Dog Health Treatment & Advice : How to Treat Diabetes in Dogs

October 29, 2019


Hi, I’m Dr. Aimee Beger. I’m a veterinarian,
and today, we’re going to be talking about diabetes in your pet. Diabetes, we typically
see in pets that were previously overweight that are now drinking copious amounts of water
and and losing weight. Ways to treat your dog’s diabetes, of course, are first to determine
that they do indeed have it, which is typically done by a blood test at your veterinarian,
and they will find that your dog has a high glucose level, or a sugar level. Then, they
will recommend putting your pet on a high protein, low carbohydrate diet. There are
several out there that we do recommend. And also lastly, to get your start, your dog started
on a a regiment of insulin injections that would be given on a daily basis at home to
regulate your dog’s glucose, or sugar levels. Other things that we recommend are doing weekly
glucose checks, or glucose curves throughout the day to determine that your dog is regulated
on an on a daily basis, and there are pet glucometers out there that you can purchase
as well to check this glucose, or sugar level at home. And here, we have the Alpha Trak
glucometer, which is made specifically for pets, dogs and cats. You don’t want to use
a human glucometer at home because they’re often not accurate in dogs and cats. There
are little testing strips that come with your glucometer. And then, one of the diabetic
foods that we like here is DM by Purina for cats. And then also, you want to use a veterinarian
approved insulin which would be by prescription only, and make sure you’re using the proper
insulin syringes.

  1. I feel worried about constantly checking blood levels being a former diabetes sufferer thought I would die with diabetes

  2. ”fizo amazing plan” (Google it) gives all diabetic patients the opportunity to reverse their condition by attempting a new way of living according to the plan. With this, you`ll know how fat is the main cause why the cells reject glucose which functions as the food of the cells in the body. No doubt, I trust “fizo amazing plan” (Google it) in saving my life.

  3. 😇About 2 months ago when I started this program my blood sugar count was at 332 and my kidneys were in very poor condition.

    Just today I was given my results from my last physical and can report that my blood sugar count is 110 and my kidney function is just slightly elevated. when I was first diagnosed, I weighed over 250 pounds and my blood pressure was high. I now weigh 193 pounds and my blood pressure is normal, for more information about this program, click here :  t.co/hRm89tHf8G

  4. How come all dogs have got this illness all of sudden dogs and cats but street dogs and cats never get this illness you can reverse this just by walking pet and changing its diet and its common sense stop sugars and sweets i use sweet potatoes carrots pork sausages bottled water small piece of salt it works fine

  5. Not certain about the points made but ,if anyone else wants to discover try Panlarko Amazing Diabetes Planner (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now ) ? Ive heard some amazing things about it and my m8 got cool results with it.
