Default Re: Weight Loss

Welcome! As far as protein goes, you want a moderate amount of protein - high protein tends to make blood sugar unstable. With intermediate acting insulin, some carbs are essential to getting your dog regulated.

You could feed a ton of food but until you get your dog’s blood sugar down on a regular basis, the food just passes through without doing any good.

I would recommend testing blood sugar at home since your vet is so far away.
