Default Re: Not sure what to do.....

Most vets do want to stay with prescription insulin, but not always for the right reasons.

Do what's best for your dog. Vets should be willing to try different things, that's how you find the right combination of aspects that achieve regulation.

Vets work for us and our pets. If they seem more concerned about their needs, you can make a change.

My vet, at the beginning, wanted to use caninsulin but gave me the option, that was good. She strongly insisted on their food, I said no way, and once she knew I had a mind of my own, we worked better together.
