Default Re: Newly diabetic pug - HELP!

Yeah the high sugar can cause a growth in yeast and bacteria

I think if your dog has diabetic cataracts they need to take drops to keep the eyes from ulcerating and things like that which you are seeing . Sometimes talking to a specialist in matters like this can be helpful.

Good news the dose increase seems to be reducing diabetic symptoms. That is also important with testing blood sugar in managing the disease . Especially in the early stages.

The eye problems and the medication that goes along with it may affect blood sugar up or down so something to be aware of .

It can get a bit rough in the beginning . You two will get through this together
