Here is a very good article for you to read
Canine Pancreatitis - Whole Dog Journal Article

One of my dogs had a bout with pancreatitis about 1 yr ago. We don't know what triggered it. At first we put him on Science Diet product and fed him that for about a month or so. The food is very low fat. This particular dog is a competitive field trial dog and that diet just didn't have enough calories for him to perform and he acted starving all the time.

After talking with several Vets from the working dog world, we slowly brought him back onto his normal food... took about 2 months adding little by little and watching for any reaction. He did well with the transition and is now back on his regular diet.

Mine got lucky, and this is something to take serious. Do as much reading on it as you can......

What is the fat content of the Stella & Chewy raw food? It needs to be low, low, low. I had a senior dog that would suffer bouts of pancreatitis. While in the middle of an inflammation she would only get IV fluid. When she started showing interest in food again I started with cooked rice then I added in low fat ground beef that I cooked, drained and rinsed to get all the fat out that I could. I forget what the diet was that she was on between times. I think I cooked for her so I could control the fat content.
