In humans at least, fatty foods exacerabate pancreatitis but to my knowledge do not cause it. Pancreatitiscan be caused by steroids (so the Prednisone may have contributed to the development anddecreasing the dose was probably helpful). Pancreatitis may also be associated with biliary tract

Belinda, I think that fatty foods cause pancreatitis (when it is caused by foods at all, which is not always the case), not raw foods. Raw meat diets tend to be rather low in fat, actually, depending on what you are feeding. I do not think that is what did it if it was pancreatitis.
