Diabetes can be managed successfully with a daily routine of insulin treatment, diet and exercise
The goal of managing diabetes is to get your diabetic dog back to being as healthy and happy as possible. Insulin treatment is used to reduce elevated blood glucose, which reduces or eliminates signs, such as excessive thirst and urination and weight loss. Insulin dose needs to be managed carefully to avoid lower than normal blood glucose (hypoglycemia) and any associated signs, which occur when the dose is too high for your dog’s needs.
You will work with your veterinarian to give insulin every day to improve or eliminate your dog’s clinical signs whilst avoiding (low blood glucose concentrations).
