Re: Update on Athena

I am not concerned about the dose of insulin and serious resistance until a dog is receiving 1 unit per pound per injection and still has high blood sugar. This is particularly true in dogs with...

If so, her blood sugar could be...

Re: Can't get back to the normal curve

Supplements like this at most might reduce the amount of insulin you have to give - they won't cure canine diabetes. They could potentially help a feline diabetic go into remission as cats are more...

Re: How long has your dog lived with diabetes so far (Jan 2018)

Aw... I know what you mean. But it can help, I think, to realize that you're working with an incredibly sensitive, complicated body system that has connections to just about everything else. It's...

Re: Procedure Used by Vet's to Regulate Dog Diabetes

Re: Diabetes, Cushings and Pancreatitis in my Dog

Re: New member Snowball

I don't worry about a high number until it's a trend - is the high fasting level of blood sugar typical for her or was this a one-off?

Re: Diabetes, Cushings and Pancreatitis in my Dog
