|Right, but the point is it can take 4-48 hours to develop no matter the cause (there is a long list of causes).
So, could it of been the chicken back? yes. BUT, could it have been the combination of things he had to eat over the two days preceding? yes.
Could it have been an infection, medications (including supplements), trauma, genetic abnormalities, or even a tumor? Yes.
There are many many causes and it pretty much impossible to say one chicken back caused it. Especially considering raw had been fed much more than that one time in this situation. Perhaps the combo of kibble and raw was too much fat, or maybe it was just a little off but then your dog got an infection on top of it. Unfortunately pancreatitis causes elevated WBC's so it would have been expected and sometimes infections aren't even looked for unless there isn't improvement with fluids and bowel rest.
I am sorry you lost your dog. I know feeling like there was one thing that did it might make it feel better. But, I am coming from an outside scientific/medical view, not the emotional one of losing a beloved pet.
ETA: this is directed at Cody as I was typing when other posts were added!
