Default Re: Diabetes, Cushings and Pancreatitis in my Dog

The pancreatitis is the biggest problem . My jesse had it at the beginning of this journey and spent 10 days in hospital

I changed her to a homemade diet and one meal a day and haven't seen a full blown episode . There were a few times with digestive issues and fasted her for 24 hours which got her back on track

Maybe something in the diet that may not be agreeing with the pancreas but diabetes and cushings can stress out organs

do you have any information on blood sugar and what levels your dog is at ?

definitely recommend testing sugar at home especially with added challenges
