Small dog with pancreatitis, raw diet recipe?

My small dog , 5.5 lbs of the most important thing in my whole life was being baby sat by my mother, and from what i understand somehow he got into ham and pork, diegsted a ton of it, now has pancreatitis.

He is on raw diet, and it is VERY balanced. below i have writen down basically wht it consists of. Now he needs VERY bland diet. The vet recomended Royal Canin prescribed food. But the first ingredients are fish, water, meat by product, rice, corn meal (it is a canned food). Which doesnt sound good at all.

I heard to have low fat, high fiber, bland. I also heard that fish is good? maybe?

I was thinking white fish or chicken breast, and 1 veggie (high in fiber like kidney beans or spinach), maybe add a bit of brown rice or barley???

i would LOVE suggestions. Thank you so much in advance!

Answer on Small dog with pancreatitis, raw diet recipe?

Last Spring, my 16 yr old Chi suffered a bout of pancreatitis and after a 4 day stay at the vet hospital, the vet prescribed the same Royal Canin prescription food. My dog would not touch it. So, I cooked some chicken and rice and fed that to him in very small amounts. He didn't have much of an appetite, but the vet said that was okay since a little lack of appetite will give the pancreas more time to rest which speeds recovery. Your raw diet recipe looks very complete, but I really do think you should keep him on the chicken and rice for a few days. Hope he's feeling better soon.
