  • Dog just diagnosed with diabetes

    My son's dog had some pee accidents while she was sleeping this weekend, so I took her in to vet, worried about UTI. Since she is 9,5 yrs old, I also wanted blood work to rule out kidney problems and diabetes. Well, she has diabetes. So we started I nsulin last night, got lecture about keeping feeding time and shot time as close as possible to exactly 12 hrs apart, and BE CONSISTENT. Also got sold very expensive Science Diet W/D for her to eat as "the best possible diet for diabetes". And orders for her to lose 6 lbs.

    So first I would like to ask for any helpful advice anyone has on keeping a senior diabetic dog healthy. My son loves this dog dearly, she is just the sweetest thing. And second, help me accept that she has to eat this science diet crap. I read the ingredients. I'm paying 80 bucks for a bag of food and the first ingredient is wheat?!!! chicken meal is the 4 th ingredient and first meat???? WTH.

    While it wouldn't be my pick for a long term food, it can be really helpful for weight loss and IIRC, the relatively high fiber levels can help with maintaining a stable blood glucose level.

      thanks Marshfield
      I was thinking I would feed this a few months and see if she loses any weight. Once she is where she should be, I would like to find a food that seems more nutritious but still high fiber. Do you have any you recommend?

   was a good source for W/D a few years ago. Dog thrived on the stuff until he passed due to other causes.
