Default Re: Who's dog here has recieved cataract surgery? If so please help!

Cataracts wouldn’t happen again because they are in the lens, but other problems can occur.

I think it depends on the dog. I would just test and make adjustments if blood sugar spikes.

Default Re: Mochi has damaged his eye...worried

My vet is always against me changing the dosage of insulin. He tells me to stick with his dose...

I'm not sure if I should tamper with the dosage.
I'm monitoring the amount of water he is drinking and it seems to be pretty ok right now. However he drinks a lot more than usual in the morning.

Has anyone ever used this many different types of medication before??

Being that the meds are temporary, you might want to just stay the course for insulin and food. The meds can affect blood sugar differently every day, so trying to adjust and correct might be crazy. Too unpredictable I expect.

Well I think your getting ahead of yourself in anticipating what blood sugar will do and medication may not be a big affect on sugar . Temporarily higher sugar usually does not affect dogs . From being on the forum medication doesnt seem to have a huge affect on sugar .

Ok thank you..I will not adjust anything for now.

Poor guy is exhausted from barely being able to sleep. We wake him up every hour to do drops..hes so tired he stopped fighting us while we try putting the drops in.

I really hope his eye heals..

Default Anyone have any recommendations to a hypoallergenic food that's low in fat?

https://www.cbc.ca/news/health/dog-f...-fda-1.5199186

I have read on the news again with the grain free dog foods causing heart disease..
I am very concerned even though the brand of food mochi is eating isn't listed on there it's still grain free..

I know some of you have dogs that also have high triglycerides..is there anything you can reccomend?

Also...has anyone ever heard of this hilarys blend?
My vet technician friend recommended it for me to start doing home made meals for mochi. It comes will the full nutritional value supplements to mix in the home made meals.

I have gave jesse a homemade meal her entire diabetic life . I added supplements but i removed them for the most part except calcium from grind up egg shells and i have been giving her milk thistle for the last year . I also give her a vitabone which is kind of a vitamin for her .

Now jesse gets no grain in her homemade diet except for maybe the vitabone

My opinion if there is a problem with commercial dog food its maybe because its processed . Human processed foods they say is not the healthiest diet

I dont see how grain free is a problem or having grain is a problem

I think we get a bit nutty with the whole thing
