Default Re: Husky owner with diabetes questions

Hi and welcome!

It seems my other friends here already know the answer to this, but what kind of insulin are you using? That can make a big differeNce on the starting dose as well.

Other than that, I'll tell you that we started out on a 'diabetic' food, got Vinny pretty much regulated, then figured out he had lost too much weight. We changed his food and have since seen some changes in his energy level and weight and his coat looks better. You will hear this over and over...every dog is different and you have to do what works for your dog. AND it might take awhile to figure out what that is.

This diabetes thing takes a lot of patience and sometimes a lot of ingenuity.
Hang in there!
Mel: My monster is Vinny! He's a black lab, diagnosed with diabetes June 21, 2013. His birthdate was celebrated the last weekend of May. He left this world on July 27, 2018, he was 12 years old.
