The low-fat options of Blue Buffalo Senior and Innova Low-Fat Adult are commercial dog foods recommended for pancreatitis by Dog Food Advisor and Fetch, the website of The Fish & Bone pet supply store. Other brands also fit the suggested diet for dogs suffering from pancreatitis and related digestive disorders.
Most low-fat dog foods also are low in protein, so it's important to make sure the protein content is sufficient, according to the Dog Food Advisor. The site recommends Nature’s Logic Canine Sardine Meal Feast, which contains 40 percent protein and 10 percent fat, and the Addiction brand Venison and Apple canned dog food, which has 10 percent fat and 45 percent protein.
Veterinary researchers recommend low-fat foods because dietary fat contributes to pancreatitis by secreting a hormone that induces the pancreas to secrete its digestive hormones, reports PetMD.
