Default Re: Diabetes and Blindness! Did your dog go blind?!

My maltipoo was diagnosed Feb. 2017, and so far so good. Has a small cataract in one eye that is stable.

I add foods that are high in betacarotene and other good eye nutrients. Sweet potato, wild blueberries, green beans, pumpkin.

I only add about a tablespoon of 2 of those at each meal. Breakfast he gets sweet potato or pumpkin, and a tblsp. of his pinto beans/oatmeal (for extra fibre.) Supper he gets blueberries and beans/oatmeal.
He's regulated accounting for that in his diet.
Riley, 8 yr. old maltipoo, 25 lbs., diagnosed Feb 2017, taking thyroid meds, had pancreatitis and DKA mid March, eating Wellness Senior formula can food. NPH dosage now at 9.0 units Humulin N. Adding either pumpkin, spinach, blueberries, yams, or green beans to his food. Also omega-3 oil.
