 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin (or you could substitute with low-sodium chicken broth or plain Greek yogurt) mixed together to make a paste. Then add it to your dog’s food bowl.
  • Egg yolk, cottage cheese, and parsley – this recipe is similar to the above recipe but uses parsley instead of pumpkin and it’s more nutritious as well. You can also add some cottage cheese if you want more protein in your dog’s diet!
  • Apple cooked with egg whites – this one is really easy because all you have to do is slice up two apples (or one big one), put them in a baking dish coated with nonstick spray or olive oil, then sprinkle them with cinnamon then top with beaten egg whites before baking at 375 degrees Fahrenheit until tender (about 20 minutes).


There are many recipes out there for homemade food for dogs with pancreatitis, but you should always ensure that the ingredients you use are healthy and nutritious. You can also try making your own treats by using a few simple ingredients, like applesauce or eggs. If you have questions about which foods should be avoided in dog food recipes (such as oils) then contact your vet before starting any new recipe.
