Default Re: Who took their dog to a specialist? Advice?

"My vet said that most owners don't even check their own curves at home and only do it at the vets periodically. "

I kinda disagree with this. Many people do their own curves. Vets like for you to come to them to charge you. Most vets will always suggest coming to them to do curves. But then we realize it's pretty simple, if you're testing at home.

For diet, just beware of add-ins to their food that are higher in fat or that add more protein.. If you change foods to a kibble that's lower protein and more carb, you may not need to add any carbs, maybe consider adding fiber, in the form of pumpkin, or green beans, pinto beans, etc.
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.
