Re: Diet Change Advice

At one point, our dog was treated by the guy who wrote the book your vet uses for endocrinology. That's unfortunate because he was useless.

Can your dog survive with blood sugar never below 300......

Re: Diet Change Advice

It looks like you aren't getting 12 hours out of the Vetsulin. And certainly the dose needs to go up. There's no reason to leave a dog's blood sugar in this high of a range. Overall, it's a...

Re: Off balance and wobbly

Our dog's blood sugar tended to drop sharply on walks. So if Oliver's blood sugar was already relatively low, he could easily be going hypoglycemic while walking and then his body releasing a sugar...

Re: Border collie Jack

Almost six years later... the heart murmur never caused any serious problems and was maintained at about the same level with taurine supplementation and CoQ10.

Re: Looking for any guidance

Aw... I'm so sorry.

I understand... we just lost our dog (not diabetic) to cancer after he lost the use of his back end from a mass impinging on the spinal cord. Developed quickly and went...

Re: Archive and main website

Particularly helpful are videos of how people have tested their dogs' blood sugar using various places: lip, base of tail, and callouses.

Re: New member looking for advice

You can inject in many different areas. We started with the scruff but it built up scar tissue quickly. So we moved to the side of the chest just behind the front shoulder and that didn't develop the...

Re: New diabetic ,first at home curve. I need help understanding.

Is it definitely just an infection? No damage to cornea? Or inflammation in the eyes?

Those kinds of problems contribute to the rubbing and the rubbing can damage the eyes.

Most dogs don't mind the injections at all. Main exceptions being Min Pins, who are notorious for being uncooperative, and dachsunds! LOL

Re: Just Diagnosed Wednesday - totally stressed!
