The current study presents current data on the evolution and prevalence of pancreatitis in dogs examined in the Agervet Târgovişte Clinic, Dâmboviţa County. Out of the 573 dogs with digestive disorders, 56 (9.77%) were diagnosed with pancreatitis. Twenty-one patients were male and 35 were female patients, aged 5 to 17 years. The clinical picture was polymorphic, and blood examination showed alterations in biochemical parameters. Based on the history of the clinical data, combined with additional examination data we determined that 17 (30.36%) had acute forms, and 39 (69.64%) had chronic forms. For the diagnosis rapid tests were used to assess the level of the specific pancreatic lipase. Also, histopathological examination was performed. Fibrosis, acinar atrophy and lymphocytic infiltration indicated the chronic form, while the pancreatic cell necrosis and neutrophilic infiltration indicated the acute form.
