My daughter's dog, a Chihuahua mix, has been diagnosed with "probable" pancreatitis, but this hasn't been verified 100%. Noel (dog) had an X-ray, which of course didn't show up anything, and a blood test.

She's 10 years old, was healthy and running around one day, then the next day she wouldn't eat, drink any water, had trouble urinating outside (instead urinated on herself and couldn't squat), and just can't get comfortable lying down; she sits, gets up, walks around a bit, then tries to sit down again. She seems so miserable, and we don't know what to do.

The vet said to just let her rest and to try to get at least 2 1/2 cups of water in her, with a syringe if necessary! Has anyone else ever experienced this with their dog? Any advice would be appreciated!
