It can be dispersed in small patches throughout the cat’s pancreas.Because the three-organ system that is involved in delivering food nutrients to your cat are often attacked simultaneously, it is sometimes called Triaditis.If the leakage is severe, toxic remnants of destroyed tissue can enter the pet’s blood stream causing body-wide damage.Repeated flare-ups eventually scar your cat’s pancreas so badly that it cannot perform its duties.
