Re: My Max, one year since diagnosis

Congrats on a year! You are doing great! Once you get past the learning stage, it becomes your routine and life goes on. I didnít realize how strong I was until Maggie became diabetic.

Re: My dog Charlie was just diagnosed with Diabetes...

Congrats on a year! I remember back that I was always so nervous about Maggie. It took me a couple of years to start buying decent quantities of supplies, because I was sure she wouldnít make it much...

Re: FDA APPROVES 2nd CANINE INSULIN:PROZINC

I would say that the one meal thing would work for some dogs and not for others. Maggie always would start throwing up that foamy stuff if she didnít eat four times a day. She would get a sour...

Re: New Diagnosis :( Our Saga & Questions

If you are up to it, you might consider home testing. It is easier on the dog and you can get a better idea of how your dog is doing at different times. Not every dog experiences lows according to...

Re: Diabetes, Cushings and Pancreatitis in my Dog

Switching at this point shouldnít hurt. If things were going good, I would say donít change but it seems there is much room to improve. Plus, you can always go back. Also, NPH is more affordable and...

Re: Diabetes, Cushings and Pancreatitis in my Dog

Regarding food - there are many foods that have worked well for diabetics. My dog was very picky and hated my cooking worse than any commercial food. I found commercial diets easier because I didnít...

Re: Lily - My English Setter

Re: Blood sugar all over the place

You really have to get a handle on the treats thing - I know it is hard on other people like your dad feeling sorry for him and thinking that giving treats isnít really hurting him. You may just have...

Re: Do you give your dog probiotics?

Fortiflora was the only brand Maggie would tolerate being put in her food. She was so picky if she even smelled anything off, she would not eat. She seemed to like the Fortiflora and it seemed to...

Re: My dog was just diagnosed with diabetes ketoacidosis

I dealt with pancreatitis for years with Maggie. Force feeding is not a good idea - their body is rejecting food for a reason and trying to force them to eat can cause a relapse. We always tried...

Re: Switching from Vetsulin to Humulin N

My dog would not eat prescription food. She lived almost 9 years with diabetes so it is entirely possible. The key is moderate protein, low fat and moderate carbs. There are so many possibilities out...

Re: Levi - new thread

I know it is hard in the beginning but you really can get this figured out.

First, are you still using lantus? How much and how often? Have you checked on the prospect of finding some lower cost...

Re: BC Bean the Medical Weirdo

I only have a few things to mention with the already good advice you have gotten. Being out of familiar places can cause some anxiety (even if she is acting normal) so, numbers may be higher or lower...

Re: Cushing's, Diabetes and Hypothyroid

Well, her curve is practically a straight line. At least, she is not having wild swings from high to low and all over the place.

I had the same thought as Holli that now that she is on thyroid...

Re: Questions about Humalog

Lantus has not proven to be a good fit for dogs. I would recommend starting with a NPH insulin. Many of us used the Novolin N from WalMart here in the states as it is about $24 a bottle. I donít know...

Re: Cushing's, Diabetes and Hypothyroid

Re: Cushing's, Diabetes and Hypothyroid

I am a bit concerned that all those raises were done without 12hour curves. It might have shown the same thing but I donít think you can base dosing without some complete 12 hour curves. My Maggie...

Re: Cushing's, Diabetes and Hypothyroid

Do I understand that no treatment for Cushings has happened yet? I think the problem is that many diabetic dogs have been deemed as potential Cushings if there is even slight resistance. I was told...

Re: Sweet Pippa's journey has ended... August 19, 2018

So sorry about Tiggy! She was an inspiration to so many and her story is a great reminder that diabetic dogs can live a normal life span and thrive.

Thank you for sharing her with us! Wishing you...
